Political Clash Captured on Camera

TULSA -- Political tension comes to a head in Midtown Tulsa after a President Trump supporter captured on video his clash with a woman who admits to leaving anti-Trump notes on his porch.

It started last week when Morgan Casper saw notes posted on his front porch, one saying "Real men don't grope". That's when Casper decided to find the person responsible for attacking his political beliefs.

He posted a surveillance camera on his porch and surely enough, caught a woman posting the note on the pumpkin near the steps to his house.

"It just breaks my heart that someone thinks that way of someone else that they don't even know," said Casper.

He was driving Monday evening in his neighborhood, when he spotted the woman walking her dog on his street. He decided to pull over and confront her about the notes.

CASPER: "Hi I have a question. I noticed you've been putting letters on my porch."

WOMAN: "No."

At first the woman denied it, but Casper continued to tell her she was filmed on his camera leaving the notes and he knew it was her. She then began to argue with him about Trump.

WOMAN: "I just went on disability this last year, I live on a thousand dollars a month, and Trump is threatening that."

The back and forth lasted about five minutes. Casper said just because he supports President Trump, doesn't mean he approves of everything he does.

CASPER: "You don't know who I am, so for you to think every Trump supporter is like that, is terrible."

WOMAN: "Just like the button said, all of these things Trump is, and that's okay with you apparently."

She is referring to the note she left on his porch reading, "Not all Trump supporters are overtly racist, or ableist, or misogynist, but every one of them decided hating people with brown skin, disabilities, or women wasn't a deal-breaker. Own that decision".

The woman walked away from Casper, and the two didn't resolve much. Casper hopes the woman learned to not stereotype Trump supporters, and not harass anyone based on their political beliefs.

"Maybe one day she'll approach me and we'll work together and who knows maybe become friends out of it, because I learned something out of it and I hope she learned something out of it," said Casper.

Casper hasn't seen the woman since their conversation and doesn't know where she lives.

We reached out to several neighbors in the area, but none of them recognized her.
