Eric Trump Gets Spiteful Reception At High-End Chicago Bar
Eric Trump decided to visit a high-end cocktail bar while he was visiting Chicago on Tuesday evening only to be spit on by an employee of the establishment.
The President’s son revealed the incident during an interview with conservative media outlet Breitbart News.
“It was purely a disgusting act by somebody who clearly has emotional problems,” Trump said. “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,” he added in an apparent shot at Democrats
According to NBC5 Chicago, the U.S. Secret Service took a woman into custody for questioning around 8:30 p.m. It is unclear if she is facing charges.
The spitting incident reportedly took place in a Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood at the Aviary.
