Students Learn the HARD WAY After Hurling Object at Trump’s Motorcade
Kids do stupid things, and that’s ok, when it’s simply “kid’s play.” However, throwing things at the president doesn’t qualify as “kid’s play.”
The incident occurred on Friday. President Trump traveled by motorcade from the airport to his Mar-A-Lago home.
CBS12 reported that while the motorcade was driving down Southern Boulevard, one of the vehicles was hit by a “small, hard” object.
Police later identified the object as a 2“ by 4” inch wood block, and addressed the situation on its Facebook page:
The post, in part, read:
“The investigation determined that a juvenile from a local middle school confessed to throwing the 2 x 4 (see attached) at the motorcade. The juvenile also implicated four additional students that were involved for a total of five.”
The five local middle school kids now face charges that will be filed with the Palm Beach County States Attorney’s Office.
And you can bet they didn’t learn to “hate Trump” by happenstance. As the saying goes, “The apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree.”
According to the report, there was a protester group near where the children had been. However there is no evidence the kids were with that group. Nevertheless, the incidents are anecdotally related.
Needless to say, nobody was hurt, except a small part of America.

No one ever would have thought to throw anything at his car (or him) … It is a sad testimony to our country that in 50 years, our attitudes and behaviors have changed so much. It is shameful behavior…and I am ashamed that it happened in my hometown.”
You can bet that some
