Fruit phobia

Trump was giving testimony in the court for the lawsuits that were filed against him in US court in 2015 when he was accused of abusing the protestors. The lawsuits were filed by the protestors who claimed that his security choked and even beat up one of the protestors. Trump also told his security personnel:

if you see someone getting ready to throw a tomato, just knock the crap out of them

Bizarrely, Trump even managed to start a debate about whether a tomato is a fruit or a vegetable. Moreover, he even got others to engage with him in the ludicrous argument.

Trump’s defence


In his defence, Trump professes that he got intel about protestors carrying fruits to hit him. He also confessed that he felt threatened by them as ‘flying fruits can be very dangerous’. When asked how he got his hands on this information, he says:

We were told. I thought Secret Service was involved in that, actually. But we were told. And you get hit with fruit, it’s — no, it’s very violent stuff. We were on alert for that.

It seemed that Trump was terrified of flying fruits, especially pineapples, tomatoes and bananas. They were enough for Trump to have his security personnel act 'aggressively' against the demonstrators.
