White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed reporting this morning that she was kicked out of a restaurant.
Huckabee Sanders claims it was because of her boss, President 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

TMZ reported earlier this morning on the incident:
The waiter at The Red Hen said, “I just served Sarah Huckabee Sanders for a total of 2 minutes before my owner kicked her out along with 7 of her other family members.”
Others say the owner didn’t want Huckabee Sanders in the restaurant out of “moral conviction.”
This, of course, comes on the heels of Homeland Security Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen being heckled at a Mexican restaurant over the ongoing family separation crisis mere days ago.
