Morning Joe’s Mika Brzezinski asserted that White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is “helping damage this republic.”
“Hold on, I’ll take this, Joe. Hold on one second, because what makes it even worse. What makes it incredibly bad and dangerous and frankly a danger to our republic is that she’s the one protecting the president who does that every day,” Mika Brzezinski said, “who watches TV every day, and tweets stupidity, lies, conspiracy theories, bullies people, tweeted a conspiracy theory about Joe last week that would have made headlines in any other administration.”
“But, people are so desensitized, that her role is incredibly important, because her role is to promulgate the lies coming out of this White House,” Brzezinski continued, “and I think what she is doing is helping damage this republic.
“I’m sorry, this is where we’re at,” she said as she finished her diatribe.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and CNN’s White House correspondent Jim Acosta got into a verbal argument on the press briefing floor Monday over false reporting. CNN inaccurately reported on the Mueller Russia investigation Friday and discussed the report at length before acknowledging its inaccuracy later in the day. Acosta refused to stop talking after Sanders requested multiple times that she move onto another question.
