The continued ‘confronting’ of Trump officials, as called upon by Democratic Representative Maxine Waters, continued today after a customer in a Virginia bookstore walked up to former Trump adviser Mr Steve Bannon and, out of the blue, called him a ‘piece of trash.’

The owner of the Virginia bookstore, Mr Nick Cooke of Black Swan Books in Richmond, explained that the former White House chief strategist was quietly browsing books and “minding his own business” when a woman confronted him.

Mr Cooke stated: “Steve Bannon was simply standing, looking at books, minding his own business. I asked her to leave, and she wouldn’t.”

“And I said, ‘I’m going to call the police if you don’t,’ and I went to call the police and she left. And that’s the end of the story.”

“We are a bookshop. Bookshops are all about ideas and tolerating different opinions and not about verbally assaulting somebody, which is what was happening."

Mr Bannon, the former White House chief strategist and editor in chief of Breitbart, grew up in Richmond, Virginia. He did not comment on the events.

The confrontation is another one in a long line of political figures that are associated with the Trump administration being verbally assaulted in public.

Two weeks ago, also in Virginia, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked to leave the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington.

In June, Homeland Security Secretary Ms. Kirstjen Nielsen got shouted at whilst having dinner at a Mexican restaurant called MXDC by a group of protesters who were yelling “Shame!” at her.
