Luckily for the President’s Son, Trump Derangement Syndrome Isn’t Contagious
“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.” – Eric Trump
Last Tuesday, President Trump’s second-eldest son Eric was spat upon in Chicago’s The Aviary cocktail lounge, an establishment that was considered to be high-class until the incident. The Aviary, which is located at 955 W. Fulton Market in the Windy City’s upscale West Loop neighborhood, is owned by the Alinea Group, and they used to be known for their sophisticated cocktails. Now they are known as a low-class bar where servers commit assaults on customers and they aren’t even fired for their crimes.
Of the incident, Eric Trump told Breitbart News it was a “disgusting act by somebody who clearly has emotional problems.” Trump, who is a very nice person, was too nice to point out the obvious, which is that the server also has intellectual problems. The server was immediately arrested by members of the Secret Service, who she was not smart enough to realize could and would arrest her. Trump was also too nice to press charges, which is the only reason his server is not currently known by her inmate number.
Is Spitting a Crime in Chicago?
In Illinois, you do not have to physically come into contact with another person to be charged with battery. Spitting is considered to be battery, and when you deliberately spit on someone in the state you can and should be arrested. Spitting on someone else is a health hazard. Our saliva can contain a wide variety of infections and diseases, including norovirus, rhinovirus, meningitis, and HIV. These diseases can be transmitted through saliva, and Eric Trump did not consent to sharing bodily fluids with this woman, whose identity is being protected for some unknown reason.
Former Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and her family and former Director of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen were ejected from restaurants. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao were attacked by a melting snowflake at a fast food establishment. Republican Senator Ted Cruz was forced out of a restaurant by an angry and potentially violent mob. Senior Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway was physically assaulted in another restaurant. So it’s escalated from threats to attacks to potential disease warfare, all in the name of making Liberals look impressive to other Liberals online. Because that’s what we’re really talking about here. It’s become a literal spitting contest, and we’re all losing.
To her credit, the new Democrat Mayor of Chicago, Lori Lightfoot, has condemned the server’s actions against President Trump’s son and called for her firing. Unbelievably, so far the low-class waitress has only been suspended. Lightfoot called the incident “repugnant,” and said, “No one deserves that. No one.” The Mayor also acknowledged that it was “very gracious” of Eric Trump to not press charges over the attack, which she described as not about politics, but about civility.
Predictably, Liberals are using the attack against Eric Trump to get more attention for themselves online by praising the server, volunteering to spit on Trump themselves, and generally encouraging and inciting violence. Stephanie Wilkinson, the owner of the restaurant that threw Sarah Sanders out, was even given more press time. The should-be disgraced restaurant owner said, “No one in the industry condones the physical assault of a patron,” but she then went on to condone it. The hypocrite claimed that “the rules have shifted,” making it now acceptable to attack innocent diners if they don’t share your political views.
What does The Aviary have to say about the incident? In their official statement the owners called the online discussion about the attack “troubling.” The statement went on to say:
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 these 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.
As Americans, we are trying to aim higher. That is why we elected President Trump. With our votes we committed to making America great again, and now we have to honestly ask ourselves if a cocktail lounge that would not fire an employee who attacked a diner is a part of that. Some Chicago restaurants, also for publicity, have offered to hire this server if she is fired from The Aviary. Hopefully her identity is revealed so diners will be able to choose whether or not to frequent any establishment that would have her. After all, if she’d spit on the president’s son, what makes you think she won’t spit in your food next?
Lara Trump has something to say about the disgusting server who spit on her husband.
