The Washington Post raised eyebrows throughout the nation’s capital Tuesday, publishing an article that states “chasing White House” officials was the “right thing to do” in light of the administration’s recent actions on immigration and other issues.
The article, appropriately titled “Chasing White House officials out of restaurants is the right thing to do” went on to say that “civility is a luxury for pundits” while “children in diapers have been seized from their parents.”
“Children, some still in diapers, have been seized from their parents by the government and locked in cages, with no clear way to reunite them with their families afterward. That situation might seem more urgent, in itself, than the question of how people chose to react to the government seizing children and locking them in cages. Yet here we are, caught up in this fuss over — manners? Civility?” writes the author.
“What happened at the Red Hen in Lexington, Va., was not a contest between political parties, or between designated proxies of political parties. It was a private citizen telling a presidential administration official to go away, out of disgust with the fact that the administration is seizing children from their parents and locking them in cages,” he adds.

MAD MAXINE: Waters Calls for ‘PUBLIC HARASSMENT’ of Trump Cabinet Members
Firebrand Congresswoman Maxine Waters called for the “public harassment” of senior Trump aides over the weekend; urging her supporters to “push back” against the President’s cabinet members at “restaurants” and “gas stations.”
The liberal lawmaker was addressing a crowd of supporters when she unleashed on top Trump staffers, telling left-wing activists across the country to let them know “they’re not welcome anywhere.”
“And so, let’s stay the course. Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up and if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” screamed the Congresswoman.

TOO FAR? Schumer Slams Maxine’s ‘UN-AMERICAN’ Anti-Trump Rhetoric
California Congresswoman Maxine Waters continued to take heat from members of her own party this week, with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer blasting her harsh anti-Trump rhetoric as “not American.”
The New York Senator slammed Waters’ comments on the Senate floor just hours after she called for the public harassment of top Trump officials at “gasoline stations” and “restaurants.”
“No one should call for the harassment of political opponents. That’s not right. That’s not American,” he said. “The president’s tactics and behavior should never be emulated. It should be repudiated by organized, well informed and passionate advocacy.”
Schumer’s comments echo similar statements made by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Monday, who called Waters’ call-to-action completely “unacceptable.”
“Trump’s daily lack of civility has provoked responses that are predictable but unacceptable. As we go forward, we must conduct elections in a way that achieves unity from sea to shining sea,” she said.
