Shocking video showing a Trump supporter coughing on Black Lives Matter protesters is going viral on the internet – and the perpetrator appears to be unrepentant.
The incident occurred outside a gas station in Kanab, Utah on Saturday, after the Trump fan seemingly approached the group who had gathered for a demonstration.
The man may have been coaxed over to the crowd after they noticed that he had a large Trump 2020 flag flying from the back of his truck.
Video begins with the man speaking to the protesters and stating: ‘Back off, you’re the one talking s**t to me! F**k off!’

He then notices one of the protesters filming, at which point he faces directly into the camera and says: ‘Everybody knows who i am. My name is Robert Brissette. Find me on Facebook!’
The Trump fan continues: ‘I hate all you Democrats. Black lives don’t matter. All lives matter!’
The man and the protesters then exchange heated obscenity, before the man suddenly starts to cough in his adversaries’ faces.
Several members of the group squeal, seemingly worried about contracting COVID-19.
‘You look like a pansy a** piece of s**!’ Brisette then yells at one of the protesters.
He continues his exaggerated cough, before sarcastically remarking: ‘I’m so scared of your f**king virus’.

A scuffle between Brisette and the BLM protesters continues, before he remarks: ‘I could charge you with assault for hitting me… You assaulted me first!’
He eventually walks back to his truck, but is followed by several demonstrators who continue to yell at him.
According to the New York Daily News, Brisette has no regrets about his fiery clash with the activists.
The publication reports that he has changed his Facebook profile picture to feature a statement which reads: ‘ Lives matter! If you need a color in front of those words, YOU’RE a racist.’
He later shared – and then deleted – a link to a GoFundMe page titled ‘Court cost to fight against BLM’, implying he had been charged over the incident.
In one Facebook post, Brisette addressed the viral video, stating: ‘Do not believe partial videos they do not tell the hole (sic) story. A group will only post what they want you to believe and without telling the hole (sic) story behind the actions of a person’.
