A Lexington, Virginia, Red Hen restaurant asked White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave last week. Since then President Donald Trump blasted the location on Twitter.
According to an NBC News report, the president tweeted about the how filthy the exterior of the restaurant in Virginia is, and he explained his rule about dirty exteriors.
Early this morning, Donald Trump tweeted to his 53.1 million followers on Twitter, “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. I always had a rule, if a restaurant is dirty on the outside, it is dirty on the inside!”
At this time, nobody knows for sure if the president ever visited the location, which is near the Shenandoah Valley. Judging from pictures of the Red Hen, the exterior appears to be in reasonable repair, and it looks clean, and the paint is good. The canopies have some weathering, which could be part of the restaurant’s aesthetic. Also, the restaurant passed its most recent Virginia state health inspection a few months ago in February. The report, dated February 6, did not require a follow-up.
