‘Desperate’ Woman Allegedly Spits in Eric Trump’s Face – Then the Secret Service Shows Up

Secret Service agents arrested a Chicago restaurant employee on Tuesday evening after she spit in Eric Trump’s face.

“It was purely a disgusting act by somebody who clearly has emotional problems,” Trump told Breitbart News. “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.”

NBC Chicago reporter Mary Ann Ahern earlier reported the incident on Twitter, saying the location was the upscale Aviary cocktail bar. She shared a photo of police outside the establishment, and said that Secret Service had taken the employee into custody.

Sources told Breitbart that Trump – who is the president’s son and executive vice president of the Trump Organization – was at the bar with a group of people when a young female employee came up to him and spit in his face. An eye-witness said the woman murmured something that sounded anti-Trump, but the person could not be sure.

Secret Service agents, who were on hand protecting Trump, then moved in and handcuffed the woman before putting her in a police car. The first son declined to press charges, and the woman was released from police custody, Breitbart reported.

After the bar closed for the night, another Aviary employee confirmed the basic details of the incident to The Washington Post on condition of anonymity.

The Secret Service declined to comment. Anthony Guglielmi, a Chicago Police Department spokesman, said on Twitter that local officers assisted the Secret Service at the bar but would not elaborate.

Not just Eric: Trump supporters are used to being spit on

A number of Trump administration officials and other Republicans have recently faced public protests and harassment. Notable incidents have involved Sarah Sanders, Kellyanne Conway and Mitch McConnell.

Everyday supporters of the president have also been targeted. However, the stunts have often backfired on their perpetrators, as when last month a Maryland artist’s attempt at commentary on the supposed bigotry of the “Make America Great Again” hat got her banned by Facebook for “hate speech.”
