(Sarah Huckabee) Sanders On Vicious Trump Tweet: President Fights Fire With Fire

After the President sent out a vicious tweet attacking MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski and claiming she had a “face lift,” deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended President Donald Trump, saying he “fights fire with fire.”

“Look, I don’t think that the president’s ever been someone who gets attacked and doesn’t push back. There have been an outrageous number of personal attacks, not just to him but to frankly everyone around him. People on that show have personally attacked me many times, this is a president who fights fire with fire,” Sanders said on Fox News. “And certainly will not be allowed to be bullied by liberal media or liberal elites within the media or Hollywood or anywhere else.”

When asked whether this type of personal attack was necessary, Sanders said what’s “necessary is to push back against unnecessary attacks on the President both personally” and claimed there have been “outrageous attacks” “day in and day out” on “Morning Joe” against her and Trump.

“I have seen far worse things come out of that show. Again, directed not just at the President, but everyone around him, personal attacks, mean, hateful attacks. Again this President is not going to sit back and not push back and fight fire with fire and that’s exactly what he did today,” she said.

1. When I just saw "Sanders" in your title I did a serious WTF?!?!

 

When you see that name on here your mind just assumes it is Bernie, and that gave me a huge WTF moment!

Talk about a relief reading the rest...

2. When you smell like shit and someone tells you so, THEY are not the ones being "mean"...

Get the fuck over yourself you little weasel in human skin...Sarah, you have your job because of the vagina you fell out of, nothing more and maybe considerably less. Shut you mouth and go learn something other than talking points scumbag.

4. O.K.

 

Donald is a fat, lumpy piece of shit who likely has skid marks on his tidy whities.

He is an ignorant fucking piece of shit with a small dick, thus he can only lash out.

How is that Sarah? You Marie Osmond "before" weight loss picture?

Yup, that is the way to resolve issues and lead a Country.

9. False equivalency to the max

On the one side you have a couple of television hosts - lots of them - not very important - paid to say outrageous things for ratings.

On the other side you have the most powerful man in the world. The leader of the free world. The man who controls a vast military and the largest or second largest economy in the world.

This is equivalent to when Trump questioned Obama's birth certificate, he would have responded at least my father wasn't a Nazi.

11. For a woman to condone Trump's attack on another woman is reprehensible to me.

Huckabee Sanders has sold her soul to the Trump universe. Certainly nothing new there, but she's just a special kind of sell out.

Can anyone not imagine Trump making fun of Huckabee Sanders' appearance?

I bring guns to gun fights and guns to knife fights. Because nobody attacks people better than I do, I use the best words when I fight with fire, OK? Because everyone else who didn't get 306 electoral votes in the election is a stupid loser, OK? Sad! Failing! Lame!

28. **Update** Republican women in Congress are making comments.

Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins says in a tweet: “This has to stop — we all have a job — 3 branches of gov’t and media. We don’t have to get along, but we must show respect and civility.”
---
Democrat Nita Lowey of New York says, “The president’s behavior should be repudiated loudly and clearly.”
---
Five-term congresswoman Lynn Jenkins of Kansas says on Twitter: “This is not okay. As a female in politics I am often criticized for my looks. We should be working to empower women.”
---
Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse said on Twitter: “Please just stop. This isn’t normal and it’s beneath the dignity of your office.”
---
South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham tweeted: “Mr. President, your tweet was beneath the office and represents what is wrong with American politics, not the greatness of America.”

31. Fighting fire with fire... I don't recall Joe or Mika commenting about

his scalp reduction or how his mother dresses him funny or how his mouth looks like an anus or wondering how it's possible for him to tweet at all with such little vienna-sausage fingers or how he seems to have an ass big enough for two people or how there don't seem to be any bulges in his pants when he sits down or...

(I've got to look up that YouTube clip where Ivana talks about *someone* gobbling boner pills and penile implants and the like. I'm not mentioning any names, of course.)

For an ex-felon, adulterous is now leading the evangelicals--Jim Bakker!!!

Where is the outcry of the 80s for moral and ethical behavior in our politicians? That was one item both Dems and Rubs agreed on...moral and ethical behavior from our President.....at least in public.
