An angry individual bragged on Twitter last night about how he stood up to a "Nazi" and his violent girlfriend at Hill Country DC, a popular BBQ restaurant in the nation's capital. He implored his social media followers not to patronize the place.
Just who was this "Nazi" Helmstetter so bravely confronted?
Yep. The gentleman's only offense was his audacity to wear a red MAGA hat. On Fourth of July. When President Trump was planning to give a speech on the National Mall.
Yes, how very out of place.
Still, how dare Trump supporters step foot in his favorite restaurant. Didn't they know it was his favorite??
Strangely, Helmstetter has been retweeting people who are mercilessly mocking him.
But, he's made up his mind. He'll no longer be dining at his favorite restaurant. (graphic language below)
Dear TJ, you keep using that word. I don't think it means what you think it means.
Unlike Helmstetter, Trump supporters and Trump associates have been actual victims of public harassment. Most memorably, former Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was refused service at Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia last year because co-owner Stephanie Wilkinson didn't like her. She asked Sanders to leave because, according to her, Sanders supports “inhumane and unethical” presidential policies.
Wilkinson doesn't regret it either. In a recent op-ed, she said Sanders and her "unsavory" ilk "should consider dining at home.”
When other Trump associates have tried to go out for quiet meals, they've run into hecklers who have tended to shout “fascist!” at them, or, in the case of former Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, "shame!"
Last week, Eric Trump was literally spat on in a Chicago lounge.
