By Townhall. Press Secretary Sarah Sanders has found herself another unlikely defender after getting booted from a Virginia restaurant simply for working for the Trump administration: Former President Bill Clinton.
On Tuesday, Clinton stopped by “The Daily Show” to promote his new book, “The President Is Missing,” which he co-authored with famed thriller novelist, James Patterson. However, it didn’t take long for host Trevor Noah to shift the conversation to today’s debate about civility and whether or not Sanders deserved to be kicked out of a restaurant because of her political affiliations.
“That’s a decision for the restaurant owner to make,” Clinton started out.
“But,” he continued, “what I’d like to point out is, would it be better if that didn’t happen? I think it would.” . . .
“I read the article about the lady who owned the restaurant,” he told Noah, “and I wound up with a lot of respect for the way for the way she debated it. But I also had a lot of respect for the way Sarah Huckabee Sanders handled it. I mean, she was very dignified, she didn’t chew them out, she didn’t pitch a fight, she didn’t call them ‘an immigrant-loving thug’ or whatever. She just got up and left—and offered to pay.” (Read more from “Sarah Sanders Finds Herself Another Unlikely Defender After Restaurant Incident” HERE)
