She has described herself as “Miami’s selfie champion”. But it is not for the selfies that Mayra Joli got the attention of both Twitter and President Donald Trump.
The President of the United States and his opponent Joe Biden attended a public meeting on Friday night, where they answered questions from voters, among other things.
During Trump’s meeting in Miami, one of these voters got a lot of attention on social media.
Trump and Biden in voter rallies: Corona, conspiracy theories and the Supreme Court
Right behind the president sat a woman wearing a red bandage, who nodded enthusiastically to several of his statements. She also showed thumbs-up signs as she shook her head during critical questions from host Savannah Guthries.
– How did Trump manage to get the woman who nodded to him in the background all the time, asks Howard Fineman, who is a commentator for NBC, on Twitter.
The search for the woman’s identity was thus underway, and the Miami Herald newspaper was quick to provide more information: The nodding woman turned out to be Mayra Joli, a lawyer and Trump activist who, among other things, has declared herself Miami’s “selfie champion”.
Two years ago, she ran for congressional election, and was then clear that she supported Trump’s policies.
– We support you! You are the best, Joli told Trump after the event in a video she sent directly on Facebook.
– Where are you from? asked Trump.
– I’m from the Dominican Republic, but I’m American. I’m American!
– I appreciate the support, Trump responds, after mentioning the former baseball legend Sammy Sosa, who is also from the Dominican Republic.
During the TV broadcast, the hashtag #noddinglady was diligently used on Twitter, and several compared her to the fly that made headlines after the vice presidential debate between Mike Pence and Kamala Harris.
The Miami rally was pre-marketed as an event for voters who are still unsure who they will vote for. NBC has not yet responded to the Miami Herald’s request as to whether it was they who decided who was allowed to be present during the event.
Another who got a lot of attention on social media was one of the voters who got to ask Trump a question.
– Good evening, President. I want to say you have a great smile. You are so handsome when you smile, said Paulette Dale, who made most people forget that she asked a question about Donald Trump’s immigration policy.
