From Kellyanne Conway to Stephen Miller, Trump's advisers face taunts from hecklers around D.C.

Source: Washington Post

Just after arriving in Washington to work for President Trump, Kellyanne Conway found herself in a downtown supermarket, where a man rushing by with his shopping cart sneered, “You ought to be ashamed of yourself! Go look in the mirror!”

“Mirrors are in aisle 9 — I’ll go get one now,” Conway recalled replying. She brushed off the dart with the swagger of someone raised in the ever-attitudinal trenches of South Jersey. “What am I gonna do? Fall apart in the canned vegetable aisle?”
...
“Better be better!” a stranger shouted at Stephen Miller, a senior Trump adviser and the architect of his zero-tolerance immigration policy, as he walked through Dupont Circle a few months ago. Miller’s visage subsequently appeared on “Wanted” posters someone placed on lampposts ringing his City Center apartment building.
...
Most of the interactions that Trump’s well-known aides have with strangers amount to nothing more than posing for selfies. But his advisers have also found themselves subjected to a string of embarrassing public spankings, a litany that began even before he took office.

1. Can it be too much to hope that a great wave of disgust with Republicans

Washes across not only blue states and Democratic-run cities, but across the country?

2. What this says is this,

our Nation has awakened and the Bastard's are being exposed for who they are and what they represent. And the Public is saying,enough already,you will be held accountable for your lies and your lying actions.

3. civility got us nowehere; I support nonviolent resistance

and public shaming in any way possible. We the people are their employers. They can’t lie on our dime and expect us to serve them. They defrauded the american public and it is a perfect cause to refuse service to anyone in this admin.

6. and absolutely NOTHING compared to the pain Putin and his puppet will inflict on humanity

We need to challenge the Un-American assholes EVERYWHERE. They should not have a moment of peace.

"No justice, no peace" has a relevant ring to it right now.

AND ....DO NOT for one stinking minute believe any of the Russian troll BULLSHIT about leaving the party!!!!
The Soviet/KGB/GRU/Putin troll farm is in high gear trying to sabotage the midterms.

DO NOT BELIEVE A FUCKING MICROSECOND OF IT.

We are UNITED in bringing about the total destruction of Trumpism and the Repuke Party. Nothing LESS.

8. Yes. Politeness in the face of evil is acquiescence.

It is normalizing evil as just another legitimate political position.

No more legitimizing this horror show!

10. We also need elected officials who fight their economic & foreign policy agenda

and police state expansion for that matter.

I'm glad Democrats are standing up when Republicans screw immigrants, minorities, & LGBT, but they also need to do when they screw ALL of us.

I'm sure their disgust has only grown.

15. When most people live in a diverse community, it REDUCES their prejudices

He must have been dropped on his head as a baby or something.

16. Samohi was not that diverse. It is a very affluent area, mostly white.

It was a very liberal area though. Not as much now, but still quite blue, and still mostly white.

12. the very first episode of BLACK MIRROR showed how we should treat all elected officials

When the government tries to manipulate the public during a political crisis, they were constantly undercut by the public tweeting, texting, and live streaming the set up of their scams.

That should happen at every power lunch, golf trip, meeting hookers in the hotel lounge or whatever.
