Massachusetts police are investigating after a car with a bumper sticker critical of former President Donald Trump plowed through the storefront of a business specializing in pro-Trump merchandise on Thursday.

The Easton Police Department posted a shocking video to Facebook that shows a black Volkswagen Jetta driving straight through the front glass of the New England for Trump store near Route 138 and destroying racks of clothes before hitting the back wall.

One employee was inside but not injured, according to police.

Photos from The Enterprise  photographer Marc Vasconcellos show several bumper stickers on the rear bumper, including one with a photo of Trump and a Voltaire quote that reads: “Those who make you absurdities can make you commit atrocities.” There is a barcode on Trump’s upper lip, the position of which appears to be a reference to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.

New England for Trump is a small chain that had stores across Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York and Rhode Island in the runup to the 2020 presidential elections.

Police said the driver of the car was a 46-year-old from nearby Raynham, who was being treated at a nearby hospital for “non-life-threatening injuries.” It is not clear if he has been charged.

The Easton store is one of the last remaining open after the election of Democrat Joe Biden, after which “sales started to drop.”

Biden merch doesn’t sell as well, said owner Keith Lambert, who lives in Easton and specializes in merchandising around hot-market events like the Super Bowl and the World Series.
