In a “high-end” cocktail lounge in Chicago a woman who was employed by the establishment, out of nowhere walked up to President Trump’s son Eric Trump and spit in his face. The woman was promptly detained by U.S. Secret Service after the attack. “She was put in handcuffs and placed in a police paddy wagon,” a source with knowledge said. “Eric Trump decided not to press charges against the woman in the end, and she was released from police custody.”
The “disgusting act,” said Eric Trump, “just emphasizes a sickness and desperation and the fact that we’re winning.” Meanwhile, critics of Trump are celebrating the gross act of disrespect.
In a telephone interview with Washington editor Matthew Boyle, Trump said the ordeal 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.”
Breitbart News reported:
“According to sources familiar with the matter, Eric Trump had, with a group of people, come into Aviary, an upscale lounge in Chicago, and the young woman–an employee of the establishment–came right up to him and spit in his face.
Per an eyewitness, she murmured inaudibly something that sounded like it was anti-Trump. Then Secret Service agents who were there protecting Eric Trump jumped into action and took the woman into custody.
She was put in handcuffs and placed in a police paddy wagon, a source with knowledge said. Eric Trump decided not to press charges against the woman in the end, and she was released from police custody.”
Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said on Twitter that officers assisted the Secret Service with a “law enforcement matter” and referred inquiries to the agency.
The Alinea Group, owners of the cocktail lounge where the incident occurred , have put the employee on leave, a punishment that seems not quite severe enough for the act that she committed, but that’s liberal privilege at work.
In a statement, The Alinea Group said Wednesday that it is “just beginning to learn the details” of an “unfortunate incident” that occurred Tuesday evening Trump and an employee at The Aviary.
Official Statement from The Aviary:
“Last night an unfortunate incident occurred between an employee at The Aviary and Eric Trump. We did not witness the incident and we are just beginning to learn the details.
What is certain is this: no customer should ever be spit upon. We have not yet spoken with the employee but our HR team has, in the meantime, placed her on leave. We will not discuss internal HR matters beyond this statement.
More broadly, the online discussion about the incident is troubling. Hundreds of people are calling for the demise of our business, threatening our employees, and posting fake reviews… they are wrong to do so based on the actions of a lone individual.
So too, however, are those people wrong who are praising this as an act of civil disobedience. We have voices and the means to be heard. A degrading act lowers the tenor of debate. To some it might feel good, but it is unlikely to serve any larger purpose.
We hope this incident can, at least, serve to illuminate the current absurdity of the discourse in our politics.
As fellow Americans and citizens, we should all aim higher.”
This is the perfect example of liberal intolerance. They claim to be the party of peace, but they lose their minds when someone disagrees with them. In this case, Eric Trump was attacked simply because he exists. Is this what we should expect from liberals from here on out? Is it the new normal for them to hate and attack someone because of their existence? If that’s the case, then this country is heading down a dangerous path.
