President Trump Unloads on “Dirty” Red Hen Restaurant That Tossed Sarah Sanders and Her Family
President Donald Trump blasted the Red Hen restaurant located in Lexington, Virginia over the owner and staff kicking out White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders Friday night.
“The Red Hen Restaurant should focus more on cleaning its filthy canopies, doors and windows (badly needs a paint job) rather than refusing to serve a fine person like Sarah Huckabee Sanders. I always had a rule, if a restaurant is dirty on the outside, it is dirty on the inside!”

Sanders wrote about the incident Saturday after it was publicized on Facebook by restaurant employees. The owner later told the media she asked Sanders to leave after her SJW staff told her they wanted Sanders kicked out.
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

Red Hen owner Stephanie Wilkinson is a #HYPOCRITE! She claims to Love her Enemy, even posted it for all to see, but gave Sarah the boot out of her restaurant?! #Liberals are all about equality as long as it supports their narrative! #Restaurants4Sarah pic.twitter.com/eYiqCcj6dX

Red Hen owner Stephanie Wilkinson told the Washington Post on Saturday:
Several Red Hen employees are gay, she said. They knew Sanders had defended Trump’s desire to bar transgender people from the military. This month, they had all watched her evade questions and defend a Trump policy that caused migrant children to be separated from their parents.
“Tell me what you want me to do. I can ask her to leave,” Wilkinson told her staff, she said. “They said ‘yes.’ ”
…“I was babbling a little, but I got my point across in a polite and direct fashion,” Wilkinson said. “I explained that the restaurant has certain standards that I feel it has to uphold, such as honesty, and compassion, and cooperation.
“I said, ‘I’d like to ask you to leave.’ ”
