WATCH: Pam Bondi Confronted at Mister Rogers Doc Screening

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi was heckled following a screening of the Mr. Rogers documentary in Tampa Friday night.

On the comment thread for the video posted by Deadspin editor Timothy Burke, there were two very distinct viewpoints.

“Pam Bondi gets shamed out of a cinema. Sarah Huckabee Sanders gets booted from a restaurant. Kirstjen Nielsen gets picketed at a Mexican restaurant. Trump’s goons are actively ruining lives on massive scale. It is perfectly fitting for taxpayers of conscience to ruin their night.”

Followed by:

“That is a disgusting statement. No one has the right to ruin anyone’ s night or life. It’s part of God’s commamdment to “love one another.”

Protesters who yelled, ‘Shame on you!” and “What would Mister Rogers think about you and your legacy in Florida?” were reacting to Bondi’s official actions on health care policy and her position on immigration.

In the video shot by Organize Florida, a number of people can be heard yelling at Bondi as she exits the Tampa Theatre after a screening of the new Mr. Rogers doc, ‘Won’t You Be My Neighbor?’

Police confirmed they receive a call and came to escort Bondi out.

Bonid told the Tampa Tribune, “We were in a movie about anti-bullying and practicing peace and love and tolerance and accepting of people for their differences. That’s what Mister Rogers is all about. We all believe in free speech, but there’s a big difference there.”

Three was no plan to protest Bondi, the Tribune was told until she was spotted in the ticket line for the film about Fred Rogers of Mr. Rogers Neighborhood who was also a musician, puppeteer, writer, and Presbyterian minister.

In late March, Bondi joined GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann outside the Supreme Court as Justice’s were hearing arguments on the Constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act.

Bondi is one of a number of attorneys general around the country suing to stop Obamacare access to health insurance for people with pre-existing conditions. The Sun Sentinel said that would be a “serious threat” for 1.7 million Floridians.

Protesters also criticized Bondi on her immigration position.

Homestead, Florida has been the scene of protests outside the center where reports say as many as 1,300 children are being held and it’s reported in Miami shelters, 10 infants to toddler-age children separated from their families are being held. Bondi has previously publicly supported Trump immigration policies.

This is the third very recent event where a high-level Trump administration staffer or close high-profile Republican official has faced public protest.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was shouted out of a D.C. Mexican eatery restaurant last week.

And Trump press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was 86’d without fanfare and quietly, until she later tweeted she was refused service, from the Red Hen, a farm-to-table restaurant in Virginia after the owner asked staff, some LGBT and some immigrants, about how they felt about serving her.

“Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left,” she tweeted.

That tweet is being called illegal by ethics watchdog Walter Shaub.

Who has to give or sacrifice his life for a Christian ?,,a gentile or an unbeliever ? June 24th, 2018
Who has to give life for a Christian ,,
Not a gentile ,,
But only an another Christian.
This system is collapsed because of racism .( Casteism or nationalism or language )
Jesus came to abolish all this .
God bless you.
Keep away from caste or language bond.
If you continue ,,,
You can continue in caste ,,or language ,,
But Jesus will leave you,,
When Spirit of God showered upon us ,,they spoke several languages .a gentile Christian has not been given any permission to embrace his own caste man .,,even if the one is a believer.
Only a Jewish Christian can embrace an another Jewish Christian Christian..,,
Apostles did not give us( gentiles ) permission to embrace gentiles ,,as race or caste or Creed or colour.
So racism is a sin.
But what I feel ,,
Nowadays ,,white Christians ,,,in USA or UK ,,or anywhere ,,
given other ASIANS or Africans ,, Jesus ,,,
They formed governments,,,
They discovered a lot ,,
So may be ,,
They can hug as whites ,,
I don’t know,,,
But ,,
It may also be sin ,,
Because I am not an authority ,,,
But ,,will teach ,,,us every thing,,
But God bless a white who gave Jesus Christ to billions of people.
God bless TRUMP.
God bless missionaries of USA,,and UK,,or Australia,, Germany,,all European countries.
God bless a Jew.
Amen.
Catholic people are members of a Christian community.
Protestant Christians must accept Pope as our Father,, spiritual father.
Because Jesus is with them.
Muslims respect Mohamed more ,,than our Lord JESUS,,,
We can accept Muslims as a member of our Christian family ,,,if they believe Jesus as God.
But they will not ,,,
So we can’t consider them as our family,,,just because they keep their names Mariam,,
It is all humbug,,,
Jews ,Catholics ,,and Protestant are children of a same mother ,,father ,,our God.
But Jews will accept Jesus Christ as real Messiah,,,,
One day ,, someday ,,,
But they must be treated by us same as gentiles in marriage ,,bond.,,,
But this I don’t know ,,,,
But I think I am right,,,,
Bit Catholics and Protestants can marry ,,,
No restrictions,,
Because both of us believe Jesus ,,our savior,,,
God bless Pope ,,
Our father ,,,for Christians and Catholics.
God bless a church,, bride of Jesus,,
Amen.
