On Tuesday, Washington Post reporter Christopher Ingraham commented on a monologue by President Donald Trump from last month, in which he warned that protesters are hurling "big bags of soup" at police, and hiding their nefarious intent when caught by claiming it's just "soup for their family."

Protesters in Portland have thrown rocks, bottles, soup cans, bricks, and fireworks at officers. Nevertheless, critics of Trump on social media ridiculed the president for his remarks, with the hashtag #BagsOfSoup trending alongside it.
