    In October 2015, then-18-year-old Lauren Batchelder asked Trump a question at a political forum in New Hampshire. “So, maybe I’m wrong, maybe you can prove me wrong, but I don’t think you’re a friend to women,” she said. Trump defended himself, and Batchelder took the mic again, asking if she’d get equal pay and access to abortion with Trump as president. Trump answered: “You’re going to make the same if you do as good of a job, and I happen to be pro-life, okay?”

    Batchelder thought that was the end of it, but when she woke up the next day, she realized that the current president-elect had sent out a series of tweets about her. “The arrogant young woman who questioned me in such a nasty fashion at No Labels yesterday was a Jeb staffer!” he tweeted. (Batchelder is not, and has never been, a staffer for Jeb Bush, though she did volunteer for his campaign.) His followers replied with screenshots of Batchelder and posted her phone number and other personal information online.


    Within hours, her phone began to ring, and her email inbox and Facebook account filled with threatening messages. “I didn’t really know what anyone was going to do,” Batchelder, now 19, told the Washington Post. “He was only going to tweet about it and that was it, but I didn’t really know what his supporters were going to do, and that to me was the scariest part.”

    She said the abuse has continued, prompting one Trump supporter to send her a Facebook message five days before the election that read, “Wishing I could f—ing punch you in the face. id then proceed to stomp your head on the curb and urinate in your bloodied mouth and i know where you live, so watch your f—ing back punk.”

    The snowflake was old enough to vote. There are consequences for actions...she learned a very valuable life lesson. She should thank Trump and be pissed at her parents for not making sure she was equiped to deal with the real world.

    What's to change? seriously? use caller ID and ending facebook should not be a life altering event. Life is bigger than facebook. anyone think facebook is bigger than life has a serious problem.

    In fact, the OP made no assessment of Trump or his unhinged supporters. The OP simply cited the material article.

    I...stated that his supporters are unhinged. That is my observation of THEIR actions in defense of Trump.
    No. what the OP suggested was that the actions of those people were the fault of Trump.
    So using that logic, anyone that comes unhinged here is the fault of Labrea, not the people that actually might.
    It's a whole new perspective of accountability. No longer are people responsible for their own actions, it is the fault of the people who drive those actions.
    People that blame Trump probably blames the people who get raped instead of the rapist. Same mentality.

    No, he stirred up his sturmabteilung.

    Trump is sowing the wind with his little 3am tweet fests.

    Do you think the threat of violence might put a damper on free speech?

    As usual, you're way off base.

    How so? if she has no access to social media she can't be harassed by those on social media.

    In other words, she should shut up, and sit down if she doesn't want to be threatened with bodily harm. How perfectly American!
