Sarah Sanders kicked out of restaurant because of work for Trump

From the BBC:  Sarah Sanders kicked out of restaurant because of work for Trump

The interesting part to me is that people are calling this “bigotry” and comparing it to the recent Supreme Court case where a bakery refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple.

Let’s all understand this. Bigotry is automatic dislike for a large group of people for reasons beyond their control, like being born black or Jewish or even gay.  To dislike an individual for their personal beliefs and actions is really just about the opposite of bigotry.  Nobody is refusing Sanders service because she is a woman, or because she is from Arkansas.  That would be wrong.  Refusing her service for her stance on immigration, or any other policy is fair game for a public figure.  She wants to have it both ways, and anyone who lets her has been bamboozled.
