Trump fan refuses to let go after he’s banned from favorite restaurant for being a jerk — and he wants Fox News to get him back in

Published

A Minnesota man complained that he was kicked out of a restaurant for supporting President Donald Trump — but the owners say he was banned for being a jerk.

Greg Aberle told the conservative Alpha News website that he was banned from Porter Creek Hardwood Grill for wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, saying he’s spent about $90,000 at the Burnsville eatery over the course of a decade, reported Bring Me The News.

“After being a solid long-term customer there for nine years with myself and my circle of friends, they decided to ban me from ever returning a few weeks back,” Aberle told the conservative site. “[My girlfriend] and I have never done a thing to warrant getting kicked out of that place, aside from wearing Trump hats.”

Aberle complained in a one-star review on the restaurant’s TripAdvisor page that a manager pulled him aside during a visit in June to say the president wasn’t popular there, but he kept going back to Porter Creek wearing his Trump hat — until employees “got in his face” during an argument.

He complained to the restaurant’s co-owner, John Sheehan, who asked him not to come back and then disputed Aberle’s account on Facebook.

“While we have appreciated his patronage over the years, there has been a clear stress on the restaurant due to his presence,” read the post, which was signed by Sheehan. “When asked recently, our staff and management felt Mr. Aberle was an extremely difficult guest that affected their work life and the dining experience of guests in our restaurant, and most felt he should not be welcomed back.”

The restaurant owner added that Aberle has been a problem for years, saying he sometimes refused to wear shoes in the restaurant or bathroom and brought in food from home or other restaurants.

The banned customer has been especially disrespectful of social distancing and other coronavirus safety guidelines, according to the restaurant owner.

Aberle posted text from what he said was a letter from the restaurant’s attorneys threatening to sue for defamation, and he shared text purportedly from his attorney threatening to take the story to Fox News host Tucker Carlson or MSNBC host Rachel Maddow.

‘Trump is scared’ and ‘literally does not appear to understand’ what is going on around him: White House reporter

Published

on

Writing in The Bulwark this Thursday, Playboy Magazine White House correspondent Brian Karem says that President Trump is losing the "strength and vigor" that carried him to an election win in 2016, especially in the wake of recently being "eviscerated" by Chris Wallace of Fox News and Jonathan Swan of Axios.

The interviews "not only exposed how unprepared Trump is for the long-interview format, but how unfamiliar and unrelatable he remains to facts," Karem writes. "He literally does not appear to understand them."

There was a time when a blusterous Trump would pick fights with reporters, but now he can "barely muster the get-up-and-go to turn the page on the briefing notes that he pretty obviously hasn’t looked at before lumbering to the podium," Karem writes.

Journalist Natasha Lennard, in an article published by The Intercept on August 5, dissects Cruz’ “political theater” and lays out some reasons why the hearing was a embarrassing farce.

‘A lying draft dodger’: Republican military veterans slam Trump and declare their support for Biden in new attack ad

Published

on

The Lincoln Project is not the only right-wing group that has been running ads slamming President Donald Trump; the group Republicans Voters Against Trump has been running anti-Trump ads as well. And a new RVAT ad, Ed Mazza reports in HuffPost, features Republican military veterans who do not want to see Trump reelected and are supporting former Vice President Joe Biden.

The ad, Mazza notes, will air on Fox News later this month during the 2020 Republican National Convention. And it will air in key battleground states that include Florida, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, North Carolina and Arizona — all of which Trump won in 2016. Recent polls have shown Biden to be quite competitive in those states as well as in Michigan, where Trump’s campaign has suspended its advertising following an abundance of polls showing Biden with a double-digit lead.
