Did they really need to do this to her…
Anti-Trump demonstrators encircled a lady carrying a MAGA hat on Wednesday in a monument to the shooting spree that murdered 22 individuals last weekend at El Paso, Texas.
A CBS reporter noted, “Tensions get heated at the site of the memorial in El Paso when a woman wearing a #MAGA hat is surrounded by those who oppose Donald Trump and his visit to El Paso.

You can hear a lady in the audience crying “We don’t negotiate with terrorists.”
Several prominent Democratic leaders objected to Trump’s El Paso trip, blaming him for the shooting, and stirring up the white supremacy behind it. Former Texas Congressman and Democratic presidential contestant Beto O’Rourke quickly blamed Trump for the massacre and proceeded to blame the president in both interviews and commentaries on social media.
Early Wednesday, he tweeted again that “22 people in my hometown are dead after an act of terror inspired by your racism. El Paso will not be quiet and neither will I.”

Texas Democratic Rep. Veronica Escobar, whose congressional district contains El Paso, said Monday that Trump “is not welcome” in her community.
Texas Democratic Rep. Veronica Escobar, whose congressional district contains El Paso, said Monday that Trump “is not welcome” in her community. After being asked during his trip to meet the president, Escobar balked at the chance, telling Chris Cuomo of CNN that she required to speak first to Trump.
“I don’t know that he gets it, Chris. His words have incredible power,” she said. “You walk through all of these families, you walk through to this memorial, you’ll see people in pain. I talked to a veteran earlier to said I’m being made to seem as though I’m not American. The language that he uses … it’s because he doesn’t see Mexicans, Hispanics — He doesn’t see us as human.”
But a couple’s daughter who was murdered in the shooting at El Paso claims it’s the Democratic leaders who have declined to invite President Donald Trump to the town who are unwelcome. Vibora (Deborah) Anchondo described them as “pure evil” Tuesday on Facebook.
Andre and Jordan Anchondo died from shooting while defending their baby. Supporters promote a project by GoFundMe to collect cash for the three orphaned kids of the couple.
“It’s such a shame that two of our local politicians (I refuse to say their names as they don’t deserve it) are saying that our President is not welcome on Wednesday,” Anchondo wrote. “I cannot believe how these monsters are using the tragic event to push their political agenda.”
