Restaurant refuses to serve Trump spokeswoman

The Virginia restaurant owner who wouldn't serve Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended the ouster - as critics on Sunday slammed the refusal. But in a twist, the small town of Lexington (population 7000), where Red Hen is located, voted against Trump.

At least one lawmaker has formally called for an ethics investigation into Sarah Huckabee Sanders' tweet telling the story of how she got kicked out of a Virginia restaurant.

DeProto said she prefers to spend her time in the kitchen cooking for her patrons, but she said she has spent the past two days fielding more than just orders. The White House said Trump stayed away from Barbara Bush's funeral in April "out of respect to avoid creating a disruption due to added security, " amid speculation that he had been asked to stay away.

"Honest Q: so the left thinks it's not OK to refuse service wrt sexual orientation (NOT what SCOTUS decided BTW) but at the same time believes that it *is* OK to refuse service based on political affiliation and personal disagreement?"

We saw this same controversy arise when White House counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway was accused of breaking this rule after she invited Americans to purchase Ivanka Trump-branded products on a 2017 episode of Fox & Friends.

Sanders could have posted her Red Hen statement to her personal Twitter account and would have been in compliance. These are the reasons this place did not want to serve you. In fact, he said they serve every person who walks through the door no matter what.

"I explained that the restaurant has certain standards that I feel it has to uphold, such as honesty, and compassion, and cooperation", the owner explained.

After she arrived and saw Sanders and company dining on a cheese board, she halted the workers in the kitchen, who were preparing the party's main course, to ask them how they felt. "I said, "No. It's on the house", Wilkinson said.

"This feels like the moment in our democracy when people have to make uncomfortable actions and decisions to uphold their morals", she said.

Wilkinson said she made the decision knowing there could be backlash that hurt her business.

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. In it they argue that Sanders, Kirstjen Nielsen, and Stephen Miller - all public faces of the administrations widely condemned immigration policy - should be left alone and "allowed to eat dinner in peace".
