Violent Trump Supporter Calls C-Span, Suggests Arson For Restaurant That Banned Sarah Sanders

 

Many Trump supporters have shown themselves to prone to violence. After all, no one can forget the infamous videos from the 2016 campaign where they routinely beat up peaceful protesters – often with Donald Trump himself egging them on. Well, now that we are well into this disgraceful “administration,” these people are showing that they are willing to direct their violence at anyone who dares to stand up to the authoritarianism coming out of the White House. Case in point – a C-Span called who actually suggested that Red Hen, the restaurant that kicked White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders out, should be burned down.

On Monday, during C-Span’s Washington Journal program, host Pedro Echevarria was very interested to have his listeners weigh in on how private businesses are standing up to members of the Trump Administration – specifically the Red Hen incident. One caller, a gentleman named Frank, said:

“Ms. Sanders should be very happy that she was asked to leave, because some fool in the kitchen would have probably spit in her food.”

Echevarria pressed Frank, though, asking:

“What did you think about her being asked to leave in the first place?”

Frank answered:

“Like I said, I think she should be happy. You’ve got stupid garden implements like the woman that owns [the Red Hen] and like [California Democratic Congresswoman] Maxine Waters. It’s crazy that people like that are ever put in any kind of authority.”

Then, Frank became positively violent:

“Please keep us informed on what happens to that restaurant in case somebody decides to burn it down for her.”

This is a clear suggestion of violence, all because this woman exercised her right to serve – or not serve – whomever she pleases. Further, we’ve seen the result of such suggestions in the past, such as the man who believed the “pizzagate” conspiracy theory and took up arms to go and try and shoot up a Washington, D.C. pizza parlor – all because of something he read online.

All I can say is that I hope that the feds have tabs on this gentleman – and if something happens at Red Hen, the authorities should pay him a visit.

SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh said he would ‘put the nail’ in independent counsel ruling

In a 2016 video, Judge Kavanaugh argued that he would overturn Morrison v. Olson, a Supreme Court ruling that underpins the appointment of independent counsels. The ruling largely fell out of favor after Ken Starr’s turn in the Clinton era. As FiveThirtyEight’s Nate Silver points out, however, Kavanaugh volunteered the example by himself, revealing something about his views on Supreme Court precedent.

Sarah Sanders: We’re working on “bold reforms” to stop Russian election interference

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said the Trump administration is working on “bold reforms” to ensure Russian interference in US elections never happens again.

Sanders was asked if Trump sees Russian meddling in the 2016 election as “an attack on democracy.”

The President has faced continued furor over his remarks about election meddling made alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday in Helsinki.

Here’s what Sanders said today:

The President thinks that we have to focus on securing our election integrity and our election systems, which is why he has spent so much time with his administration making sure that this doesn’t happen again. Let’s not forget this didn’t happen under President Trump’s watch. This happened under the Obama administration. We’re taking steps, we’re making bold reforms to try to fix this and make sure it never happens again.

Here’s what the White House says Trump and Putin talked about in their private meeting

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders listed a number of topics that were included in President Trump’s private one-on-one meeting with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.

Sanders listed Syrian humanitarian aid, Israeli security, North Korea, denuclearization, Ukraine and the occupation of Crimea, reducing Russian and US nuclear arsenals, and “your favorite topic” Russian interference in elections.

Sanders said the meeting reflected the “beginning of the dialogue with Russia and our administration and theirs and we’re going to continue working through those things.”

Sanders also said Putin’s proposal of having Russian prosecutors question US officials, including former US ambassador to Russia Mike McFaul, arose in Trump’s meeting, but she said no agreements were reached.

“He said it was an interesting idea. He didn’t commit to anything,” Sanders said. “We’ve committed to nothing.”
