After issuing a statement that she was asked to leave a restaurant in Virginia, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is facing accusations that she may have committed an ethics violation because her tweet came from her official @PressSec Twitter account.
Contrary to what Trump supporters are suggesting, Sanders was not refused service.
The waiter who served her and her family posted on Facebook:
If Trump supporters can cheer bakers refusing to bake cakes for same-sex weddings, the same principle applies to Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her family.
Trump supporters don’t get to claim that businesses can legally discriminate and then become outraged when Sarah Huckabee Sanders is asked to leave a restaurant, which by the way, is not the same thing as being refused service. The restaurant or any other business has a right to ask a customer to leave.
It isn’t like she was refused service or some passed a law telling her where she can and can’t go.
Trump supporters can’t have it both ways. They can’t support bathroom bills, family separations, and discrimination against gay people, but be outraged when a restaurant owner decides that they would rather not have Sanders in their establishment.
Sanders has helped to further the divide this country, so she was reaping what she had sown when she was asked to leave the restaurant.
