citizen-times.com – By Joel Burgess – ASHEVILLE NC – Shirley Teter participated in protests during some of the most controversial and conflict-ridden times in our nation’s history. But she said she was shocked at her experience at Monday’s Donald Trump rally that ended with the 69-year-old being punched by a South Carolina man, police say. Teter lives downtown and went to protest against the Republican candidate during his rally at the U.S. Cellular Center, where 7,000 attended and hundreds more protested.
She has chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and relies on an oxygen tank to help breathe, and after the punch Teter ended up in the hospital until 2 a.m. Tuesday, she said.
“People need to know what state of agitation he puts people in,” she said of Trump.”
