Restaurant asks Trump spokesman Sarah Sanders to leave

The Red Hen restaurant in Lexington Virginia turned away White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders because she works for President Donald Trump

Meanwhile, a Red Hen restaurant in CT seems to have removed its Facebook page altogether, while posting on its Google page that it also has no affiliation with the Virginia restaurant at the center of the controversy. I said, "I'd like to ask you to leave'".

Shaub also suggested it was hypocritical for conservatives to complain about the Red Hen management's actions while supporting the recent Supreme Court decision in favor of a Colorado baker who refused to make a bake for a same-sex couple's wedding because of his religious beliefs.

A Red Hen eatery in Washington took to social media to let people know they aren't affiliated with the Lexington restaurant.

Sanders' father, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, called it "bigotry" on Twitter. Walter Shaub, former director of the OGE, criticized Sanders' misuse of her government position on Twitter, comparing it to "the same as if an ATF agent pulled out his badge when a restaurant tried to throw him/her out". "I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so", Sanders tweeted on Saturday.

"I would have done the same thing again", Wilkinson told the Post. Mary Tyler Moreno posted this missive: "Chili's - "I want my baby back baby back baby back, no my actual baby back".

With 20 minutes left, Gamboa made his first mistake and Neymar should have capitalised. The first goal was all that Brazil needed to switch to attack mode.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was booted from a Virginia restaurant because she works for President Donald Trump, setting off a fierce debate about whether politics should play a role in how administration officials are treated in public. "This appeared to be one".

Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings said Sunday the restaurant owner should have served Sanders.

"I would think that the president should comply with the securities laws, comply with the ethics laws and the United States Constitution just like everyone else", he added. A group of young socialists who organizing the heckling - led by a paralegal who works for the justice department - called for similar protests against administration officials over its immigration policy.

Ari Fleischer, who was a press secretary for President George W. Bush, tweeted Saturday: "I guess we're heading into an America with Democrat-only restaurants, which will lead to Republican-only restaurants".

The incident comes days after protesters assailed Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen at a Mexican restaurant in downtown Washington, just as the administration was coming under fire for its policy of separating undocumented immigrant families at the USA border with Mexico.
