At least one Democratic lawmaker is encouraging her supporters to rise up in spontaneous protest and refuse service to members of President Donald Trump’s cabinet, the way press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was ousted from a Lexington, Virginia, restaurant last week.
But other Democrats decried the episode, urging their constituents not to discriminate against patrons, even if they disagree with their politics.
