Liberal reporter calls cops, shares photo of young Target worker who wouldn’t sell him a toothbrush for a penny


A grandstanding liberal reporter has come under heavy fire for his overreaction and treatment of a manager at Target who was doing her job.

David Leavitt, who describes himself as an “award-winning multimedia journalist,” had a meltdown Friday, venting on social media, calling the police and threatening a lawsuit against the Target store after a young manager refuse d to sell him an electric toothbrush for a penny.

The reporter, with bylines at CBS and Yahoo News, took to Twitter to alert his more than 212,000 followers that the young woman was “not honoring the price” of the item, citing Massachusetts law.

He not only posted a photo of the manager, he went on to call the police, emphasizing that he did not call the emergency 911 number.

“Corporations like @target are not above the law,” Leavitt declared in another tweet, announcing he would be taking the issue to court.

The anti-Trump reporter shared that he has “not been able to afford to go to a dentist,” though he didn’t explain how he could afford a lawsuit.

Leavitt’s ridiculous meltdown was quickly slammed on social media.

The incident and tweets naming the manager led to the hashtag #TargetTori being launched as well as a GoFundMe page to help “send her on a vacation.”

Pro-Trump meme-maker Carpe Donktum, a.k.a. Logan Cook, started the fundraiser which has raised over $15,000 as of this writing, far exceeding the $5,000 goal.

Apparently Leavitt’s need to create drama was not limited to Target.

The scathing rebukes of Leavitt continued to pour in on Twitter.

And many celebrated the support for #Target Tori.
