Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 5

To those that say the restaurant was wrong, a CNN opinion piece counters ".... But let's make it clear, this is not about asking someone to leave or heckling them simply because they are Republicans or conservatives. That would be wrong. This is about targeting people who are very publicly invo...
