NBC’s Andrea Mitchell: Sarah Sanders Deserves an Apology, Was ‘Grossly Insulted’ at WHCD

NBC’s Andrea Mitchell is taking some heat for her tweet demanding an apology be given to Press Secretary Sarah Sanders by the White House Correspondents’ Association for comedian Michelle Wolf‘s jokes.

While Mitchell isn’t the first person to push for an apology following Wolf’s routine, which included mocking remarks about Sanders’ physical appearance and the sound of her name, not everyone agrees a mea culpa is warranted:

Despite backlash to Mitchell’s call for an apology, several other members of the left-leaning media have echoed criticisms of Saturday night’s speech, including The New York Times‘ Maggie Haberman, MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski and ABC’s Jonathan Karl.
