IOWA CITY – A man wasn’t very nice to Donald Trump this week, allegedly hurling tomatoes at him at a campaign stop in Iowa City.

Andrew Joseph Alemao, age 28, attended the Donald Trump presidential rally Tuesday night on the campus of the University of Iowa. Allegedly, as he sported a t-shirt that said “Heil Trumpler” Alemao hurled at least two tomatoes at powerful billionaire and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. His plump red veggies missed the outspoken pol, but the Secret Service demanded that he be arrested anyway. Alemao was taken into custody by University police and charged with disorderly conduct – fighting or violent behavior.

Alemao – who has several drug arrests on his resume – was soon released. He has entered a not guilty plea and awaits a jury trial in March.

    What do you expect from and illegal alien that Trumps going to deport with the other 19 members of his birthright family. Sounds like a normal reaction to me.

    People are wising up to Donald and friends. They are America’s Oligarchs…the super rich and powerful…the 1% everyone has been talking about. If you believe in large barons owning everything with peasants working for them, Trump is your guy. Hey some do. Not everyone believes in themselves as their own captains. A lot of people are comfortable with the format of rich, greedy oligarchs telling them what to do.

      I’m not a fan of The Donald, but at least he isn’t begging for money from the rest of the 1% to finance his campaign like Hillary and the rest of the crowd is doing. He won’t have those rich oligarchs telling him what to do.

    A waste of good tomatoes. Eggs are less than a buck a dozen and would have been a better choice.
