Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls says several complaints prompted him to post a picture of a truck with obscene remarks about President Donald Trump and the voters who supported him.
"If I had to explain what "grab them by the p--y" meant to my kids, you can explain "F-k Trump" to yours", another Facebook comment on the post read.
He asked for tips on the identity of the truck's owner and said he would "like to discuss it" with the owner.
Nehls said a prosecutor already told him she could charge the driver with disorderly conduct, which Texas defines as using "abusive, indecent, profane, or vulgar language in a public place, and the language by its very utterance tends to incite an immediate breach of the peace".
District Attorney John Healey disputed Nehls' suggestion that disorderly conduct charges were appropriate in this case, as did free speech advocates.
Attempting to cite this statute suggests Trump supporters could be so triggered by free speech about the president they might incite violence, a particularly hilarious notion considering the right has spent months virtue signaling about the first amendment and scolding leftists for being violent snowflakes. "I think this is more a problem with political speech than actual language".
Fort Bend County is just outside Houston.
Both Bush presidents bash 'blowhard' Donald Trump as unfit for the presidency
The elder Bush was blunt in his critique of then-candidate Trump. "George Bush grew up thinking about the greater good". Bush has openly criticized President Donald Trump , calling him a "blowhard" in a new book , CNN reported .
So.... pretty sure the truck's owner knows his message is being seen. The ACLU tweeted about the issue, encouraging the truck's owners to contact its Texas branch for assistance.

In response to the critics, Nehls posted the disorderly conduct law. "Now you have a breach of the peace". Fonseca said she's surprised Nehls couldn't reach her.
Speaking about the message, Fonseca, 46, told the Houston Chronicle: "It's not to cause hate or animosity".
"It's just our freedom of speech and we're exercising it", she said.
In 2011, Tennessee officials said they'd begin ramping up their enforcement of bumper sticker language - although there haven't been many incidents reported.
"I don't think people are offended, and if they are, they just need to take a deep breath, change the channel, drive by the vehicle, and get on with their lives", Wice said.
