IMAGE: Trump Supporter Gets Fired Promptly After Posting Threat To Run Over Protesters

An Arizona man decided to troll an anti-Trump group on Facebook to make threats toward people planning to protest Donald Trump’s rally in Phoenix but instead, he’s found himself unemployed after a backlash ensued.

James Cobo trolled the “Protest Trump Downtown Phoenix” Facebook event page with a threat reminiscent of what happened to Heather Heyer, 32, when she was murdered by a Trump supporter in Charlottesville, Virginia, after he decided to use his car as a weapon to mow down a crowd of protesters.

“You are all pathetic,” Cobo wrote, according to AZCentral. “Cant [SIC] wait to drive through. 4×4 with push bumper will be sweet in this crowd. I named my lifted truck ‘trumper.’ “

Facebook users contacted West Valley Tires where Cobo was employed.

West Valley Tires addressed the situation on its Facebook page saying that Cobo has been fired.

West Valley Tires Point S wants to publicly state we do not condone or support violence or prejudice in anyway shape or form. We were recently made aware of an employee that posted outrageous posts and videos that are in no way affiliated with the positive views, values and appreciation we have for people in our community and throughout the world. That person is no longer affiliated with West Valley Tires Point S.

Cobo is playing victim saying it was just a joke.

“I’m being made into a horrible person over a joke that was just meant to ruffle some feathers,” Cobo said.

“I admit it was a tasteless joke, but keyword here is it was a joke,” he claimed while having no idea what a joke is. “If anybody was ever going to go and intentionally hurt people, why would they talk about it on social media publicly before doing it?”

We’ll just leave this here:

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I never hurt anybody, nor did I have the intent to,” Cobo said. “I never said I was actually going to hit anybody with a vehicle,” he said. “They assumed it. Never would have thought it would be a big deal.”

“I still can’t figure out why I’m being called a racist. I’ve never even said anything racist,” said the man who posts in opposition to removing Confederate statues on Facebook.

“I was poking at them, trying to get a reaction like they do to the Trump supporters,” Cobo added. “Just hurt feelings like they do to everybody that doesn’t feel the same way they do about life.”

That’s funny because I remember Trump supporters saying, “F*ck your feelings” during the campaign.

From his Facebook page, Cobo appears to have at least one child and a girlfriend or wife. Good luck paying your bills without a job, Mr. Cobo.

Please to give West Valley Tires a good review for acting quickly.
