Bad Samaritan leaves disabled car with ‘Trump’ sticker stuck in snowstorm, boasts about it online

According to a post on his Facebook page, Troy Brown of Winchester, Ohio, was driving last Tuesday during the blizzard that blanketed much of the Midwest. When he noticed that a car had slid off the road, he pulled over, planning to come the aid of the female motorist. That’s until he noticed the Trump bumper sticker on the woman’s car and decided to drive on, leaving the hapless driver to fend for herself.

Brown ended the post with the spiteful hashtag #CallYoPresident,” along with three laughing emoticons. So how many of the nearly 700 responses his post received from friends and acquaintances were critical of his callousness? Suffice it to say far too few.

In fact, it gets better. According to Kieran Corcoran of HeatStreet, Brown tried to capitalize on the incident by creating a line of merchandise — t-shirts, hoodies, and the like — with the photo of the imperiled car on it, promising any gear his fellow ghouls bought would be “shipped before Christmas.”

Liberals love to preach sermons to the Right about love and tolerance, although those virtues are in short supply on the Left. It would fascinating to hear a liberal explain how what this cretin did doesn’t run counter to the Left’s professed credo.
