President Donald Trump’s son Don Jr. recently attacked a performance of Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar” for depicting the former Roman politician as his father. During Friday night’s production, a woman was arrested for attacking actors of the production, The New York Daily News reported.
While previous productions of the show have done the same with former President Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush without incident, this one earned backlash from the Trump children. Sponsors of the show pulled their funding and Don Jr. blamed the Virginia shooting on the show.
The NYDN reported that the incident was part of a “stunt” that was live streamed online by Citizens for Trump head Jack Posobiec. Laura Loomer currently works for an alt-right website and was rushing the stage following the reports of the use of Trump as the Caeser character.
“Goebbels would be proud!” Posobiec shouted to the audience.
A legal defense fund has been set up on Loomer’s behalf.
“Two protesters disrupted our show tonight; we stopped the show for less than a minute and our stage manager handled it beautifully. The staff removed the protesters peacefully, and the show resumed with the line ‘Liberty! Freedom!’ The audience rose to their feet to thank the actors, and we joyfully continued. Free speech for all, but let’s not stop the show,” said Oskar Eustis, the artistic director of the Public Theater and director of the show.
Trump’s former White House doctor Ronny Jackson wins GOP runoff for Congress in Texas
Ronny Jackson, the former White House physician and President Donald Trump's onetime nominee for secretary of veterans affairs, has won his bid for the Republican nomination for a solidly red congressional seat in the Texas Panhandle.
With 100% of polling locations reporting, though some mail-in ballots will still need to be counted, Jackson held a lead of 11 percentage points over Josh Winegarner, a veteran agriculture expert and lobbyist. Jackson and Winegarner were competing for a seat being vacated by U.S. Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Clarendon, who is retiring and held the seat since 1995.
