The man in question was apparently wearing a Donald Trump-branded “Make America Great Again” hat and shirt when he got into an argument with a man around 8:15 p.m. Friday while on board a northbound No. 4 train that was approaching the Union Square-14th Street station, ABC 7 New York reports. 

During the verbal dispute, police say, the suspect made several derogatory comments about the Hispanic man’s ethnicity. The 24-year-old victim got off the train at 14th Street, but Mr. MAGA followed the victim, escalating the attack and allegedly punching him in the head multiple times on the train platform. The suspect then pushed the victim onto the tracks before running away, police said.

And, bruh, I just have one question: What are you doing?

Do you think this man realizes what “MAGA” represents? Do you think he knows that some of the other people who don this gear would attack him in the same manner? Is this some kind of a joke?

OK, that was more than one question.

The victim was thankfully helped back onto the platform by his friend and another person and was treated at an area hospital for a laceration to his head, which he suffered during his fall to the tracks.

You know how sometimes white people will wear blackface and then rob a bank or something? Maybe this dude was trying to do it in reverse by putting on MAGA hat?
