Trump was worth the wait for Kingsport sisters

JOHNSON CITY — For sisters Linda Barnette and Katherine McMurray, the wait Monday to get into Freedom Hall Civic Center was well worth it. The two drove from their homes in Kingsport at 2:30 a.m. to line up for President Donald Trump’s campaign rally for U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn.

But make no mistake, it was Trump they had come to see. Both both wore red T-shirts that read “Women for Trump 2020” on the front and “Deplorables” on the back. Barnette said the shirts were made by their niece just a few days before before the rally.

“We are the biggest Trump fans,” Barnette said.

Their early morning trip paid off as the sisters were among the first allowed into Freedom Hall before 4 p.m. The sisters ate nachos and spoke to fellow Trump supporters as the crowd began filing in.
