A former Marine has found a hobby to keep him occupied in retirement.
Brutally trolling New York liberals.
On a near daily basis, Dion Cini gets into a rowing boat in the Hudson River and paddles around Manhattan, flying a “Trump 2020” flag to antagonize people in an area that overwhelmingly voted for Hillary Clinton, CNN reported.
And his favorite part is the triggered response he gets from those who are not fans of the president in one of America’s biggest liberal cities.
“Sometimes you hear ‘I hope you get hit by a boat! I hope you drown!” he said. “From the top of their lungs as loud as they can,” he said.
“It can be from the edge of the river. It can be from cars driving by on the river. It can be from windows,” he continued. “I get it all the time and then I get it even on rooftop bars.”
“I’m an ultra-conservative,” Cini told CNN.
The CNN cameras on hand for the interview caught people yelling at Cini.
“F*** Trump!” yelled one person.
“Donald Trump is a piece of sh**!” shouted another.
Middle fingers, thumbs downs and there’s a lot of not so well wishes for my life he said.”
Cini recalled being told to leave Washington Square Park with his flag because it was “not conservative land” but he vowed that no one would stop him.
Why does he support President Donald Trump?
“I just think that Americans need sort of a wake-up call,” he said. “I call it tough love. (President) Trump is tough love.”
But have the angry New Yorkers given Cini any desire to change his tactics?
“Maybe I’ll get a bigger flag. A 20-foot flag,” he told CNN. “And a bigger boat.”
Because when a Marine trolls you, they do it in your face, not from behind a keyboard.
