No single political party has a monopoly on crazy but certain “tells” are often there with some individuals.
Certain bumper stickers can also serve as an alert to keep a safe distance away because of valid concerns about stability.
Now a driver with an apparent anti-Trump bumper sticker just slammed into this Trump store.
A Massachusetts man who plowed his car into a Trump merchandise store on Thursday blamed the “voices” in his head for doing it, according to a store employee.
According to authorities, 46-year-old Sean Flaherty allegedly crashed his car through Keith Lambert’s store in South Easton, Massachusetts where a single employee was working at the time.
Keith Lambert, the store’s owner, told a local news station, “Just before the crash there was a little boy with his mother shopping right in that spot. The clerk was about to go to the bathroom and he would’ve gotten hit. Thank God nobody got hurt, that’s all I can say.”
Karla Kelley, an employee of New England For Trump says that no altercation or provocation happened to make the man drive “off of the street and into the building” in his Volkswagen Jetta.
Kelley says that after the crash the only thing the man had to say was, “the voices in his head told him to do it.”
According to Kelley there was an “anti-Trump sticker on his car” and that the store was open the next day after the car tore through the store.
Alleged photos of the vehicle show at least one anti-Trump bumper sticker on it that features a picture of Trump, and reads, “Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.”
Kelley said that she hopes charges are pressed against the driver and says, “There’s a chance the store could be targeted again. There’s a chance of a lot of things happening. So I’m not concerned. I’m not worried. Take it as it comes.”

The driver eventually did get charged with reckless operation of a motor vehicle and malicious destruction of property, the Easton Police Department said in a release.
After ramming his car through the storefront, Flaherty is expected to be okay, according to local reports.
The crash sent shirts, hats, and other merchandise airborne, with security footage showing the wreck.
