Capitol Hill Intern Who Shouted ‘F*ck You’ at Trump Is Suspended

The bold summer intern who grabbed the opportunity to shout “Fuck you!” at Donald Trump in the Capitol last week during the height of the outrage over the forced separation of migrant families has been identified and suspended for a week. Caitlin Marriott, 21, shouted “Mr. President, fuck you!” at Trump as he walked through the Rotunda last Tuesday and the audio was picked up on a video shot by a reporter from NBC News. The intern is working for Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-NH)—she’ll be allowed to complete her summer internship, but will be suspended for a week and restricted to work in the Hart Senate Office Building. “We are aware of the situation and have taken disciplinary action, including a one-week suspension and revoking her congressional intern ID badge, thereby restricting her access to the Capitol, in response to her breach of office policies regarding respectful and appropriate conduct,” Hassan’s communications director, Aaron Jacobs, said in a statement.
