Trump Fan Busted Bringing Backpack Of Weapons Into Trump Tower, Says He’s Done It Many Times Before

The New York Daily News reports:

Cops busted a 19-year-old college student at Trump Tower after the Secret Service found a hunting knife and a powerful firework in his backpack, police source said Tuesday. Alexander Wang, who studies finance at Baruch College, told police he’s a big Donald Trump supporter who just likes to study for school at the billionaire President-elect’s home base.

Wang showed up at Trump Tower about 6:35 p.m. Monday and tried to get in at a checkpoint. When his bag set off the metal detector, the Secret Service moved in and asked him to open it.

Inside they found the hunting knife, an M-100 firework, a Swiss Army knife, a flashlight, handcuffs, an 8-foot black rope, a clear water gun, a laptop and a wire typically used to strangle someone called a garrote.

He told investigators he’d never had a problem carrying his bag — weapons and explosives included — into the Midtown skyscraper the 10 or so prior times he visited, including two days after Trump won the presidency, sources said. He called himself a survivalist who is into martial arts and likes to shoot off fireworks on a pier along the East River.

The Secret Service began protecting Trump Tower after he won the GOP nomination.

    Sounds more like a kidnap pack than a book pack. But Im down with it.

    • Jerry

      All that was missing (maybe, wasn’t mentioned) was the duct tape.

      • Bryan

        And the bottle of chloroform.

  • MaryOGrady

    In most industrialized democracies, a person of such poor judgment would have a very difficult time being admitted to higher education.

    • boatboy_srq

      Most induatrialized democracies expect that their secondary education systems are successful in preparing students for independent living. The US seems alone in expecting a BA/BS/BBA as prerequisite for that ability.

      • MaryOGrady

        I agree.

  • kareemachan

    I’m…. speechless.

    The stupidity is strong within the deplorables.

    • Todd20036

      You really surprised by the stupidity of Trumpanzees, given the stupidity of Trump?

      • Mark

        Ok – so which is it? Is Trump stupid and KW crazy?…or is Trump crazy and KW stupid? We really need to be clear about this… 🙂

        • Todd20036

          Also, the accuser is named: A. Wang.

          You really cannot make this stuff up

          • Mark

            yer killin me!! I wonder if he has a brother?? B A Wang.

          • Robincho

            A. Wang is a fake coverup name. Dude’s name at birth was Sum Ting Wong…

    • Mickey Bitsko

      But is he a deplorable or just some schmuck who wanted to use the Trump Tower’s public restroom?

  • Oikos

    I have no words to adequately describe my feelings so here is a picture of a bunny taking a bath. It makes just as much sense.

  • Ray Butlers

    Well, Trump has such a very good brain I can understand why he’d have a garotte so he could take it home with him…oh wait.

  • Oikos
    • Todd20036

      I’d feel more comfortable of a Trump presidency if in fact, he were a dressed up baboon.

      • Oikos

        Me too. Baboons have better cognitive abilities.

        • Jay George

          And they don’t have Twitter accounts.

  • Mark

    Quite obviously Baruch College failed to mandate any curricula for critical thinking….

  • Texndoc

    What a great movie plot: an innovative college student, a cretinous President elect, a garrote, and a huge fire-cracker up the arse.

    • AtticusP

      Gary Busey as the President-elect, and starring Whoopi Goldberg as the plucky college student.

      • The Return of Traxley

        Featuring Brad Garrett as the garrote.

        I’ll show myself out…

    Don’t you guys carry that with you all the time? I certainly do! Although, I substitute my iPad for the laptop. Saves weight.

    • fuzzybits

      And that side pocket for your bazooka.

      • Paula

        Yes, its collapsible. I don’t use the garrotte very often, though.

        • William

          They are great if you’re waiting in a long line.

        • boatboy_srq

          I’m surprised: it’s much quieter. Wait, what? Oh….

      • CharlestonDave

        Is that a bazooka in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me?

    • Rebecca Gardner

      I usually carry an M26C TASER, a Kubotan, and a TigerLady.

    • Acronym Jim

      It’s de rigueur for Friday nights at the Tulsa Eagle.

    • NancyP

      I carry a tiny 2.5″ multi-tool with a 1.5 ” cutting surface blade and an even smaller scissors – effective for cutting rotten pieces out of fruit and for trimming hangnails. Also, flat and Philips head screwdrivers (one small for each), needle-nose pliers. Also keep flashlight and headlamp in car, in daypack, in house.

  • Skokieguy [Larry]

    This is bad? I thought NRA + Trump = GUNS EVERYWHERE! Bars, Stadiums, Preschools, National Parks, Starbucks, Home Depot

    [Disclaimer: Trump properties, rallies, RNC conventions and NRA Headquarters excluded]

    • boatboy_srq

      Guns? Sure. Knives, garrottes, fireworks? Not so much.

      Welcome to the post-NRA 2nd Amendment world: you can use anything you like for self-defense, defense of property or defense of the Republic – as long as its a firearm.

      • ECarpenter

        It just says ‘bear arms’, doesn’t say ‘bear guns’.

  • AtticusP

    Of course he’s a Donald Trump supporter: he doesn’t even have the common sense of a battery chicken. That’s a prerequisite.

  • Moebym, Resistance Pilot

    Something is seriously wrong with this kid.

    I much prefer the fashion designer by the same name.

  • Jay George

    I hope the next guy learns to hide his stuff better.

  • HZ81

    Righties love the second amendment. What’s the issue?

    On edit: No gun? Only a plastic water gun? Pussy.

    • JoeNCA

      Strangely every Trump property is a gun-free zone. Why is that?

      • HZ81

        I’m sure someone just has to let him know so he’ll remove those restrictions. KellyAnne? KellyAnne, you around? Corey?

  • OhNo,Sweetie

    Im thinking this was done in order to sway public opinion on spending $1M a day to secure Trump Tower.

    • boatboy_srq

      Now now: only the Left uses “false flag” ops – John Bolton said so…

  • Martin

    Wow. A stupid Trump supporter. Fancy that!

    • Todd20036

      Redundant. No such thing as a smart Trump supporter.

      • Bluto

        I’d call Bill Gates a smart man. & an asshole.

  • Silver Badger

    But what about this poor man’s second amendment rights! Where is Oath Keepers when you need them! NRA are you listening?

  • Kruhn

    A garrote? Really? How can this be a weapon for self-defense? You have to be behind the opponent in order to use it.

    • Bj Lincoln

      I have one. It’s used it to cut clay. It had nice wood handles and a nice thin wire. I could cut someones head off easily.

      • Treant

        Soap cutters, too.

      • ECarpenter

        Great for cutting cheese and other stuff. Not a big deal.

      • Kruhn

        You still have to stand behind the opponent to use it though. As self defense, it’s pretty crappy. As a murder weapon though….

  • The Return of Traxley


    Crooked Hillary sent a trained assassin to murder Dear Leader!!!


    • Kelly Lape

      Der Pumpkin Fuehrer uber alles.

  • Beagle

    Sounds like one of those “Can you find 12 things wrong with this picture?” games.

  • MonochromeMouse

    This just sounds like a dumb kid doing dumb kid shit.

  • Dazzer

    So now they’re holding open auditions to join the Trump Cabinet?

  • Bluto

    Hillary plant.

    • ECarpenter

      Yes, Bluto! Hillary is a master of disguise! She is actually ALL of the seedy belligerent armed Trump supporters! She just moves very very fast, so it looks like there’s millions of them!

  • Xiao Ai

    Sounds like he’s exactly Trump’s type. And he gives Taiwanese a bad name. -_-

    From Alexander Wang’s Wikipedia entry…

    Sweatshop allegations

    On March 5, 2012 the New York Post reported a $50 million lawsuit against Wang for running a sweatshop in Chinatown, Manhattan. The article states that roughly 30 workers have complained about the labor conditions Wang provides.[18]

    One of the workers, Wenyu Lu claims that he was “hospitalized for several days after he passed out at his work station because he was forced to work 25 hours straight without a break”.[19] Lu claims that the 200 square foot office on Broadway is windowless and poorly ventilated and that workers have been forced to work 16 hours or more without overtime or breaks. The former worker’s lawyer, Ming Hai, claims that Lu was eventually fired on February 16 due to complaints about working conditions and applying for workers’ compensation.[18]

    According to Women’s Wear Daily the plaintiffs involved in the suit are asking for $50 million per charge, adding up to $450 million for the 9 charges in total.[20]

    On August 14, 2012 WWD reported ‘Alexander Wang Lawsuit Dismissed’ . According to WWD – “New York federal court Judge Harold Baer on Monday dismissed the suit brought against the company by two former employees”.

    “We are gratified that this matter has been dismissed, as the allegations were unfounded and completely false”, a spokesman for Wang told WWD.

    Lawyers for former Wang employees Flor Duarte and Wenyu Lu declined to comment. However, it was reported that both parties had agreed to a settlement with undisclosed terms [21]

    • Acronym Jim

      Different Alexander Wang. The dude with the kidnap kit is a 19 year-old college student. The dude with the sweat shop is a 32 year-old designer.

      • Xiao Ai

        Thanks for pointing that out. Guilty of Googling while intoxicated.

        I plead a fifth! 😀
