A Trump supporter was caught on video threatening a female motorist with a sword outside a polling place during a roadside Trump rally in Beverly Hills, California.
Australian actress Ajay Rochester (@ajayrochester) uploaded a video to TikTok over the weekend, exposing the alleged “voter intimidation” that took place as she drove through the horde of Trump supporters shouting and waving flags, including QAnon conspiracy cult flags.
As she approached the intersection, a man approaches her car and begins to harass her.
“We got you now. Your mother voted for Trump,” says the man, who is holding a small Trump flag in one hand and a sword with an even smaller Trump flag attached to the tip in the other. “Your mother loves Trump, I asked her. We got your plates, we got you.”
The man then walks in front of Rochester’s car and appears to take a picture of her license plate.
“We got your plates, baby. We know who you are now,” the man says as he returns to her passenger-side window. “You’re gonna vote for Trump whether you like it or not. You got no choice. You cannot resist Trump. We got you. We fucking got you.”
In a series of follow-up videos, Rochester explained that she got stuck in the middle of the Trump rally while driving home. Trump supporters apparently gather there every weekend, arriving by bus from out of town. The rally ran for three blocks, and it was across the street from a polling place.
“At first it was kind of like, ‘Oh, rabid Trumpies,’ and then it got crazier and crazier and crazier,” she said.
Rochester said she reported the threatening Trump supporter to the Beverly Hills police, though they “didn’t really seem to care too much about it.”
She said she was also researching where to report him for voter suppression and invited her fellow TikTokers to share his identity if they found it.
