Social media light up after restaurant dissed Sarah Huckabee Sanders

Democratic lawmaker calls for ethics investigation of Sarah Sanders for using White House Twitter account to attack restaurant

But in a twist, the small town of Lexington (population 7000), where Red Hen is located, voted against Trump.

Meanwhile, an unaffiliated restaurant with the same name in Washington D.C., has also been caught in the crossfire and is distancing itself from the scandal.

Sarah Sanders, the White House's press secretary, was told by a restaurant owner to leave because she works for President Donald Trump.

"Showing the true love and tolerance of the Left", commented Rick Elliott.

Sanders's response, according to Wilkinson, was: "That's fine". "They could have invited her to tell her side of the story and she could have listened to their concerns".

"Hateful ownership", one person posted.

"If it's OK for a baker to refuse service to LGBTQ because of their sexual identification, then why shouldn't it be OK for a restaurant to refuse service because of their political identification?" "They said "yes", Wilkinson said to The Washington Post.

On Twitter, some social commentators took to dark humor.

"Tell me what you want me to do".

The incident at Red Hen comes days after Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was forced to leave a restaurant by protesters.

Deproto, who has owned the restaurant for five years, still had no idea what had happened at the Virginia establishment by 11 a.m. Saturday, when a pair of Google messages, like the first raindrops arriving ahead of a storm, informed her people were boycotting her restaurant. "We just felt there are moments in time when people need to live their convictions. This appeared to be one".

The media caught wind of the incident after a restaurant employee who served Sanders posted about it on Facebook. "Or you can ask for the 'Hate Plate, '" Huckabee said in a tweet, quickly generating 2,000 replies in about 30 minutes.

"As far as politics go, I'll make the calls to my representatives; I'll go to a march", she said.

"I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so", Sanders said in the tweet from her official account, which generated 22,000 replies in about an hour.

Wilkinson said she bore in mind the Trump's administrations agenda to ban transgender people from entering the military and his zero tolerance policy that separated migrant families at the border in taking her poll.

The incident comes days after protesters assailed Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen at a Mexican restaurant in downtown Washington, just as the administration was coming under fire for its policy of separating undocumented immigrant families at the USA border with Mexico.

"We support our own here, great little community we have", he said.
