Mercedes Owner Says Car Was Vandalized Because Of Anti-Trump Bumper Sticker

A Florida Woman told police that her Mercedes-Benz was vandalized in a Walmart parking lot due to an anti-Donald Trump bumper sticker, according to an incident report.

Kimberly Underwood-Solarte, 59, reported that she discovered an “8-inch deep scratch on the rear of the vehicle that was not there before” when she returned to the car Sunday after spending about an hour inside a Walmart near her Sarasota residence.

“The victim believes this was due to having a ‘I hate TRUMP’ sticker on her vehicle,” a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office deputy reported. The report notes that the “estimated repair cost is unknown and thought to be under $1000.”

The bumper magnet on the Mercedes did not read “I hate Trump,” said Underwood-Solarte, who told TSG that she has dozens of 3” x 11” political stickers that she rotates on her vehicle. Underwood-Solarte’s collection includes stickers declaring “There’s a psychopath in the White House,” “Blue Wave,” and “There’s a dangerous thin-skinned narcissist in the White House.”

Cops, who have classified the auto vandalism as an incident of criminal mischief, a misdemeanor, noted that it is “unknown if Walmart has footage of this incident.”
