Steve Bannon is not a favorite amongst the good and honest people of this country, and evidence of that was found in a Richmond, Virginia book store on Saturday. The nazi sympathizer was spotted by a fellow shopper at Black Swan Books and all hell broke loose.
Bannon was browsing the shelves when a woman recognized him and immediately called him out.

According to Richmond Times Dispatch:
“A bookstore owner in Richmond said he called the police after a woman confronted Steve Bannon, former White House chief strategist for President Donald Trump, in his shop Saturday.”
Store owner Nick Cooke says that an unknown woman shouted to Bannon that he was a “piece of trash.”
Cooke says he then asked the woman to leave the store and she refused. Then, as Cooke was dialing the local police, the woman gave up and walked out of the store.
Cooke gave the following statement to the press:
“Steve Bannon was simply standing, looking at books, minding his own business. I asked her to leave, and she wouldn’t. And I said, ‘I’m going to call the police if you don’t,’ and I went to call the police and she left. And that’s the end of the story.”
The police department confirmed that they received a call from Nick Cooke, but that the situation resolved itself before officers needed to be called to the scene.
“We are a bookshop. Bookshops are all about ideas and tolerating different opinions and not about verbally assaulting somebody, which is what was happening.”
Steve Bannon’s camp is silent.
