[Ed. – Paging Obama pal Bill Ayers.]
A left-wing writer warned Trump administration officials this week that the backlash against them will get much worse than being kicked out of restaurants.
Splinter‘s Hamilton Nolan wrote the essay on the progressive news site after White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders complained over the weekend about being asked to leave a Virginia restaurant by an owner who was critical of her work for the Trump administration.
Nolan said these types of incidents are ‘only the beginning’.
‘This is all going to get more extreme. And it should. We are living in extreme times,’ he writes.
Nolan says he does not ‘believe that Trump administration officials should be able to live their lives in peace and affluence while they inflict serious harms on large portions of the American population’.
‘Not being able to go to restaurants and attend parties and be celebrated is just the minimum baseline here. These people, who are pushing America merrily down the road to fascism and white nationalism, are delusional if they do not think that the backlash is going to get much worse.
