Former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders spoke out to slam the co-hosts of the ABC talk show “The View” on Tuesday night, saying that they are the “definition of hypocrisy.”
Sanders called out the co-hosts after a contentious interview with them.
“They didn’t like it very much when I reminded them, as they were talking about the problems in all these major cities, who was leading those major cities,” Sanders told Fox News host Sean Hannity. “It was very interesting that the second I started naming off all of the accomplishments and all of the things that the president has done to empower the Black community and to help the Black community, they quickly cut me off and decided it was time to move on.”
Not stopping there, Sanders attacked co-host Joy Behar for calling the president a “terrorist.”
“Despite the fact that the president spent the last four years wiping the most dangerous terrorist off of the face of the planet, they are the definition of hypocrisy,” Sanders said.
Sanders feels that Behar and her fellow “The View” co-hosts have “decided that they hate President Trump more than they love the United States of America.”
“It’s never been more evident than the fact that they can’t be happy about the positive things that this president has done to help all Americans, particularly Black Americans across this country,” she said.
In another interview with ABC News, Huckabee refused to confirm speculation that she is preparing to run for governor of Arkansas, a role her father Mike Huckabee had from 1996 to 2007.
“We’ll see,” Sanders said. “Right now my focus is on the 2020 election, helping the president get re-elected. I’d love to see us pick up some more seats in the Senate and take back the House, and I’ll make a decision on that after we get through 2020.”
She also said that being a mother helped her in her job as Donald Trump’s press secretary.
“I think being a mom made me a better press secretary, and being a press secretary for Donald Trump, I think, made me a better mom,” Sanders said.
