25. That part of the story seems a tad off

 


She says she went as an "undecided voter".

But then she says that when she got up to leave, she started asking other people "why are you here?" because he has mocked a person with a disability.

But that's something that's been known a long time. It's not what he was doing at the time she decided to leave. She obviously knew that on the way in.

People are entitled to raise their children as they see fit (within limits). I would have tended away from using a 7 year old, with no choice in the matter, to make a point to people at a Trump rally.

If she wanted to say "I took my disabled child to a Trump rally to make a point" that's certainly her prerogative. But saying that she was undecided and that, suddenly during that rally, she decided to take offense to something he did months ago, strikes me as disingenuous.

YMMV
