Waking up from my post Pride Run nap, I grab my phone to skim through Twitter for inspirational photos of menz in various forms of undress and I come across numerous tweets about Sarah Sanders being asked to leave a restaurant….for….well being Sarah Sanders.
Of course she is crying foul. Her daddy is crying foul, and those that support Trump with their 2 brain cells cry foul.
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

I am bringing this up because it falls in line with our “let them eat cake” conversation. Sure go ahead and big a dick and refuse to bake a cake for a loving couple. BUT you have to tell us with a massive sign, that takes up 30% of your store front window. Then, we, as consumers, can decide where to shop.
The owner of the Red Hen, simply decided she didn’t want to serve the women that helps to propagate the lies and discourse that comes from the White House. Sarah Sanders is a dick and just like we can chose to not buy from her, if she was a shop owner, we sure as fuck can refuse to take her money.
“I’m not a fan of confrontation. I have a business and I want the business to thrive. But this feels like the moment in our democracy when people have to make uncomfortable decisions to uphold their morals.” – Stephanie Wilkinson, owner RED HEN https://t.co/s6V0LR1LEj
