Talk about blaming the victim!
Sarah Sanders tweeted today about having been kicked out of a restaurant by the owner because she works for President Trump. The Politico story on the incident quotes Sanders’ waiter confirming the incident.
But instead of condemning the restaurant, Politico criticizes Sanders:
“[T]he tweet qualified as an uncommonly specific attack from an official White House account on a private business.”
Seriously? If a Trump staffer is punched out by a crazed liberal will Politico condemn the official for letting his jaw get in the way of the attacker’s fist?
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
