This story is almost impossible to believe. But Monday night outside of a rally, a Trump supporter literally punched a 69-year-old woman with an oxygen tank in the face. Yes, really.
When Hillary called some of Trump’s supporters deplorable, the righties lost their minds. Well, I’d like to know if they will admit now that people like this are most definitely deplorable.
Monday night Trump held a rally in Asheville, North Carolina. And, once again, there was violence inside and outside.
WLOS — ASHEVILLE, N.C. — Police say they arrested five people at Trump’s night rally Monday in Asheville, and as of publishing have warrants out for two more people.
Police plan to arrest Richard Campbell of Edisto Island, South Carolina for assault on a female.
That female is 69-year-old Shirley Teter.
She has protested her whole life, she said. Now she adds Donald Trump’s campaign to the list of things she’s protested against.
“Why did I get involved yesterday, at my age? Because I ran into another situation that was sickening my heart,” she said Tuesday afternoon, outside Cafe 64 in downtown Asheville.
Protesters met Trump supporters before the rally, and Teter was having fun.
“Whenever groups of them would start chanting ‘Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump!’ I would chant back, ‘Dump, dump, dump, dump.’ It was kind of comical,” Teter said.
After the rally, Teeter experienced something she had never seen in all of her protests. Peace teetered over into something else.
“I said you better learn to speak Russian, and I said the first two words are going to be, ha ha. He stopped in his tracks, and he turned around and just cold-cocked me,” Teter said.
She was punched in the face.
She says she fell on her oxygen tank and has sore ribs, a sore jaw, and a cut on her elbow. She later went to the hospital and is thankful she did not break any bones.
Police said they didn’t make an arrest because officers didn’t witness the punch.
Teter thanked the police for giving her a ride home. She said they were wonderful.
Many people expressed concerns for Teter on social media, and to those folks she says, “Thank you.”
After the interview, Teeter called News 13. She wanted to add one more thing, a question.
She asks if people find a Trump supporter punching her in the face deplorable.
