A mourner at Robert Trump’s Friday funeral at the White House allegedly punched a Washington, D.C., restaurant worker hours after the service, according to a report.
“I got a tip that someone in town for Robert Trump’s White House funeral punched a server tonight at D.C.’s Fig & Olive restaurant,” NBC News White House correspondent Geoff Bennett tweeted Friday evening.
“I called and an employee there confirmed it: ‘Somebody blindsided one of my servers. Clocked him right in the nose.’” The server was reportedly assaulted after telling the funeral guest’s group that the restaurant couldn’t seat his large party. “The employee says he believes the server’s nose is broken,” Bennett added.
Bennett said “some in the group were still carrying funeral programs.”
“Since reopening from the temporary dine-in closures due to Covid-19 restrictions, our Fig & Olive DC team has worked incredibly hard to rebuild and we have faced many challenges during the reopening period,” the spokeswoman said in a statement to FOX 5. “It is incredibly unfair our team had to deal with what occurred last night, and we will make sure the necessary steps are taken to address this.”
