The Red Hen restaurant opened a big can of worms by ejecting Sarah Sanders this weekend. Different groups of protesters have descended on the Virginia eatery. One group was obviously very pro-Trump.

Protests mark Red Hen’s first scheduled opening since Va. eatery became national cause
The Virginia restaurant that refused to serve White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was hit by picketers Tuesday and police had to block off the bucolic downtown Lexington street and make one arrest.
The Red Hen restaurant was closed as normal Sunday and Monday, but several groups demonstrated against it around 5 p.m. Tuesday, its first scheduled opening since it became a national cause. But the restaurant did not open Tuesday evening…
Another protester, not obviously part of the same small group, was carrying a U.S. flag. Two others were photographed carrying “Trump: Make America Great Again” flags…
Lexington Police Chief Sam Roman told the Roanoke Times that one man drove by and threw a bucket of chicken manure out the window while shouting “make America great again.” Police arrested him and charged him with disorderly conduct.
“People have the right to exercise free speech, and we’re just here to make sure it doesn’t go beyond that,” Chief Roman told the Times.
