An 82-year-old Trump supporter who was allegedly assaulted for holding a sign supporting President Donald Trump got a surprise call from the president’s son Friday during the Howie Carr Show on WBSM.
Charlie Chase was holding a Trump sign Tuesday in Fall River, Massachusetts when 27-year-old Aidan Courtright allegedly stopped his car, got out and walked toward Chase while screaming “Give me the (expletive) sign!” Providence Journal reported. Police said he then took the sign, ripped it in half and threw it down before assaulting Chase.
The suspect then grabbed Chase by his shirt, knocked off his hat and threw him down to the ground, according to Providence Journal. The suspect then kicked the victim in the ribs and legs before he drove away.
Courtright was reportedly arrested Thursday and charged with assault and battery on person over 60, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, civil-rights violation with injury and vandalism of personal property.
The president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., heard about the incident and tweeted out a request for Chase’s contact information Friday, to which radio host Howie Carr responded that Chase was coming on his show at 4:30 p.m.
@DonaldJTrumpJr He’s going to be on my show today at 4:30pm on @newsmax. DM me and I can share contact info!
Chase, a retired teacher, was overcome with emotion after hearing Trump Jr. pop up on the call.
