A restaurant server who allegedly spat on Eric Trump, the President’s son, has been placed on leave. In the wake of the incident, the media has entertained the idea of restaurant attacks being a form of legitimate resistance.
Trump Jnr. was allegedly spat on in The Aviary, a swanky Chicago cocktail lounge, on Tuesday night. Police and secret service were called to the scene, and Trump ultimately declined to press charges. However, he told Breitbart that the incident was “despicable,” and called his attacker “someone who clearly has emotional problems.”
The incident was decried by conservative pundits. “If you’re celebrating this trend, you’re a loser,” radio host Joe ‘Pags’ Pagliarulo tweeted. Chicago’s Democrat Mayor Lori Lightfoot also emphatically condemned the server on Friday, calling her alleged actions “repugnant,” and adding “no one deserves that. No one.”
