Several TikToks show a mother with a 3-year-old child in her car getting into an altercation with a supporter of former President Donald Trump, who tailgated her because she had a President Joe Biden sticker on her car.
TikTok user @.allie.phillips uploaded the six videos to her account. They were later compiled on Reddit’s r/PublicFreakout page (the video has since been archived), detailing her wild interaction with the troubled Trump supporter.
The video starts with the OP asking the Trump supporter what his problem is, since he was tailgating her. She tells him he needs to go back to retake his driver’s test and that he doesn’t “know the rules of the road.”
She further explains that her child is in the backseat, but he says that he doesn’t care. She then asks him his name, which he declines to give while asking why she needs it.
“Because you almost caused an accident with my child,” she says.
“Do you have a warrant for my name?” he asks. “Then drive off.”
“I will gladly call the police and let them know how you’re driving,” she retorts.
“So? They can’t do nothing about it,” he quips. He tells her they have no proof of wrongdoing because she did not record his vehicular harassment.
“You’re an asshole,” she says, eliciting a grin from the Trump supporter. “So that makes you happy?”
“No, it makes me happy that you’re upset,” he replies.
“Are you a Republican?” she asks, which he confirms with another smug grin. “That makes sense. Fucking Trump supporter, aren’t you?”
“I am,” he says, gleefully brandishing his MAGA hat.
“That says so much about you as a person,” she says. “That’s disgusting. Is that why you were on my ass, because I have Biden on my back?”
“So you rode my ass because of who I voted for?” she asks.
After the Trump supporter says he will continue driving however he wants, the woman filming him becomes emotional about her daughter’s safety.
“You would’ve hit me, which would’ve caused damage to her,” she says through tears. “You need to think about that when you ride people’s asses.”
“OK,” the Trump supporter responds.
The conversation devolves into an argument about the LGBTQ community, with the Trump supporter saying that “homos” are not born that way and that he disagrees with their lifestyle.
“So what? What do we do from here?” the Trump supporter asks near the end of the video.
“I would like an apology,” the woman responds.
He refuses to apologize to her but finally apologizes to her child.
“She’s innocent. I get that. understand where you’re coming from with the baby,” he says.
“What did I do to earn that (harassment)?” the woman asks.
“You put a freakin’ crook in the office,” the Trump supporter responds.
Viewers on TikTok eviscerated the Trump supporter in the comments.
“Not very pro life of him,” a top comment on the first video reads.
“Trump supporters with ‘back the blue’ in their bio saying ‘my respect for this guy’ after he broke the law,” another viewer commented. “They simply do not think.”
