President Donald J. Trump’s press secretary was thrown out of a Virginia restaurant because she works for the Trump administration.
“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,” she 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 has been owned by Stephanie Wilkinson since 2008, according to a public records database.
Wilkinson and her co-founder John Blackburn are part of the leftist “go green” craze.
“Our two main goals during renovation were to preserve the historic character of the building and update it in the most sustainable way possible,” Blackburn told Virginia Living.
Curiously, nobody named Stephanie Wilkinson is registered to vote in Virginia.
The Red Hen has been taking a beating on Google Reviews since the news surfaced.
“Based on the new report that that the manager asked a patron last night to leave because she worked for the POTUS, this is highly inappropriate,” a Google user named Kimberly Mackie wrote. “A business should never ask a customer to leave because of their job.”
