A Richmond, Virginia, bookstore owner said he called the police on Saturday after former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon was confronted in his store.
Nick Cooke, owner of Black Swan Books, told The Richmond Times-Dispatch that a woman called Bannon a piece of trash.
The woman then left the store after Cooke said he called 911.
Steve Bannon was simply standing, looking at books, minding his own business. I asked her to leave, and she wouldnt. And I said, Im going to call the police if you dont, and I went to call the police and she left, Cooke said. And thats the end of the story.
Bannon grew up in Richmond, the newspaper noted.
The Richmond Police Department confirmed the call was made but the call was canceled before officers responded.
We are a bookshop. Bookshops are all about ideas and tolerating different opinions and not about verbally assaulting somebody, which is what was happening, Cooke said.
Bannon joins a growing list of political figures associated with President Trump who have been confronted in public in recent weeks.
Protesters in Kentucky followed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to his car while he was leaving a Louisville restaurant on Saturday, threatening to vote him out of office.
Others, including White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, also have been confronted by protesters for their association with the Trump administration and its policies.
This is mad Maxine in progress. They can play this way till they try it on a regular old Trumper ccw. Then things will get tough.
I think it’s more than madmax..Soros and friends are likely behind this. Not that madmax isn’t 100% onboard.
Trump is going to win in a landslide next election. They still don’t understand why they lost.
Someone buy that woman a newspaper. What next, assaulting Corey Lewandowski?
Don’t many of these Trumpers have a security man? Maybe they need a more interactive strategy where the guard calmly steps in. This is clearly becoming a routine attack ploy.
It is an attack ploy, but I can imagine someone thinking they are in front of Steve Bannon when it’s just a guy who resembles Steve. The problem here...there’s just some folks who won’t be intimidated, and she might be picking on the wrong ‘fake’ Steve, and then find herself knocked out and missing four teeth when she awakens. The minute that you intimidate someone, and barely touch them...they can go into defensive mode and clobber you. In southern states, the judges will say that you had a right to defend yourself.
Another one “maxined”.
Only people at the very highest levels of government have security like that.
I’ve been a bodyguard. They’re expensive. Most celebrities only hire them when they’re going to a venue or event where trouble might occur. Only hundred-millionaires and billionaires normally have them on a regular basis.
Soros = Wall Street.
The intolerant hate of liberalism on full display. It is a joy watching them out themselves under Trump. A pure joy. Keep it up, liberal scum. You are pushing more and more voters toward the GOP this midterm election. It is going to be a bloodbath if they keep this up.
This crap really didn't start with Fugly Maxine....it started with HILLIARY 25 years ago!! Obama told them to take a GUN to a knife fight...
.Mad Maxine is just a Follower!!
2018 Red Wave MAGA, 2020 KAG here we come......

Next time I’m in Richmond, I must buy a book!
WHAT?!? A business owner that protects and defends his clientèle?!?
How in the world did THAT happen?
This kind of stuff plays well with extremists, but not in Middle America. Keep it up leftists...
