Former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders unloaded on controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Sunday evening; saying the New York politician was “destroying jobs” for working families throughout the five boroughs.
“It may be shocking to some, but being someone’s daughter actually isn’t a career qualification. It hurts our diplomatic standing when the President phones it in & the world moves on. The US needs our President working the G20. Bringing a qualified diplomat couldn’t hurt either,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on social media,
“Phoning it in @AOC is wasting your time on Twitter while destroying jobs in NY. @realDonaldTrump & @IvankaTrump actually created millions of new jobs and continue to make the US stronger on the global stage but thank you for reminding Americans everyday why they elected Trump,” fired-bac Sanders.

“How do you respond to Republicans who are talking about physical barriers being part of any package that deals with the actual crisis in terms of the traffic coming across?” asked a reporter from the Intercept.
“If they want to do that, that’s fine… but they should not be using a humanitarian crisis as a bargaining chip to make sure they pursue their little torture project,” fired-back Ocasio-Cortez.
Yad Vashem, the official Israel Holocaust Center in Jerusalem responded this week to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ recent comments; urging the far-left lawmaker to “learn” about concentration camps.
“@AOC Concentration camps assured a slave labor supply to help in the Nazi war effort, even as the brutality of life inside the camps helped assure the ultimate goal of ‘extermination through labor.’ Learn about concentration camps,” posted Yad Vashem.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez refused to back-away from her outrageous comments regarding American ‘Concentration Camps’ along the US-Mexico border Wednesday; saying the United States has a “shameful history.”
“The US ran concentration camps before, when we rounded up Japanese people during WWII. It is such a shameful history that we largely ignore it. These camps occur throughout history. Many refuse to learn from that shame, but here we are today. We have an obligation to end them,” posted AOC on Twitter.
“Not one dime should go to DHS for building these camps as they detain children & families. Congressional appropriations season is now. That means it’s money time – we‘re voting to fund federal government programs. We should not fund the caging of kids & families. Pretty simple,” she added.
SARAH SMACKDOWN: Huckabee Sanders Calls Pelosi’s Budget Bill a ‘Non-Starter’
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders slammed House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s potential budget bill Tuesday evening; calling her plan to re-open the federal government a “non-starter” because it fails to fund the president’s border wall.
“Speaker Designate Nancy Pelosi released a plan that will not re-open the government because it fails to secure the border and puts the needs of other countries above the needs of our own citizens,” said Sanders.
“The Pelosi plan is a non-starter because it does not fund our homeland security or keep American families safe from human trafficking, drugs, and crime,” she added.
Sanders’ comments echo similar statements made by Pelosi last week; when she called the White House’s tough-stance on border security a “non-starter” for Democrats poised to take control of Congress this week.

SARAH SMACKDOWN: Huckabee Sanders EDUCATES Jim Acosta On ‘FREE PRESS’
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders unloaded on CNN’s Jim Acosta this week; blasting the correspondent over the responsibilities of a “fair and free press.”
“Are you trying to say that this administration is the champion of a free press?” asked the White House correspondent.
“As I stated a moment ago, we support a free press, but we also support a fair press. I think those things should go hand in hand and there’s a certain responsibility by the press to report accurate information,” fired-back Sanders.
“Is there a responsibility on the part of the President?” interrupted Acosta.
“I think a number of people in this room do that every single day. They do their very best to provide fair and accurate information,” she added.
