Discrimination - Sarah Sanders Forced To Leave Restaurant Because She Works For Trump

You would think that having the prestigious role of White House press secretary would carry with it some modicum of respect from American citizens and while the majority do support press secretary Sarah Sanders there are those who do not. One restaurant owner in Lexington, Virginia even refused Sanders services and asked her to leave just because she works for President Trump.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for <a href="https://twitter.com/POTUS?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@POTUS</a> and I politely left.

Sanders tweeted Saturday, "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 despicable treatment of the press secretary is astounding and should not be tolerated, especially in a social justice culture that is supposedly seeking to eliminate discrimination.

Sanders wasn't the only one who tweeted about the incident, a server at the restaurant "The Red Hen" located some 200 miles from Washington D.C., also weighed in on the controversy. The tweet was from a user who goes by the name Brennan Gilmore and posted a photo of the order that she placed and the location of the restaurant. Gilmore wrote, "@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 Red Hen" is owned by Democrat Stephanie Wilkinson who tried to justify throwing Sanders and her family out of the restaurant. "I'm not a huge fan of confrontation. 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." The restaurant is located in Lexington, Virginia which is the home of the Virginia Military Institute and Washington and Lee University.

Former Fox News host and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee who is Sanders' father accused "The Red Hen" of bigotry for kicking his daughter out of the restaurant. Huckabee tweeted, "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'."

Surprise the Owner is a Cousin of a Famous ANTI-TRUMPER Liberal named Meryl Streep.

The family seems to be Liberal Left.

Ms. Streep gave a speech at the 2016 Democratic National Convention in support of presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. An has voiced ANTI-TRUMP hate before and since losing.

In short just another Hollywood Liberal-Socialist family member applying the usual Liberal Double Standard in regards to issues and discrimination. An violating Federal and State laws.

Surprise the Owner is a Cousin of a Famous ANTI-TRUMPER Liberal named Meryl Streep.

The whole family seems to be far Left Liberal. In case any of you forgot.

Ms. Streep gave a speech at the 2016 Democratic National Convention in support of presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

However, given the situational "general" similarity to the Star Bucks incident of a few weeks ago …

Once again we see Liberal-Socialist family applying the usual Liberal Double Standard in regards to issues and discrimination.

All while violating State and Federal laws.

The Red Hen could lose its Business License for this discrimination because it violates the Va. Law.
