This just in: Gay Trump supporter Charles Geier insists that he’s “not a racist” despite damning evidence to the contrary.
Video of 58-year-old Geier shouting racist and misogynistic insults at a Latina woman and her toddler-aged daughter went viral late last week.
“You’re driving in two lanes, you stupid b*tch!” Geier can be heard screaming. “That’s not how we drive in America. Trump’s deporting your stupid cousins today, b*tch!”

Now, speaking to ABC 13, Geier, who asked to go by the name of “Kevin” in the report to protect his identify (even though everyone already knows his name after internet sleuths tracked him down on Facebook), says he’s “so sorry” for the whole thing.
“All I want to say to her is ‘Miss, I’m so sorry, I hope you can understand more and I wish you nothing more than love and happiness for your family.’”
Geier acknowleges that he “reacted in a poor manner” and “said things that were offensive that I shouldn’t have said.”
But, he adds, “I want people to know is that I suffer from bi-polar disorder. It’s very real, it’s not a joke, it’s not an excuse.”
ABC 13 also reports that Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo tweeted that the department is aware of the incident and investigators are currently determining whether a crime was committed.
The @houstonpolice Department is aware of this incident and investigators have been assigned to determine what, if any, crime was committed. Regardless of our finding, the behavior exhibited is abhorrent. #RelationalPolicing https://t.co/6eLkUYt6Pc
