Sarah Sanders says she was told to leave Virginia restaurant

Wilkinson said she gave staff members the final decision on whether or not to kick out the Sanders family.

Sanders took the high road in on Twitter after the incident.

"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?"

Owner of the Red Hen in Old Saybrook, Shelley DeProto, told Channel 3 on Sunday that she and her employees have been getting non-stop phone messages and social media posts full of hatred and anger only because of its name, even though DeProto's restaurant has no connection to the restaurant in Virginia.

While some users have been trying to correct these non-patrons, the restaurant tried to set the record straight further on Saturday, writing, "Kindly check your facts before you erroneously defame an innocent business on Facebook in attempt to destroy their business where they welcome all, irrespective of their race, religion, views or opinions".

"I always had a rule", Trump said.

Slate jumped on the outrage bandwagon with a piece headlined "Ex-White House Ethics Chief: Sanders' Tweet on Restaurant Eviction Violates the Law".

After news broke of Sanders' Red Hen Encounter - she arrived later than the rest of her party and the owner comped all they had consumed - Red Hen's Yelp page was bombed both by Trump supporters and never-Trumpers. That she publicly defended the president's cruelest policies, and that that could not stand.

And she knew - she believed - that Sarah Huckabee Sanders worked in the service of an "inhumane and unethical" administration.

"I hope the people quit eating at your restaurant and you have to go out of business".

If that means bringing the hammer of the presidency of the United States down on some poor schmoe in Lexington, Virginia, that's fine.

DeProto said hundreds of people called, messaged, and made fake reservations her Old Saybrook restaurant. "This feels like the moment in our democracy when people have to make uncomfortable actions and decisions to uphold their morals".

"The increasing personal nastiness toward people who work for President Trump reflects the left's understanding that they are losing", Gingrich said in a tweet.

"I was babbling a little, but I got my point across in a polite and direct fashion", Wilkinson told the Washington Post.

The White House has faced a backlash in recent weeks over its policy of separating children from their undocumented migrant parents at the US border and holding them in detention facilities.
