Voter who shut down Trump for interrupting her at a town hall says she 'broke down' and cried after

their exchange

The woman who got into a tense exchange with President Donald Trump at an ABC News town hall event on Tuesday said she broke down and cried afterwards in frustration over the interaction.

Ellesia Blaque, an assistant professor at Kutztown University in Pennsylvania, asked Trump about healthcare during the event, and when he started speaking midway through her question, she said: "Please stop and let me finish my question, sir." Clips of the interaction went viral the next day.

In an interview with MSNBC after the town hall, Blaque said the moment felt like a student cutting her off during a lecture.

She said she spoke with several friends afterwards who said she acted just as they thought she would.

"Respect is reciprocal ... You have to wait until I articulate the question in its completion before you determine what the answer is," Blaque said.

Blaque also said she was not satisfied with the president's answer to her question about whether Trump would make sure that people with preexisting conditions like herself are covered by insurers, as was written into law by the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

1. We are in a war and we're going to win but we have to understand it's going to get bad

2. She was expecting empathy and understanding?

. . . from Trump?

After almost 4 years of Trump, she went to the town-hall because she could not yet decide between Biden . . . and Trump.

And she was so shocked and hurt by the experience . . . that she cried.

Zeus help us.

5. I can't begin to imagine how she could consider herself undecided,

especially given she has pre-existing health conditions.

She's an effing college professor and she doesn't really understand what's been going on? I gather she has spent the last four years inside a cave and watching reruns of Big Bang Theory or some other not quite the real world show.
