There have been multiple cases of Trump Administration members facing harsh treatment when they are out in public. The Red Hen restaurant on Lexington, Virginia refused to serve Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Kirstjen Nielsen, who was heavily involved in the child separation policy, was confronted by multiple activists at a DC eatery.
While he does not serve in any official capacity, the President’s son, Eric, was exposed to the same kind of treatment Tuesday night. Trump claims a waitress from Chicago Bar, Aviary, spit on him while he was eating dinner in the cocktail lounge.
The President’s son told Brietbart News, “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.”
Nick Kokonas, a co-owner of the bar has been critical of the Trump Administration in the past. After Donald Trump treated the Clemson Tigers to a fast food dinner, Kononas said, “I’m personally inviting the Clemson Tigers team and coaches to Chicago to experience what an actual celebration dinner should be.”
Fox News Brian Kilmeade painted Eric Trump as a martyr. He said today on Fox & Friends, “It’s part of the sacrifice of the Trump family. Half the country lauds them and love them, and the other half is angry, and it’s not easy being the child of a president of the United States.”
