Trump fans bombard nurse’s children with threats after pro-Trump websites publish wrong number
A home health care nurse in Maine said this week that supporters of President-elect Donald Trump have attacked her and her family with more than 100 calls because conservative websites published the wrong number.
Debbie Oram explained to the Bangor Daily News that the callers are upset at the owner of Turner LP Gas, who said he would not deliver gas to anyone who voted for the president-elect because he believes Trump is the antichrist.
Although Oram has no connection to the gas company, she has received more than 100 calls since Friday. It turns out that her number is one digit off from the number of the gas company. While some of the callers have been polite, the nurse said others have been downright scary.
“I’d appreciate anything you can do to put it out there so these calls will stop,” Oram told the paper. “I would hate to change my number but that’s what I’ll have to do if this doesn’t stop. We’ve had our number for years.”
According to Oram, some of the calls threatened her 21-year-old daughter and her 11-year-old son. Her son was so frightened that he began sleeping in his mother’s bedroom.
“They’re saying rude and disgusting things,” she remarked. “I had to go to my doctor today for more anxiety medication because of it.”
