White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was booted from a Virginia restaurant because she works for U.S. President Donald Trump, setting off a fierce debate about whether politics should play a role in how administration officials are treated in public.Sanders tweeted that she was told by the owner of the Red Hen in Lexington, Virginia, that she had to "leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left". She said the episode Friday evening said far more about the owner of the restaurant than it did about her.The restaurant's co-owner Stephanie Wilkinson told The Washington Post that her staff had called her to report Sanders was in the restaurant. She cited several reasons, including the concerns of several restaurant employees who were gay and knew Sanders had defended Trump's desire to bar transgender people from the military.
