The Virginia restaurant whose manager rudely booted White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders from its premises Friday evening for political reasons appears to have had its website hacked, perhaps in retaliation for Sanders’ mistreatment.
Searching for “Red Hen Lexington Virginia” in Bing specifically brought up the following results as of Sunday morning:
Note the description of erectile dysfunction that appeared under “Menu.”
An analysis of the website further revealed the following advertisement for Viagra hidden in the “Menu” page’s source code:
What remained unclear was when exactly this source code first appeared at the Red Hen’s website. It was possible the website had been hacked before the incident with Sanders.
News of this apparent hack first appeared on the Internet sometime Saturday evening, a day after the owner of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington kicked Sanders out of her restaurant for political reasons.
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

Speaking with The Washington Post early Saturday evening, the restaurant’s owner revealed that she had booted Sanders for performing the duties of her job as press secretary and vociferously defending President Donald Trump’s sometimes controversial policy decisions, including his “zero tolerance” policy toward illegal immigration.
“I’m not a huge fan of confrontation. I have a business, and I want the business to thrive. This feels like the moment in our democracy when people have to make uncomfortable actions and decisions to uphold their morals,” owner Stephanie Wilkinson said.
Booting out a mother of three because you take issue with her career choice apparently counts as a moral decision to Miss Wilkinson …
Sanders’ father, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, feels otherwise:
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

Wilkinson continued by describing exactly what happened Friday evening. She explained that after Sanders arrived at the restaurant, she huddled with her employees to get their opinion on what she ought to do.
“Tell me what you want me to do. I can ask her to leave,” she reportedly told her staff.
After her staff said yes, she decided to pull Sanders outside and request that she leave.
“I explained that the restaurant has certain standards that I feel it has to uphold, such as honesty, and compassion, and cooperation. I said, ‘I’d like to ask you to leave,'” she explained.
This clear-cut bigotry occurred only days after a group of radical left-wingers successfully drove Homeland Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen out of a restaurant near the White House via verbal harassment and insults.
What was Nielsen’s sin? Enforcing America’s federal immigration laws.
Given the profound distaste liberals seem to have for the rule of law, they therefore have no right to complain about the Red Hen’s website being hacked. After all, the people who hacked it were criminals, and according to leftist orthodoxy, bringing criminals to justice is oh so wrong.
