Several months after White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was denied food service at The Red Hen Restaurant, Donald Trump Jr. and his girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, have been turned away from a restaurant in Bozeman, Montana.
The couple were attending a campaign rally for Republican Matt Rosendale and attempted to eat at the Midtown Tavern.
Donald Trump Jr. and his former Fox News personality girlfriend were supposed to give a speech at the Midtown Tavern. Restaurant Manager Jess Wilcox, however, told the Bozeman Daily Chronicle that they wouldn’t allow the couple to speak at the establishment.
The couple were supposed to help Rosendale raise money for his November showdown with Senator Jon Tester (D-MT). Wilcox tried to stay neutral on the taverns decision.
“We definitely don’t want to take political sides. That’s never our intention,” Wilcox told the paper. “We just try to stay politically neutral.”
People connected with the Midtown Tavern say they only canceled the event after they found out it was being used for a campaign rally. They claim that the booking was canceled only at that time and not because the people attending were Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle.
The tavern says it is also not equipped to handle an event that would likely be attended by such a large crowd of people.
Unlike the events that unfolded at The Red Hen Restaurant, President Trump has not attacked the Midtown Tavern. You may recall that following the former incident, Trump attempted to slander the establishment, calling it a “dirty” restaurant before engaging in several other Twitter-based attacked against the restaurant’s owners.
