We watched the original video of the young white Kentucky boys decked out in Make America Great Again gear mocking an old Native American man and, to say the least, we were disappointed.
The teens were in the nation’s capital for the March for Life. The Native American man, 64-year-old Nathan Phillips, was on the mall for the Indigenous Peoples March. The footage of their encounter, shot Friday, seemed to support the false narrative that President Donald Trump is a racist and by default anyone who supports him is a racist. The young Trump supporters were accused of being culturally insensitive at best and down right dirty racists at worst.
Less than 24 hours later, a host of live videos of the full incident emerged and made it clear that the grown-ups were the childish instigators and the teenagers were actually just being teenagers.
