Someone painted an obscene message on the side of the Donald Trump campaign’s office at 18th and Clarkson streets in Denver. Read on for the full view of the vandalism and the response from Trump’s campaign.
The message in full, which appeared sometime late on Nov. 3 or early on Nov. 4:
Denver police told the Denver Post they’re investigating and will look for surveillance footage.
Jeffrey Eggemeyer, co-chair of Trump’s Denver campaign, told Denverite that someone who saw the story on the news already has volunteered to power-wash the building. The paint is believed to be latex based.
“We need to respect law and order,” said Stephen Barlock, also a campaign co-chair. The left “is obsessed” with defaming Trump, and not with the important issues, he said.
(It’s worth noting that no suspects have been identified, so the political leanings of the perpetrators are unknown.)
“This is the most extensive the graffiti has been,” Barlock added. The campaign plans to vacate the office on the day of the election in order to minimize potential damage.
Liberals, he alleged, “are asking, ‘What can we use millennial anger for?'”
