It was a case of good news and more good news for the kid who was a victim of an adult bully who stole his hat and assaulted him at a Texas Whataburger this week. First, he learned the punishment of the thug who attacked him, and then he got news of a special surprise from President Donald Trump.
Kino Jimenez, the 30-year-old big baby who attacked 16-year-old Hunter Richard when he spotted the teen wearing a red Make American Great Again hat, was arrested by San Antonio police at his Universal City home on Thursday. He has been charged with felony theft of a person and bail has been set at $5,000, Fox News reported.
“Kino Jimenez was located in Universal City, Texas,” the San Antonio police wrote in a statement. “Universal City police officers took Mr. Jimenez into custody without incident.” And the bad news for the thug did not end there.
When the owners of the bar that Jimenez worked at part-time found out what happened, they immediately fired him. The statement from the bar did not mention Jimenez by name but said that “we do not condone the actions or behavior that were displayed in the cell phone video, and we never will.”
“It came to our attention earlier this evening that a part-time employee was captured on cell phone video assaulting another person at a local eatery. The assault took place, presumably, because this employee did not agree with the other individual’s political stance,” it read.
“We have since terminated this employee, as his actions go against everything that this establishment stands for. Rumble has, and always will be, a bar that is as inclusive as any establishment could possibly be. THIS BAR IS A SAFE SPACE FOR EVERYONE! No matter your race, creed, ethnicity, sexual identity, and political stance, you are welcomed here! We do not condone the actions or behavior that were displayed in the cell phone video, and we never will. If you have any questions or concerns please message us privately. We support and appreciate your business,” it read.
Jimenez got more bad news when The Green Party, the party with which he was affiliated, denounced him and kicked him out.
“We all have different opinions of our president, but we don’t take it out on innocent kids who just happen to have a hat on,” Gavino Zarate, secretary of the Harris County Green Party, told Heavy.com in an exclusive interview. “You may not like the hat or you may not like the president, but you don’t show that kind of aggression toward teenagers. It goes against everything the Green Party stands for. We are not violent. We do not take our aggression out on innocent young people.”
“The man’s full name is Kino Ahuitzotl Jimenez,” Zarate said, adding that he was speaking for the Green Party in the entire state of Texas. “We are handling it in house. From our point of view, he is banned from being part of our organization.”
But there was fantastic news for Richard, who has shown maturity and class since the incident. The president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., announced that he was going to get him a Make America Great Again hat signed by President Trump.
“If someone can get me this young man’s information I’ll get him a new #maga hat… SIGNED by #potus!!!” he wrote.

Hunter Richard has asked to speak to Kino Jimenez and said that everyone is entitled to their own opinions. “He has a right to his opinion,” Richard told My San Antonio. “I’m down for other opinions, and I’m open to conversations. Let’s talk through this and come to some sort of agreement or neutral ground. Let’s have a conversation if you care so deeply.”
It is a shame that the entire incident happened, but when you have Congress members like Rep. Maxine Waters calling for these types of confrontations, you should not be surprised when they happen. There is a part of liberal America that is at war with conservatives and supporters of the president, and we need to recognize and confront it.
