A Chicago woman was arrested for spitting on Eric Trump at a fancy bar

Eric Trump oversees construction on the new Trump Tower in Punta del Este

I would never say that anyone should physically assault anyone in the Trump family. Please feel free to talk sh-t about them, to protest everything about them, to accurately quote them, to point out their insanity and vulgarity. If you are in the service industry, feel free to refuse to service any and all Trumps. But do not physically assault them. And do not spit on them. That is my public service announcement. That being said, I also sort of want to donate some money to the legal defense fund of a Chicago waitress who apparently SPIT on Eric Trump aka The Other White Nazi Meat.

Eric Trump, the son of President Donald Trump, reportedly was spat on as he visited a popular upscale bar in Chicago Tuesday night during his visit to the city, according to published reports. A female employee of The Aviary, 955 W. Fulton Market in West Town, is said to have been taken into custody after she spat upon Trump. He has been in Chicago and staying at the Trump Hotel, according to his Twitter account.

Trump confirmed the incident to the conservative news website Breitbart, telling the news outlet, “It was purely a disgusting act by somebody who clearly has emotional problems.”

NBC reporter Mary Ann Ahern first tweeted about the incident Tuesday night, saying Eric Trump was seen leaving The Aviary. The upscale, James Beard-winning bar is owned in part by the duo behind one of the world’s most influential restaurants, Alinea. Co-owner Nick Kokonas previously made headlines in another Trump-related matter when he invited the Clemson Tigers football team to a dinner at the restaurant after they’d famously been served fast food at the White House.

Secret Service officials did not immediately confirm the incident, but Chicago police noted an incident at The Aviary and directed inquiries to the Secret Service.

You know what’s also a disgusting act by someone who clearly has emotional problems? Refusing to give children soap or toothpaste in the concentration camps on the border. Refusing to even allow private citizens to DONATE soap and toothpaste to children being held in cages on American soil. Was spitting on Eric Trump necessary? No, it wasn’t. But it’s also not the most disgusting thing that’s happened in the past week. I do hope someone finds out this lady’s name so that she can get free drinks, free lawyers and a book deal for her trouble though.

    He’s deplorable but that’s gross

    • CA Family Code says:

      I have lost it with people in the past. When I did it I was drunk, a lot younger and spit on the ground while walking by them and looking at them. I regret it. I always try to stay in the frame of mind that lowering my personal ethics and standards to that level only makes me like them. This man is a seriously deluded monster. What I see when I see him is a monster posing by majestic animals he has killed. I make sure people I know who support his family get a copy of that image, but beyond that all I see is a NOBODY WHO IS DISCONNECTED FROM THE FAMILY OF MAN.

    • Deedee says:

      Yes, they should have spat in his drink.

    • charo says:

      A Trump claims he was spat upon but we have no evidence of what actually happened. Spitting is gross but I woldn’t believe a Trump about anything so I’d like witnesses and evidence.

    • FoundCat says:

      Eric trump posed holding a severed elephants tail. I would have an hard time NOT spitting in or at- not saying I would- IJS

    • Giddy says:

      Yes, it’s extremely gross. If someone spat on me I would feel justified in at least running over them with a tank. But…he is a Trump and I have no pity. I’m not sorry.

    • buensenso says:

      this story is ridiculous…somebody spitting on people for not liking their politics is disgusting. but also, getting arrested for having spat on somebody is stupid.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        well, it’s a LOT more than just not liking his politics.

        if you’ve been following this admin, and this horrible criminal family, you’d understand what disgusting people they are.

        Eric Trump STOLE FROM A CHARITY HE SET UP FOR CHILDREN WITH CANCER. that’s the kind of person who deserves to be spit on.

      • insertpunhere says:

        This isn’t politics. The hatred of the Trump administration isn’t politics. It is political for us to disagree about how tax dollars are spent or the student debt problem. Concentration camps are not political. Trying to bring down the free press is not political. Covering for (and engaging in) criminal activity in order to thwart the democratic process is not political.

        I am so sick of people saying it’s political. It’s not. It’s personal to me and a lot of people. It’s personal to the women at the border who lost their wanted pregnancies because they were denied medical care. It’s personal to the families who have been separated and lost their children FOREVER because they sought asylum (a legal process). It is personal to the trans students who are not safe in schools and the children stuck in foster care who could be provided permanency by LGBTQ families and the people who can’t see their families because the family members live in “Muslim countries.”

        This is not political, and it is the height of privilege to say that it is. I am not condoning spitting on a Trump, but I understand the impotent rage that people are feeling right now, and I honestly don’t know how I’d respond if I ran into someone from this administration while out and about.

      • Lua says:

        Actually spitting on someone is battery, so not stupid. In line with the law. She’s lucky he’s not pressing charges.

  2. Megan says:

    I don’t get how these people can show their faces in public. They are torturing children. CHILDREN.

    • Elkie says:

      Pish, we all know only white kids count. And then only from conception until birth. The Deplorables don’t even care about their OWN children enough to vote for affordable healthcare, education & housing, union-protected jobs, breathable air or drinkable water.

      And while I don’t condone spitting, I do think it’s funny that Eric clearly doesn’t realise he’s been eating foreign spit and faecal matter every other time he went to a dozens-of-health-code-violations-having Trump restaurant for the last twenty years.

      • Megan says:

        Apparently owning the libs is more valuable than all of those things.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        and if he thinks he’s not CURRENTLY getting food with spit and who-knows-what-else in it, he’s delusional.

        to be clear (and to paraphrase Chris Rock), I ain’t saying she should have spit on him…but I understand.

      • olliesmom says:

        The only way to get these people’s attention is to unfortunately stoop down to their level and in this case it was with spit. That got his attention. They don’t get the “when they go low – we go high” thing. That’s not obvious enough for them.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        olliesmom YES!

    • Tiffany :) says:

      Yes, spit seems like such minor thing in comparison to keeping prematurely born 4 day old babies in a detention center!

      Sorry, Eric, I have no compassion left in my soul for your sorry ass. It’s all being directed at the people who are TRULY suffering under this regime.

  3. Krakken says:

    Worth it.

  4. Still_Sarah says:

    I went over to Fox News to see if they had a story on the Salvadorean father and baby who drowned trying to cross into the US (surprise : they didn’t) and saw this story on Eric Trump. They are blowing it up as a sign the “left” is heartless and fake about caring for people. Honestly you have to understand that the people who watch stuff like Fox News just aren’t getting the same “news” as you are.

    • Jerusha says:

      Of course they’d say nothing about the father and his daughter-you can tell from the photos that their skin is brown. If they did say something their cultists’ response would be, “Their own fault, shouldn’t have been trying to get into OUR country(that we stole from the indigenous people).

    • sassafras says:

      I go to a gym where CNN and Fox News are on side by side and seeing the way stories are spun on both screens is really illuminating. On Fox, they show hordes of people scrambling and swarming at the border. On CNN, they show crying children being carried off by uniformed men.

  5. Mignionette says:

    “SHERO”.

  6. Becks1 says:

    “he’s not my type” is the best response.

    yeah…..violence isn’t okay, spitting on someone is disgusting, yada yada yada.

    That said, I’m sure she wont have any problems paying her legal bills.

  7. Aims says:

    While I condone assault of any kind, I do understand being so mad that you lose your shit. Having a blind moment of rage that you just lose it. I agree that we need to do everything to counter Trump and that includes helping this woman. Even if you understandably disagree with her action. That being said, never in my life time have I’ve seen such a primal rage towards this family. It is visceral and completely warranted and justified.

  8. elimaeby says:

    Can the Trumps just stay tf out of my city? I was walking near my office in The Loop a few months back and stopped at a crosswalk only to find myself shoulder-to-shoulder with Don Jr. I’m not gonna lie, I had some thoughts about things I wanted to do to f**k his day up. Luckily the light changed before I could get myself in trouble.

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      Oooh girrrl. I work in downtown Chicago not far from that monstrosity of a Trump building. And if I EVER saw any of those MFers… me and God would have to have a long talk.

    • minx says:

      Chicagoan here, too. And yeah, stay away.

      • Alex says:

        I flip off that architectural monstrosity every time that I cross the river. Bring back the Sun Times building.

      • minx says:

        I worked at the Sun-Times in the late 70s, as did my husband. We used to laugh at the building and called the Roach Motel, but now we said we would gladly take it back instead of that hotel with its obnoxiously large lettering.

    • Trashaddict says:

      We keep trying to explain that they are just not welcome here, but the T-rumps don’t get the message. Mind you, these are the folks who couldn’t do simple arithmetic on the Howard Stern show…..

  9. Insomniac says:

    That was a waste of perfectly good saliva, IMO.

  10. Lightpurple says:

    It is also disgusting how Eric and his ilk try to portray anyone who doesn’t worship them as mentally ill.

  11. OriginalLala says:

    Spitting on someone is gross but I honestly can’t say how I would react if I had to serve a Trump as a waitress…they are literal garbage

    • It’sJustBlanche says:

      Garbage but the passive aggressive “ooops dropped a plate of food on you” route is probably better.

  12. CAVandy says:

    While I don’t condone this act per se, I have to say “you’re welcome, America,” for being a city that consistently treats the Trumps like they deserve. As far as I am concerned they should be shunned until the end of their days.

    Also, the Aviary is awesome and anyone who visits here should go there.

  13. otaku fairy... says:

    Aww, of course he cried to Breitbart about it.

  14. Jerusha says:

    I hope that in some restaurant he’s been served a slice of Minnie’s pie. Also, if I were a trump, I’d never order anything to drink except bottled water. Know what I mean?😉😉

  15. Mia4s says:

    I wouldn’t spit on Eric Trump….if he were on fire. 😎

  16. Tate says:

    Does she need bail money?

  17. lowercaselila says:

    My thoughts and prayers to Eric Trump during this difficult time for him. Actually, I am surprised he goes out in Public in Chicago, considering the Mayor and city council told Daddy Trump he wasn’t welcomed in Chicago. Chicago is also taken Trump to court on some various matters. The Trump children live in their own reality.

  18. launicaangelina says:

    Normally, I would agree about not assaulting people, but the Trumps and this administration are not humans. PERIOD. We are in 2019 and the USA has fucking concentration camps! This is pure evil.

    My dad came to the USA when he was 16 years old as an undocumented immigrant. He was escaping an abusive father and poverty. He heard they the US was the land of opportunity and had to see for himself. He had only 1 year of education and could speak, read, or write English.

    After being in the States for about 6-7 years, he was found working on a ranch and deported. Mom helped him get his paperwork in order so he could come back to us. He’s a successful business owner and now a Citizen. There was nothing as evil as what is going on now then. This is personal for me, but no matter what, this is evil and everyone should care.

    In summary, I don’t give a shit that someone spit on him. He gets to go home and take a nice, warm shower to clean the spit off.

    • olliesmom says:

      Your pride in your dad is coming through loud and clear in your post. Your dad is an American success story, launicaangelina. He is what America is all about. Hard work, determination and never giving up on your dreams even if “the man” wants to slap you down at every turn. That’s the thing with these idiots – they don’t have any idea of the potential in the people that they are turning away at the border or holding in camps or deporting. And we ALL lose out on that potential.

    • Trashaddict says:

      I respect your dad, and you for knowing your roots and knowing how this country SHOULD be. Not forgetting it. Of course it’s just a sign of Trump’s larger memory loss about the truth.

  19. Lala11_7 says:

    I cannot say what I would like to say…

    But I will say this…

    Upon reading the story…I have never been more proud to be….

    From Chicago

  20. Coco Puffs says:

    Some random once sneezed on my face (because some people don’t know to cover their face) it was traumatising, I really wouldn’t wish it on anyone. let alone being spit on deliberately, use your words

    • Jerusha says:

      But you, unlike the trumps, haven’t been raping and pillaging our country. They are, through their appointments, systematically destroying public education, the environment, safety nets for the disadvantaged, and so on and so on, while enriching themselves. Personally, I hope someone took a piss in his drink.

  21. blinkers says:

    What really gets me about this is that our system is soooo Broken that spitting on him was the most powerful way for her to convey disgust at what’s happening in our country!

    Yes, don’t physically assult folks. But yeah, ostracizing individuals who are doing great great harm to our community/country… that is powerful and I think important.

  22. Evie says:

    First thing’s first: The Secret Service did arrest her but Eric Trump elected not to press charges. So I’m not sure you’ll need to donate to a legal defense fund for this woman. Stay tuned.

    I can’t stand Eric, Don, Jr. or Ivanka. Especially the boys for their horrific trophy hunting, among other things. On a visceral level, I understand the compulsion to go on the attack. These are dangerous times. We cannot condone physical assault in any form, no matter how much we believe it’s warranted. This is a very slippery slope. Once someone resorts to violence, you only invite reprisal and it escalates from there. No one wins in these situations.

    • Giddy says:

      I went on Twitter to see what was being said. There were some very funny things, but there were also the pictures of Eric with a gorgeous dead leopard draped on his shoulder, as if that made him more of a man. Seeing that makes it hard for me to care about Eric or his killer brother. I don’t condone violence, but I don’t mind embarrassment.

    • Trashaddict says:

      People are dying at the border. Should we be polite about that?

  23. Anne Call says:

    I love that for the rest of their lives, the trump family will be shunned and hopefully harassed in any blue city they go to. I can only imagine what goes on in restaurant kitchens in NYC when a trump family member shows up.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      They were pretty much shunned by EVERYONE in NYC – that is how hated the Trump name is, it goes way back to his father.

  24. Lizzie says:

    1) that’s gross and if someone spit in my face i too would want them arrested….but…but…
    2) how does he know she has emotional problems? all bitches be crazy right?
    3) what did he say to her during his outing to a restaurant in competition with the one in the trump hotel with an owner who has publicly expressed he is anti-trump? i’m very very curious about this. i sincerely doubt he was just sitting at the bar, minding his own business when a bartender walked up and hocked a lugie on him.

    maybe breitbart has more details but i would rather die than give them a click.

  25. Jan says:

    It’s like punching a nazi. He deserves it. Every single trump participating in this administration deserves it. No sympathy for nazis

  26. lobstah says:

    NOT a Trump supporter, but this makes me cringe. Why sink to their level with physical attacks when it’s so easy to hurt their fragile egos. Act like you don’t know who he is, tell him someone important needs his table (bonus points if it’s Pete Buttigieg!), accidentally spill something all over him. I am not above passive aggressive takedowns. :)

    • whatWHAT? says:

      the “accidental” spill is the best thing to do, IMO. plausible deniability.

      re: pretending not to know who he is…I had the opportunity to do just that to a horrible right-wing US congressman from my state. all of them have to maintain an address in their home districts, and I wound up renting the apartment he did, just after he was voted out of office and gave up his lease. he was there, moving out when I showed up to see the space. he said, “oh, did (the landlady) charge you more because you’re renting the apartment where a famous person lived?” I said “OOOO! what famous person lived here?” full well knowing who he was. the look on his face was PRICELESS. he was clearly hurt and insulted, and I loved it.

    • WingKingdom says:

      “Tell him someone important needs his table”

      Ahahahahahaaa! That would be delicious.

      Also delicious, WhatWhat?’s amazing and enviable story. How satisfying.

  27. Alex says:

    GoFundMe page, please.

  28. Faithmobile says:

    I get it. He has a very spit-able face.

  29. Lightpurple says:

    Welcome to Celebitchy, Anthony. Will you be sticking around and adding your incites on discussions of Tom Hiddleston’s work promoting diversity in BAFTA, Judi Dench’s ruminations on the art of predators, and Kim Kardashian’s cultural appropriation for her shapewear line or are you just here to defend Eric, the spawn of Orange Voldemort, or Doyle, as I like to call him, by attacking the Obamas, who have nothing to do with any of this?

    • Jerusha says:

      Yeah, I responded to Anthony’s idiotic post, but his was deleted and mine along with it. Basically, I just laughed at him.

      • Lightpurple says:

        I seriously believe the Trumps actually pay people to defend them on the internet with rubbish like that. The people screaming “jealous” on every article about Ivanka’s business dealings are particularly telling

      • North of Boston says:

        Sometimes I wonder if it is one the them, and not one of their minions, because they really don’t have anything better to do than to lurk around the internet posting their thin skinned whiny comments about how they are the *actual victims* of this that or the other thing.

        But I’m not really sure any trump besides Tiffany could successfully operate any device coherently enough to successfully post anywhere. So it must just be paid (or volunteer) dupes.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      I like to call him Quasay, suits him better. Jr is Uday and Ivanka is Nag (I shortened your nickname for her – seems to fit better).

  30. Louise says:

    That’s the least he deserves. He’s a shit “human being.”

    • Kitten says:

      Yeah exactly. I appreciate that people are trying to be fair and all but these monsters don’t deserve fairness.

  31. Spicecake38 says:

    She should be locked up for a couple of days…In the most absolutely amazing,swanky,high end hotel in Chicago-and be given the best spa treatments,champagne,fine dining,the works,and send her bill to Trump.🥂

  32. kerwood says:

    What she did was disgusting but I can’t understand how more people aren’t moved to spit whenever they lay eyes on one of these loathsome people. She probably should have spit on the ground as a way of expressing her disgust with this creature.

  33. Murphy says:

    Thank you for your service Ma’am.

  34. JanetFerber says:

    Give the lady a frigging gold medal for patriotism. The evil empire must be destroyed.

  35. Ann says:

    I dream of hocking a loogy right in McConnell face but he’s interchangeable with any Trump (minus Baron). I wholeheartedly approve of this tactic and hope it continues. I’ve already told my dad to set aside the bail money just incase one of those F’ers makes their way to my side of the country, which could happen because I live about an hour from one of the concentrating camps. Fingers crossed.

  36. Mtec says:

    Is anyone crowdfunding her bail? Where can I donate?

  37. Fluffy Princess says:

    I would have gone the spilled drink route — a nice big glass of burgundy wine. . .but I understand why she did it.

    No sympathy for that cretin. Get used to it Eric, because if there is any justice, you will have to deal with this constantly.

  38. ChillyWilly says:

    This POS deserves worse than being spat on. If I were a Trump, I would never eat out for fear of being served “chocolate” pie a la The Help.

  39. Kate says:

    He deserved it.

  40. Daffodil says:

    So a private citizen spits on another private citizen, and it’s the SECRET SERVICE getting involved, not Chicago PD? What public need is there for the Secret Service to protect the second citizen in that case? He’s supposed to be enough of a private citizen to be managing DJT’s businesses without running afoul of the emoluments clause, after all.

    • JRenee says:

      This^^^, why do they have secret service??

      • Humbugged says:

        Because they are the children of the President (whether you like him or not) .

        All children of all President’s (adult or not) get a detail from here till eternity .

      • whatWHAT? says:

        because (legally) they’re entitled to it and it makes them feel special.

        they can absolutely refuse it, but they live for being “MORE” than everyone around them, and having their own personal protection makes them feel like they’re better than the masses.

        to boot, I’d be willing to bet that people would do a LOT worse than spit if there were no protection around them.

      • Cay says:

        @humbugged: Unless Trump has changed this lately, this is not the law. The law says that current/former POTUS and FLOTUS are their (non-adult) children must have secret service.

        “According to federal law, the Secret Service is authorized to protect the sitting U.S. president and vice president (or the next-in-line for the presidency), their immediate families, and all former U.S. presidents and their spouses, as well as their children under age 16. While in office, neither the president nor the vice president can decline Secret Service protection, but their spouses and adult children can.”

        We, the taxpayers, are paying for a service they do not need but choose to have. This is yet another way they are gouging the taxpayers. They could choose to have a private security detail paid for by their company/organization/corporation, but they have declined that and have chosen instead to burden the taxpayer with this bill.

  41. Cindy says:

    It’s not that he didn’t deserve it, but spitting on someone who doesn’t even know you is undeniably rude and unfair. My problem is not that Eric was disrespected, but that the right LOVES when things like this happen because it validates their martyr complex. That’s why I don’t like when people resort to things like this. There’s more civilized, subtle ways to ruin their days. This waitress didn’t ruin his day at all. She just threw a party to every poster of an alt-right forum.

    • Carol says:

      @cindy. I completely agree with you. Lets get back at that family by making sure that Trump is not re-elected. Argue points, volunteer to make sure younger voters vote, etc. Yes, they all deserve to be spit at but that won’t change anything. It would just make anti-trumpers look just as crazy as the right wingers. I would have loved to spit at the stupid driver that almost ran into me but what would that accomplish? I refuse to change the way I live by the vapid, ignorant, Trump and his followers. They are gross. We should not be.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      ya know Cindy, normally I’d agree with you, but these are different times.

      the entire 45 admin is “rude and unfair”. the GOP has been “rude and unfair” for decades, and they expect the Dems to be the party of civility. Dems have been bringing a bunch of outraged feelings to a gun fight, never mind a knife. well, the GOP can FRO. and it’s what I’d say to any of them who are all “but what happened to civility?! going high?!”…GO CLUTCH YOUR F*CKING PEARLS SOMEWHERE ELSE. (please understand that outburst is not directed at you!) the dems need to give back everything they’re getting and stop rolling over so they can be perceived as having the moral ground. block nominees, block legislation, fight dirty like the GOP does. it’s the ONLY thing that they get, the ONLY thing that will change things.

      and yes, spitting on a man who stole money from a charity he set up for children with cancer is A-OK in my book. he’s a disgusting human being and should be treated like one, son of the *president or no.

  42. Chanteloup says:

    I dunno – where else was she supposed to spit? I was raised, if you’ve gotta spit, spit in the garbage. I’d say she had pretty good aim.

  43. tw says:

    Sorry, but I do condone this behavior. I would spit on Nazi’s, too.

  44. savu says:

    Let’s be real, Don Jr. would’ve deserved it more than Eric.

  45. virginfangirls says:

    I am of the opinion that violence is justified sometimes. Nazi’s deserve and should be spit on.

  46. kerwood says:

    As the poster above who quoted Chris Rock, I understand why this woman did what she did. The Trump family is profiting from 45′s administration, which means that his children are co-conspirators.

    Some day, hopefully soon, Americans are going to have to consider what they did while their President was torturing children, using the Constitution as toilet paper and plotting with foreign powers. This woman will have a clear conscience. What she did was disgusting, but she did SOMETHING.

    • North of Boston says:

      Spitting on Nazi’s AND voting, plus volunteering time/donating to the Democratic candidate and democracy supporting causes of your choice – we are all capable of multi-tasking , I suspect. The future of country is depending on it.

  47. Christine says:

    Someone should start a go fund me for the perpetrators!

  48. Ctgirl says:

    People who behave in such a manner, such as spitting on someone, are no better than pigs at the trough. Such behavior has no place in a civilized society.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      no place in civilized society, you say?…

      nor does taking FOUR-DAY OLD children from their parents and putting them in cages with no blankets.

      nor does withholding soap and toothbrushes from detainees, and making children care for children because they were taken from their parents.

      nor does stealing money from a charity that you set up for children with cancer.

      nor does mocking disabled people.

      nor does the *president insulting people all day every day. (or, you know, RAPING them.)

      there are a LOT of things this admin does that have no place in civilized society.

      go clutch your pearls somewhere else.

      • virginfangirls says:

        Hear hear!

      • CTgirl says:

        None of those things belong in a civilized society. But at some point, someone needs to make the declaration that they won’t engage in such behavior. Only after you reject such behavior do you have the moral high ground to demand that people on the other side of the fence stop their terrible behavior. Otherwise it’s just a bunch of people on different sides spitting on each other and nothing gets resolved. Someone else’s bad behavior doesn’t justify your own bad behavior.

      • otaku fairy... says:

        “But at some point, someone needs to make the declaration that they won’t engage in such behavior. Only after you reject such behavior do you have the moral high ground to demand that people on the other side of the fence stop their terrible behavior.”

        Cool, so let’s place that onus on everyone playing a part in the Trump administration first, instead of always putting it on the victims of the deplorable agenda.

        I agree, whatwhat?. It’s relative and contextual. I’m not condoning spitting or any sort of illegal behaviour but her motivations are not exactly free of context. When I saw these brothers, with big grins plastered all over their faces, posing with dead animals, some endangered, I felt horrible for the animals, a pit of dread and despair for humanity.

        “But at some point, someone needs to make the declaration that they won’t engage in such behavior. Only after you reject such behavior do you have the moral high ground to demand that people on the other side of the fence stop their terrible behavior.”

        and the dems have been rejecting that behavior for DECADES, and demanding that the GOP stop their terrible behavior.

        and where has that gotten us? the dems keep rolling over the GOP keeps behaving terribly because they know the dems won’t say BOO.

        as noted by otaku, the onus is in the trumpers to put a stop to their behavior. and they won’t. ever. so, the time has come.

        your stance is like this: you have child A who consistently bullies and hits child B. B never hits back but simply says, “I reject this behavior. please don’t hit me, it’s wrong”. A continues to bully and hit. B continues with the “moral high ground”, politely asking A to stop. A doesn’t stop. so, at the end of their rope, B finally hits A back. then the teacher steps in and says “B, you shouldn’t hit A. take the high ground and demand A stop hitting you.” you’re the teacher in this scenario, in case you didn’t grasp that.

        the English didn’t take the revolutionaries seriously until they started killing them. but I guess they should have just waited until the English stopped behaving badly, right? continued to try to engage in polite discourse? GTFO here with that BS.

        Both The Dems and the GOP play the game of your bad behavior condones my bad behavior. If one side would stop then the other side is playing alone and then people would begin to engage in civil discourse – and hopefully come to agreement on some issues.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        oh, so now we’ve reached the “both sides do it” part of your “argument”.

        just like there are “good people on both sides” of the Nazi/NON-Nazi feud, right?

        your idea sounds great and all but as I’ve repeatedly pointed out, it’s not based in reality. but I think you know that, and are just trying to defend the indefensible. the dems have repeatedly tried to engage in civil discourse and the GOP just blows everything up.

        Only one “side” drove their car into a bunch of peaceful protesters and killed someone. only one “side” has rallies where they say “the jews won’t replace us”. only one “side” has their leader encouraging people to be “roughed up” and “taken out on a stretcher” at his campaign rallies. only one “side” has their leader mocking disabled people. only one “side” has offspring of the president who STEAL FROM CHARITIES. only one “side” is separating days-old babies from their parents. only one “side” is making CHILDREN SLEEP IN CAGES ON CONCRETE FLOORS WITH NO BLANKETS.

        like I said, go clutch your pearls somewhere else, because no one is buying what you’re selling.

    Obviously she wanted it known that she spit on him. It was an open protest. If she had just wanted to be mean, she would have spit in is food or drink.

    Momma taught me that two wrongs don’t make a right.

    Eric Trump is a prick but you shouldn’t go around spitting on people.

    It is disgusting, but his wife then said it was a democrat thing and no republican would have spat at the Obama or Clinton kids and it irritated me. They were Kids, not some spoiled man-child who sticks his nose in politically, forces his way into the state visit the Queen was obliged to give his disgusting, pathetic father, and is almost certainly milking his position and filling his pockets. Even so, don’t spit, just make sure all the finances are investigated and, hopefully, send the lot of them to prison.
