White House defends Trump’s ‘face-lift’ tweet: ‘Fighting fire with fire’

The White House defended President Trump’s rant Thursday on Twitter against the hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” saying the president was “fighting fire with fire.”

White House principal deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said show co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski have “attacked mercilessly” the president, including accusing him of having a mental disorder.

“I think he’s been very clear that when he gets attacked, he is going to hit back,” she told reporters at the White House. “I think the American people elected somebody who’s tough, who’s smart and who’s a fighter — and that’s Donald Trump.”

        Fuck them all. President Donald Trump was elected to push back the sodomites, fascists, communists and every bloody prick who wants to take away our right to be left alone to live a decent, righteous and G_D fearing Christian life. None of us are perfect but we know what free will is.

          While I agree completely with your entire sentiment. I wouldn’t even care if you weren’t a G_D fearing Christian, so long as you led a moral life and didn’t try and inflict your deviancy on others. FREEDOM is the thing! Like you said Eff them all!

    This is nothing more than the Donald being the Donald. We elected him because we felt the dire need for a bull in Washington’s china shop, and after all this time, many politicians and media pundits still don’t get it.

  • Apparently it’s written in the First Amendment somewhere concerning Free Speech:

    “Where outrageous and offensive speech is concerned, only Democrats, Left-wingers, Marxists, Islamists, and MSNBC are permitted by this Constitution to engage in offensive speech. Conservatives, Christians, Jews, libertarians, Republicans, and Fox News are forbidden to engage in offensive speech, as the forefathers have pre-ordained”. (Joe Scarborough — Founding Father, 1791).
