This display of political violence follows a disturbing trend of Trump supporters and conservatives in general facing harassment and intimidation in public.
California Democrat Maxine Waters told a crowd in June, “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. Tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere!”
Many Democratic leaders, including Nancy Pelosi, publicly disavowed Waters’ remarks.
