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.
Cop says Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should be shot following Trump’s racist targeting of The Squad
Following racist attacks on members of The Squad by President Donald Trump and his supporters, a police officer in Louisiana reportedly said that one of the congresswomen of color should be shot.
Trump has been lashing out at the four first-term congresswomen, who include Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).
"A Gretna police officer posted a comment on his Facebook page this past week calling U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a 'vile idiot' who 'needs a round, and I don't mean the kind she used to serve,'" NOLA reported Saturday.
Internet piles on ABC reporter for lavishing praise on Trump for allowing press to ask questions
ABC News reporter Kyra Phillips on Saturday heaped praise on President Donald Trump for his treatment of the press.

"No matter what your politics are, I have to say that I appreciate the access ?Trump? gives us on a regular basis and the ability to ask any question," she said.
She tagged Stephanie Grisham in her tweet, who is Trump's latest press secretary. She also tagged her husband, John Roberts, who does not work in the White House, but works for Fox News.

"As a woman of color watching him attack those four women, it made it very clear that Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to our democracy," she said.
"And everyone has been kind of tiptoeing what this actually is. Donald Trump wants to start a race war in this country and it started at that rally — it started with the tweets," she said.
