Andrew Whitmore, 53, was visibly under the influence of alcohol when he decided to throw down his pants and defecate on the schoolyard in front of bewildered students and school personnel.

Whitmore also embarrassed himself even more after losing his balance and falling to the ground in his own pile of feces before eventually being carried away by local police officers.

“He started yelling something about Trump being a racist pig and a fascist cunt or something,” one student told local reporters.

Highly intoxicated

Whitmore later admitted to police officers that he had spent his night drinking and smoking crystal meth.

“He said the situation with Donald Trump and the national anthem had really pissed him off and that he didn’t remember doing the things he had done,” Deputy Sheriff Tom Hannity told local reporters.

“He allegedly had a blackout and does not remember defecating in front of the whole school,” he explained.

Whitmore was arrested on charges of public intoxication and faces six counts of obscenity and could face up to 18 months in jail believe legal experts.

Backpage.com CEO Carl Ferrer, 55, and two others will contest the charges at a hearing next month, defense attorney Cristina Claypoole Arguedas told Sacramento Superior Court Judge Michael Bowman as the three men made their first brief court appearances.

Ferrer is charged with pimping a minor, pimping and conspiracy to commit pimping. The former owners of the Village Voice in New York City, Michael Lacey, 68, and James Larkin, 67, are charged with conspiracy to commit pimping. So the real age is not 55 even as claimed in the viral message.
