Press Secretary Sarah Sanders made the news this week when a small restaurant in Virginia ousted her while she was enjoying her meal due to the restaurant owner’s left leaning policies.
The expulsion made waves online with people rushing to defend either side for their position. But now even famous liberal figures are going public with their distaste for the restaurant’s actions.
David Axelrod, a key architect of Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns, tweeted that he disagreed with those cheering the restaurant’s eviction of Sanders. “I am kind of amazed and appalled by the number of folks on Left who applauded the expulsion,” he tweeted. “This, in the end, is a triumph for @realDonaldTrump vision of America: Now we’re divided by red plates & blue plates! #sad.”
David Cole, the national legal director of the ACLU, said, “I think it’s wrong, but under most jurisdictions laws, it has not been made illegal. That is probably because it rarely happens.”
“I think the restaurant owner should have served her,” said Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the ranking member of the House Oversight Committee. “I really do,” he added during an appearance on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”
