Eric Trump says a cocktail bar worker spit on him
President Donald Trump’s son Eric Trump told Breitbart News Tuesday night he was spit on at the Chicago cocktail lounge The Aviary by an employee.
"It was purely a disgusting act by somebody who clearly has emotional problems. 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."— Eric Trump statement to Breitbart News
What they're saying: The Aviary said in a statement on Wednesday it had placed the woman on leave, as it condemned the act of spitting.
