Sarah Sanders: Restaurant kicked me out because of Trump

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders speaks during a press briefing in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House in Washington D.C. on Thursday

"Or you can ask for the 'Hate Plate, '" Mr Huckabee said in a tweet, quickly generating 2,000 replies in about 30 minutes.

TheWashington Post says that Lexington had voted overwhelmingly against Trump, although the 72-year-old president won Lexington's county (Rockridge) with a similar number of votes.

"I am concerned with what it can do in the long-term", Pope said of the negative reviews, including 92 one-star reviews on Facebook.

As has become common when a business stirs up controversy, the restaurant's Yelp and Facebook pages have been flooded by reviewers weighing in on Sanders being given the boot. Sanders was dining at The Red Hen, a farm-to-table restaurant in Lexington, Virginia which serves "inspired Shenandoah cuisine".

It was the second night in recent days that a member of the Trump administration was hounded from a restaurant. Of course, unlike people of color or the LGBT community, there's actually something they can do - resign. The restaurant's owner, Stephanie Wilkinson, explained to the Washington Post why she turned Sanders and her family out of the restaurant.

Between the fury and fawning of 2,000 people who nearly certainly had not eaten at the restaurant, the Red Hen's Yelp reviews nearly instantly averaged out to two-and-a-half stars.

Sanders wasn't the first official to be personally confronted with public anger over the administration's immigration policy.

In the U.S., the slang term "86" or "to be 86ed" refers to being ejected from a restaurant or refused service.

Saudi women are now driving as longstanding ban ends
While some quietly oppose the decision, there are men who are openly embracing the greater rights being granted to Saudi women. The end of the controversial ban brings the ultra-conservative Gulf nation into line with the rest of the world .

"She said Ms Sanders immediate response was: "'That's fine.

A restaurant in Washington, D.C., also named the Red Hen said that it has no affiliation with the restaurant in Virginia.

Celebrities were outraged by Sanders' tweet and shared an array of reactions.

Ms Nielsen left the dinner early.

Reviewers initially confused the Virginia restaurant with one by the same name in DC.

She didn't know what the reception would be like among her neighbors. "This is not going to be a giant surprise to anyone". Mike Huckabee, swiftly squashed any further goodwill with an unfunny and barely coherent tweet of his own.

"Whatever happens, we will soldier on", Wilkinson said. "Cant wait to visit this establishment when I pass thru in July. This appeared to be one". He previously worked for the Dallas Morning News.
