Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee told Fox New host Laura Ingraham that there's another component to his daughter's ejection from a Virginia restaurant that no one has yet reported.
Stephanie Wilkinson, owner of Red Hen in Lexington, asked Sanders and her party to leave the restaurant Friday evening because Sanders works for the Trump administration and the restaurant owner has a "moral conviction" about the president.
What did Huckabee say?
Huckabee made the remarks during Ingraham's radio show Monday and said that after his daughter and her husband left the restaurant, her in-laws went across the street to visit a different restaurant.
Huckabee said that when they did, Wilkinson reportedly followed the rest of the party across the street and began harassing Sanders' family. He added that Wilkinson also organized an impromptu protest and began "yelling" and "screaming" at Sanders' in-laws.
He told Ingraham, "By the way Laura, there’s a part of that story that hasn’t been told, you’re going to be the first to hear it."
"Once Sarah and her family left, of course Sarah was asked to please vacate, Sarah and her husband just went home. They had sort of had enough," Huckabee added. "But the rest of her family went across the street to a different restaurant."
What happened next?
"The owner of the Red Hen – nobody’s told this – then followed [Sanders' in-laws] across the street, called people, and organized a protest yelling and screaming at them from outside the other restaurant and creating this scene," he explained.
Huckabee added that many of his daughter's husband's family are liberals and revealed that one of them even went as far as to confront at least one of the protesters.
The unnamed family member reportedly told the protester that the protest was making liberals look foolish.
"This is what the left has been reduced to," Huckabee added. "It’s really tragic. And it is dangerous."
Upon speaking with Huckabee, Ingraham tweeted, "This restaurateur of The Red Hen Stephanie Wilkinson not only told @PressSec Sanders to leave — acc to @GovMikeHuckabee on my radio show today, she FOLLOWED Sanders' family across the street to harass them at the other restaurant they went to!"
