Texas mother kicks out son for voting for Trump in mock election

Fort Bend County, Tex. (CNN) — A Texas mother yelled at her eight year old son for voting for Donald Trump in a mock election – while the camera phone rolls. “Here’s your suitcase. Bye. Get your suitcase get your suitcase and get out. Bye,” she said. “And get your sign, so when the people see you outside they know why you’re standing out there.”

That sign in his hand says “My mom kicked me out the house because I voted for Donald Trump.”

Someone posted the video to social media, and it has been shared thousands of times.

“I think it’s crazy.  People need to realize when you put certain things on social media, you never know how far it’s gonna go.”

Neighbors were absolutely shocked to see that this happened right on their street. “I’ve been on this street for four years–awesome family.”

While reporters were in front of the house this evening, CPS came by. Whoever was inside spoke to her through the door, and the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office is also investigating.

“I have personally met with the family and saw the child, his well-being.  He appears to be in good health,” said Detective Joe Luera.

Detective Joe Luera says he met with the mom and the little boy off-site. “She explains it was a joke.”

The same thing she told eyewitness news over the phone. She initially agreed to share her story on camera, but that changed. So for now, this is what we have from her.
