You would think now that marijuana is legal in Illinois that the Land of Lincoln would mellow out a bit, but no.
Earlier in the week, First Son Eric Trump was the target of a “resistance” minded miscreant who, while performing the duties of her restaurant job, spat on the the President’s offspring.
Of course, this isn’t the first case of restaurant-based harassment endured by Trump’s inner circle, with former White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders having been the victim of a wild, shouting mob that forced her to leave an eatery in Virginia some months ago.
But this latest reprehensible regurgitation of “resistance” rabble rousing comes to us from Chicago, where hateful vitriol has become all too common.
The Mayor of the Windy City is now speaking out.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot called “repugnant” an incident in which an employee at a restaurant in the city allegedly spat on Eric Trump, and urged city residents to show civility.
“Civility matters,” Democrat Lori Lightfoot said at a news conference Thursday. “We may not agree and, in my case, I don’t agree with a lot of the things that President Trump stands for. Our values are different. But you cross the line when you assault someone.”
“You absolutely cross the line when you intentionally target someone for that kind of treatment. No one deserves that. No one,” she continued.
“This is America. People have a right to have their views, no matter if we agree with them or not. But we cannot countenance people who go out of their way to express themselves in such a repugnant fashion.”
Lightfoot would go on to highlight Eric Trump’s “gracious” nature in regard to the fact that the President’s son has chosen not to press charges in the incident.
Chicago has been cast in a hateful pall of late, thanks to the hate crime hoax of actor Jussie Smollett, in which the actor is accused by Chicago PD of paying two on-set extras to perform a mock racial attack on the thespian. Smollett’s hope was that the added notoriety of victimhood would allow him to ask for a raise.
