News pundits and liberal activists celebrated the interruption of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s dinner on Tuesday evening, when she was confronted by several chanting members of the DC Democratic Socialists of America.

The insinuation from many seemed to be that Nielsen herself was the one with “gall” for dining at a Mexican restaurant.

We’ll kick off the tweet parade with a classic from CNN’s Ana Navarro, suggesting that Nielsen should eat at restaurants of her own ethnicity. (RELATED: ‘Fascist Pig!’ — Chanting Socialists Chase DHS Secretary Nielsen Out Of Mexican Restaurant)

And another one that Navarro deleted but The Washington Examiner’s Byron York saved.

One Los Angeles Times writer called Nielsen’s decision to eat at a Mexican restaurant “political theater designed to get some sympathetic press.”
