White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said she was told to leave a Virginia restaurant because she works for Donald Trump.
Sanders tweeted Saturday that she was told by the female owner of the Red Hen in Lexington, VA Friday night she had to go because of her ties to Trump.
The restaurant’s Facebook page was apparently overwhelmed with comments supporting Sanders and criticizing the eatery located about three hours southwest of Washington, D.C., USA Today reported. The restaurant didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.
The incident was the second time this week that a Trump administration staffer was harassed while dining out. On Tuesday, protesters booed and yelled “end family separation” at Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen while she ate at a Mexican restaurant in Washington.
The protesters were referring to a policy that required arresting undocumented immigrants illegally crossing the U.S. border. The policy also required separating children from adults who illegally crossed the border.
Trump reversed the policy on Wednesday. Now there’s some confusion as federal officials are trying to figure out what to do with families arrested at the U.S.-Mexican border and being held before having their cases heard by immigration officials. The Pentagon has identified bases near the border where up to 20,000 people could be held, the newspaper said.
Meanwhile, Sanders’ father, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, rushed to the defense of his daughter on Twitter on Saturday.
“Bigotry. On the menu at Red Hen Restaurant in Lexington VA. Or you can ask for the “Hate Plate,” he tweeted. “And appetizers are “small plates for small minds.”
Sorry Sarah.. But, your white privilege has been revoked here like Tomi Lahren.. and the nerve of a Nielsen to eat at a Latino restaurant after supporting the separation of Latino parents from their children and enslaving them in detention camps.. Donald Dump is a modern day Hitler..
