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— Kayleigh McEnany 45 Archived (@PressSec45) June 23, 2018
The Red Hen could not immediately be reached and their website did not appear to be working. A number of people criticised the restaurant for the move on the it’s Yelp page.
