The media is furious that Brett Kavanaugh will be confirmed. They thought they had finally beat Trump at something until Trump ignored his advisers and went on the offensive.
He stunned them and cowed them and caused outrage in media circles but he is winning and Kavanaugh will walk through by a slim margin.
The rest, as they say, is history save for the media’s sour grapes.
As reported by Newsweek:
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was a “complete disappointment” and made “rotten to the core” by President Donald Trump after she defended Trump’s mocking of Christine Blasey Ford, according to Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski on Thursday.
Sanders said on Wednesday during a White House press briefing that Trump had merely “stated facts” about Ford’s testimony and blamed Democrats for victimizing Ford and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh over allegations of sexual assault.
But Brzezinski, who has frequently chastised Trump for his behavior towards women, said she was confounded by Sanders’s decision to defend the president’s comments.
“I really don’t understand Sarah Huckabee Sanders. I don’t get it,” Brzezinski said. “Some would say that you’re basically a flack for a misogynist who is a proud predator, who brags about grabbing women by the genitals. As a woman in a powerful position, I’m sorry, you’re a complete disappointment. A complete disappointment.”
Brzezinski continued: “There is absolutely no excuse for defending a president for mocking a victim of sexual misconduct, a victim of something, a woman who is suffering. You can’t say that’s wrong? You have been made rotten to the core by this presidency.”
