A bunch of daring pro-Trumpers held a rally in far-left California.
Things didn’t end well for one anti-Trump protester, in particular.
After spitting in a woman’s face with whom he disagreed, the unhinged man was taken away in handcuffs.
Some people feel that Blake Gibbins is a “hero” for tossing water on Republican Congressman Steve King (IA).
To normal people, this is nothing more than assault.
GOP members of Congress are constantly under attack from the far-left media verbally, but they also have to deal with radical protesters sparring with them physically.
Remember when Steve Scalise was nearly murdered? Remember when Rand Paul was tackled to the ground?
From CBS News:
Police said a Colorado man was arrested Friday after allegedly throwing water on Rep. Steve King at a restaurant in Fort Dodge, Iowa. King was having a group lunch when 26-year-old Blake Gibbins, of Lafayette, Colorado, approached the congressman’s table and allegedly threw a glass of water on King, the Fort Dodge police department said in a statement.
Based on witness information, police believe King was specifically targeted because of his position as a U.S. congressman. According to the Des Moines Register, Gibbins was visiting family in the area and did not know King would be in the restaurant.
Liberals have launched a GoFundMe in support of Gibbons, because, you know…of course, they did.
Here’s the proof:

Paul, Scalise, and King shouldn’t have to deal with this nonsense. Nobody should.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) shouldn’t be bombarded when he’s out to dinner in Washington DC. Likewse, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders shouldn’t be forced to flee a restaurant.
And yet, here we are.
Sen. Rand Paul, who was one of Trump’s targets during the 2016 election and doesn’t always see eye-to-eye with the commander-in-chief even today, came to his defense in a major way when Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) went on the attack.
In short, Rand told Mitt to knock it off.
Like other Big Government Republicans who never liked Reagan, Mitt Romney wants to signal how virtuous he is in comparison to the President. Well, I’m most concerned and pleased with the actual conservative reform agenda @realDonaldTrump has achieved.

Conservative powerhouse Ben Shapiro echoes Paul’s sentiments:
Even if you agree with the sentiments here, I don't get the strategy. If this is just seeking Strange New Respect from people who hated Romney in 2012 the same way they hate Trump today, that's not likely to reunify conservatives around the principles Romney is espousing. https://t.co/8wtBiOyTDs

Trump laid into Romney – see it at this link.
Policies and appointments are only a part of a presidency. A president must also unite us, inspire us, and defend our vital institutions. https://t.co/jmIw8XbV4k

Check out what RNC Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel, Mitt’s niece, thinks about the situation:
POTUS is attacked and obstructed by the MSM media and Democrats 24/7. For an incoming Republican freshman senator to attack @realdonaldtrump as their first act feeds into what the Democrats and media want and is disappointing and unproductive. https://t.co/ArhI7Bi7bo

Trump’s 2020 campaign manager weighed in, too:
The truth is @MittRomney lacked the ability to save this nation. @realDonaldTrump has saved it. Jealously is a drink best served warm and Romney just proved it. So sad, I wish everyone had the courage @realDonaldTrump had. https://t.co/mbxoTqbSX6
