This woman got a prime seat at a Trump rally, and spent the whole time reading a book about racism
This woman got a prime seat behind Donald Trump Monday at a rally in Springfield, Illinois and spent her time reading a book.
Not just any book though, she was reading "Citizen: An American Lyric" by Claudia Rankine, which contains poetry focused on race.
A couple behind her was infuriated, and tapped her on the shoulder asking her to stop. She wouldn't, and gave an explanation that clearly did not please the two. The exchange went on for the better part of 30 seconds, followed by the couple staring her down for the rest of the rally.
