The owner of a San Francisco restaurant famed for taking on politicians said Senator Bernie Sanders lost his voice in the 2020 presidential election after the Vermont Democrat was "rude and moody" to its servers.
John Konstin, who owns 111-year-old John & # 39; s Grill, told Politico that many Democrats dined in his bistro while the Democratic National Committee was in town for a three-day event this weekend. Konstin told Politico that Sanders had come to dinner with about 15 members of his campaign team and was not nice to any of the staff. He did not want to shake hands or take pictures.

"It was all very nice, except for the moody Bernie," said Konstin to Politico. "I think he was just hungry and did not want to be a politician, he lost my voice."
Sanders' campaign did not reply to an email from Fox News after closing time as a comment. Lee Housekeeper, the media contact for John's Grill, told San Francisco Gate that it was untypical for Konstin to speak ill of his restaurant guests.
"Bernie had to be in a terrible mood," Houskeeper said. "Everyone in the public needs to understand when it's time to order room service."
Konstin told Politico that staff members were waiting for others, including a large party with California Foreign Minister Alex Padilla, Vice Governor of California Eleni Kounalakis and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had a more enjoyable experience. He described Pelosi as "pure class".
