Welcome to 2020, where you can be charged with assault for breathing on someone....who knew....
Over the weekend, a Trump supporter breathed on a protestor outside the Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia. He has since been charged with simple assault, which is a misdemeanor.
In the video below, you can see Raymond Deskins, 61, get into an argument with two women who was complaining that he was too close to them without a mask.
“Get away!” one of the women yelled.
“I’m not in anybody’s face,” Deskins replied.
“You are in my face and you don’t have a mask,” one of the protestors declared.
Deskins then exhaled in their direction, to which the protestors yelled "that's assault."
“I breathed on you,” he said, and the woman replied, “That’s assault. That’s assault."

One of the protesters, Kathy Beynette, told News4 that they, the alleged victims, are “both senior citizens” and therefore in a “high-risk category.”
“He just proceeded to assault us by taking a deep breath and doing a very powerful exhalation on both of us,” Beynette told the outlet.
“Because of this guy, my family has had to cancel the small Thanksgiving that we had planned with just a few people because I said I might’ve been exposed,” she added.
Virginia does not currently emphasize the use of masks in outdoor spaces.
“While the use of masks, also known as cloth face coverings, has been recommended during the COVID-19 outbreak, as of May 29, 2020, the Commonwealth of Virginia now requires that people wear masks when spending time in indoor public settings,” the Virginia Department of Health states.
“Masks are not needed for going outside to take a walk or work in your garden,” it adds.
This is just absurd, if you ask me.
