Mike Huckabee Goes Full Papa Bear After Restaurant Turns Away Daughter Because of Her Job

UPDATE [6/23/18, 4:22 p.m. ET]:

Red Hen co-owner Stephanie Wilkinson said she requested Sanders leave after restaurant employees said they favored that.

“Tell me what you want me to do. I can ask her to leave,” Wilkinson reportedly said to her staff. “They said yes,” she recalled, according to The Washington Post.

Wilkinson said she told Sanders that she wanted to uphold certain “standards.”

“I explained that the restaurant has certain standards that I feel it has to uphold, such as honesty, and compassion, and cooperation,” she said.

Some of Wilkinson’s employees who are gay reportedly complained that Sanders defended Trump’s transgender military ban. During her interview with the Post, Wilkinson said she thought Sanders served an “inhumane and unethical administration.”
