A homeless Donald Trump supporter fell over in an ugly confrontation with bystanders who harassed her for standing guard over his Hollywood Walk of Fame star with inflammatory signs.
In videos posted on social media, one man appeared to physically intimidate her, while others ripped up her signs, which criticized Obama and read ‘F*** Mexico’.
While the crowd jeered at her even after she fell and lay prone on the sidewalk, the Los Angeles Police Department said the woman incited the crowd with racial slurs.
But police are now looking to interview her so they can write a misdemeanor battery report on her behalf, and Trump attorney Michael Cohen was trying to track her down because the Donald ‘has a gift for her’.
Repairs on Trump’s star had been underway after millionaire activist James Otis, 52, wore a construction outfit and smashed the stone with a pick-ax.

The crowd jeered at her even after she fell and lay prone on the sidewalk, but the Los Angeles Police Department said the woman incited the crowd with racial slurs
Trump attorney Michael Cohen was trying to track her down suggesting the Donald wanted to reward her for her support
The woman protecting the star, whose name has not been released by the Los Angeles Police Department, displayed a sign that read: ‘Donald Trump – keeping it real’.
One sign stated ‘twenty million illegals and Americans sleep on the streets in tents’ while another read: ‘U motherf***ers know!!! Take care home first. F*** Mexico’
Yet another declared: ‘Obama threw our black a**es under the bus.’
In one video posted by the DJ Josh LeCash, several people surrounded the homeless woman, calling her a b**** while others threw her signs on the ground and ripped them up.
She tried to collect her belongings in a rolling cart when she fell over and remained on the ground while numerous people continued yelling at her.
Some suggested she was acting hurt, while another man warned: ‘Don’t touch her! Let her be!’
Another man knelt down and lectured: ‘Didn’t I tell you five minutes ago, that somebody was going to walk by here and no, I wasn’t going to defend you.
‘Because you spewed hate, and you got hate. You got exactly what you were dishing out,’ he said.
Several members of the crowd started yelling, ‘Where’s Donald at?’ taunting her over her support for the presidential candidate.
But Trump attorney Michael Cohen tweeted his followers in an attempt to find the homeless woman, suggesting the presidential candidate wanted to reward her for her support.
DJ Josh LeCash, who claims to have ‘studied winning’ at Trump University on Facebook, shared his account of the incident on social media

Repairs had been underway and tensions reached a boiling point when the homeless woman
LeCash, who claims to have ‘studied winning’ at Trump University on Facebook, wrote that he tried to defend the woman.
He said: ‘Earlier tonight on Hollywood and Highland, I went to go check out the vandalized Donald Trump Walk of Fame star.
‘When I got there, there was a huge crowd surrounding a black homeless woman (mob-mentality fashion) berating and making fun of her. THEY EVEN MADE FUN OF HER HOMELESSNESS.
‘I tried defending her and hit the crowd back with some questions / facts (when does that ever matter?) No the crowd weren’t a bunch of redneck white trash racists.
‘They were a group of young diverse millennial liberals who couldn’t handle a black homeless female Trump supporter. I thought they were supposed to be tolerant of other people’s beliefs?’
Otis was arrested for felony vandalism and is due in court on November 18, authorities said
Otis told reporters a short time after he was released from jail on $20,000 bail that he did it to show support for women who have accused Trump of groping them
The video prompted angry calls to police asking why they didn’t intervene.
LAPD Officer Tony Im said Friday that the woman incited the crowd with racial slurs and police at the scene ‘kept the peace.’
The LAPD will look for the woman to interview her, with Im adding: ‘If she’s a victim, she has a right to come forward.’
Koali Fikator, who posted videos of the incident on YouTube that have since been removed, said the woman eventually got up and made a new sign disparaging Mexicans and urging people to vote for Trump.
Jamie Otis, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of felony vandalism and released on bail.
After Wednesday’s pre-dawn attack, he told Deadline Hollywood that he originally intended to remove the star. He said he wanted to auction it off to raise funds for women accusing the presidential candidate of groping them. Trump has denied the groping allegations.
