On Tuesday, former press secretary Sean Spicer appeared on Fox & Friends for a brief guest interview. During the program, the hosts ask Spicer about his reaction to the recent Los Angeles Times article by David Horsey where Horsey offensively attacks Sarah Sander’s physical appearance.
While Horsey’s article received pushback from Republicans, it has generated little reaction from the Democrats who seem to have simply pushed the matter under the rug and moved on.
“I think Sarah does a phenomenal job. She is a great person. And it’s interesting to me that so many of the media love to take pot shots when they think things are out of bounds and inappropriate, and yet the deafening silence from so many of these same individuals who are so concerned when attacks get lobbed from members of the Republican party.”
This is the hypocrisy of the left. They can fire shots all day, but when someone on the right steps in to fight back, the liberals deem it inappropriate. Spicer continues to say that it is infuriating that a liberal reporter can get away with this just because he is on the left.
“When it’s another member of the establishment media, a quote, ‘Pulitzer-prize winning, well-established journalist,’ [who] makes disgusting kind of comments about somebody’s appearance, there is a deafening silence from some of the network anchors so easily appalled at some of the other comments,” Spicer told the Fox & Friends hosts.
Who else is tired of liberal hypocrisy? Let us know in the comments below!
We’ve seen glimpses of Aidy Bryant’s Sarah Huckabee Sanders impression in recent months on “Saturday Night Live.” These glimpses have included when Bryant’s Sanders character described her mother as a “big Southern hamburger” — a sendup her father, Mike Huckabee, denounced as “a little bit silly, sexist, misogynist.”
This weekend, Sanders got the full Sean Spicer treatment.
In a prerecorded sketch, Bryant’s Sanders floats back and forth between implausible and nonsensical claims, with a music video of her singing Demi Lovato’s “Confident” interspersed.
During an appearance on Fox & Friends, Spicer was asked about that widely-condemned Los Angeles Times editorial which referred to Sanders as a “slightly chunky soccer mom.” Spicer responded by condemning the double standard for Republicans and press figures who launch personal attacks against each other.
“When it’s another member of the establishment media, a quote, pulitzer prize winning, well-established journalist, makes disgusting kind of comments about somebody’s appearance, there is a deafening silence from some of the network anchors so easily appalled at some of the other comments,” Spicer said. “It’s interesting to me the one sided faux outrage that they have.”
Shortly afterwards, Spicer reflected on his personal experience with Saturday Night Live when he was asked if Sanders could be damaged now that she’s being lampooned by the show.
Spicer was doubtful, saying “people understand the angle that the mainstream media is coming at this from. They are going to do everything they can to undermine the conservative movement, Republicans and this administration.”It may not be Melissa McCarthy berating reporters from behind the lectern, but Bryant’s impression of Sanders is spot-on. More to come, surely.
