Colbert Blasts Sarah Sanders: ‘You Work For Donald Trump, You Don’t Even Treat Yourself With Respect’
Stephen Colbert slammed Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders for her response to being kicked out of the Red Hen restaurant over the weekend.
Colbert began by saying his “heart goes out to her” because she was “separated from her appetizer.”
“She doesn’t even know where it is right now!” Colbert exclaimed. “What if it’s getting cold?!?”
The Late Show host then went after Sanders for the tweet she made addressing the ordeal, specifically when she claimed she does her best to treat people she even disagrees with “respectfully.”
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

“What do you mean you treat everybody with respect?” You work for Donald Trump! You don’t even treat yourself with respect.”
Colbert went on to say that he believes “everyone should follow their own conscience” and that while he can “understand” why some would celebrate the Red Hen’s decision to kick out Sarah Sanders, he expressed that “denying service to people you don’t agree with” is a “slippery slope.”
“Because pretty soon, we would just have liberal-only restaurants and conservative restaurants, and it’ll be a nightmare finding a place where your whole family can eat,” Colbert warned his audience.
