Trump Goes After ‘Dirty’ Red Hen Restaurant In Monday Morning Tirade

President Trump took to social media on Monday morning and commented on his press secretary being kicked out of a Lexington, Virginia restaurant. He also mentioned Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, the Obama administration and the ongoing immigration crisis in the tirade.

On Friday evening, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and seven members of her family were refused service and were kicked out of a restaurant because of her affiliation with the Trump administration. President Trump directly referenced the restaurant in one tweet.

In the post, the president said the establishment should “focus more on cleaning” and claimed the facility “badly needs a paint job.” He called Sanders a “fine person” and inferred the restaurant was “dirty” on the inside.

“The Red Hen Restaurant should focus more on cleaning its filthy canopies, doors and windows (badly needs a paint job) rather than refusing to serve a fine person like Sarah Huckabee Sanders,” Trump tweeted. “I always had a rule, if a restaurant is dirty on the outside, it is dirty on the inside!”

The president also turned his attention to the Justice Department and Mueller’s investigation into potential Russia collusion.

“I have tried to stay uninvolved with the Department of Justice and FBI (although I do not legally have to), because of the now totally discredited and very expensive Witch Hunt currently going on. But you do have to ask why the DOJ & FBI aren’t giving over requested documents?”

The president then repeated a previous rant about the media’s coverage of immigration practices under the Obama administration.

Amid media criticism, the Trump administration has maintained that they are enforcing the federal immigration laws which were already on the books under the previous administration.

As immigration cases are continuing to bog down federal judges and clog the judicial system, a proposal to hire more judges has been proposed. Trump said the plan was “not the way to go” and instead pushed forward a plan to confront immigration which he says is cheaper than hiring more federal judges to hear more immigration cases.
