White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was asked on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday about the constant attacks from celebrities on President Trump. Trump, who is preparing to give the State of the Union Tuesday night, has been recently attacked at a star-studded People’s State of the Union, which was organized by Michael Moore Monday night.
Celebrities compared the Trump administration to “Nazis” and “oppressors.”
Trump was also a regular target of the Grammy’s, which aired Sunday.
When asked how the president handles the criticism, Sanders was blunt in her response.
“Their message is one of negativity and frankly, I think a little bit of delusion,” Sanders said, “We’ve had an incredible first year, the economy is booming, ISIS is on the run, we are remaking the judiciary, this has been a historic year by any way you look at it.”
Sanders said she felt “sorry” for people in Hollywood for “how out of touch” they are.
“They are so focused on hating the president that they are missing all of the great things that are happening in this country and I think that’s really sad for them and I think they are missing an opportunity to actually bring people together and show a better side of themselves.
When asked if Trump, who was a celebrity for most of his life, is “bothered when a group of fellow celebrities are “ripping him,” Sanders swung right at Hillary Clinton:
If Americans cared what celebrities thought, Hillary Clinton would be president. They clearly don’t. She brought out every A-list, B-list and C-list celebrity she could find to help her build crowds and it didn’t matter. Americans wanted someone to come in and shake up Washington. That’s exactly what president Trump did.
The press secretary ended with this barb: “We are really excited about talking about our successes of the first year but even more so, what we are going to accomplish over the next seven years.”
