As President Trump walked through the Capitol building, an intern shouted out the only reasonable response to the man: “Mr President, FUCK YOU!”. The Capitol Police are now looking for her. It’ll probably cost her her job.
If it’s any compensation, I think we should erect a large marble statue of her on the mall, facing the White House.
If she’s caught, that is. I’m hoping all of her friends and colleagues are protecting her identity right now.
This is from June.
I wonder what they thought they could charge the intern with.
Just searched . . . [ “white house” intern “fuck you” trump ]
The most recent article mentioning her that I can find is this one:
Angry Women Are Taken More Seriously When They’re Moms
(Caitlin Marriott is mentioned in contrast, as she was (presumably) not a mother)
@PZ: I posted a comment with 3 links and some blockquotes from those links, and the comment disappeared without an error. Is it in the spam folder?
I’m wondering if the multiple instances of “fuck you” in some of the blockquoted text caused the spam filter to trigger.
To summarize without the blockquotes or links: The intern was identified as 21-year-old Caitlin Marriott, intern to Senator Maggie Hassan, Democrat from New Hampshire, about a week after the incident. Caitlin was suspended for a week and had her ID badge revoked.
Conservative/GOP bloggers and pundits of course had a field day. But then, so did those who oppose them.

If a statue is to be erected it should have a prominent middle finger aimed at Donny dumpsterfire at all times. Maybe rotate based on his location. We have the technology!

From ethics watchdog Walter Shaub:
This total insanity. He can fleece us with no retribution from us? I have lost my mind.
The Vicar (via Freethoughtblogs) says
Y’know, Theodor Guisel (more commonly known as Dr. Seuss) was a political cartoonist during WWII, and one of his cartoons had a giant scowling Hitler rising over a landscape filled with people thumbing their noses at him and sticking out their tongues. The caption was “As long as men can do this, they are free”. Looks like we can’t “do this” any more, huh?
Have they not heard of free speech? Isn’t this what they want to be able to happen? I don’t understand why they can’t see the irony in tracking her down…
Gregory Greenwood says
It is becoming darkly humorous that the US still has the sheer gall to call itself the ‘land of the free’ when a woman can be hunted by the police for stating an opinion, entirely non-violently and in a fully legal fashion, that pricks the swollen ego of the narcissist-in-chief.
Too many links trip the spam filter.
I mean she called him “Mr President”! What could be more polite? I know what I’d call the slime-snot-digestive-mishap.

I know the statue you want his recently been permanently planted facing Wall St., after her preliminary staredown of the Bull statue nearby.
Would be great to plant a duplicate across the street from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, maybe modified with the appropriate hand gesture*.
Regardless of who is in office, no matter how beneficial, the office needs to be reminded it is always being watched closely by the citizens for proper behavior.
She would also be our reminder to keep watching that person we put in there.
only while “45” in office, to be replaced by original hands afterwards.
TGAP Dad says
I’ll chip in right now for said statue, displaying appropriate hand signal, to be placed in every public spot facing the front of a Trump property. If the identity of the young capitol intern is found, make it in her image, of course. Wouldn’t those be marvelous additions to the middle of 5th Avenue, the front gates of Mar a Lago, downtown Chicago…
Someone should start that GoFundMe page!
