    • So a restaurant in Virginia took a reservation from Sarah Huckabee Sanders and then told her that she and her family weren't welcome when she arrived. She politely left. But people seem to be really pissed, can't say that I'm not. (Of course they have the right to do that. I know some idiot will go there.)

      I think these people asked for trouble though. I hope nothing happens to them and their business. I just think what they did is stupid on multiple levels. They have no clue how pissed people are getting. They don't know how pissed off regular people are.

      • People on both sides are pissed off these days.

        I would have fed her. She wasn't there for any political reason.

        • ....but if I were Seth Rogan I would have refused the selfie with Paul Ryan as well.

          Ryan would have used it as a celebrity endorsement in some way.

            I agree. Fight policy, not ppl.

            Otoh it seems it's cool to refuse service to others because of your individual belief system (albeit here religious belief)

              I mean if they really do find her morally repugnant then ok. I think she is an awesome individual and I obviously have no problem with her beliefs. But there are some crazy people out there, literally. They put it on the line here. I'm just wondering if they counted the cost first.

                  Or even a gungan
                  With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.

                    I don't read anywhere that she reserved under her name, before appearing.
                    So my guess is that the (LGBT) employees (and the owner) of the restaurant didn't know beforehand that the press secretary of the WH would be their guest.

                    Considering that Sarah Sanders was one of the persons who loudly applauded the courts decision regarding the wedding cake maker (that he has the right to turn away customers with the "wrong" sexual orientation), I find it to be some great kind of biblical justice or Karma, that now she was turned away from somewhere as well

                    Considering what happened to this Pizza restaurant in New York in 2016, where a Trumpist (believing the ridiculous child porn trafficking conspiracy theory that was promoted by people affiliated with the Trump campaign) entered and opened fire, I have to agree with you in these regards.


                    Actually if something happens o the Restaurant or its owner/employees, one can say that Sarah is accessory to it, because she illegally abused her official press secretary Twitter account to spread the story (she is allowed to spread the story privately, but not with the help of her official WH position, or the means (like the Twitter account) that the position provides to her)

                      • Maxine Waters is applauding the refusal of service, telling Democrats to look for all the members of the administration in public places, then form a mob and harass them until they stop coming out in public.

                            former Trump campaigner turned Fox pundit is accused of racism by black panelist and answers by telling him he's out of his cotton-picking mind.
