This happened after he came up to the Humboldt Republican booth, he was on a bicycle, drove by and grabbed the donation box and then threatened to cut one of volunteers with a knife. At this point, other volunteers and crowd stepped in, tackled him. He called them fascists.
When word spread about this, people came by to donate.

On the other hand, earlier in the day, I was walking by the same booth. There was a woman taking a picture of her young daughter, 6 or 7 years old next to a cut out of Donald Trump. The mother was telling the kid, "No, not like that. Pose like you have a double chin." After that display of her "parenting skills" and taking the photo, she walked away guffawing.
