Patterico's Pontifications


Restaurant Asks Sarah Sanders to Leave on Account of the Trumpiness

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 1:45 pm


White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said she was told to leave a Virginia restaurant because she works for President Donald Trump.

Sanders wrote on Twitter on Saturday that the owner of Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, asked her to leave because of who she works for.

“Her actions say far more about her than about me,” Sanders tweeted. “I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so.”

A restaurant should have the right to serve, or not serve, anyone they like. Patrons should have the right to decide that they won’t eat at establishments that refuse service to someone because of their political beliefs.

A man who says he was Sanders’ waiter at the farm-to-table restaurant wrote on Facebook that he only served her for a couple minutes before the owner “asked her to leave and she complied.”

“Her family left on their own accord, we didn’t actually refuse service or ‘kick her out,'” he wrote in the Facebook post.

Of course the restaurant kicked her out. If she’s asked to leave and refuses, she’s trespassing. Don’t pretend management didn’t kick her out. They absolutely did.

Another step towards the politicization of literally everything.
