White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders “should be allowed to eat dinner in peace,” The Washington Post editorial board wrote Sunday after a Virginia restaurant owner asked Sanders to leave because of her job.

Stephanie Wilkinson, the chef-owner of at The Red Hen in Lexington, Virginia -- around 70 miles southwest of Charlottesville -- said that politics were especially explosive in her small town which voted against Trump in a county that did not.

Given her own moral position that the spokeswoman serves in an "inhumane and unethical" administration, Wilkinson told the Post, she could not accept a defender of the president's "cruelest policies."

Sanders tweeted after the incident:

"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."

The Post's editorial board wrote that the “never-at-rest social media” has blurred the lined of public and private life.

And, "those who are insisting that we are in a special moment justifying incivility should think for a moment how many Americans might find their own special moment. How hard is it to imagine, for example, people who strongly believe that abortion is murder deciding that judges or other officials who protect abortion rights should not be able to live peaceably with their families? Down that road lies a world in which only the most zealous sign up for public service. That benefits no one."
