    I don’t know this young man but I salute him. Not because he turned his father in but because even through pain he did what’s right. I’m sorry, I don’t like his father. Not because of his views but because these people Violated the one building that means so much to the people. You don’t do that. This is the White House. Everyone, please tell me why? Why so much hate. As much as I have blamed Donald Trump, it’s not all his fault. We have people who willfully follow him even though it’s wrong. Why? Why is he so great to those who hate African Americans? Please cause I’m battling with it. I know I have lived a sheltered life but why do Trump supporters hate me/us? Is this what we want people in the future to remember us by? No disrespect to anyone but don’t other countries hate us? If they attacked us when we were strong, imagine now. Please please please. I don’t want my mix Grandson to have to face what I am facing to this day. When are we going to break this cycle? I love you all. May your days be filled with love and happiness

    Poor boy, he doesn`t know what he is doing. He could be a brainwashed college kid. As for the father, he is no Trump supporter just as John Sullivan wasn`t. All geared up like that? His father was working for somebody, and getting paid, just as J. Sullivan was, both working for fringe groups posing as right and left but devoided of any phylosophy other than destroying America. These extreme right/left paradigma by extreme groups are created and paid by foreign entities with a view to destroying the America. Father and brother are disinformed and both sides of the same coin.

    Donald Trump is pathological (don't take my word for it, read his books, he'll tell you himself). He seems to have an innate sense of how to locate a vulnerable sector of a population and then exploit those vulnerabilities for his own gain, all the time them thinking he is a saviour figure for their fears. Once identified, it's not difficult to fan the flames of fear, and Trump is a master of this. He created a cult, and it will be difficult for people to leave his cult.

    “I took it as a threat but I thought he would act upon it” ... Weird, if I had an abusive psycho dad who eluded to shooting me for being a ‘traitor’ I’d probably believe that they would do harm. - Then he says he did it to prevent a confrontation, so a confrontation is the same as physical abuse/assault? No. Is a ‘confrontation’ worth turning your dad into the FBI for? Lol probably not. Then the wife says he’s ‘passionate’ about whatever interests he has, whatever, and the daughter has to come out and say that she does not feel like her father is a threat to the family... hmmmmmm even stranger?!?! I think this is a case of a self entitled snobby arrogant kid who hasn’t matured yet being angry at his “stoopid frickin dad” for a differing opinion.
