Sarah Sanders confirmed that she was kicked out of a Virginia restaurant because she works for President Donald Trump.
But the White House press secretary noted that the restaurant owner’s actions “say far more about her than about me.”
A server at the Lexington restaurant The Red Hen shared in a now-viral post on Facebook that his boss kicked out Sanders and her party.
“I just served Sarah huckabee sanders for a total of 2 minutes,” he wrote.
The director of leftist nonprofit, Clean Virginia, shared the post on Twitter along with a handwritten note allegedly from the restaurant that read to “86” – or get rid of – Sanders.

Sanders tweeted about the incident on Saturday, showing again how she rises above the shameful behavior of the left.
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 report of the insulting treatment came days after socialists staged a protest inside the very restaurant where Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was dining. The manager at that Washington, D.C. eatery not only did nothing while the protesters disrupted diners, he declared he was “happy about what happened.”
Sanders’ father, former governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee tweeted a response to the Red Hen’s “bigotry.”
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” https://t.co/rHEVdcQwwh

The treatment of Sanders sparked reaction from both sides of the aisle as the Red Hen’s Facebook and Yelp pages were inundated with reviews praising and condemning the manager’s actions.
“If you are a whining liberal feel free to eat here, if you are a TRUE AMERICAN stay away,” wrote another person on Facebook
“THANK YOU to the owner for doing that! More businesses should toss out these Nazi kidnappers and child abusers. The ever-pious, ever-hypocritical SHS has been shilling and lying to the public for over a year. Enough already,” another wrote.
“The food was good, the service was friendly and prompt, and the prices to quality ratio was outstanding,” one five-star review on Yelp read. “Also, in recent news, they apparently don’t serve bearers of false witness, who use their positions of influence to damage the fabric of American public life. So, that’s a plus.”
“Thank you for doing the right thing. This administration deserves to be shamed and shunned everywhere they go,” read another.
But many others flooded the Yelp page with one-star reviews, calling out the “bigoted and prejudiced” management.
“Intolerance and hate is not something I am looking to eat. I own a business and would never CONSIDER treating someone like this based on who their boss is or their political views?” wrote a one-star reviewer. “This place should be ashamed of themselves.”
