Elmira Gantry Huckabee-Sanders got a hankerin’ on Friday night for some vittles, and wandered in from Possum Hollar to the big city. Upon bein’ spotted and ID’ed, she was asked to leave:
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

So moved, was I, that I replied:

Anyway, back to Sanders. First off, she Tweeted from her government account, not her private account, and that is an ethics violation and actually something someone interested in enforcing could make actionable. But it is to laugh.
Secondly, Elmira’s assertion that she always do her best to treat people, including those she disagree with, respectfully is bullshit on the face of it. On those rare days that she holds White House briefings, she treats the press with contempt and scorn. Ask CNN’s Jim Acosta.
Lastly, maybe Elmira Gantry should have ordered the cake. Perhaps the owner of the establishment has some sincerely held religious beliefs to not serve her kind: assholes.
