Black Swan Books in Richmond bills itself as a quaint, welcoming place – “where old books meet new friends!” – the type of local establishment where the most exciting thing to happen on any given day might be the acquisition of a rare hardcover.
On Saturday afternoon, however, the independent bookstore in Virginia’s capital became the next stop in the roving battle over civility in politics, after a customer spotted former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon inside and confronted him.
The article goes on to state the following:
Nick Cooke, the owner of Black Swan Books, told the Richmond Times-Dispatch that a woman in his store began verbally accosting Bannon when she saw him, including calling the former Trump adviser “a piece of trash.” It was shortly afterward that Cooke decided to call police, he said.
“Steve Bannon was simply standing, looking at books, minding his own business,” Cooke told the newspaper. “I asked [the woman confronting Bannon] 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.”
