BOSTON, MA - The man on Time's latest cover is known for his brash statements, as the "Deal with it" headline suggests. Donald Trump has strong opinions on many topics, including illegal immigrants, but some of his supporters are taking his rhetoric too far.

Brothers Scott and Steve Leader are accused of attacking a homeless man after they found him sleeping under a bus stop. They allegedly urinated on the Hispanic victim and nearly beat him to death.

"Troopers were able to speak to the victim at Boston Medical Center and were given a full account of the attack," asst. district attorney Andrew Kettlewell told a judge on Wednesday.

When troopers caught the men, big brother Scott allegedly told them, "Donald Trump was right, all these illegals need to be deported."

When asked about the crime at an event later that day, Trump responded saying, "The people that are following me are very passionate. They love this country, they want this country to be great again and they're very passionate, I will say that."

In court on Wednesday, the suspects pleaded not guilty to assault, indecent exposure and other charges. But court records show Scott Leader already spent a year in prison for a hate crime.

Their last name may be Leader, but it's clear these Boston brothers are just losers.
