California congressman Ted Lieu gets some appreciation — and free dessert

  • July 10, 2018

While some public figures are being hassled in public, at least one is receiving free dessert.

Rep. Ted Lieu was buying food at a Greek diner recently when the owner gave him free baklava and thanked him for his work in Congress.

“When I arrived, the owner saw me threw in a free baklava (one of my favorite desserts)… I guess that’s what happens when one opposes ripping kids away from parents,” Lieu tweeted Tuesday.

Lieu was likely referencing Trump adviser Stephen Miller, an architect of the “zero tolerance” policy that has led to thousands of children being separated from their families.

On Tuesday, the Washington Post published a report about Miller throwing away an $80 sushi takeout order recently after he was cursed out by one of the restaurant staffers. 

Miller is far from the only public figure who has been harassed in public. In recent weeks, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, former Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon all faced public confrontations.
