Democratic Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, who has been praising protesters day after day following night after night of violence, was booed by the rioters he attempted to join Wednesday night. Wheeler was also urged to resign in a slide projected on the side of an embattled downtown building. He mingled with demonstrators to the point of being tear-gassed along with them, then later left as protesters scuffled with the mayor’s security detail, Fox News reported. After Wheeler was tucked safely inside a downtown building, protesters threw water bottles and other objects at the door to the building, according to a series of tweets from Mike Baker, a reporter for The New York Times.
