The “Women for Trump” bus tour took a pit stop at the Hardee’s parking lot in Boone on Monday after rallies in Charlotte and Gastonia earlier in the day. A few dozen folks turned out for the event.

Prior to the event, “Women for Trump” Director Nancy Schulze said in a release, “We’re women who care deeply about the real America – the one that Hillary Clinton, Saul Alinsky, Barack Obama and George Soros are trying to transform.  We are not at a crossroads in this election, we are at the edge of a cliff – and in just a few days women who outvote men by a lot will determine whether we go off that cliff, or begin to rebuild this country.”

Speakers included Latoya Coffield – an African American “convert” to the Republican Party, Dorothy Woods, Gold Star Widow of Tyrone Woods, killed in Benghazi, who will talk about what Hillary said and did “off-camera,” and Gold Star Mother, Karen Vaughn – whose Navy Seal son, Aaron, was killed in Afghanistan aboard Extortion 17.

At the Charlotte rally, Dorothy Woods, also a U.S. Navy Veteran, said that Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton “turned her back” while saying it was time to move on from Benghazi, the Charlotte Observer reported.

“It’s not a choice for me,” Woods said. “I am voting for Donald Trump.…I feel like the mainstream media forces voters to get bent out of shape about how Trump says things. But Hillary Clinton is a woman who has repeatedly acted in a way that disqualifies her from being our next commander in chief. Are we basing our decision on how someone sounds, or on actual evidence of how someone acts? He deserves a chance. She had hers.”

The “Women for Trump” rallies on Monday come a few days after the Washington Post published a 2005 recording of a hot mic capturing some “extremely lewd” comments toward women made by Trump while he was on the set of “Days of Our Lives” soap opera.
