Trump supporters are bombarding the wrong Red Hen restaurant with threats and abuse

Published

on

A New Jersey restaurant named The Red Hen is being bombarded with threats and abuse by Trump supporters who are confusing it with the Virginia restaurant of the same name that refused to serve White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

NJ.com reports that the Red Hen, based in the New Jersey town of Swedesboro, has been getting nonstop angry phone calls from Trump supporters ever since Sanders on Saturday revealed that the Virginia-based restaurant also called the Red Hen had asked her to leave because it disagreed with her politics.

“It was off the chart,” restaurant manager Elizabeth Pope told NJ.com. “Then the hostess comes to me and says, ‘people are calling and yelling and swearing.'”

What’s even more disturbing, said Pope, is that Trump-backing internet trolls have crushed her restaurant’s ratings since the start of the weekend — and have single-handedly dropped it by a full star on Yelp.

To counteract the Trump fans’ misguided rage, the Red Hen sent out an official statement on its Facebook page explaining that it was not the same restaurant that booted Sanders.

“THE RED HEN IN SWEDESBORO, NEW JERSEY IS IN NO WAY AFFILIATED WITH THE RED HEN IN VIRGINIA,” the restaurant wrote. “We are an independent, family owned business who happens to share the same name. Kindly check your facts before you erroneously defame an innocent business on Facebook in an attempt to destroy their business where they welcome all, irrespective of their race, religion, views or opinions.”

"The group that gathered at Butowsky’s home included a conspiracy theorist, a Fox reporter fighting for her career, a former private intelligence contractor married to star journalist Lara Logan, and a Democratic PR operative who lost his business in the face of sexual assault allegations."

Trump said he ‘loved’ the fact that America is more divided than ever: ex-GOP congressman

Published

on

President Donald Trump bragged about increasing divisions in America during a White House meeting, a former Republican congressman explained on MSNBC on Monday.

Former Rep. David Jolly (R-FL) told host Joy Reid that "Donald Trump has intentionally tried to create the anxiety" that Americans are explaining.

"Garry Kasparov, the Russian freedom activist, has said the point of disinformation isn't to manipulate the truth, it's to exhaust your critical thinking," Jolly explained. "To exhaust your critical thinking, that's what we're experiencing as voters."

"I had a colleague that was in a meeting in the Roosevelt Room and he said he heard Trump say, 'Have you ever seen the nation so divided?' My colleagues and others said, 'No, we haven't.' Trump said, 'I love it that way.' This is the currency that he's peddling as political strategy, but it's not one we have to accept," Jolly explained.
