Woman Who Rammed Mar-a-Lago Security is Anti-Trump Bernie Supporter
Opera singer Hannah Roemhild crashed through checkpoints at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate
A Connecticut woman who was involved in a high-speed chase near President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate is reportedly a Bernie Sanders supporter.
Opera singer Hannah Roemhild posted on her Facebook page a photo of the 2017 Women’s March, which featured an anti-Trump protest sign reading “Not My President."
She also posted a link to Sanders explaining his position in support of abortion with the supportive hashtag “feeltheBern" in 2016.
In 2017, Roemhild posted an image likening President Donald Trump to Donald Duck.
On Friday, Florida Highway Patrol trooper responded to a call of a woman acting “irrationally” and “doing some kind of dance” on top of a car, according to the Associated Press.
Roemhild ignored the police, even when they pounded on the window of her vehicle.
She then threw the vehicle in reverse before the trooper then smashed the window in a futile effort to stop her from escaping.
A dramatic chase followed was the vehicle dodged two checkpoints that were in place because Trump was arriving later in the day.
Members of the Secret Service and Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office shot at the vehicle, but it was able to escape, according to the AP.
A license plate reader later spotted the vehicle.
Roemhild was later taken into custody after being found at a local hotel.
This is the Hannah Roemhild who was shot at by law enforcement and then arrested after she rammed through checkpoints at Mar-a-Lago today. I bet you’re all shocked to find out that she’s a Democrat who hates Trump. 🙄 https://t.co/y3iqPlq6Hu— Robby Starbuck (@robbystarbuck) January 31, 2020
Bradshaw said Roemhild was “obviously impaired” during the incident, the New York Post reported.
“There was clearly no intention,” Bradshaw said.
“I’m not sure she knew where she was going.”
Reomhild was scheduled to appear before Palm Beach County Circuit Judge Ted S. Booras Saturday but has bow be planned for Monday after she refused, according to the Palm Beach Post.
She now faces chared of assault on a federal office, deadly attack on a sheriff’s deputy, along with traffic charges for driving her car through the checkpoints.
“She is a lovely singer and was a lovely person,” Michelle Murray-Fiertek, executive director of the Hartford Opera Theater, said, according to the Palm Beach Post.
“She was a responsible supporter of the arts,” Murray-Fiertek said.
