Bookstore owner calls 911 when customer confronts Bannon

PRAGUE CZECH REPUBLIC- MAY 22 Steve Bannon former White House Chief Strategist to U.S. President Donald Trump attends a debate with Lanny Davis former special counsel to Bill Clinton at Zofin Palace

The frequently three-shirted former chief strategist to President Trump was browsing at Black Swan Books, an independent bookstore in his hometown of Richmond, Virginia, when a fellow customer approached him and called him a "piece of trash". "I asked [the woman confronting Bannon] to leave, and she wouldn't".

Cooke told the paper he had no comment when asked if he had a personal relationship with Bannon and said he wanted to respect the former Trump official's privacy, calling him as "a private person in my bookshop".

Liu Xia, wife of late Nobel Peace Prize victor , leaves China
Liu Xiaobo had been jailed in 2009 for subversion, for his involvement in Charter 08, a manifesto calling for reforms. On Chinese social media, some are expressing their happiness for her-obliquely, of course, so as to avoid censorship.

Mr. Cooke would not tell the Times Dispatch whether Mr. Bannon, a native of the Virginia capital, often frequents the store. When she did not, he threatened to call police. "And I said, 'I'm going to call the police if you don't, ' and I went to call the police and she left", Mr. Cooke told the newspaper.

Current members of the Trump administration have also faced public shame recently.

Serena Williams assesses Wimbledon chances after reaching quarter-finals
It's also the only Grand Slam tournament in the half-century professional era with zero top-10 seeds in the women's final eight. It was Serena's 18th straight win at the All England Club as the 23-time Grand Slam champion reached her 13th quarter-final.

The Richmond Police Department confirmed to the Times-Dispatch that a 911 call was made Saturday afternoon but said it was canceled before officers responded. Stephen Miller, the president's senior adviser, was also confronted near his apartment over the weekend by a bartender who cursed at him and gave him the middle finger, the Washington Post reported.

The incident comes on the heels of other cases of civilians confronting Trump appointees. "We provide [detained pregnant women] with prenatal care, we provide them separate housing, we provide them specialists, we will take them to appointments if they need to go somewhere else, we provide them counseling", said Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in May. "Bookshops are all about ideas and tolerating different opinions and not about verbally assaulting somebody", he said.
