Sarah Huckabee Sanders Whines After Being Removed From Restaurant
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders whined on Twitter that she was kicked out of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, on June 22 because she works for President Donald Trump:
Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left. Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so

In response, Sanders was mocked on Twitter by comedian Ricky Gervais and others:
First mothers are forcibly separated from their children and now Sarah is separated from her food for a few moments. The trauma caused in the second case is definitely worse. https://t.co/9hXoL78tJz

How f***ing dare you use your official account to target a private individual for availing themselves of the right YOUR party pushed?
Welcome to the receiving end of “moral objections”.
May it not be the last time.

Yeah I imagine being down with caging children will piss a few people off like.

If I ever go to Lexington, Va, I will make sure to dine at the Red Hen. Any restaurant willing to take a stand against the lying Bigly mouthpiece is great in my book. Your actions have consequences, Sarah. Deal with it.

With all due respect, Ms. Sanders, I think you are confused about what the word “respectfully” means.

Hey I heard some of your comments to the press, you don’t treat people respectfully! #SingleStagingAreaNow

I thought you, and your boss, agree with business owners refusing to serve people they don’t agree with?
If not, there are a lot of gay people that want cakes to be made for them.#Hypocrisy

Maybe you should try not lying

No. It’s because you’re terrible.

What on earth would make you expect “respectful” treatment from someone who listens to you lying to them nearly every day? I sincerely hope you and all Trump’s little liars see much more human reaction in future.

You treat several of the reporters that you don’t agree with very disrespectfully on live TV.

You Kicked out:
Kids who need health insurance
Poor people who need a safety net
Because you are a piece of S.
I hope the whole country bans you.
Maybe then it will hit you.

Also there are children in cages, your buddies are still trying to ruin health insurance for everyone, the rich got a giant tax cut, your boss is a criminal, puerto rico is still fucked and #Flint doesn’t have clean water still.
STFU about your dinner plans.
