WASHINGTON, D.C. — Andover resident Carolyn Morrow attended Wednesday’s protest march in Washington, D.C., in support of President Donald Trump.
Morrow told the Star Beacon what it was like to actually be there.
“We didn’t see one act of violence during President Trump’s speech — nothing but love and support,” she said. “All the bogus about weapons and cinder blocks being dropped on sidewalks isn’t true.”
Morrow was one of thousands of Trump’s supporters who traveled to the nation’s Capitol to assert that the presidential election was stolen from Trump. He took the stage about noon to roaring crowds, claiming he won the election.
The demonstrations then turned violent Wednesday afternoon and some supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol building. Wednesday was the day Congress votes to certify that President-elect Joe Biden won the election.
Morrow was aware some protestors broke into the Capitol building. She doesn’t believe the situation was as violent as the media reported.
“Patriots are outside of the chambers and they are serious about the election being stolen and they don’t want to back down,” she said. “I am not in the Capitol building. I can’t say exactly what is happening in there, but I’m telling you the media is lying about everything here.”
