A New York woman was issued a $115 fine for breastfeeding in a car, reports WABC-TV.

Guillermina Rodriguez was trying to feed her 3-month-old daughter while stuck in a massive traffic jam in Manhattan.

“I’m like almost crying because she’s crying, and all I want to do is pull over so I can tend to her,” Rodriguez told WABC-TV.

As she tried to tend to her daughter, an officer and a tow truck operator attempted to move her vehicle. She honked to make them stop. They did not tow the car, but they did give her a ticket. She tried to explain herself but it didn’t work.

“I showed him the baby and obviously my breast,” she said. “I’m like, ‘I’m breast-feeding the baby.’ He looks and then he just puts the ticket down, and he walks away.”

She reported the incident to a breastfeeding rights group, whose spokeswoman denounced the officer’s actions.

“As a society, we need to hear babies crying and answer them. And I don’t think she deserves a ticket for that,” La Leche League spokesperson Laura Beth Gilman told WABC-TV.

“I think she deserves understanding, and the police officer should have said, ‘Sure, I’ll give you a couple of minutes.”

Now it has become clear that the stories are not only true but that if Trump read his presidential daily briefing in 2019, he would have been aware of the problem.

Speaking to the House Thursday, Trump's former acting CIA director Michael Morell explained that things are being made far worse by the president's denial.

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell pointed it out during an interview with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).

"I was very nice to Mayor de Blasio. I got him ventilators when he needed them... I got him the gowns. I got him the masks. I got him everything. Then he throws a big Black Lives Matter sign right down in the middle of Fifth Avenue. I was so good to him and to Gov. Cuomo, like nobody's ever been good. And then all you end up doing out of that place is getting prosecuted."
