‘Outrageous’! WaPo’s resident ‘conservative’ goes after Sarah Sanders, says she deserves ‘life sentence’ of condemnation

A Washington Post columnist has taken her hatred for President Trump to a new level, suggesting that Sarah Sanders be ostracized because she has “disgraced” herself.

Jennifer Rubin, the Post’s alleged “conservative” writer has been an unrelenting voice of criticism against Trump and his administration but her reaction to the latest controversy involving CNN’s Jim Acosta lead to a scathing commentary that torched the White House press secretary in its path.

So much for empowering women.

In a blistering op-ed for The Washington Post published on Thursday, Rubin blasted Sanders for accusing Acosta of “placing his hands” on a White House intern during a contentious press conference on Wednesday. Acosta’s press pass was pulled Wednesday after the heated back and forth with Trump as the CNN correspondent continued to argue with the president even after Trump tried calling on another reporter.

Acosta refused to relinquish the microphone, even briefly wrangling with a White House intern who tried unsuccessfully to retrieve it and move it to another reporter.

With Acosta’s defiant behavior and accusations that he was physically aggressive with the intern – which he denied – White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced that his press credentials were being yanked.

Rubin suggested Acosta could file a lawsuit against Trump and then declared “there is absolutely no reason to attend Sanders’s briefings” since they “do not impart information but instead use the press as a forum to abuse and threaten reporters and spread misinformation.”

 

“Sanders whines that the press is too critical or too mean or something. She can think whatever she pleases, but she is an employee of the American people and has taken an oath to uphold the Constitution like every other White House employee. She has no right to use her office to lie to the American people, let alone to violate the First Amendment,” Rubin wrote in her continued attack on Sanders.

The so-called conservative writer, who wrote a break-up letter to the GOP in 2016 after Trump was nominated, went as far as suggesting Sanders had “disgraced herself and should be denied the normal presumption of good faith accorded to past White House press secretaries.”

“No responsible news outlet should hire her; employers making hiring decisions have every reason to shun her,” Rubin concluded.

And Rubin’s contempt for the White House press secretary is nothing new, as she declared back in July that Sanders should be harassed publicly as a “life sentence.”

Her personal attack sparked much outrage on Twitter where Rubin was called out for her “divisive drivel.”
