Sarah Sanders hits the media’s double standard on Biden’s press team: the “real war against women” is on the left

After experiencing harsh criticism as Trump’s White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders said Tuesday that the “real war against women” is being fought by the left against conservative women.

– I was the first mother to ever serve as a White House press secretary, and instead of all the praise [Biden’s] appointments were relentlessly attacked by the media, ”Sanders told Fox & Friends.

“President Trump not only empowered me, but also empowered other women in the administration’s many leadership roles, working moms, and didn’t get praise for it, so they attacked me and so did we.”


Sanders responded by the election of President-elect Joe Biden to a lingerie women’s communications group led by campaign communications director Kate Bedingfield.

Bedingfield will be the communications director for Biden White House. Jen Psaki, a longtime spokesman for democracy, will be his press secretary.

Biden also plans to appoint Neera Tanden, president and CEO of the Center for American Progress, the Liberal Brain Trust, as director of the Office of Administration and Budget, a person familiar with the transition process, given anonymity to speak freely in internal deliberations.


Sanders said conservative women are not embraced by Democrats.

– I said it often and keep going. Democrats always want to talk about war against women, but the real war against women is being waged by Democrats and the media, who are attacking conservative women and anyone who has supported this President. It’s utterly outrageous, and the media bias is fully visible, ”Sanders said.

He predicted that reporters would find “softball issues” with the Biden administration, saying his successors, Stephanie Grisham and Kayleigh McEnany, were also working moms.

“This is a president who has empowered women and empowered working mothers into his administration, and has really put forward policies that have helped women perform better across the country. We have seen more women go back to work and we have seen more women take on more roles and jobs across the country under this administration, ”she said.
