Ever since Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage was hit by a milkshake (a cowardly move slyly endorsed by Burger King on its Twitter feed), “milkshake” has become a verb, as in, Vox’s Carlos Maza says of far-right leaders, “Milkshake them all. Humiliate them at every turn.”
As Twitchy reported earlier, a Trump supporter was hit with a milkshake at an anti-Trump protest as the president visited the U.K. Tuesday. Keep an eye on the blond woman screaming in his face and then laughing.
A Trump supporter is milkshaked by a hostile crowd in Parliament Square.

British radio host Julia Hartley-Brewer noted that the woman had been identified, but she wasn’t going to name her:
It would appear that this delightful woman screaming abuse at a Trump supporter at today’s demo – & laughing as he is milkshaked – has been identified. I won’t name her. But she works for the NHS & cares about mental health issues so obviously she’s A NICE PERSON. Okaaaaaaay. pic.twitter.com/mvY9uTLzp1

Don’t worry, we have all posted on her site letting her know our opinion.

The whole episode is disgraceful
— Pamela Harper (@PamelaHalcyon) June 4, 2019
She should be sacked after that performance. And I'm glad she cares about mental health issues because she needs help for hers!

These people are just bullies. They need to grow up and realise that you can’t expect everyone to agree with you. She should not get away with this behaviour!

I believe in naming and shaming

We weren’t going to name her, but it looks like she’s posted an apology:
I am very sorry for my behaviour today. I should have protested peacefully & I didn't, & I regret that. I've let myself down & I do understand that fully. There are two sides to every story, but my actions were my own, & that's on me.
Please leave my family & friends out if it.

That sounds … sincere?
You should apologise to the Police Officer WPC 3314 for the distress you caused her.

No need to apologise, you've shown us all what the far left of politics stands for, it's values and it's depth of depravity.

Well done – Keep up the good work for the left, promoting tolerance and rejecting populist mob rule fascism……

The intolerant left are getting more intolerant each day they can’t cope with different views very sad people indeed.

They are the fascists.

Too late. Your conduct was inexcusable
— Berrys Agriculture (@berrys_info) June 4, 2019
Takes guts to come out and apologise, well done.
— Mark Lees (@WinterfellT) June 4, 2019
The way your mood changed from complete anger to complete joy, when that chap got hit with the milkshake, somehow makes me doubt how truly sorry you really are.
I think its more likely that now you have been outed, you feel the need to show remorse.
— J M S (@jmstocka) June 4, 2019
Absolutely twattish behaviour but a fair and public apology.
— matt (@MattyHume) June 4, 2019
It’s a lot more than we expected, frankly. Maybe the U.K. has a TDS injection that’s proved effective.
