Robert Gehl reports a homeless woman who was assaulted for trying to stop vandals from destroying Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is now the most sought woman in the country.
The video shows the woman being assaulted trying to protect the star and then lying on top of it as people surrounding her berate and ridicule her, asking “where’s Donald Trump now” and “smoke that crack pipe.”
The woman had a shopping cart with signs that read “20 Million Illegals and Americans sleep on the streets in tents. Vote Trump,” and others that were taken away and torn up by bystanders.
Earlier this week, James Lambert Otis was arrested by LA Police for taking a pickax to try and destroy the star.
The videotape shows the woman with several pro-Trump signs and signs blasting President Obama for selling out African Americans. A heavy-set man then moved to tear up her signs, leading her to try to stop him and then being pushed to the ground, the LA Times is reporting.
As she lay prone, some onlookers jeered her with profanity.
“You spewed hate and you got hate,” one man is heard to say. “You got exactly what you were dishing out.”
Meanwhile, as the LA Police are looking for the woman, so is the Donald Trump campaign.
“Mr. Trump cares about not only finding her but he wants us to do something special for her,” Trump attorney Michael Cohen told The Daily Caller Saturday. “But he also wants to find those who stood around and mocked her and jeered at her and did nothing, while this woman sat on the floor protecting this star that was awarded to him by Hollywood.”
Cohen confirmed that the Trump wanted to find help for the woman “and possibly more.”

The Times further reported that the LAPD would write up a misdemeanor battery report on behalf of the woman based on the video and information they obtained from her at another confrontation in Hollywood on Wednesday.
LAPD Officer Tony Im said, “We had a lot of people upset that we didn’t do anything.” He added, “If she’s a victim, she has a right to come forward.” Police took down her name and address and would visit her to further investigate the incident.
