Eric Trump says he was spit on at Chicago restaurant

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



Eric Trump, son of President Donald Trump, said Tuesday he was spat on by an employee at a Chicago-area restaurant.


"It was purely a disgusting act by somebody who clearly has emotional problems," the President's third child  told conservative site Breitbart News  by phone Tuesday evening.


The Chicago Police Department was on the scene and assisted Secret Service, per CPD spokesman Anthony Guglielmi.


"CPD was on scene and assisting the United States Secret Service with a law enforcement matter. Any and all inquiries regarding a federal protectee must be directed to the Secret Service," Guglielmi  tweeted .


A United States Secret Service spokesperson declined to comment to CNN, and did not respond to inquiries on whether charges had been filed.



Eric Trump cast blame for the incident, which took place at upscale cocktail bar and restaurant Aviary, more broadly on the Democratic Party.


"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," he told Breitbart.


Trump, who, along with his brother, leads their father's real estate business, was in town for a  visit to Trump Hotel Chicago .


While this is the first such reported incident targeting Eric Trump, members of the Trump administration have previously faced confrontations at the dinner table. Press secretary Sarah Sanders  was asked to leave  a Lexington, Virginia, restaurant last June. And then-Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was  heckled by protesters  as she dined at a Mexican restaurant near the White House

So you believe this type of behavior is justified how exactly?

Assault by bodily fluid is just gross and no one deserves it.

I have never spit on anyone in my life and would never consider it, even for a Trump. 

"Justified" is in the eye of the beholder.  It is a dramatic action.

Not really...spitting is considered a criminal assault.

It is disgusting. Even if I hated someone (not something I tend to do) it would never cross my mind to spit on them. 

And it is assault.

Did you also find it "appalling" when other presidents' immediate family members were protected by Secret Service, or is your disgust reserved only for Trump?

  • The President of the United States
  • The Vice President of the United States
  • The President’s and Vice President’s immediate families
  • Former Presidents, their spouses and their minor children under the age of 16
  • Foreign heads of state and their spouses visiting the United States
  • Major presidential and vice presidential candidates and their spouses
  • Events designated as National Special Security Events by the Secretary, U.S. Department of Homeland Security

By the way, Obama changed the coverage during his presidency:

The official Secret Service website that I linked in comment 4.2 specifically states:

  • The President’s and Vice President’s immediate families

There are no age limits for a sitting POTUS' and VP's immediate families. Even Michelle Obama's mother had Secret Service protection. By the way, Eric Trump is 35, not 40. Good try.

The End.

He is a scumbag that we are paying to protect as he runs around the world running daddy's company.

Obama's mother actually stayed in the WH to look after their underage children.

Hear that? I can have an opinion on it and I will post it.

Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Reagan, GHWB, GWB...weren't all their kids grown?

not 40 year old men that could well afford it on their own.

Being "in school" has no relevance to Secret Service protection. Malia Obama was 18+ while her father was still POTUS and had SS protection. To my knowledge, no one had a problem with this. Next.

Yes.  Those were the examples of presidents with underage kids.  You forgot about Amy Carter, BTW.

Bush twins were underage....

They were 19.

So the majority of presidents had grown kids.  All of whom got Secret Service protection.

You neglected to define "underage". In 47 US states, 18 is the legal age of majority (emancipation/adult status).

It appears that we have members on this site who no longer give a shit about their kids once they reach the age of majority.  Personally, I would be as devastated and terrified if my kids who are now 44 and 40 were to be kidnapped as I would have been when they were 4 or 14.  You don't have to imagine the position a POTUS would be in if his/her kid, 4, or 14, or 40 were to be kidnapped and certain political demands were made on the POTUS in order for the kid to survive.  I think it was well explained by Jeb Bartlett (Martin Sheen) in  the West Wing TV series, when his daughter wanted more freedom.  Hopefully you can open this:

Did you watch The West Wing TV series?  It was during an episode when the President's daughter complained about the restrictions she was bound to, and the requirement of always being accompanied by the Secret Service.  The POTUS explains to her what would happen if in fact she was kidnapped and then the POTUS given the choice of her death or the POTUS having to do some horrible political thing like demand that the Prime Minister of Israel release all the terrorist prisoners in the Israeli jails. In fact in another episode she DOES get kidnapped.

There were many 'deplorables' that hated Hillary...nobody spit on Chelsea. Shall we wait until the Obama girls grow up a little and spit on them to show disdain for their father, or do we even need to wait?

Some statements in the article are :

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 those people wrong who are praising this as an act of civil disobedience.

And there is go-fundme page set up for the waitress :

Meanwhile, a GoFundMe page has been set up by a friend of the waitress to help with any expenses she may have after being suspended including any possible legal fees.

No person should be spat on. About the only good thing out of this is that it seems everybody is working to keep the identity of the waitress out of the press, which helps to control/eliminate the inevitable death threats that would come out.  I would hope that everybody could agree that death threats are as wrong as assault and should not be tolerated by any political party.
