St. Louis Couple To Speak At Virtual GOP Convention

The Washington Post reports:

The St. Louis couple who became famous after wielding guns at protesters on their private street will be part of the largely digital Republican National Convention next week, Trump advisers said this week.

The couple — Patricia and Mark McCloskey — will appear on behalf of the president during the virtual weeklong event and express their support for him, the officials said. A spokesman for the convention declined to comment on the appearance.

The St. Louis couple became well-known this summer after they emerged on the patio of their Versailles-style mansion and waved guns — he a large one, she a smaller one — at a marching, congregating group of Black Lives Matter protesters, who were heading to the mayor’s house down the street.
