An Indian reporter at Monday’s press briefing assured White House press secretary Sarah Sanders that she is welcome to eat at any Indian restaurant in the area.
“If I could make a quick comment,” Raghubir Goyal said, as another reporter in the briefing room yelled, “no!”
“Sarah, you are most welcome at any Indian restaurant across the U.S. including especially this area,” Goyal said.
Sanders grinned and chuckled at the Goyal’s kind-hearted message.
The reporter’s message flew in the face of Sanders’ recent treatment by the owners of the Red Hen in Lexington, Virginia. Sanders was asked to leave the establishment because the owners said they do not support her work for President Trump. (RELATED: Restaurant Owner Kicks Out Sarah Sanders)
Other members of the Trump administration have also faced societal exile. Department of Homeland Security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was driven out of a Mexican restaurant in Washington, D.C. by socialist protesters in June.
