Two weeks after declaring how happy she and the rest of President Trump's administration were that the Supreme Court ruled for an antigay baker who refused service to a gay couple, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was booted from a Virginia restaurant, The Hill reports.

Sanders and her party, reportedly her family members, were denied service at the Red Hen in Lexington, Va., on Friday night. A tweet showed instructions for a waiter to "86" Sanders: "Apparently the owner didn't want to serve her and her party out of moral conviction."

"Moral conviction" is often the justification used by antigay businesses who don't want to do business with same-sex couples or transgender people.

Sanders confirmed she was asked to leave, specifically because she works for Trump.

Reviewers poured into Red Hen's Yelp page, with both support and derision. One reviewer, according to The Hill, wrote of the restaurant, "The best, I've heard that they serve crow to those deserving of it."

The American public is responding with more vitriol to the Trump administration lately, especially in light of their now-canceled policy of seperating migrants from their children at the southern border. Not only have several gay dance parties greeted homophobic vice president Mike Pence, but Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was also booted from a Mexican restaurant by protesters. Protesters also showed up at Nielsen's home and blasted the recorded cries of migrant children.
