Minnesota woman interrupts a press conference outside the State Capitol as she drives into the lawn in an SUV with Trump flag
The unexpected incident happened during a press conference organized by Minnesota state Representative John Thompson. Spectators and other speakers were shocked when a woman with anti-Biden stickers and a Trump flag rode through the lawn of the Capitol building.
“I am a white woman! There is only one race! " the woman driver screamed until police officers arrested her.
The woman was identified as 52-year-old Tammi Jeka.
