Shirley "fell on her oxygen tank and has sore ribs, a sore jaw, and cut her elbow". Yeah, you read that correctly: some Trump thug punched a woman in the face hooked up to an oxygen tank.
This is Trump's America.
ASHEVILLE, N.C. (WLOS) - Police say they arrested five people at Donald Trump's rally Monday night 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 Trump's campaign to the list of things she's protested against.
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.
And the best part of this horrible story...
Many people expressed concerns for Teter on social media, and to those folks she says, "thank you."
After the interview, Teter 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.
