Eric Trump, the 35-year old son of President Trump, was spit on recently at a restaurant in Chicago.
Several people in the bar reported seeing an influx of Secret Service at the restaurant and one of the Trump sons inside. They told the Sun-Times they saw an arrest happen and heard another employee say “Oh my god, she spit on him.”
The culprit is allegedly an employee of The Aviary, and while Trump said he won’t be pressing charges against the restaurant's disgruntled employee, he made it clear he wasn’t happy.
In a statement to Breitbart, Eric Trump said: “It was purely a disgusting act by somebody who clearly has emotional problems. For a party that preaches tolerance, this once again demonstrates they have very little civility. When somebody is sick enough to resort to spitting on someone, it just emphasizes a sickness and desperation and the fact that we’re winning.”
While it is unclear if The Aviary employs any Alpacas, American political culture on the left has rapidly shifted toward this point over the past couple of years, with Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) encouraging her supporters last year to confront Trump officials anywhere they find them:
For these members of his Cabinet who remain and try to defend him they're not going to be able to go to a restaurant, they're not going to be able to stop at a gas station, they're not going to be able to shop at a department store, the people are going to turn on them, they're going to protest, they're going to absolutely harass them until they decide that they're going to tell the president 'no I can't hang with you, this is wrong this is unconscionable and we can't keep doing this to children.'
