White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says she was asked to leave restaurantadmin
Sanders says she was told by the owner of The Red Hen in Lexington, Virginia, that she had to “leave because I work for POTUS and I politely left.”
Sanders says the event says far more about the owner of the restaurant than it does about her.
She says, “I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so.”
Sanders’ treatment at the restaurant has created a social media commotion with people on both sides weighing in to provide their critique of the incident.
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
