The loving left strikes again.
The way-too-old daughter of a Democrat county commissioner in Ohio was one of three people arrested on disorderly conduct outside President Trump’s rally in Toledo last Thursday.
Laura Gerken is a whooping 36-years-old (too old to be “street fighting” over politics, right?) and she was engaged in a physical fight with a Trump supporter, screaming obscenities and resisting arrest when officers attempted to handcuff her.
Her father is Pete Gerken – a Lucas County commissioner since 2005.
But here’s the kicker…Her father joined fellow Democrats in the days leading up to the rally, calling on Trump to be “respectful” towards the local community during his visit.
Isn’t that ironic?
The guy calling for “civility” and “respect” can’t even control his wildly disrespectful, mentally deranged adult daughter.

Lindsey Rowland, 29, of Oregon, also was arrested outside the rally. Police said she was reportedly unsteady on her feet and punched an officer. She was charged with disorderly conduct and public intoxication, according to the outlet.
Police said a third person, John Miller, was drinking around the time of the rally and refused to leave, according to Toledo’s WTOL-TV. He was also charged with disorderly conduct.
City spokesman Ignazio Messina said Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz was “super pleased with how police and firefighters handled” the rally and estimated it cost taxpayers $30,000 due to police overtime, the Blade reported.
“Those who attended the rally and those who protested outside all exercised their free speech peacefully,” he wrote, according to the outlet. [Fox News]
Gerken issued a statement in response to his daughter’s arrest:
“All Americans have the right to free speech and to exercise their right to express their opinions,” Gerken said. “The Toledo police department and all law enforcement professionals did a great job yesterday protecting everyone’s safety in the downtown area. Like so many other Americans, we feel strongly about the views of President Trump. We will deal with this issue as a family.”
So, do all Americans have the right to punch other Americans because they don’t like who they voted for, Pete?
These loser liberals would have nothing if they didn’t have hypocrisy.
