COLORADO–(ENEWSPF)–October 6, 2016
Jennifer Mau and her daughter before being escorted out by Secret Service
Jennifer Mau said she is an undecided voter and wanted to attend Donald Trump’s Loveland, Colorado rally with her 7-year-old disabled daughter. Mau admits she had previously been taken aback by Trump’s mocking of a disabled reporter, but wanted to see the candidate for herself.
About 20 minutes into the rally she decided she’d seen enough and turned to leave with her daughter. That’s when Trump supporters began heckling Mau and her daughter:
When we were leaving, somebody said, ‘Why are you leaving?’ and basically struck a nerve,” Mau said. “I said, ‘Why are you here? He makes fun of people like you.'”
Several people yelled at her – one followed her, telling her if she loved her daughter she should vote for Trump — until she said Secret Service escorted her out of the rally.
Mau said she was saddened to be harassed for standing up for her daughter with disabilities, but she said she was happy to see some people walk out with her, saying her daughter is beautiful.
Taunting a mother and her disabled daughter? I’d say that qualifies as deplorable. You can see an interview with Jennifer Mau at thedenverchannel.com.
