I was punched by a Trump supporter

My ribs ache. I can't chew. I'm all scraped up. But I'm still 100% committed to speaking out against Donald Trump.

Dear MoveOn member,

A Trump supporter belted me in the jaw and knocked me to the ground as I was peacefully protesting outside a Trump campaign event.

My ribs ache. I can’t chew. I’m all scraped up. But I’m still 100% committed to speaking out against Donald Trump's hatred, which is just sickening to my heart.

People ought to know about the kind of violence Donald Trump is stirring up. Media stories just aren’t painting the full picture. And I didn’t really understand it until I experienced it firsthand. We can’t let this dangerous man anywhere near our White House.

Will you take one minute to watch my story of being assaulted by a Trump supporter—and then share it with your family and friends, so that more and more people see the kind of angry agitation this man is stirring up? (Not on Facebook? Scroll to the bottom of this email for a link to watch it on YouTube.)

When that Trump supporter hit me, I fell backwards onto my oxygen tank.

(I have something called Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, or COPD, so I carry an oxygen tank and I’m hooked up to its tubes—everywhere I go.)

I had to go to the hospital, but I’m still glad I stood up to Trump.

So I'm sharing my story, with help from MoveOn, because I now see how much the media is sugar-coating the hatred and violence that's at the heart of the Trump campaign.

Will you take one minute to watch and share my story with your family and friends? We've just got to keep this man from winning.

Thanks for all you do.

Want to support our work? Senator Elizabeth Warren says, "I'm so enthusiastic about MoveOn's smart and targeted plan to hire a network of organizers in key battleground states to mobilize and train volunteers to knock on hundreds of thousands of doors. It's bold and ambitious—and exactly what is needed to help swing Senate races, resoundingly defeat Donald Trump, and give Democrats a fighting chance to take back the House."
