Haters gonna hate, and to #trumpcult it doesn't matter who. Trump, of course, had to weigh in with one of his spectacular moronic comments (see last section of quote). #trumpcult too stupid to know which "Red Hen" to hate....

This is what happens when your restaurant is also called ‘Red Hen’
The Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Va., probably wishes White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders hadn’t stopped in for dinner. All the other — unaffiliated — Red Hen restaurants would be good with that, too.

The cheese board had arrived but her entrée had not when Sanders was asked to get up from her table in Lexington, Va., and, kindly, leave.

Sanders tweeted as much over the weekend, saying she was given the boot “because I work for @POTUS,” referring to President Trump. The owner of the restaurant — which is well past Charlottesville and about 190 miles from the White House — told The Post that to uphold her business’s standards of honesty and compassion, Sanders had to go.

But for Twitter users, angry callers and Yelp reviewers, geography be damned. Any restaurant bearing the name “Red Hen” with some kind of bird silhouette for a logo was lumped in with the one that showed Sanders the door.

[…]

Behold, a sampling:

[…]

On Monday morning, President Trump weighed in, saying the Red Hen should “focus more on cleaning its filthy canopies, doors and windows (badly needs a paint job).”

He did not specify which Red Hen.

Apparently, the Red Hen is a franchise. If so, then I wonder if the refusal to serve Sarah Huckabee violates the franchise agreement. For example, could there be a clause that prohibits restaurants from taking any action that tarnishes the Red Hen name?

Typical Trump voter here - Suggesting someone burn down the wrong Red Hen :rolleyes:

Elizabeth Pope, the restaurant’s operating manager, told NJ.com that the restaurant’s rating dropped from “4.8 stars to three-point-something.” Some callers lobbied violent threats, including, “I hope someone burns it down.” The restaurant received more than 100 calls over six hours on Saturday afternoon.

Precisely where in the article did it say that it was a franchise? It says that the businesses were "not related".

Yep - The Red Hen is a very popular name for just about any type of retail business. Bet there are 50 in the restaurant category alone.

We on the left have to be careful about what we do and say because those on the trump right arent too bright.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders is just darned lucky she didn't stop at the Blue Hen Restaurant!!

They wouldn't have just refused her service! They would have tarred and feathered her, and ridden her out of town on a rail!!
