The infamous couple who defended their home from protestors appeared on President Donald Trump’s virtual campaign event as guests.
The culture wars have taken center stage just a few months away from the 2020 election.
The McCloskeys have been unfairly used by the Leftist media as a weapon against Donald Trump.
Thankfully, they got a chance to tell their side of the story without being verbally accosted when they were interviewed by campaign staffer Kimberley Guilfoyle.
CBS News has the story:
Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the St. Louis couple who went viral last month when they brandished guns while confronting Black Lives Matter protesters outside their home, appeared at a virtual Trump campaign event on Friday night. They were interviewed by Kimberly Guilfoyle, the girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr. and former Fox News personality who now hosts a web series for the campaign called "Making the Case," which is also the title of her 2015 memoir.
"I thought I was going to die," Mark McCloskey told Guilfoyle. Video that circulated of the June 28 demonstration showed protesters walking through an unbroken gate in the neighborhood, but McCloskey said Friday that protesters "smashed" through the gate. A photo on CBS St. Louis affiliate KMOV shows the gate is now broken, but it's unclear when it was damaged.
"I thought that within seconds we'd be overrun, they'd be in the house, they'd be setting fires, they'd be killing us," Mark McCloskey told Guilfoyle. Patricia McCloskey maintains they called the police before grabbing the guns despite police stating they received no calls from the couple's street at the time of the incident, KMOV reported.
Guilfoyle also praised Patricia McCloskey for "standing by your husband, holding a gun." Patricia McCloskey later told Guilfoyle that "it's time that we not just stand behind men. We need to buck up and learn."
Police executed a search warrant last week and seized Mark McCloskey's gun. The couple's former attorney later turned over Patricia McCloskey's gun. Guilfoyle asked what they are doing to get the firearms back, and the McCloskeys responded by saying they are "relying on private security."
Guilfoyle stressed it is their "constitutional right" to have guns, and said "apparently, people are just allowed to burn down people's homes, or shoot people or kill people."
For the couple, who as far as we can tell weren't exactly "right-wing maga-fans" like the the media have made them out to be, this nightmare continues.
Perhaps now they will consider voting for President Donald Trump this coming election.
They've already become the poster people for the Second Amendment!
In the meantime, someone should look into the sham of a prosecuter who is going after the McCloskeys.
Looks like Governor Mike Parson has their backs for now!
