Man Who Slashed Baby Trump Balloon Says Somebody Needed To Take A Stand

Hoyt Deau Hutchinson was arrested after he slashed a 20-foot-tall Baby Trump balloon at the Alabama-LSU football game.

Tuscaloosa, AL – An Alabama man charged with slashing a Baby Trump balloon that was in town to mock President Donald Trump’s attendance at a college football game on Saturday said he deflated the offensive item to make a point.

“It comes a point when you gotta take a stand,” Hoyt Deau Hutchinson told the hosts of the Rick & Bubba Show on Monday morning.

“We don’t have two parties anymore," he said. "We have good vs. evil. 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.”

The 32-year-old Hutchinson said he was driving by when saw the giant derogatory inflatable balloon floating nearby the University of Alabama’s football stadium, the Birmingham News reported.

“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,” Hutchinson explained. “I figured 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].”

“I was so fired up. I was shaking I was so mad,” he said, according to the Birmingham News.

He explained his motivations to the show hosts.

“I’m not young but I’m not old,” Hutchinson said. “I’m sort of middle aged. I feel like a lot of people my age don’t keep up with the news and politics the way they should. I watch the news every night. I watch Fox News every night. Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity are my favorite two anchors.

"I see this stuff going on out west and up north and all other places,” he continued. “I get so mad about people not taking a stand. The left wants to use religion against you like you shouldn’t act like this and stuff but I’ll tell you this - the Devil knows the Bible as good as we do.”

Hutchinson said that he used a material cutter with a sharp razor when he slashed the balloon, which was 20 feet tall.

A cell phone video of his arrest that was posted to social media by a bystander showed that Hutchinson yelled “Trump 2020” a couple of times as he was being put into the back of a police vehicle.

Hutchinson was charged with felony first-degree criminal mischief.

He was released on a $2,500 bond, according to the Birmingham News.

A GoFundMe set up to help with Hutchinson's legal fees had raised more than $47,000.

His justifications are weak. I hope the man gets the help he needs.

Inability to control emotions - unable to accept differing perspective - believes attention seeking and “making a point” are the same thing. Word to the wise, my chubby friend; that’s not activism......that’s your menstrual cycle. Don’t imitate the opposition. Rise above it. Your intentions are good - match your behaviour with that.

I don’t think he needs help but there’s a whole ton of people in the House of Representatives who need medication and counseling. Just look at the crazy eyes on AIC, Pelosi, and Schiff. And lots more of them.

he probably should nit have done it but I’d be lying if I said I’m not amused that he did.

If it were a balloon of Obama in a diaper and a liberal slashed it, nothing would have happened. Snowflake libbies would have held protests all over the country and the charges would have been dropped. The fake outrage from the liberals is so hypocritical of them!

The First Amendment truly is a wonderful thing. We should not resort to their level (criminal destruction of property) simply because we disagree with them. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, as stupid as it may be. Very brave people gave their lives to be able to protect this...

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

The Trump balloon reflects more poorly upon the childish nincompoops that fly it, than upon President Trump. I mean, really, Trump in a diaper? Only idiots could possibly think that is funny or witty.

When the Left disagrees with policy, they employ Antifa goons to split skulls with bike locks or attack innocent bystanders with milkshakes laced with cement containing caustic lime while beating them about the head and shoulders. They throw rocks and swing hammers and clubs. Conservatives, on the other hand, attack inanimate objects. The Antifa goons operate in clear sight of Police that are instructed to not interfere, while the Conservative gets cuffed, stuffed and catches a felony. And they wonder why we're pissed off?
Two wrongs never equal a right, but evidently, three lefts do.

Wtf. It’s okay to kill babies but slashing a balloon is felony first degree mischief?

That balloon is disrespectful anyway towards the President. Hope the charges are dropped or at least reduced. Glad he is getting alot of support through Go Fund Me....

Apparently he got TRIGGERED, which was his justification for vandalism. And people say only the left have their share of immature idiots who think the rules don't apply to them because they get TRIGGERED.

This person is an embarrassment; hopefully the judge dismisses the charges, as has happened all to often when leftist vandalize things they don't agree with.

You can see right in the photograph that the fat man is resisting. The popo's (who are also fat) don't care. They like the man. This does not apply when police are out for blood or trumped up charges.
