The restaurant which happily threw Sarah Huckabee Sanders out of their establishment in the middle of her dinner with her family is finding out the hard way, that’s not good “business practice” to get rude and political.
After the Red Hen decided to make a political statement over “dinner,” they faced instant backlash, and they have yet to recover. As a matter of fact, the city of Lexington, where the restaurant is located, is now suffering, as the once-popular tourist spot has fallen on bad times.
The issue is so grave, that the local tourist board is now spending “emergency funds” to try and fight off the damage caused by “Red Hen.”
A small town in Virginia is attempting a reputation makeover after a restaurant in the area infamously refused to serve White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders in June.
The area’s regional tourism board is pulling together emergency funds to boost its digital marketing campaign, the Roanoke Times reported Sunday. The money is normally saved, however, officials agreed the region is in desperate need of positive coverage after the Sanders controversy.
The tourism board serves Lexington, Va., where The Red Hen is located, and other communities that are about three hours from Washington, D.C.
Following the incident, the tourism board was flooded with thousands of calls and emails — and the complaints are still coming. The office received a letter Thursday from a Georgia family that wrote to say it would never return because of what happened.
“For a town our size, it was a significant impact,” Patty Williams, the director of marketing, told the Roanoke Times.
In June, Sanders tweeted she was told to leave by the owner of the restaurant because she worked for the president.
“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,” Sanders tweeted at the time. “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.”
Following the tweet, social media users took to the Red Hen’s Facebook and Yelp pages to bombard it with one-star ratings and bad reviews. Some Trump supporters also flocked to the restaurant in protest after news broke. The restaurant closed its doors for nearly two weeks after the controversy broke.

Any sign that Iran is preparing a more aggressive missile policy in Iraq will exacerbate tensions between Tehran and Washington, already heightened by U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to pull out of a 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.
It would also embarrass France, Germany and the United Kingdom, the three European signatories to the nuclear deal, as they have been trying to salvage the agreement despite new U.S. sanctions against Tehran.
According to three Iranian officials, two Iraqi intelligence sources and two Western intelligence sources, Iran has transferred short-range ballistic missiles to allies in Iraq over the last few months. Five of the officials said it was helping those groups to start making their own.
“The logic was to have a backup plan if Iran was attacked,” one senior Iranian official told Reuters. “The number of missiles is not high, just a couple of dozen, but it can be increased if necessary.”
