“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 (sic),” she tweeted.

Following Sarah’ tweet, people slammed the Red hen restaurant on its Facebook page. The restaurant is located about 180 miles southwest of Washington DC.
Jaike Foley-Schultz, who described himself as the waiter of the restaurant, wrote on Facebook that he had just served Sarah before she was asked to leave by the owner of the restaurant.
Sarah’s father, governor and would-be comedian Mike Huckabee, condemned the behavior of the restaurant’s owner on Twitter, saying one could order “bigotry” or the “Hate Plate” on the menu.
This is the second such incident in recent days that a member of the Trump administration has been hounded from a restaurant. On Tuesday, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was heckled from a Mexican restaurant in Washington in a similar matter.
