Donald Trump Embraces Woman Who Served Prison Sentence for Involvement in Capitol Riot

Former President Donald Trump embraced Micki Larson-Olson, a QAnon supporter who served a prison sentence for her involvement in the deadly Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol riot, during a campaign stop in New Hampshire on Thursday. The embrace has been met with criticism from some who believe it sends a message of support for the insurrection, while Trump's supporters argue that he was merely showing his appreciation for a supporter. The appearance came the same day former Vice President Mike Pence testified before a federal grand jury as part of an investigation into Trump's efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election.
