This week Trump supporters punched an elderly woman, slapped a protestor, and hung Hillary in effigy

This week Trump supporters punched an elderly woman, slapped a protestor, and hung Hillary in effigy
Heather Timmons September 14, 2016

There are eight weeks to go before the US presidential election, and the rhetoric and anger appears to be increasing on the campaign trail and off.

In recent days supporters of Donald Trump have physically clashed with protestors demonstrating against the Republican candidate, and one hung a representation of Democratic rival Hillary Clinton from a noose.


Meanwhile, white supremacist David Duke heaped praise on Trump’s running mate Michael Pence, after Pence refused to call him “deplorable” in a Sept. 12 interview.

In Asheville, North Carolina, a 69-year-old woman with an oxygen tank, who was part of a crowd of hundreds of protestors, was punched in the face by a Trump supporter outside a rally on Sept. 12. Shirley Teter told the local ABC affiliate she had told a Trump supporter that he should learn to speak Russian if Trump wins. “He stopped in his tracks, and he turned around and just cold-cocked me,” Teter said. She fell on her oxygen tank, injuring her ribs.
