Huckabee Sanders Removed from Restaurant in Virginia

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Friday was asked to leave a Virginia restaurant by its owner. The incident was first noted online by a social media user claiming to have been her server and later confirmed by Sanders herself. The owners' "actions say far more about her than about me," Sanders wrote on Twitter. Previously, senior policy adviser Stephen Miller was heckled while eating at a Mexican restaurant, and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen left a different Mexican establishment after about a dozen protesters surrounded her table.

Discussion Questions:

  • Why do you think Huckabee Sanders was asked to leave?
  • Do you agree with the restaurant's decision? Why or why not?
  • What impact do you think this could have on the restaurant? Why?
