    Bernie Sanders: Sarah Sanders Has The Right To 'Go Into A Restaurant And Have Dinner'

    From The Hill

    Justin Wise of The Hill wrote:

    Sen Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Wednesday came to the defense of White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, saying individuals should "have the right to go into a restaurant and have dinner."

    The Vermont senator made the comments while speaking on MSNBC about the recent uptick in public confrontations Trump Cabinet officials have faced. On Friday, Sarah Sanders was asked to leave a small Virginia restaurant because of her role in the administration.

    In addition, protesters confronted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell(R-Ky.) on Tuesday over the Trump administration's border policies.

    "I'm not a great fan of shouting down people or being rude to people," Bernie Sanders said. "People have a right to be angry when Congress gives tax breaks to billionaires and then wants to cut nutrition programs for low income pregnant women."

    But he said that anger needs to be taken out in a "constructive way" and that people should not be kicked out of restaurants over political differences.

    "Look, as I've said before, yeah, I think people have the right to go into a restaurant and have dinner," he said.

    The senator added that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who upset longtime Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.) in a New York congressional primary Tuesday, is a prime example of taking anger out in a constructive way. Ocasio-Cortez, a first-time Democratic socialist candidate, is a former organizer for Bernie Sanders's presidential campaign. Her win stunned political observers.

    "She took on the entire local Democratic establishment in her district and won a very strong victory," Bernie Sanders said in a statement earlier Wednesday, referring to Ocasio-Cortez. "She demonstrated once again what progressive grassroots politics can do."

    This is why I keep asking myself, "Why isn't this man the President of the United States?  This man spoke common sense today.  As crazy as all these confrontations have been, he's right that the best way to handle this is in at the polls.  Start it at the mid-term elections THIS November, and again in November 2020.  Bottom line, these people, whether you support them or not are human, and they deserve the same rights as we have.  Let them eat, let them go about their day.  They may do and support things we don't.  We have the right to vote them out when the time comes and we don't agree with them, but at the end of the day, they are human.  That's something we all can agree on.

    Just saying.

    I forgot to add that what he said that everyone as the right to go out to dinner without being asked to leave just because who they work for. Its a job might not be one I would want but it is a job.

    Yeah, definitely agree here. Anyone should be allowed to eat in the restaurant as long as they're behaving themselves and aren't making other customers uncomfortable.

    And, of course, the best way to handle someone like this is at the polls.
