Sanders slams report you as leaving White house
Fox News media analyst Howard Kurtz gives his take on the reports about Sarah Sanders.
White House Press Secretary Sanders ejected was that of a Virginia restaurant on Friday, since she works for the office of President trump — the latest trump card to be official, rushed out of a restaurant because of their political affiliation.
TMZ reports that she was kicked out of the restaurant The Red Hen in Lexington, Virginia, — on “moral grounds” and quoted a waiter who said that Sanders was served “for a total of two minutes, before my owners came together with seven other members of the family.”
Sanders confirmed the events on Twitter, said she was told to leave by the owner, because she worked for the President.
“Your actions say a lot more about you than about me,” she said. “I always do my best to treat people, even those I don’t agree with, respectfully, and will continue to do so.”
Last night I was told to leave by the owner of the Red hen in Lexington, Virginia, because I work for @POTUS and I politely left. Your actions say a lot more about you than about me. I always do my best to treat people, even those I don’t agree with, respectfully, and will continue to do so

After the first reports of the incident emerged, users took to the Red Hen s ‘ Facebook-and Yelp-to bombard sites with one-star reviews.
“Everyone should boycott this restaurant. Put you out of business. Asks to leave a number of readers, because she is a Republican, repugnant,” a Yelp post said.
While the new “reviews” were consistently negative, the restaurant has some support of Trump’s opponents — with a Red hen, the decision was “really awesome.”
“If some have the right to refuse service, gay’s [sic] then said YES, the other is immoral to lie to the American people, by WH press conferences,” a five-star rating on Facebook.
Sanders also got support from her father, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who sprinkled the restaurant “bigotry.”
“Bigotry. On the menu at Red hen Restaurant in Lexington, VA. Or you can ask for the “hate plate”. And appetizers are the “small plates for the small spirit,” he tweeted.

Calls to the restaurant went to Voicemail, which was full. The controversy sparked a panic tweet from the (uninvolved), the Red hen in Washington, DC, found that it had nothing to do with the incident.
Good morning! @PressSec went to the bystanders @RedHenLex last night, not to our DC-based restaurant.
