The violence has returned to Donald Trump’s rallies, and this time, a 690year-old woman on oxygen was the victim.
Police in Asheville, North Carolina have reportedly arrested five people at a rally on Monday night for Donald Trump.
Police also plan to arrest Richard Campbell of Edisto Island, South Carolina who allegedly punched 69-year-old Shirley Teeter in the face.
Teeter reportedly fell on an oxygen tank she was carrying and has sore ribs, a sore jaw and a cut on her elbow. “Why did I get involved yesterday at my age? Because I ran into another situation that was sickening my heart,” she said on Tuesday.
Teeter 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.
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.
