White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders didn’t hold back in her critique of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) rebuttal to President Trump’s Oval Office address.
During an interview on “Fox and Friends” Wednesday morning, Sanders called it “frankly, sad” and “ridiculous” that “Democrats want to continue to live in denial and pretend that things that are coming across this border that bring harm to people in this country aren’t happening.”
“They care more about playing politics than they do about protecting Americans. I think what we saw last night was, frankly, pathetic excuse,” she continued. “If this is the face and the future of the Democrat party, I think things are looking really good for Republicans.”
