On Wednesday night, Gov. Mike Huckabee defended his daughter Sarah Huckabee Sanders from recent criticisms of MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski.
Brzezinski went after the women of the White House for not taking a stronger stance against President Trump for his tweet attacking Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). She dismissed First Lady Melania Trump‘s cyberbullying campaign as “the saddest thing” she has ever seen in the White House and urged Ivanka Trump to “go home” because she’s “doing nothing when standing by this president.”
“I was stunned that of all the people who are going to give a lecture on morality and family, and marriage, it’s going to be Mika? I’m sorry, but I just found that stunning,” Huckabee told Martha MacCallum.
He added, “The fact that some people read that tweet and immediately saw something sexual in it says a whole lot more about the people who read it than it did about the president because those are the exact kind of words that he has, in fact, used time and again.”
Huckabee also slammed Brzezinski for saying she felt “sorry” for his daughter, Sarah Huckabee Sanders — who currently serves as Trump’s press secretary. Brzezinski said that the White House press secretary “hasn’t made it” in her “quest of love for country.”
“I’ll probably have to take half a baby aspirin tonight just to be able to get to sleep because Mika Brzezinski attacked my daughter, who is one heck of a strong lady, a great mom, a lovely wife, and a terrific public servant,” he said. “And she deserves better from other women.”
The former Arkansas governor added, “Mika can go pound sand somewhere as far as I’m concerned.”
