Sarah Sanders didn’t expect ’99 percent’ of harassment would come from women

Former White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders appeared on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” on Friday and revealed she still faces public harassment over her support of President Donald Trump, which should surprise no one. What should come as a surprise is that Sanders says most of that harassment comes from fellow women.

“What I find interesting is 99 percent of the people who come over to say something negative, and to attack you, are women. I find that very startling from a group of people that claim to be the champions of women empowerment,” Sanders said.

She added that despite being the first mother to serve as press secretary, “women attack me relentlessly, instead of being proud that we have more women doing those types of jobs.”

Her strategy for dealing with these public haters? Sanders said they are usually looking to get a reaction, so she just tries to “nod, smile and say ‘thank you for your time'”

Sanders said she occasionally gets people coming up to her and saying “nasty things,” but nothing compares to the time she was famously kicked out of a Red Hen restaurant in Virginia last year.

Sanders said she will definitely be supporting Trump in the 2020 presidential election.

“The things that are coming out of Democrats’ mouths these days, I can’t even process it they’re so stupid,” she said.

The former press secretary said she is also currently working on a memoir about her two years in the Trump administration. It is expected to release in the fall of 2020 from publisher St. Martin’s Press.

The memoir will be about “the most dramatic and challenging moments” during her time in the White House, as well as dealing with “the media, family, faith, and performing an all-consuming and highly visible job while raising her young family.”

Sanders will be telling never-before-told stories about her time in the White House, including what it’s like to travel with the president. She also said she will be addressing the Red Hen incident, as well as being mocked to her face at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

While on “Fox & Friends,” Sanders was speaking in front of a special live audience of first responders. The first responders were invited as a way to honor the work of first responders to combat the effects of Hurricane Dorian, we well as honor the upcoming anniversary of 9/11.

Sanders’ appearance on “Fox & Friends” also marked her debut as a Fox News contributor, a gig she landed not long after exiting her position with the White House.

Sanders’ memoir will likely make a big splash when it drops, especially considering the fact that it drops next year when the presidential race will be more heated than ever.

Another former administration official, Jim Mattis, has also been making waves with a memoir, but not for the reasons people think. While many expected the former secretary of defense to go after Trump in the book, his harshest criticisms were thrown at Barack Obama and presidential hopeful Joe Biden.
