A short, but extremely provocative exchange occurred as the woman was about to cross the street, with her back turned to the abuser, who shouted at her first. Upon hearing her reply about the tragic circumstances of her husband’s death, the man yelled:
“Good for him! Good. Good. NYPD were a bunch of sodomized — f**king sodomizing immigrants with their bully sticks. Your husband should probably f**king rot in the grave.”
INSTANT KARMA:— Benny (@bennyjohnson) 18 октября 2018 г.
Liberal man insulted a 9/11 widow, saying her husband should "rot in his grave." Then, he gets confronted by her (very large) son.
Just watch the reaction…too perfect. pic.twitter.com/mXfU4uiEAx
The abuse happened in Portland, the US state of Oregon, when left-wingers clashed with pro-Trump groups.
Netizens instantly responded by sharing their shock and disappointment with the exchange. However, what left most at loss for words was the instant the abuser cowardly fled the scene after being confronted by the woman’s big, broad-shouldered son, further attracting a large group of Trump-supporting activists.
Someone find this dude and teach him a lesson— Ethan. (@kidwho101) 18 октября 2018 г.
Many verbally supported the woman admiring her extraordinarily calm disposition:
She was calm, if it had been me I would have been throwing punches. This woman is brave.— Melanie Deal (@MelanieLDeal76) 18 октября 2018 г.
Pro-Trump rhetoric naturally ran high on Twitter:
Such a complete jackass, all these morons just re-enforce why common sense ppl to vote RED. I feel sorry for the ppl that have to put up with these goofballs!!— Terry Casey (@terry_tkcbevman) 19 октября 2018 г.

Many kept heartily laughing at the man’s cowardly reaction:
Yeah and when he needs the police he'll be the first one to go running to them.— Joey Kramer (@JoeyKramerNYC) 18 октября 2018 г.
Many tried to picture themselves at the scene:
Why couldn't I be right behind this guy when he was being such a "man".— PhillyTarheel (@halter91) 18 октября 2018 г.
I would have emptied a whole clip through this mans head.— Johnathon Duncan (@jhbd27) 18 октября 2018 г.
Remind me again never to travel to Portland. Wow.— anon y mouse (@anonymo35715957) 19 октября 2018 г.
He deserves to get knocked out for providing a disrespectful comment like that.— Jon Mackrow (@jon_mackrow) 18 октября 2018 г.
One woman noted such behavior should not be assessed from a political perspective:
Portland has the worst of the right and the left. Reasonable people should condemn this kind of behavior, regardless of politics.— SRFletch (@SRFletch805) 18 октября 2018 г.
