Sarah Huckabee Sanders Restaurant Tweet May Have Been an Ethics Violation

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

"I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so", Sanders tweeted on Saturday.

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

"But again, I think President [Donald] Trump has created this".

On Friday, a Facebook user claiming to be a waiter at The Red Hen in Lexington, Virginia said he served Ms. Sanders "for a total of 2 minutes" before she and her party were asked to leave. They can't win the argument so they use nastiness.

Lexington is located about 190 miles (304 kilometers) south west of the nation's capital, in the rural Shenandoah Valley. It's the county seat of Rockbridge County, which went with Trump by a similar margin. When Sanders tweets from the @PressSec account, she is presumed to be speaking in her professional capacity as the press secretary, and her communications from this accounts are subject to government ethics rules. And it is home to Virginia Military Institute and Washington and Lee University.

People were quick to take sides over Sanders's treatment at the Red Hen, a cozy, upscale venue that serves farm-to-table regional food including trout grenobloise, braised leg of lamb, and peach and blackberry shortcake. You shouldn't be asked to leave a restaurant.

A small business in New Jersey, named The Red Hen, has lashed out at internet haters for leaving angry, negative "Vistor Posts" on their company's Facebook page.

The restaurant continued to be flooded on Saturday afternoon with five-star online reviews praising the restaurant's stance - and one-star reviews accusing the owner of "discrimination".

Now, one Democratic lawmaker is calling for an investigation into the alleged violation.

"We've got to get away from this and we've got to concentrate on what is important at this moment", Mr. Cummings said. "They ought to be shut down".

Trump's hardline stance on families trying to enter the United States from Mexico has hardened political differences across America.

The incident comes after Trump's Homeland Security secretary, Kirstjen Nielsen, walked out of a Mexican restaurant in Washington after protesters shouted "Shame" until she left. "If bakers are allowed to refuse to make cakes for gay couples then a restaurant should be allowed to decide who they want to serve, " read one response, referring to a recent Supreme Court judgment upholding the rights of a cake shop that declined to make a cake for a same sex couple, a ruling that was celebrated by most conservative Republicans.
