In March when Donald Trump was campaigning for office, John Franklin McGraw (age 79) sucker punched and threatened Trump protester, Rakeem Jones (age 27) while the protester was being escorted from a Trump rally by police.

In a viral video, McCraw made it clear that he was not the least bit regretful for his actions:

“You bet I liked it. Knocking the hell out of that big mouth…No. 1, we don’t know if he’s ISIS. We don’t know who he is, but we know he’s not acting like an American.”

The Washington Post is reporting that McGraw has been sentenced to 12 months of probation in addition to paying fines after pleading no contest to charges of misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct.

Then in court, this happened:

“I’m extremely sorry this happened,” McGraw told Jones during a hearing in Cumberland County District Court in Fayetteville, N.C. “I hate it worse than anything in the world.”

TELL US: What are your thoughts on this story? Do you think McGraw was sincere in his apologies?
