WH's Sanders Rips Red Hen 'Harassment' as 'Unacceptable'


By    |   Monday, 25 June 2018 05:03 PM

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Monday decried "harassment" against her because she works for President Donald Trump, calling the targeting "unacceptable."

In her first press briefing in a week, Sanders dove right into the controversy over her ejection from the Red Hen restaurant in suburban Virginia.

"We are allowed to disagree, but should be able to do so freely and without fear of harm," she said. "And this goes for all people, regardless of politics. Some have chosen hate and vandalism toward the restaurant. A Hollywood actor encouraged people to kidnap my children, and this weekend a member of Congress called for people to push back and make clear to those serving their country in this administration that they are not welcome anywhere, anytime, for anything.

"Healthy debate on ideas and political philosophy is important. But the calls for harassment and the push for any Trump supporter to avoid the public is unacceptable."

She also defended the use of her official Twitter on Saturday to report getting tossed from the Red Hen, which one expert called an ethics violation.

"I was responding to a number of news stories reached out to by over a dozen reporters and multiple news stories issued, and it was considered news of the day, so I responded in the way I would to any other news of the day story," Sanders told reporters.

Actor Peter Fonda came under fire for a since-deleted tweet suggesting the president's son should be taken from his mother, and Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., has been criticized for her call for harassing Trump administration officials over the zero-tolerance immigration policy that led to the separation of children from their illegal immigrant families caught at the southern border.
