The challenges of living in Washington for members of the Trump administration “are magnified exponentially” in a predominantly Democratic city where President Donald Trump only garnered 4 percent of the vote.
That’s the emphasis of a piece by the Washington Post that features presidential counsel Kellyanne Conway and senior adviser Stephen Miller, among others.
With various members of the administration being accosted in public recently, the harassment by unhinged liberals is likely to get worse with Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif, calling for a campaign of harassment and intimidation against Trump’s team.

Conway recalled in The Post article that after arriving in Washington, she was harassed by a man in a downtown supermarket.
“You ought to be ashamed of yourself! Go look in the mirror!” the man sneered at her as he rushed past her with his shopping card, Conway said.
“Mirrors are in aisle 9 — I’ll go get one now,” she recalled telling him, without missing a beat.
“What am I gonna do? Fall apart in the canned vegetable aisle?” asked the South Jersey native.
Miller, a driving force behind President Trump’s hard line stance against illegal immigration, recounted a story of being so upset after being accosted by a hostile bartender that he threw away $80 of takeout sushi.
The Trump adviser said that after ordering the sushi from a restaurant near his D.C. apartment, a bartender followed him into the street.
“Stephen!”the man reportedly shouted, and when Miller turned, the bartender raised both middle fingers and cursed at him.
Earlier this year, a stranger shouted “Better be better!” at Miller while he was walking through Dupont Circle, the paper noted.
The Post included the report that Stephen Bannon, Trump’s former strategist, was confronted at an antiquarian bookstore in Richmond by a woman who called him a “piece of trash.”
However, the controversial figure is no longer part of the administration, having been fired, nor is he representative of those who are.
In the end, the campaign of hate is just part of an ongoing effort to undermine this administration, as Trump’s former communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, suggested.
“I would say it’s burning people out,” Scaramucci told The Post. “I just think there’s so much meanness, it’s causing some level of, ‘What do I need this for?’”
“And I think it’s a recruiting speed bump for the administration,” he said. “To be part of it, you’ve got to deal with the incoming of some of this viciousness.”
If you think the notoriety of such viciousness might cause liberals to rethink their political discourse, think again.
In proving just how deranged things have become, here’s a sampling of reactions fron liberal zealots from Twitter:

Keep the presure up y'all. Make these fascists afraid. Confront them wherever you see them. Force them to feel & see our righteous rage until they buckle under the weight of it. I don't care how you do it, but we all need to do what we can how we can to disrupt the damn system. https://t.co/2GRSZpgCUW
