The tweet was captioned: “Hi mom remember the time you told me I shouldn’t go to BLM protests bc they could get violent…this you?”
In the clip, a white woman grabs phone off a black woman wearing a police uniform before being jabbed in the face.
Helena then shared screenshot of the Trump fan alongside a photo showing a woman she identified as her mother with the words “for those that don't believe it's my mother...”
Another clip showed a bleeding Therese being asked who hit her, to which she replied: “That girl punched me in the face. That black girl.”
Helena responded via a re-tweet of that video, writing: “Mom I think you mean to say that powerful black woman punched you for harassment...”The cop punched Theresa Duke after she tried to steal her phoneCredit: FNTV Theresa Duke didn't tell her daughter she was in Washington D.CCredit: Twitter Helena says her mom abruptly switched support to TrumpCredit: EPA MAGA fans stormed the CapitolCredit: Getty Images - Getty
After punching the woman, the officer is then shoved toward a crowd of cops as a scuffle broke out between the two sides and pepper spray was deployed.
Hundreds of Trump fanatics stormed Capitol Hill after attempting the Save America March addressed by Donald Trump, who questioned the legitimacy of the election.
The violent protest in the nation's capital left five people dead, including a police officer.
The teen told the New York Post that her mom told her she would be out of town for a few days to take her aunt to get a medical procedure.
But she only found out she had gone to Washington D.C to take part in the riots after watching online footage.
“She didn’t give me any more information about it, she was very vague," Helena told The Post.
"When I found out about the Capitol being stormed, I looked at her location sharing and it had been off for two days, so I assumed in that moment, I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, she might actually be there."'
Helena said revealed that her mom is a former Democrat who abruptly changed her political views about three years ago
She believes her mom has been “brainwashed” by the MAGA movement and “whatever the president tells her is right…is what she will go along with”.
Helena says doesn’t believe her mom was among those who actually breached the Capitol though said it was “hypocritical” of her to have prevented her going to BLM demos.
“I think it was definitely so hypocritical of her to end up kicking me out of the house for going to peaceful protests because she assumed they’d be violent, and then end up going to this, which was obviously a very violent attack on the Capitol — and end up harassing a cop,” she said.
