  • “If you’re wearing a MAGA hat…and some guy with a slightly punk demeanor comes up to you and says, ‘Hey are you…pro-Trump?’ Choke him.”
  • “You can’t call for violence on a specific person, but can you say, they’re throwing bricks, we should throw bricks. Can you call for violence generally? Cause I am.”
