By Townhall. Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) had a unique take Monday in light of Trump administration officials facing harassment from protestors in restaurants and other public places over President Trump’s immigration policies. Lieu bragged on Twitter that he actually gets free food at restaurants, attributing it to his immigration stance.
My experience at restaurants: I ordered take out at a Greek restaurant. When I arrived, the owner saw me & threw in a free baklava (one of my favorite desserts). He said he appreciated what I was doing. I guess that's what happens when one opposes ripping kids away from parents.

Before Ramos was identified, liberals and some journalists widely speculated the shooter was motivated by Trump’s past comments about journalists. (Read more from “WAPO Columnist Accuses Trump of ‘Fomenting Violence’ Against Journalists” HERE)
