Trump’s Spokeswoman Just Told America’s Top Black Reporter To Get Her Mind Out Of Gutter (WATCH)

This morning, after multiple prominent Senators, including Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Ron Wyden (D-OR), Cory Booker (D-NJ), and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), called on Trump to resign amid renewed scrutiny over his past sexual harassment allegations.

Trump, however, opted to focus only on the female Senator, Kirsten Gillibrand, in an early-morning tweet.

When Washington, D.C. bureau chief for American Urban Radio Networks and CNN political analyst asked White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders if there was any sexist undertone to what amounts to a blatantly sexist tweet, Sanders struck back.

Sanders, true to form, swiftly attacked Ryan for drawing the clearly obvious link by telling her that her “mind is in the gutter” if she read it that way.

When Ryan followed up, Sanders justified Trump’s blatantly chauvinistic attack by claiming that Trump has used similar terminology when attacking other Americans before. In other words, the Press Secretary claimed that the President’s attack was justified because he’s launched similar attacks in the past.

It is especially fitting that on the heels of Trump’s overtly sexist attack on the only female Senator to call for his resignation, his Press Secretary would then launch a racist attack on the only black reporter to address it.

The Trump administration has shown, on more than on occasion, that it’s bigotry knows no bounds. No amount of petulant attacks, however, will stop justice from being brought to light.
