So can we all agree that THIS Trump supporter is deplorable?
Police have announced plans to arrest Richard Campbell of South Carolina for assaulting a woman after a Donald Trump rally Monday night in Asheville, North Carolina.
Campbell allegedly punched 69 year old Shirley Teter, who wears an oxygen mask and portable oxygen tank, outside the Trump event.
“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, Teter 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 cut her elbow. She later went to the hospital and is thankful she did not break any bones.
According to News 13, called the station back after her interview asking if people find a Trump supporter punching her in the face deplorable.
You’ve got to love her sense of humor.
