Bookstore Owner Calls Police On Woman Harassing Steve Bannon; Top Hillary Clinton Aide Responds

A Richmond, Virginia, bookstore owner called the police on a customer for verbally berating Steve Bannon.

Black Swan Books owner Nick Cooke told the Richmond Times-Dispatch that a woman in the store proceeded to call the former Trump adviser a “piece of trash.”

“Steve Bannon was simply standing, looking at books, minding his own business,” Cooke said. “I asked her to leave, and she wouldn’t. And I said, ‘I’m going to call the police if you don’t,’ and I went to call the police and she left. And that’s the end of the story.”

But then:

Philippe Reines, once a top aide to Hillary Clinton,  tweeted out the book shop’s address, which was viewed as an implicit call to boycott or attack it.
