The drunk man who interrupted a performance of Fiddler on the Roof in Baltimore by yelling “Heil Hitler, Heil Trump” hates the President, despite the fake news media describing him as a “Trump supporter.”
The 58-year-old man was escorted out of the theater after a scene near the end of intermission in which he felt obligated to shout “Heil Hitler, Heil Trump,” while gesturing in a Nazi salute.
Patrons in the seats heard the shouting from the balcony and were reminded of the anti-Semitic attack in Pittsburgh.
“People started running,” one witness recalled. “I’ll be honest, I was waiting to hear a gunshot. I thought, ‘Here we go.'”

The Fake News media called him a Trump supporter
By simply saying a random man shouted “Heil Hitler, Heil Trump,” many outlets tried to imply that the man must have been pro-Trump.
Should they fail to actually read the column, one might come to an extremely erroneous conclusion. Just as this man did …
Hey, remember when guys were shouting “Heil Nixon” and “Heil Reagan?
Me neither. I wonder what’s different now. https://t.co/ABL5KYbBWl

Or MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, who alleged that the incident shows “racists and bigots very clearly think the president is on their side.”
This is where we are in the era of Trump. He fans hatred daily. We must all be vigilant to be the voice of light right now.

Mediate didn’t even bother to imply. They flat out called the man a Trump supporter in their headline:

What really happened
Turns out the man didn’t yell the Nazi phrase as some sort of anti-Semitic, KKK supportive gesture for the President.
Police reported that the man smelled of alcohol, and he explained to officers that he “had been drinking heavily throughout the night.”
And the much, much more important part: he is a Trump hater.
The idiot shouted “Heil Hitler! Heil Trump!” because “of his hatred for President Trump”.
He was not a Trump supporter.

The report filed by police indicates that the final scene prior to intermission reminded the man of his hatred for the President. As such, he shouted Nazi statements in an ironic manner, we suppose.
One officer concluded, “that his intention was to express his dislike for President Donald Trump.”
CNN’s Jake Tapper was kind enough to post an update to his tweet the following day, after it had circulated for some time with the insinuation that the perpetrator was a Trump fan.
Important update from police (I RTed yesterday but just to make sure people see): the shouter told police “he yelled the slogans because the final scene before intermission reminded him of his hatred for President Trump.“ https://t.co/bV7z0VTish

The drunken liberal was issued a stop ticket which carries no fine or penalty, despite the opportunity for him to actually be charged with disorderly conduct.
A police spokesman said his words represented protected free speech “because nobody was directly threatened.”
