So this in from CBS Austin. Seriously, this is a real story. According to the local outlet, “A 7-year-old boy is facing backlash after some neighbors in his northwest Austin community took offense to a hot chocolate stand he started to raise money for President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall.”
Watch the report below:
Wow. Just wow. (By the way, the boy has raised $1,400 in two days.)
Sorry, kid. This one is for you and your family:
And if you think we are being too harsh, talk to the parents. They are the ones who agreed for their 7-year-old to be part of the public discourse now. That’s on them, not on us.
As for CBS Austin? Here you go:
hey guys, did you even bother to talk to anyone who finds this painfully offensive? nice job normalizing xenophobia with a 7-year-old kid, who based views on a propaganda speech. thanks for nothing.
