3. Ironically, one of Trump's superfans was killed in a wreck because he wasn't wearing a seatbelt.

Just finished reading Michael Bender's book. He followed some of Trump's Front Row Joes throughout and one of the leaders was killed in a wreck on the way home from a Trump rally. Killed when he was ejected from the vehicle.

Passionate 'Front Row Joe' Trump supporter dies in highway crash near St. Peter

A southwestern Minnesota man whose passionate support for President Donald Trump took him to dozens of political events around the country and recently to the White House was killed in a highway crash while returning from a political celebration in Florida.

Randal J. Thom, 60, of Lakefield died in a collision shortly before 4:30 p.m. Monday on Hwy. 169 north of St. Peter, the State Patrol said. Thom was driving his minivan south and hit a pickup truck that also was heading south, the patrol said.

Evidence of recent alcohol use by Thom was detected at the scene, according to the patrol. Thom was not wearing a seat belt, the patrol added.

The other driver, James A. Mollenhauer, 67, of nearby Le Sueur, survived his injuries and was taken to a Mankato hospital.


According to Bender the "evidence of recent alcohol use" was numerous unopened cans of beer in the wreckage. Thom's FRJ buddies think they were just what was left in his cooler as he drove home.
