Reviewers from both sides of the aisle flooded a Virginia restaurant’s Facebook and Yelp pages with one- and five-star reviews after a server at the restaurant claimed his boss kicked out White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Jaike Foley-Schultz, who says he is a waiter at the Lexington restaurant The Red Hen, posted on Facebook that his boss kicked out the press secretary and her party.

“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,” he wrote.

The post went viral when the director of Clean Virginia, a left-leaning energy focused nonprofit, shared the post on Twitter, along with a handwritten note purportedly from the restaurant that reads, among other things, “86 — Sara Huckabee Sanders.”

“86” is restaurant industry slang meaning “throw out” or “get rid of.”

Sanders confirmed the incident in a tweet, saying that the restaurant owner’s decision to ask her to leave says “far more about her than about me.”

“Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for [President Trump] and I politely left,” Sanders tweeted. “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.”

The Red Hen’s Facebook and Yelp pages were soon bombarded with reviews from people on opposite ends of the political spectrum. While some praised the restaurant for taking a stand against the Trump administration, many others blasted the owner for being “intolerant.”

“If you are a whining liberal feel free to eat here, if you are a TRUE AMERICAN stay away,” wrote one Facebook reviewer, while another wrote: “Thank you for not serving that liar.”


“I won’t spend a dime in this place,” wrote another reviewer. “The owner is a disgusting human being whose absurd liberalism has driven him to lunacy … Let’s hope your ‘moral convictions’ can pay your bills.”

One five-star review on Yelp read: “The best. I’ve heard that they serve crow to those deserving of it.”

The report comes just days after two other members of the Trump administration — Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and White House senior adviser Stephen Miller — were forced to leave restaurants due to protests of the administration’s immigration policies.
