A Donald Trump supporter grabbed his crotch before calling a boy said to be 16 ‘pimply’ in a fight over face masks.
The video, initially posted to Reddit on Sunday, shows a man shouting profanities in the middle of a store in Scottsdale, Arizona.
‘Go vote for Biden and suck right here,’ the man says, while aggressively grabbing his crotch as he walked out the door.
The person filming had previously asked in the video, ‘You’re gonna get arrested for this?’

‘Arrested for what,’ the Trump supporter replied. ‘Just like a pimple on the left. Somebody says something and you don’t like it. Is that what it is?’
The video starts with the man coming close to the camera, while the person filming says, ‘Why you coming up to me?’
‘Fuck you where you breathe,’ the man says. ‘Don’t tell me what the fuck to do, how’s that pal? Use your fucking head if you know how, you little pimply little shit.’
A store worker intervenes and says, ‘If you don’t stop yelling you can get out of the store.’
The man goes to leave, but right before he exits, he makes sure to fiddle around with his crotch before he goes on about his day.
‘Have a good day sir,’ the man filming says. ‘He can vote for whoever he wants to as far as I’m concerned. Jesus Christ.’
The user on Reddit posted his perspective of the incident, saying that he was with his little brother when the crotch-grabber came up to them and said, ‘why are you even wearing your masks, you fucking liberals.’
The man filming said he replied back to him, ‘Because Covid is a real disease.’
‘Then he gets his chest puffed up and walks toward me saying a variety of common anti-Covid talking points,’ the Reddit post said.
The Reddit user also alleged that he could smell alcohol on the man’s breath, and said he turned the footage over to police.
The Lincoln Project, a prominent anti-Trump political group, shared the video on Twitter.
