Despicable on so many levels, but I think emotional child abuse would be enough to put the woman into some sort of treatment.
A mom tossed her son from the house because he voted for Donald Trump in an elementary school mock election.
“Get your suitcase,” the unidentified Fresno, Texas mom says during the now-viral video. “Get your suitcase and get out. Bye.”
“We don’t do Donald Trump here,” she adds.
She made the child — who bawls as he is walked down the street — stand on a street corner with a sign that read: “My mom kicked me out the house because I voted for Donald Trump.”
“It’s crazy,” says one of the family’s neighbors. “People need to realize when you put certain things on social media, you never know how far it’s gonna go.”
Investigators say the case doesn’t add up to child abuse, and no charges have been filed, according to a report on Houston TV station KTRK.
“I have personally met with the family and saw the child, his well-being. He appears to be in good health,” says Detective Joe Luera of the Fort Bend County, Texas sheriff’s department.
The mother described the incident as “a joke,” Luera said.
