Poor Sarah Huckabee Sanders.  Sounds like she is persona non grata at the Red Hen in Lexington, Virginia.

So, what can we learn from this –  other than that the owner of the Red Hen is my new hero?  Well, for starters, we know that Sanders is every bit the thin-skinned hypocrite that her boss is.

Witness this tweet from the POTUS’s spokeswoman …communications directormouth piece chief lying sack of shit:

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.

Let’s break this down in two pieces.

First, anyone that has ever seen a White House press briefing knows that the second part is pure horse crap. The disdain with which Sanders and rest of the Trump cadre treat not just those with different views, but even those with the temerity to ask the administration to defend their own positions, is on display daily. The overt disingenuousness here is astounding. Like all bullies, Sanders has no problem attacking others, but yet quickly plays the victim when the slings are aimed her way.

Second, it really doesn’t say more about the owner than Sanders.  What it says about the owner is: at worst she’s petty.  At best she has balls.  Contrary to most business owners who never pick sides lest it affect their bottom line, this woman felt principled enough to take action.

Conversely, what it says about Sanders is that she’s ignorant and tone deaf to real America. She’s not nearly as politically astute as she thinks she is if she doesn’t understand that  good, decent people everywhere are outraged by things like state-sponsored separation of parents and children. Sanders is so busy placating Trump who is so busy placating his base that she seems to have lost all moral fiber, assuming she had any to begin with.

Facing a backlash from people of conscience shouldn’t be a surprise to Huckleberry Sanders.  She’s sold her soul to Donald Trump. She trades in dishonesty and habitually  insults the very notion of democracy and a free press. It should come as no epiphany that her betrayal of decency evokes a strong reaction from people with still-beating hearts.

    I’m no friend of POTUS, but both sided need to grow up. Banned people over politics is a terrible model for this country. Remember the horrific fights that used to happen over the Yankee-sox rivalry. Imagine that nationwide over blue vs red? Scary stuff!

    While I am certainly no friend of POTUS, I think both sides need to grow up. This is not a good model for the country. Reminds me of the riots that used to happen over the Red Sox-Yankee rivalry. Are we as a country going to ban people because they don’t agree with you? Whatever happened to “I may disagree with your opinion, but I’ll fight for your right to express it.”
    What if Sanders had came, ate and left without anyone saying anything. No one even recognized (or cared!) who she was. My guess is she and her cronies knew they’d cause a stir going into a small “farm to table” restaurant that sounds like it might lean left. Totally ignoring them would have been the higher ground. The best reply to “Do you know who I am?” is: “Um, yeah, just a person like me.”
