The Virginia restaurant that made national headlines after its owner asked White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave reopened on Thursday night after being closed for two weeks due to protests.

The Red Hen reopened in Lexington, Va., as dozens of protesters lined up across the street, USA Today reported.

“This’ll be closed within a year!” one man shouted, according to the newspaper.

The article goes on to state the following:

The restaurant represents a battleground between supporters of President Trump and those who support the owner’s actions, and both protesters and supporters have flocked to the Red Hen in recent days, some hoping for a reservation at the establishment that said “no” to the White House.

“I thought it was very brave what the owner did,” said Don Mandelkorn, who told USA Today that he had hoped to eat at the Red Hen on his way back home to Vermont. “We wanted to support the actions she took.”

The incident prompted a debate over civility in politics and arguments over whether it is appropriate to confront public officials while they are dining out.
