Eric Trump, the US President Donald Trump’s son, said that an employee at a Chicago cocktail bar spit on him Tuesday night, HuffPost reported Thursday.
“It was purely a disgusting act by somebody who clearly has emotional problems,” Eric Trump told the reporters.
According to the report, Trump was having dinner when a waitress came up and spit on him, however, Trump decided not to press charges, even though the woman was detained by the US Secret Service.
The bar administration called the incident “unfortunate,” and claimed that “no customer should ever be spit on.”
“The online discussion about the incident is troubling. 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. We have voices and the means to be heard. A degrading act lowers the tenor of debate. To some it might feel good, but it is unlikely to serve any larger purpose. We hope this incident can, at least, serve to illuminate the current absurdity of the discourse in our politics.”
Eric Trump commented on the matter by saying that “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.”
The waitress has been reportedly put on leave.
