‘America knew what they were getting’: Sarah Huckabee Sanders blames you for Trump’s despicable tweets

Published

on

Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Thursday defended President Donald Trump’s decision to attack MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski’s physical appearance by saying that the president is a “fighter” who will always hit back when attacked.

“I don’t think you can expect someone to be personally attacked day after day, minute by minute, and sit back,” Sanders said. “Look, the American people elected a fighter. They didn’t elect somebody to sit back and do nothing. That’s — they knew what they were getting when they voted for Donald Trump, and he won overwhelmingly.”

Sanders was then asked if she approved of Trump attacking a woman’s appearance.

“Look, everybody wants to make this a — an attack on a woman,” she said. “What about the constant attacks that he receives, or the rest of us? I’m a woman, and I’ve been attacked by this show multiple times but I don’t cry foul because of it.”

Sanders was then asked if she thought Trump should be seen as a role model for her children.

“Look, I’ve been asked before, when it comes to role models, as a person of faith, I think we all have one perfect role model and when I’m asked that question, I point to God,” she replied. “I point to my faith and that’s where I would tell me kids… none of us are perfect and certainly there’s only one that is and that’s where I would point that direction.”

Ben Carson is Donald Trump’s faulty human shield against accusations of racism

Published

on

Ben Carson is back in the news — after another long absence — because Donald Trump has once again been accused of racism.

This article originally appeared at Salon.

The secretary of Housing and Urban Development is the only African-American member of the president’s Cabinet, and is often trotted out to clean up after Trump makes a mess too obviously problematic for the media to ignore. While Trump has tried to spin his recent racist attacks on four progressive freshman congresswomen as a strategic maneuver meant to manipulate Democratic infighting to his advantage, Carson's re-emergence from his stupor should be a clear indication that the president’s team recognizes the damage that can be caused by his unforced errors.

An illegal trend could be emerging after Trump let Kellyanne Conway off the hook for breaking federal law

Published

on

Federal workplaces are supposed to be free of politics, but a Trump administration appointee used a government forum Wednesday to express support for the president’s reelection.

At a conference on religious freedom hosted by the State Department, an official told the crowd of several hundred people that “hopefully he will be reelected,” referring to President Donald Trump.

It’s illegal for federal employees to engage in political activities while they are on the job.

“It’s a violation of the Hatch Act for a federal official, to say in her official capacity, to hope that the president will be reelected,” said Kathleen Clark, an expert on legal ethics at the Washington University in St. Louis.
