In light of the Trump administration’s despicable policy of separating poor children from their parents and locking them in cages, an increasing number of people are fighting back by making it extremely uncomfortable for officials to enjoy their private lives in peace while babies cry without their mothers.
In one of the latest “not in my name” protests, a Virginia restaurant owner reportedly kicked White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and seven members of her family out of the establishment.
Jaike Foley-Schultz, a waiter at The Red Hen in Lexington, VA, posted on social media Friday night that he had “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...”
Clean Virginia director Brennan Gilmore then tweeted a photo of a to-do list apparently from the restaurant that, in addition to everyday restaurant activities like restocking booze and S.Pellegrino water, included the order to “86 Sarah Huckabee Sanders.” In case you’ve never had the pleasure of working in a restaurant, the term “86” means to “remove from the menu” or “get rid of.”
According to The Hill, the restaurant’s Facebook and Yelp pages were then bombarded with both one-star and five-star reviews. (Yes, bald-faced liar Sarah Huckabee Sanders apparently has her fans.)
Sanders joins a growing list of Trump administration officials who are being harassed in public and at home by protesters infuriated by the Nazi-like tactic of separating immigrant families and placing kids (and babies!) in detention camps, which experts have described as nothing short of child abuse.
Last weekend, White House adviser Stephen Miller, the disgraceful human being who helped create and promote both Trump’s Muslim ban and the current human rights fiasco attacking children, was dining at a Mexican restaurant in DC when another customer called Miller out for being a fascist.
According to Page Six, the diner confronted Miller by saying, “Hey look guys, whoever thought we’d be in a restaurant with a real-life fascist begging [for] money for new cages?” Miller quickly “scurried away,” the report said.
And earlier this week, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen also was confronted by a rapidly organized group of protesters at another Mexican restaurant in DC. (What is it with these Nazis and Mexican restaurants?) This was shortly after she had proudly told the media and the world unmistakable lies about the administration’s new “zero tolerance” immigration policy.
“We will not stand by and let Secretary Nielsen dine in peace, while she is directing her employees to tear little girls away from their mothers and crying boys away from their fathers at our border,” a member of the Metro DC Democratic Socialists of America Steering Committee said at the time.
On Friday morning, demonstrators gathered outside Nielsen’s DC home and blasted the ProPublica audio of sobbing and wailing children being separated from their parents at a border processing facility. Let’s hope some of this actually sinks in. But knowing the members of this psycho administration, it probably won’t.
Update: Sanders responded Saturday morning on Twitter by saying, “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.”
Keep telling yourself that, Sarah.
And presumably with a straight face:
And just to be clear:
