There’s something absurdly out of touch about party leaders, 2020 hopefuls, and pundits taking the time to dampen the harmless catharsis of seeing those who are paid to defend Trumps most shameful policy decisions being shamed in non-violent acts of direct action. It’s tone policing a constituency that is sick of the atrocities this administration gets away with, wagging the finger at those who don’t feel morally compromised by tales of powerful administration officials being mildly inconvenienced at restaurants.

  3. The whole point of wealth and privilege is seeing your will reflected around you, and being free of concern for the needs and opinions of others. Being hounded at dinner is precisely the thing that status is supposed to avoid; when this starts happening, the whole ‘system’ is failing to do its job of funnelling disproportionate benefits their way.
