Trump Supporter Gets Fired Shorty After Threatening To Run Over Anti-Trump Protestors


Trump Supporter Gets Fired Shorty After Threatening To Run Over Anti-Trump Protestors

Arizona resident James Cobo, who is also a Donald Trump supporter, sent out a threatening message via Facebook to an anti-Trump group. Shortly after the message was sent Cobo was out of a job.

Cobo wrote on the Facebook post:

“You are all pathetic. Cant wait to drive through. 4×4 with push bumper will be sweet in this crowd. I named my lifted truck ‘trumper.’”

The threat did not go unnoticed, and many people were appalled by it as it came less than two weeks after 32-year-old Heather Heyer was killed when she was ran over by a white nationalist in Charlottesville.

On Facebook user who noticed the threat contacted Cobo’s employer.

West Valley Tires Point S sent out a statement just one day after the threat was made.

“West Valley Tires Point S wants to publicly state we do not condone or support violence or prejudice in anyway shape or form,” the automotive repair center said in a statement. “We were recently made aware of an employee that posted outrageous posts and videos that are in no way affiliated with the positive views, values and appreciation we have for people in our community and throughout the world. That person is no longer affiliated with West Valley Tires Point S.”

Cobo said the threat was merely a joke and was being wrongly persecuted.

“I’m being made into a horrible person over a joke that was just meant to ruffle some feathers,” Cobo said in an interview. “I admit it was a tasteless joke, but keyword here is it was a joke. If anybody was ever going to go and intentionally hurt people, why would they talk about it on social media publicly before doing it?”

“I never hurt anybody, nor did I have the intent to,” Cobo said, adding that he has received death threats since his post. “I never said I was actually going to hit anybody with a vehicle. They assumed it. Never would have thought it would be a big deal. I still can’t figure out why I’m being called a racist. I’ve never even said anything racist.”

Cobo went on to attack Heyer, saying, “If you play in the road, you might get hit by a car. My parents taught me that when I was little. Now, her family has $225,000, because she played in the street, and people feel sorry for her family.”
