Fox News host Brian Kilmeade described Donald Trump’s son Eric Trump allegedly getting spit on at a Chicago restaurant as a “sacrifice” that the president’s family is making for the American people.
“It’s part of the sacrifice of the Trump family,” Kilmeade said on Wednesday morning.
A waitress at The Aviary cocktail bar in Chicago allegedly spat on Eric Trump, an executive vice president of The Trump Organization, on Tuesday evening. The president’s son did not press charges and the restaurant’s owner confirmed to Newsweek that the employee had been put on leave while the alleged incident remained under review.
“Last night, Eric Trump was in Chicago, and apparently a woman at a place called The Aviary spit on him,” said co-host Steve Doocy. “And he told the Breitbart it was a purely disgusting act by somebody who clearly has emotional problems.”
“And she was a waitress,” Kilmeade added. “And she actually worked there.”
“So you know what that’s like, you know what I’d like to feel under attack, you live in Los Angeles,” Kilmeade said to Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren.
“Didn’t you have water thrown on you?” co-host Jedediah Bila asked.
“Yeah, I had water thrown at me,” Lahren claimed before bizarrely tying water assaults and LGBTQ Pride events.
“I think this has become par for the course, and it’s because a lot of Democrats, a lot of the folks on the left, the ‘loving and tolerant’ left, believe that they have a moral obligation to attack disparage and harass people who don’t think like they do,” Lahren said. “So I walk around the city of New York, I walk around LA, and I see pride, I see tolerance, and I see love, but that same affection love and tolerance is not given to conservatives. It’s funny how one-sided their loving tolerance is.”
“It’s part of the sacrifice of the Trump family,” Kilmeade mused, poignantly. “Half the country lauds them and loves them, and the other half is angry, and it’s not easy being the child of a president of the United States.”
