White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her family were kicked out of a rural Virginia restaurant Friday night, according to Sanders and a server at the Red Hen located in Lexington.
A Virginia liberal activist posted about the incident with images from the server’s Facebook page, “.@PressSec got kicked out of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Va tonight. Apparently the owner didn’t want to serve her and her party out of moral conviction.”
The server, Jaike Foley-Schultz, wrote on Facebook, “I just served Sarah huckabee sanders for a total of 2 minutes before my owner asked her to leave and she complied. Her family left on their own accord, we didn’t actually refuse service or “kick her out”.”
Sanders tweeted Saturday morning about the incident, “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. Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so”
The Red Hen is located near Washington and Lee University in Lexington in southwestern Virginia, about a three hour drive from the White House.
Liberals outraged over President Trump’s enforcement of immigration laws at the border have personalized their anger. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was chased out of a D.C. restaurant by protesters this week who also targeted her at her Alexandria, Virginia home. Senior White House adviser Stephen Miller was also harassed at a restaurant last weekend.
Bush 43 Press Secretary Ari Fleischer weighed in in support of Sanders, “I guess we’re heading into an America with Democrat-only restaurants, which will lead to Republican-only restaurants. Do the fools who threw Sarah out, and the people who cheer them on, really want us to be that kind of country?”
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, ripped the Red Hen for refusing to serve his daughter and family, “Bigotry. On the menu at Red Hen Restaurant in Lexington VA. Or you can ask for the “Hate Plate”. And appetizers are “small plates for small minds””
Me Here....This is another example of the extreme left's double standard. If this had been a homosexual couple instead of Sarah Sanders, the restaurant would be closed and the owner in jail. No moral convictions are allowed there. But in this case, Trump Derangement Syndrome is allowed.
In this part of Virginia there used to be the Jim Crowe Laws. Colored over there....Whites here. Now a new Jim Crowe era is starting. GOP over there and Dems over here.
Segregation is wrong what ever the reason. The owner of the Red Hen owes Sarah Sanders a HUGE apology. The action is so wrong.
This also show the HUGE difference between the Right and Left. Sarah will take no action. If this had been the left, lawyers would be coming out of the woodwork like ants to a picnic to sue on the offendeds behave.
More of the extreme double standard the extreme left is pushing us towards.
