We had video last night of a Trump supporter assaulting several protesters at his rally in Asheville, North Carolina, but today the full story of the violence at this rally is coming out, including a report that one of Trump’s thuggish fans punched a 69-year old woman in the face.

WLOS — ASHEVILLE, N.C. — Police say they arrested five people at Trump’s Monday night rally 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. Now she adds Trump 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.

[…]

After the rally, Teeter experienced something she had never seen in all of her protests. The peace teetered over.

“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.

Ms Teter later called in to North Carolina’s News 13 to say one more thing:

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.
