“Authorities decided there was no other action they could take”
Last week as Trump arrived at the U.S. Capitol, a young woman screamed “Mr. President, f*** you!” That person has now been identified as an intern for New Hampshire Democrat Senator Maggie Hassan. The intern has been suspended but not fired.
Isn’t it fascinating how the people who keep telling us Trump is Hitler never seem to suffer any consequences for their behavior, no matter how outrageous it is?
Chad Pergram reports at FOX News:
Intern who cursed at Trump is identified, was suspended but not fired
The Congressional intern who hollered “Mr. President, f— you!” across the Capitol Rotunda last week during a presidential visit has been identified.
Sources tell Fox News the woman in question is 21-year-old Caitlin Marriott, who is interning in the office of Sen. Maggie Hassan, D-N.H.
Fox News is told she has not been terminated and will continue to work there through August.
Congressional authorities were finally able to identifiy Marriott and speak with her to determine if she posed a threat to the president, sources said. She raced from where she heckled Trump, forcing U.S. Capitol Police to put out a “be on the lookout” over their radios.
After deciding Marriott didn’t pose a threat to President Trump, authorities decided there was no other action they could take. However, Fox News was told that Marriott will be confined to her duties in Hassan’s office on the third floor of the Hart Senate office building and earned a week-long suspension.
Here’s a video of the incident:

How the heck does this behavior NOT get you terminated as an intern?

Any intern who would shout that at any president should be fired.

She should be fired not suspended for a week.

She thought this was okay because of what she sees/reads/hears the left saying.. it’s sad.. really sad the lack of respect and integrity and appropriate behavior.. people have respectful disagreed for years. Nothing will get accomplished this way.. #bringbackcommonsense

@SenatorHassan Wow is all I can say for the disrespect. Can’t imagine the conversations in your office that made her feel like that was ok. You should be ashamed of her and let her go. She must be related.

Good way to ruin a career before it starts. Embarrassing

This is a good prediction:
Democrat intern who yelled “f*** you” at @POTUS won’t be fired.
