"Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left", Ms Sanders tweeted on Saturday.

Over the weekend, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich weighed in on the increasingly nasty tone of politics.

Lexington is located about 190 miles (304 kilometers) south west of the nation's capital, in the rural Shenandoah Valley.

While the areas in and around Washington DC, including suburbs in neighbouring Maryland and Virginia (Hillary Clinton won both states in 2016) are predominantly Democratic, rural Virginia is largely Republican. The town of about 7,000 is home to Washington & Lee University and the Virginia Military Institute.

As of Sunday morning the New Jersey restaurant's Facebook was swarmed with dozens of one-star reviews, including, "T$3 o turn away a customer is not right", "All RED HENS need to be boycotted", and a zealous, "I wouldn't eat here if my life depended on it after what you did to SARAH!"

Shaub accused Sanders of using her public account to apply pressure on the restaurant by instigating public outrage.

Meanwhile, a Red Hen restaurant in CT seems to have removed its Facebook page altogether, while posting on its Google page that it also has no affiliation with the Virginia restaurant at the center of the controversy. "And appetizers are 'small plates for small minds'". As the Virginia restaurant continues to get swarmed with five-star and one-star reviews online, depending on where the reviewer falls politically, the New Jersey store has been getting similar feedback, despite not being involved in the incident.

"We serve everybody", he said.

This was the second public incident involving social aggravation of a Trump aide in recent days, after his Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was heckled while dining out at a Mexican restaurant earlier in the week.

The separation of families trying to enter the U.S.at the southern border has intensified political differences and passions that were already at elevated levels during the Trump presidency.

Despite that, according to Freidman, people actually called his Italian-influenced restaurants threatening them.

Ari Fleischer, who was a press secretary for President George W. Bush, tweeted Saturday: "I guess we're heading into an America with Democrat-only restaurants, which will lead to Republican-only restaurants".
