Things got ugly for supporters of Donald Trump outside of a rally at Albuquerque Convention Center on Tuesday. Attendees, including wheelchair bound Dereck Scott, were taunted, harassed, and even assaulted.
The Associated Press reported:
Some protesters even threw water bottles and water at the Trump supporters as they walked along a sidewalk leading to the Albuquerque Convention Center.
Dereck Scott of Albuquerque was among those who were hit with a plastic bottle.
Scott, who is in a wheelchair, said the attack was unprovoked and unnecessary. He says he has a right to vote for the candidate he prefers.
Tuesday’s incident is just the latest in which far-left agitators have violently disrupted peaceful political gatherings.
