President Donald Trump's press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, was kicked out of The Red Hen restaurant in Virginia over the weekend -- and late-night comedians could not wait to get their hands on the story on Monday night during their respective shows.
Stephanie Wilkinson, owner of The Red Hen, was reportedly informed of Sanders' presence by her employees and allowed them to vote on whether or not the polarizing politician could stay. Wilkinson told The Washington Post she then asked Sanders to leave because Sanders "works for an inhumane and unethical administration." Sanders reportedly offered to pay for the cheese plate she and her group had already eaten, but Wilkinson declined the offer. Sanders left, later tweeting, "[Wilkinson's] actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so."
Trump also tweeted about the ordeal, writing, "The Red Hen restaurant should focus more on cleaning its filthy windows (badly needs a paint job) rather than refusing to serve a fine person like Sarah Huckabee Sanders. I always had a rule -- if a restaurant if dirty on the outside, it is dirty on the inside!"
The Comedy Central star started off on the subject by saying he thinks the Red Hen owner handled the situation the wrong way.
"I think that the restaurant should have done is treated her the same way she treats the press. They should have just brought her an empty plate, and when she goes, 'Where's my food?' You go, 'It's right there,'" Noah joked. She'll be like, 'There's no food!' And they'll be like, 'Well, the chef told us there's food, so there must be food there. And that's our position. That's it.'"
"You know, when you think about it, asking Sanders to leave was probably the nicest thing they could've done," Noah continued. "The waiter was probably like, 'Listen, if I'm being honest, all the chefs are jizzing in your food right now, so if I were you, I'd go get a pizza at one of those places where you can watch them make it.'"
"When you look at what happened, Sarah Sanders didn't get that bad a deal," Noah added. "Yes, they asked her to leave, but they had already served her a cheese board appetizer, which they didn't charge her for. Honestly, if I was Sarah Huckabee Sanders, instead of complaining about this, I would use it to my advantage. I would just go to different restaurants in disguise, and then I'd order all my cheese, and then once I've got it, I'd reveal myself like, 'Aha! It is I -- Sarah Huckabee Sanders! From the Trump administration! I got cheese, bitches!'"
He also had a response to Trump's tweet on the matter. "I love how President Trump always goes right to the appearance of something, even when it makes no sense. He's like, 'Oh, yeah? Well, guess what, restaurant? You ugly! Yeah. I wouldn't eat there with Mike Pence's dick.'"
'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon'
"Sarah Huckabee Sanders was kicked out of a restaurant in Virginia. Turns out her server asked her what she wanted as an appetizer, and out of habit, she refused to answer," Fallon joked on "The Tonight Show."
The comedian then read Trump's Twitter response and said, "If you've ever read a Yelp review and thought, 'Who's got the time to write this?' The answer is the President of the United States.'"
'Late Night with Seth Meyers'
"This weekend, Sarah Huckabee Sanders got to do what conservative white women love most -- speak with a manager," Meyers joked on "Late Night."
The NBC star added, "White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked to leave a restaurant in Virginia on Friday because she works for the Trump administration, which is weird because usually people who work for the Trump administration are asked to leave the Trump administration."
Regarding Trump's restaurant "rule" that a restaurant dirty on the outside must be dirty on the inside, the comedian joked that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had a similar one.
'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert'
"Applaud all you want, but my heart really goes out to her," Colbert told his "Late Show" audience. "She was separated from her appetizer! She doesn't even know where it is right now! What if it's getting cold? She doesn't know!"
Colbert was happy to hear Wilkinson had asked her employees to vote, saying, "Oh, good! So someone's getting due process. It's nice. It's heartwarming!"
The CBS comedian also said Sanders was actually onto something for those who work in the Trump administration.
"Sweet new way for Trump officials to get a free meal," he said. "You know you're gonna get kicked out eventually, so go hog wild on the app round! 'Hi, we'll have an order of the jalapeño poppers, the hummus plate, the twice baked potato skins and a filet mignon as a starter. Oh, you just recognized us? We'll take that to go.'"
Regarding Sanders' Twitter response to the situation, he said, "What do you mean you treat everybody with respect? You work for Donald trump. You don't even treat yourself with respect."
Colbert also suggested that, in the future, instead of kicking Sanders out, restaurant workers should treat her the same way she treats her customers: "Only take the order of the two people at the table you like, then tell Sanders, 'I'm not gonna comment on whether this dish contains peanuts,' and then when the food never arrives, just say, 'I haven't talked to the chef about that yet, so I can't give you any new information. I'll be back at 2:45 tomorrow with a completely different menu that you can't order from.'"
