Hoyt Deau Hutchinson, the man who was charged with slashing liberals’ anti-Trump balloon at a Tuscaloosa protest last weekend, went on the “Rick & Bubba Show” Monday to defend his actions.
“I got so fired up when I rolled by the balloon and I rolled down the window and I said something to them and I figured they saw me,” explained 32-year-old Hutchinson, according to AL.com. “I figured the only way I was going to get close enough to that balloon was to blend in. (I) went and bought me an Alabama shirt and walked up like I was walking to the game and like I was going to take a picture with (the Trump balloon).”
Anti-Trumpers used the balloon at a gathering on Saturday to protest the president’s presence at the Alabama/LSU game.
“When you got one party that says it’s OK to kill babies and by the way, this is the first time I’m ever seen a liberal get mad about chopping up a baby,” Hutchinson added, referring to Democrats’ push for abortion-on-demand until the moment of birth.
