“Resisting” Trump can be hard work and cause a Resistor to work up an appetite, but Democrat Rep. Ted Lieu said a grateful restaurant owner helped eliminate his hunger pains recently:
My experience at restaurants: I ordered take out at a Greek restaurant. When I arrived, the owner saw me & threw in a free baklava (one of my favorite desserts). He said he appreciated what I was doing. I guess that's what happens when one opposes ripping kids away from parents.

While some Trump staffers have been asked to leave restaurants or have been heckled until leaving, Rep. Lieu claims he’s being fed by a grateful Resistance Nation.
