A anti-Trump customer was thrown out of a DC restaurant for harassing a Trump supporter over simply wearing a MAGA hat.
In his original tweet, TJ Helmstetter claimed to be a victim and made it sound like he was simply “standing up to a Nazi.”
However, when asked about details by Dave Weigel it became clear that his idea of a “Nazi” was simply a customer wearing a MAGA hat.
In addition the customer was doing absolutely nothing wrong and Helmstetter took it upon himself to harass the Trump voter.
Journalist Michael Tracey was not impressed, writing “This guy is just a standard fare Democratic operative, not some wild-eyed radical. It’s really sad that people live this way.”

Then why start the “MAGA hat is racist” narrative again?
He accosted a stranger and then accused him of being a racist with absolutely no knowledge of the man… because of a hat. Then patted himself on the back stating he “stood up to a Nazi”.
When did this become ok?
