EL CAJON, Calif. — As if the El Cajon shooting protest weren't intense enough, more chaos erupted this week after a Donald Trump supporter arrived at the protest and was jumped.

The man was wearing a "Make America Great Again" cap when he was thrown to the ground, kicked and beaten by angry protestors — and it was all caught on camera.

"I'm being cussed at, assaulted. I'm being assaulted just for the hat I'm wearing," he said during the video.

So what did this incident show us?

"There are going to be a lot of folks who do stuff that we just don't agree with," President Obama said during his Wednesday night Town Hall discussion in Virginia. "But, as long as they're doing it within the law, then we can voice our opinion objecting to it but, it's also their right."
