Social media light up after restaurant dissed Sarah Huckabee Sanders

Sarah Huckabee Sanders

Democratic lawmaker calls for ethics investigation of Sarah Sanders for using White House Twitter account to attack restaurant

"Her actions say far more about her than about me", Sanders wrote.

The Washington Post editorial board defended White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Sunday after she was kicked out of a Virginia restaurant. "On the menu at Red Hen Restaurant in Lexington VA".

"I have no sympathy for these people that are in this administration who know it is wrong what they're doing on so many fronts but they tend to not want to confront this president", Waters said at a Los Angeles rally on Saturday.

Restaurant owner Stephanie Wilkinson told The Washington Post that Sanders was told to leave because the business has "certain standards" to uphold, "such as honesty and compassion and cooperation". They were asked to leave by the owner, and Sanders later confirmed the incident, saying she left quietly and that the request to leave was blamed on her affiliation with President Donald Trump.

Sanders addressed the controversy the next morning, explaining that she had politely departed the restaurant after the owner asked her to leave.

"I'm not a huge fan of confrontation", Ms Wilkinson said.

Saudi Arabia is among the most conservative countries in the world and women have traditionally had much fewer rights than men. Now she can driver herself to work - or anywhere she wants to go. "He will move the country (forward) faster", she said.

Critics and supporters have since bombarded the restaurant's Yelp page.

Walter Shaub, who left the Trump administration a year ago after five years as head of the ethics office, posted an annoyed tweet in response to Sanders' comment, pointing out that it's a "clear violation" of federal ethics law to name a specific business with the intent of personal gain or retaliation.

"This feels like the moment in our democracy when people have to make uncomfortable actions and decisions to uphold their morals", she said. "I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so", Sanders tweeted. "This appeared to be one".

In the wake of the widely despised policy to separate immigrant children from their parents at the US border, there has been a grassroots movement against members of Trump's administration, who are now being hounded in public.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was hounded by protesters at a Mexican restaurant near the White House last week.

"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..."
