White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was kicked out of a Virginia restaurant on Friday because she works for President Donald Trump.
However, Sanders’s response to the intolerance she endured proves she is all class.
“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,” Sanders tweeted.
A waiter at the restaurant revealed in a Facebook post that the owner of the restaurant asked Sanders and her family to leave after about two minutes.
"I just served Sarah huckabee sanders for a total of 2 minutes before my owner asked her to leave and she complied," the waiter wrote. "Her family left on their own accord, we didn't actually refuse service or 'kick her out.'"

A review battle quickly erupted on Yelp, with many customers leaving critical reviews over the treatment endured by Sanders.
“I was dining at the Red Hen and witnessed them rudely refuse service to Sarah Huckabee Sanders. I was disgusted and appalled by the incident. I will never eat at this establishment again,” one user wrote.
“Any restaurant that refuses to serve someone because of their political affiliation is anti-American,” another Yelp user said. “If you're liberal And don't want to be treated that way when you visit conservative areas, then don't give these close-minded progressives your business.”
