White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders took to Twitter on Friday to condemn the women on ABC’s “The View” for attacks on First Lady Melania Trump.
Sad @TheView continues their disgusting attacks on @FLOTUS. The left’s “war on women” they disagree with is a disgrace. @FLOTUS is strong, accomplished, and has a lot more class than the women who bully her

The women on show criticized the first lady for her comments about the #MeToo movement on Thursday. Melania said people needed to believe women but that proof was also a necessary component during an ABC News interview with Tom LLamas that has yet to air in its entirety.

Sunny Hostin was discussing how sexual assault allegations used to be handled and how they are now on Thursday, and added, “Now you have the First Lady of the United States telling women everywhere your word is not enough.”
Then on Friday, while interviewing Tom Llamas, the reporter who interviewed Melania, guest co-host Yvette Nicole Brown questioned aloud whether it was “possible that she’s not concerned with his mistresses because she was one of them?”
Day 2 of attacks from @TheView. @YNB check your facts before you accuse someone of being a mistress. She’s your @FLOTUS – she deserves your respect & certainly not your lies. Disgusting. #disrespectful #accusation #LiberalMedia @TomLlamasABC @ABCWorldNews
