A supporter of President Donald Trump was arrested and charged with assault after being seen on video deliberately exhaling on two women outside of President Donald Trump’s golf course in Virginia.
The man, 61-year-old Raymond Deskins, of Sterling, Virginia, — who was not wearing a mask — can be seen in a verbal confrontation with the women who were there protesting Trump. He was wearing a Trump shirt and an inflatable Trump innertube around his belly at the time of the incident.
The women can be heard telling him to get away from them and back up. One of the women yelled at him, “Get away from me! Get away from me!”
The other woman told him, “You don’t get up in somebody’s face,” to which he responded, “I’m not in anybody’s face.”
She replied, “You are in my face — and you don’t have a mask, so you need to back up.”
That’s when the man can be seen exhaling forcefully, apparently in the direction of one of the women. The women gasped in shock as the man turned around with a smirk on his face.
One of the women yelled, “That’s assault!”
The man yelled back, “I breathed on you!” He then exhaled on the woman taking the video.
“Two separate parties reported they were assaulted during a verbal argument outside of Trump National Golf Club,” the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
The Sheriff’s Office later updated their statement, saying: “This afternoon our deputies served a warrant obtained by a citizen through a Loudoun County Magistrate. Raymond Deskins, age 61, of Sterling, VA, was charged with simple assault.”
