‘F*CK TRUMP’ Truck Sticker Triggers Local Sheriff: ‘Offensive Display’

A Texas woman is protesting President Donald Trump by driving around a Dodge Ram truck with a large, profane rear-window decal — which reads, “Fuck Trump And Fuck You For Voting For Him” — and it’s gotten her in-trouble with the law.

After seeing complaints about the truck, the local sheriff in Fort Bend County took matters into his own hands and posted a photo of the truck on Facebook and asked viewers to identify the owners to remove it  — or else face a disorderly-conduct charge for driving it. “Prosecutor has informed us she would accept Disorderly Conduct charges regarding it, but I feel we could come to an agreement regarding a modification to it,” said Sheriff Troy Nehls.

 

Prior to the sheriff’s post, photos of the truck had already gone viral and sparked a discussion on free speech in the Texas community — some arguing that it was too vulgar and too disrespectful to the president. The driver of the truck sees it differently, as she believes displaying her free speech against Trump and his voters is actually a positive thing.

“I thought the whole thing was totally crazy. It’s been on there for such a long time and we have so much positive out of it — more positive that outweighs the negative,” said “Fuck Trump” truck owner Karen Fonseca.

Additionally, Fonseca called-out the sheriff for sub-tweeting her on Facebook rather than confronting her in person, saying, “Look, [the local news crew] found me. He could have done that at the same time, it is an invasion of privacy and everything else because he put me on blast on his Facebook Page,” explained Forsenca.
