The St. Louis couple who wielded guns at BLM protesters will be part of the largely digital Repulsive National Convention next week…
Patricia and Mark McCloskey will appear on behalf of the president during the virtual weeklong event and express their support for him, Trump officials said.
According to The Washington Post,
The St. Louis couple became well-known this summer after they emerged on the patio of their Versailles-style mansion and waved guns — he a large one, she a smaller one — at a marching, congregating group of Black Lives Matter protesters, who were heading to the mayor’s house down the street.
The couple was later charged, and they were criticized for their aggressive move menacing demonstrators. But their supporters said they were simply protecting their private property and were fearful for their safety.
Other RNC speakers will include a “who’s that?” of the Republican party; former U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley, and Sens. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) and Joni Ernst (R-Iowa).
