Spitting on someone is one of the lowest and most vile things that someone can do to another person without physically touching them.
It almost definitely not a compliment and shouldn't be considered as a form of flattery (unless you are into that sort of thing), but Eric Trump has a very different opinion on the matter.
Recently, the executive vice president of the Trump Organisation was the subject of a spitting incident after an employee at an upmarket cocktail bar in Chicago 'gobbed' on the 35-year-old.
Although it is yet to be determined why someone spat on Trump (although we can probably guess why) at The Aviary in the West Loop neighbourhood of Chicago, he had a pretty good idea as what might have provoked such a reaction.
Speaking to the conservative news outlet, Breitbart, Trump asserted that the person that spat on him had 'emotional problems' and it 'emphasised that we're [Republicans] winning'.
It was purely a disgusting act by somebody who clearly has emotional problems.
For a party that preaches tolerance, this once again demonstrates they have very little civility.
When somebody is sick enough to resort to spitting on someone, it just emphasises a sickness and desperation and the fact that we’re winning.
We're not sure if being spit on equates to 'winning' but at this point is it worth arguing with the Trump's anymore?
As for the incident itself, it was reported that the secret service took a woman into custody at 8:30pm on Tuesday for questioning with the Chicago police department assisting the authorities.

Trump was reported to be with a group of people in the bar when it happened and the woman was subsequently handcuffed and placed in a police car.
Trump has since decided to drop any charges against the woman and she was released from custody.
Unlike his father, Eric Trump has decided not to go on a Twitter rant about the incident but he has liked several tweets that make reference to it.

Interestingly, as reported by The Hill,the owner of the bar that Trump visited has previous with the Trump family.
In January, Nick Kokonas invited the national college football champions, the Clemson University Tigers, to the bar for a 'celebration dinner' after the Trump administration served them fast food when they visited the White House.
