Conservative CNN contributor Amanda Carpenter on Thursday railed against the White House and President Donald Trump.
Carpenter, a former Ted Cruz staffer, was reacting to the White House’s response to ex-staff secretary Rob Porter, who allegedly had abused two of his previous wives.
“The bottom line of this is that they protected an abuser, and guess what, it’s a job qualification to work in the White House, to protect someone who talked favorably about sexual assault on the Access Hollywood tapes,” she said. “That’s the job qualification in the White House.”
“This is the same president who laughs along with Howard Stern when he says disgusting things about his daughter,” Carpenter continued. “I don’t know how people in the White House let this man date [communications director] Hope Hicks… They protect abusers. There’s no way of getting around it.”
“If you tolerate people who do this to people they say they love, what will they do to the people they don’t know? This matters to a normal person. These people don’t have restraint. It’s disgusting to watch.”

‘Cat is out of the bag’: Trump supporter Byron York reverses and says GOP must allow Bolton impeachment testimony
The Washington Examiner's Byron York has long been sympathetic to President Donald Trump. He has repeatedly defended the president's conduct in Ukraine and attacked the Democratic case. Just a week ago, he penned a column criticizing the idea that Trump has been less cooperative in the impeachment trial than President Bill Clinton. And in particular, he has opposed Democratic demands for former National Security Adviser John Bolton to be called to testify against the president, saying, "if anything is covered by executive privilege, it would be the president's private conversations with his national security adviser about issues of foreign policy and national security."
Mothers of jihadist, Belgium attack victim write book together
Bloodlines bind them to people on opposite sides of a violent divide. One is the mother of a jailed jihadist, the other the mother of a victim wounded in a bloody 2016 attack in Brussels.
But these two Belgian women shared tears, and compassion, and finally an idea to write a book together to tell the world what unites them beyond the differences.
Fatima Ezzarhouni, a 48-year-old born in Morocco and raised since the age of four in the city of Antwerp where she works as a care assistant, said she "just clicked" with Sophie Pirson, a 61-year-old employee in a contemporary arts museum who lives in Brussels.
Mitt Romney: GOP senators ‘increasingly likely’ to call John Bolton to testify in impeachment trial
John Bolton's book bombshell may have broken President Donald Trump's grip on the Republican Party.
The former national security adviser's forthcoming book "The Room Where It Happened" claims Trump explicitly tied Ukraine aid to an investigation of Joe Biden, and GOP senators are publicly saying they want him to testify during the impeachment trial.
“I think it’s increasingly likely that other Republicans will join those of us who think we should hear from John Bolton," said Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT).
