Sarah Sanders Gets Torched At ‘Women Rule’ Event After Defending Trump’s Attack On Women: Watch
On Tuesday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made an appearance at Politico’s event “Women Rule” where she spoke about he work life and how she balances it with her family life.
During the event, Sanders tried to make Donald Trump seem like a saint that loves women and treats them fairly. It didn’t go very well.
“The president has had some contentious interactions with some of my female colleagues, called one of them a total loser and told another one that she asks a lot of stupid questions,” reporter Eliana Johnson said. “As a professional woman, do you think that’s appropriate?”
“Look, the president has had an equal number of contentious conversations with your male colleagues,” Sanders said, explaining the so-called “equality” to the audience. “The president is not — is certainly not singling out women. And frankly, I think it is actually a detriment when we do that. I think by asking am I upset because he called out a female reporter? Absolutely not. Women wanted to be treated equally. And we have a president that certainly does that. He is not going to hold back. And the people in this country elected him in large part because he’s a fighter.”
Johnson gave Sanders the chance to answer the question again, this time asking it differently.
“Let me put the question to you a different way: Do you think the president, if you include the remarks of two of my female reporters, you mention he said the same thing about male reporters, do you find those remarks appropriate?”
That’s when Sanders decided to point fingers at the press and said they behave inappropriately towards Trump.
“Let me just stop you,” Johnson paused again. “If I were in interviewing one of my colleagues in the news media, I would ask them about their role in the dialogue and whether they think some of the behavior of the press is appropriate. But because you’re here as a representative of the White House, I’m asking you about the president’s role in the president’s part.”
Sanders said that Trump is a “fighter” and when he gets hit, he always hits back, regardless of the gender.
“I think that the people of this country knew exactly who Donald Trump was and they came out and 63 million Americans voted for him and they want to see somebody who stands up for what they believe in and is passionate about the policies that they’re trying to implement,” Sanders said. “And you’re going to get that in President Trump. I don’t think he should back down from who he is. Because that’s who America elected. And that’s, that’s what they want to see is transparency. They don’t want to see somebody who is different behind closed doors than they are on the public stage. And you get exactly that with this president. I think that’s actually a refreshing thing to see.”
