A Trump supporter and registered Florida Man was caught on surveillance video fishing a woman’s purse out of her diaper bag, then using his MAGA hat to conceal it as he walked away. The man, 79-year-old Donald Light Jr., was also wearing another red hat at the time, this one with the classic Trump slogan “Lock ‘er Up.” How many hats did this guy bring to one event?
According to the Clay County Sheriff’s Office, the theft happened at a St. Patrick’s Day party that took place inside a law office, which is probably why there was a security camera ready to video criminals. Local news reports that the victim of the theft didn’t even know Light.
“I had no knowledge who he was,” she said. “It wasn’t until after he was confronted by law enforcement with my belongings underneath the driver seat of his vehicle along with the surveillance that I became aware of this individual and who he was.”

It’s unclear why Light was even at the party, though it may have something to do with the fact that his wife runs a local political group called the Republican Women’s Club of Duval Federated. While seeking comment, News4Jax discovered that their own son didn’t even know his father had been arrested.
“First I’ve heard of it,” he said when questioned.
Light’s attorney is claiming that the 79-year-old is beginning to show signs of dementia and that’s why he stole the purse. Unfortunately, not even dementia can explain owning that many Trump hats. It also didn’t stop the police from charging him with grand theft.
Maybe he was just taking a page out of Trump’s book of entitlement? There are a few different theories as to why this Florida Man stole the purse.
Huh. Tax return must have been short?
