That time a Trump supporter punched a 69-year-old woman

Police have issued arrest warrants for 2 people following more violence at one of Donald Trump's rallies.

This time, the rally took place in the US Cellular Center in Asheville, North Carolina on Monday.

A man clocked 69-year-old Shirley Teter in the face as she exited the rally, apparently because she told Trump supporters, "You'd better learn to speak Russian."

Teter breathes with the help of an oxygen tank and was in the hospital until 2 a.m. the next morning.

The warrant in that case is for 73-year-old Richard Campbell.

Police also issued a warrant for Thomas Vellenti Jr. in relation to a disturbance during the rally. The incident, caught on video, shows a man in a gray shirt striking multiple protesters. Lovely.
