'I Work For POTUS': Sarah Sanders Lashes Out at Restaurant Owner Who Booted Her Out

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed she was kicked out of a Virginia restaurant on Friday night -- and attacked the owner on Twitter.


According to the spokesperson, who is reportedly looking to exit the White House, she was asked to leave because she works for President Donald Trump.

"Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for 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," she wrote.
