White House Deputy Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, was grilled about President Trump’s recent tweets about Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough.
Trump blasted the Morning Joe hosts as ‘Psycho Joe’ and ‘Crazy Mika’ before slamming the latter over a face-lift.
Numerous talking heads and politicians ripped into the President, getting together to universally state that his comments were ‘beneath the dignity’ of the office of the presidency.
When Sanders was asked about whether or not Trump’s actions were those of a leader, the conversation turned to who she, herself, would consider a role model.
She quickly delivered an amazing four-word response – “I point to God.”
Her comments come at about the 6:20 mark …
Via the Independent Journal Review:
Sanders was asked by a reporter if, as a mother, she would defend the tweets to her children: “On a personal level, you have sat here and talked about your family from this podium, are you going to tell your kids this behavior is OK?”
Sanders dug in with her response, citing who is her ‘perfect’ role model: “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. I point to my faith and that’s where I would tell me kids to look. None of us are perfect and certainly there’s only one that is and that’s where I would point that direction.”
It’s hard to argue with that assessment. Trump isn’t perfect. And there’s only one who can attain that goal.

That’s a pretty good lesson to teach your kids.
Sanders further defended the President by saying he was a “fighter” who “fights fire with fire.”
She had to respond to the tweets throughout most of the press conference, with the media clearly outraged at Trump’s comments.
“The president is pushing back against people who attack him day after day after day,” Sanders explained. “Where’s the outrage on that?”
