That intolerance was on gross display over the weekend when it was revealed that the liberal owner of a small restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, had kicked out White House press secretary Sarah Sanders and her dinner party rather than tolerantly serve a member of the Trump administration with whom they disagree politically.
The incident first came to light when an employee of the Red Hen restaurant bragged on social media about how his owner had kicked out Sanders, and Sanders later responded with a tweet that provided her side of the account.
The Washington Post interviewed the restaurant owner, Stephanie Wilkinson, and reported that everything had been handled peacefully, politely and without much a scene being caused.
But in a radio interview Monday with talk show host Laura Ingraham, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee — father of the press secretary — revealed another part of the story that had conveniently been left out of the account by WaPo and the restaurateur, according to Mediaite.
The initial confrontation in the Red Hen may have been handled smoothly and with politeness, but it apparently didn’t end there, as the owner of the Red Hen is alleged to have followed Sanders’ in-laws who had been with her at the Red Hen to another restaurant and continued to harass them there.
