White House press secretary says asked to leave…

A fierce review feud erupted on the site after the owner of The Red Hen in Lexington, Virginia reportedly asked Ms Sanders to leave the restaurant because she worked for US President Donald Trump.

Yesterday, the owner of the Red Hen confirmed the incident and said she stood by her decision to refuse service to Ms Sanders, the Washington Post reported.

The press secretary's tweet about her treatment created a social media firestorm that is still going on at this hour - there are more than 24,000 retweets of her original message. "Or you can ask for the 'Hate Plate, '" Huckabee said in a tweet, quickly generating 2,000 replies in about 30 minutes. "And appetizers are 'small plates for small minds, '" he posted Saturday. "Didn't you morons get your panties in a wad defending the baker that didn't want to make cakes for gay couples?"

The restaurant employs several LGBT employees, some of whom voices concerns over having to serve Sanders, Wilkinson told The Washington Post. "Then the hostess comes to me and says, 'people are calling and yelling and swearing'". Mike Huckabee, blasted the owners of Red Hen, posting on Twitter: "Bigotry".

The bickering between the two groups became so drawn-out that earlier today, Yelp themselves stepped in and announced that they would be "cleaning up" The Red Hen's page, and removing reviews that are clearly fake and ideologically-motivated.

At The Red Hen restaurant in Swedesboro Saturday morning, staff was preparing for a private event when Operating Manager Elizabeth Pope noticed something odd on the restaurant's Facebook page: tons of angry comments and reviews.




With the staff and the owner on the same page, the only thing which was left to be done was to break it to Sanders that she should call it a night.

A New Jersey man wrote a missive aimed at the owner, saying, "your food is awful and soon the board of health will be closing you down due to your cockroach infested establishment filled with DUMOCRATS!"

And according to the New York Post, White House aide Stephen Miller, a key architect of Trump's immigration policy, was called a "fascist" by a fellow customer last weekend at a hip south-of-the-border eatery in D.C.

The chef said that the staff was a bit concerned. "I explained that the restaurant has certain standards that I feel it has to uphold".

The protesters were referring to a policy that required arresting undocumented immigrants illegally crossing the USA border.

Maybe this turnabout from The Red Hen will actually give Sarah Huckabee Sanders a little bit of empathy. The Deparment of Homeland Security said late Saturday it reunited 522 immigrant children who were separated from their families, and still has roughly 1,500 kids to locate and reunite.
