Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted about being kicked out of a restaurant just because she worked for Trump.
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— Kayleigh McEnany (@PressSec) June 23, 2018
So now Trump supporters are leaving the restaurant 1 star reviews, while Trump haters are leaving 5 star reviews! I guess it evens out.
Jaike Foley-Schultz, a waiter at the restaurant, posted on Facebook that he served Sanders and her family “for a total of 2 minutes” before the owner asked the press secretary’s party to leave.
Trump critics and supporters alike took to the restaurant’s Facebook and Yelp pages to leave one- or five-star reviews responding to the incident.
“If you are a whining liberal feel free to eat here, if you are a TRUE AMERICAN stay away,” one Facebook user wrote.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, a five-star Yelp review read: “The best. I’ve heard that they serve crow to those deserving of it.”
Yup, this is where we are – we’re self-segregating according to political belief!! What bitter irony.
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” https://t.co/rHEVdcQwwh— Gov. Mike Huckabee (@GovMikeHuckabee) June 23, 2018
BIGOTRY!! Wait, aren’t we the same people who want to let gays go without wedding cakes? Oh well who cares, let’s #MAGA!!!
A small business owner makes a decision that she doesn't want a liar who contributes to the hate in this country to dine at her establishment and Sarah from her official White House account attacks her. Punching down is what the White House does.— Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) June 23, 2018
Please support the Red Hen. https://t.co/TflhgHJhWk
And everyone is attacking the wrong restaurant LOL!
The restaurant owner says she kicked her out over transgenders!!
Stephanie Wilkinson, co-owner of The Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Va., told The Washington Post on Saturday that Sanders’s support of President Trump’s desire to ban transgender people from the military, in particular, was antithetical to her beliefs.
The restaurant employs several LGBT employees, Wilkinson said, some of whom voiced concerns over serving Sanders because of her previous comments defending Trump’s proposed ban.
“I’m not a huge fan of confrontation,” Wilkinson added. “I have a business, and I want the business to thrive. This feels like the moment in our democracy when people have to make uncomfortable actions and decisions to uphold their morals.”
Wilkinson told the Post Sanders worked in an administration that is “inhumane and unethical.”
She added that the Trump administration’s policy of separating migrant families who are apprehended illegally entering the U.S. also contributed to her staff’s concerns.
AND she says her staff told her to do it!!!
“Tell me what you want me to do. I can ask her to leave,” Wilkinson said she told her staff. “They said yes.”
Dang. You LGBT people are mean!!!
