A Washington, D.C., bartender once followed White House Senior Adviser Stephen Miller out of a sushi restaurant and cursed at him, according to the Washington Post.
In a story that detailed numerous cases of current and former Trump administration officials taking insults from members of the public in Washington, D.C., the newspaper mentioned an anecdote it said Miller had told to numerous colleagues.
Miller, a former Senate aide who has had a leading role in the administration’s immigration policies, told colleagues he had been insulted after picking up $80 in sushi from a restaurant near his downtown apartment.
Miller reportedly said that a bartender followed him onto the street, before shouting his name.
Miller said the bartender then raised both middle fingers toward him and cursed at him. The Post reports that Miller told co-workers that he became so outraged that he threw the sushi away.
Miller is far from the only Trump administration official to face such hostility in public.
The Post story relayed situations at book shops, grocery stores and other public places where people such as former White House strategist Stephen Bannon, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway and Vice President Pence have been confronted.
Shortly after Conway arrived in Washington to work in Trump’s White House, a man shouted at her, “You ought to be ashamed of yourself! Go look in the mirror!”
“I wasn’t expecting people to try to undo the election and drive us out of town,” Conway told the newspaper.
