Thirty students from Pennsylvania's Union City High School reportedly visited Howard University, a Historically Black College, as part of their tour of Washington D.C last Saturday. Their visit to the cafeteria sparked controversy thanks to two white High School Students who "trolled" the Howard students with their "Make America Great Again" (MAGA) paraphernalia. The two Union City students, Allie Vandee and her friend, Sarah, were apparently wearing MAGA hats and shirts to show their support for President Trump.

Trump supporters troll black university

Needless to say, it didn't go well. Their visit to Howard University took place approximately a week after the violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, where 32-year-old counter-protester Heather Heyer was killed by a white supremacist, who plowed his car into a group of counter-protesters, injuring 19 others.

The consensus view was that those hate groups at the rally were Trump supporters, which even the members of those hate groups have publicly admitted to, resulting in the national expectation that President Trump would -- at the very least -- be forced to make a statement that would denounce those hate groups.

While he eventually would, he instead, chose to defend those hate groups in a series of highly controversial statements. In a phone interview with BuzzFeed -- during which she was coached -- Allie said that when they entered the cafeteria, a black student took the MAGA hats off of her and her friend Sarah's head while another Howard University student said "F*** ya'll." When BuzzFeed asked Allie about the incidents in Charlottesville to provide some context for the incident; Vandee repeated one of the most controversial parts of Trump's trilogy of statements, accusing the media of wanting Trump to immediately condemn those hate groups, but that in her "opinion," both sides were guilty.

Vandee is 16.

Since taking office, Trump has "declared war" on the media, calling those who report negative stories about him that he doesn't like, "fake news," and even going as far as to declare them the "enemy of the American people." But in his recent statements about Charlottesville, he attempted to establish false equivalency by saying that the Nazi sympathizers and the counter-protesters were both violent forces, even blaming the opposition against the racist hate groups -- calling them the "alt-left" and saying that they were "just as violent."

MAGA students' hostility against self-inflicted criticism

Right after leaving the university, Allie tweeted about the incident but she also told BuzzFeed in their phone interview that "a man, a black man, had walked through and took my friend Sarah’s hat right off her head." Vandee didn't leave any room to consider in her initial statement why students at a black university might have been offended. Later in the interview, she seemed to "reason" as to why but she settled with accusing the Howard University students of making her and her friend feel "completely harassed."

Allie being coached during the interview is important because going to a Historically Black College and University (HBCU)-designated school was not part of her high school's itinerary for their tour.

According to the report, no one is sure as to why the students decided to stop there without doing their research. BuzzFeed questioned the timeline of their visit in this case.

What's clear is that at this point after Charlottesville, someone might have thought it would be a "good" idea to test out the field of culture wars by entering the school. Given that Allie was coached about the details, where BuzzFeed said that she seemed to be hesitant and repeating what she was being told off the phone, it's just more trolling on behalf of the "troller in chief" in the Oval Office.
