Talk about civility in political discourse and we’re all on board. But something very strange, very sad is happening now. When we hear the vitriol and the venom that comes out of the mouths of the anti-Trumpers these days, it is unnerving, if not un-American.
Here we have President Trump’s press secretary, a Mom with three kids in tow, being booted from a dinky restaurant in Virginia over the weekend because the servers wouldn’t serve her because of the president’s policies.
Also, this past weekend, Secretary of Homeland Security and her husband were noisily heckled and asked to leave since her presence incensed the crowd at the bar. Ugly.
Then we have the emotionally-challenged U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, calling for more harassment of Trump staffers wherever they are. This is a California Democrat, whose credibility has taken a few nosedives in the past, but this is over the top. Waters said this afternoon at a press conference she is not asking for violence, just noisy protest aimed at Trump staffers presence – wherever the are. Nevertheless, Waters should know, it’s all harmful and not who we are.
Her rant backfired, no one liked what happened or what she said, including top Democrats Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Nancy Pelosi. More Democrats should take her to task and organize a retirement party, while they’re at it. -PW
