Pro-Trump lawyer couple who pointed guns at BLM protesters are branded 'terrorists' in shocking street confrontation


A COUPLE who pulled guns on Black Lives Matter protesters have been branded "terrorists" after being confronted on the street.

Gun-touting lawyers Patricia and Mark McCloskey went viral this June after they were snapped pointing guns at BLM protesters – who they say trespassed on their private street in St Louis, Missouri.

But yesterday The McCloskeys – outspoken supporters of President Trump – were targeted by a passer-by who yelled abuse at them.

They were followed by an unidentified woman as they left a print shop clutching Christmas cards bearing the viral image of them back in June, The Daily Wire reports.

Footage shows the couple leaving a shop as a woman screams at them: "Abolish the suburbs! You are terrorists! No mask!

"You think pointing guns at protesters is nice? It’s fun? You think you’re cool? Abolish the suburbs."

She continues: "Abolish the suburbs, f*** you, and your guns," before unloading a string of expletives.

The video was shared to Twitter, seemingly by the woman who shouted at the couple – although this is unconfirmed.

The couple remain very calm throughout the confrontation, with Mr McCloskey even handing one of the holiday cards to the woman.

Mrs McCloskey also attempts to defend herself for seemingly not wearing a mask – pulling a blue surgical mask from her pocket, but is shouted down.

The couple calmy walk to their car as the woman continues to shout, before the video cuts off.

The couple gained nationwide attention after the June incident caught the attention of president Trump.

He accused the prosecutor that charged the couple with felony unlawful use of a weapon of using "an extreme abuse of power."

The charges were slammed by both Trump and Missouri Republican Governor Mike Parson who said he will likely pardon the couple.

At the time, Trump said it’s "absolutely absurd what is happening to the McCloskeys," according to White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany.

"When you look at St Louis and the two people coming out, they were going to be beat up badly if they were lucky – if they were lucky, okay," Trump told Townhall's Katie Pavlich.

"And the house was going to be totally ransacked and probably burned down like they were trying to burn down churches.

"And these people were standing there, never used it, and they were legal, the weapons.

"And now I understand somebody local, they want to prosecute these people," he added. "It's a disgrace."

They were also invited to speak in support of Trump at the Republican National Convention last month.

A Trump adviser confirmed their participation, as reported by The Washington Post.

The McCloskeys have always claimed they were protecting themselves from protesters marching on their private street after they were charged with one felony count of unlawful use of a weapon.

The couple, both personal injury attorneys, said they feared the crowd was going to kill them and burn down their home.

They compared their house being burned down to the "storming of the Bastille."

Another Trump-supporting Twitter account tweeted out snaps of the holiday cards, images of the couple emblazoned with the slogans: "Still standing," and "Patty and Mark McCloskey v The Mob".

Activist Ian Miles Cheong also tweeted out a still of Mr McCloskey handing over one of the cards with the caption: "Have this energy".
