The Daily Beast reports:
President Donald Trump’s son Eric says he was spit on by an employee at the Aviary, a cocktail bar in Chicago, on Tuesday night. The employee was taken into Secret Service custody but was later released. “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.”
NBC5 Chicago reported that U.S. Secret Service took a woman into custody for questioning around 8:30 p.m. It is unclear if she is facing charges. Anthony Guglielmi with the Chicago Police Department confirmed that officers were on scene assisting with the federal authorities.
The lounge’s co-owner, Nick Kokonas, made headlines earlier this year when he invited the college football national champion Clemson University Tigers to experience “what an actual celebration dinner should be” after President Trump served the players fast food at the White House.
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. https://t.co/ecq5TaMiQ0
