A Donald Trump supporter, posting on Twitter under the name Nesto Moro Jr., posted a video this week that alleges to show the employees of a restaurant ousting Trump supporters.
It’s unclear if the supporters were trying to stage a protest at the Fiesta Cantina restaurant in California. In another video, one supporter is seen yelling through a megaphone.
Moto Jr. tagged several media outlets in his videos where he claimed that “Trump supporters assaulted & refused service by hosts & security.”
Also at the event was the manager for alt-right icon Milo Yiannopoulos who claimed that he was assaulted by staff and patrons at the restaurant.
Those at the event then began circulating photos of a woman who they say assaulted them. They began tagging DC based political reporters such as the Washington Post’s Dave Weigel in an effort to drum up support.
Why do you think tweeting at DC journalists will get police in LA to file charges over a local crime https://t.co/ZIZjn5L3zH
