In a White House press briefing today, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told the media, not to expect the President to back down in the wake of last week’s mail bombs.


She said “The president will continue to draw contrasts. Let’s not forget that these same Democrats have repeatedly attacked the president, whether it was Eric Holder, saying ‘Kick ’em when they’re down,’ whether it was Hillary Clinton saying you can’t be civil until Democrats have control of Congress, or whether it’s Maxine Waters, who encouraged her supporters to get up not just in the president’s face but all administration officials’ faces,” Sanders said Monday at a White House press briefing.

“Those actions are from those Democrats. The president will continue to fight back when these individuals not only attack him, but attack members of his administration and supporters of his administration.”

One reporter asked if the president was capable of toning down his speechSanders responded by saying the media had been unfair as the president had immediately denounced the attacks.


Once again, I’ll remind you that the very first thing was condemn the attacker and the very first thing the media does was blame the president. You guys have a huge responsibility to play in the divisive nature of this country when 90 percent of the coverage of everything this president does is negative, despite the fact that the country is doing extremely well … despite the fact that the president is delivering on exactly what he said he was going to do if elected.

Get ’em, girl.
