“I was really excited to be able to vote this year. I’m about to graduate high school and this is my first time following a presidential election,” said Samantha Powers before the rally. “I keep hearing how important it is to be active in the political process.”
Shortly after the rally started, onlooking protesters that disapproved of Donald Trump and conservatives in general tried to ruin the event. Some were seen jumping on cars, taunting demonstrators, snatching political signs, and throwing water balloons and eggs. Trump supporters tried to remain civil and ignore the distractors but that became impossible when they were assaulted. Several people were seen being followed and beaten.
“I’ve heard that Sanders and Clinton supporters were extremist and bad for this country on Fox news but I never believed it until now. Why are they going around trying to suppress people’s right to free speech? Now more than ever, I believe conservatives have to unite,” continued Samantha.
After surviving the traumatic event, Samantha and fellow demonstrators decided to hire legal counsel and sue the Democratic candidates that vilified Trump. Their attorneys did not have to look long before finding incendiary remarks about Donald Trump and his supporters.
“For the past year Hillary and Bernie have used dangerous rhetoric that directly led to this event. They repeatedly reference a near apocalypse if Trump is elected. The scenarios range from economic depression, suppression of civil rights, and even nuclear war,” said attorney Harry Smith. “All of this is based on his “extreme” views that most Americans support. We have to set an example that you can’t use fear to undermine a candidate that is winning at the polls.”
Bernie and Hillary have both said the claims are unbased and are not worried. Leaked information from people close to their campaign provide a different view.
“Both candidates are creating a contingency plan if this makes it to trial. They are preparing statements shifting more responsibility to each other,” said an unidentified staffer who wasn’t authorized to comment.
