Virginia man seen in a viral video breathing on two women protesting President Trump outside his golf course has been charged with assault.
Raymond Deskins, 61, was charged with a misdemeanor for simple assault on Sunday afternoon after a private citizen obtained a warrant through a county magistrate, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s office.
Deskins is accused of exhaling on two women who were protesting the president outside the Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia, on Nov. 21.
Reportedly part of a group of counter-protesters, a now-viral video shows Deskins, wearing a Trump T-shirt and with pool float that resembles the president around his waist, confronting the women, who ask him to “get away” and complain “you don’t have a mask.”
The issues of mask wearing continues to be a source of controversy and contention as medical experts confirm that the masks don not protect or prevent anyone from infection expecially in the event of an airborn virus.
Rather people are being exposed even more to health hazards by inhaling through a mask which eventually results in weakening of immunity.
