Trump supporter loses sign, finds letter calling him ‘dimwitted’

A Walpole resident has now had three Donald Trump campaign signs taken from his yard, and he told police that the thief in the most recent incident left behind a letter insulting his intelligence.

A resident of Bullard Street came to the Walpole Police Department on Wednesday to report that his sign had been taken again. This time, the resident — who has not been identified — decided to affix the sign to a tree as a deterrent, according to Deputy Chief Chris Mackenzie.

The culprit was able to make off with the Republican presidential nominee’s placard anyway, police said. And whoever took the sign had some choice words for Trump supporters, according to Mackenzie.


In a copy of the letter provided to the Boston Globe by the Walpole Republican Town Committee, the thief called Trump supporters the “most dimwitted, low level simpletons that any well-developed nation has to offer.”

Victor Scena, the chairman of the committee, called the author of the letter “a sick individual.” He added that the committee has erected 15 signs in Walpole that have been stolen.

The author of the letter wrote to the Bullard Street resident: “I have once again taken your sign, and will do so again if you decide to place it anywhere on your front lawn.”
