On Wednesday, Los Angeles Times political columnist David Horsey went after White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders' looks. The anti-Trump "progressive" body-shamed Sanders, referring to her a "chunky soccer mom," and comparing her body to the "Barbie"-type women within the Trump family.
Sanders “does not look like the kind of woman Donald Trump would chose as his chief spokesperson," wrote Horsey, kicking-off his latest anti-Trump column. The president has "generally exhibited a preference for sleek beauties with long legs and stiletto heels" for "arm candy," he said
The Pulitzer-winning columnist invoked First Lady Melania Trump and — creepily — his daughter Ivanka as the "apotheosis of his type."
"By comparison, Sanders looks more like a slightly chunky soccer mom who organizes snacks for the kids’ games,” wrote Horsey. “Rather than the fake eyelashes and formal dresses she puts on for news briefings, Sanders seems as if she’d be more comfortable in sweats and running shoes.”
Horsey even added an exagerated, unflattering cartoon of Sanders depicted as some sort of Nazi:
This is rather odd commentary coming from such a politically correct progressive who's slammed President Trump for his alleged treatment of women. But, for leftists, when women are on the Right side of the aisle, they don't really count as women.
After Fox News highlighted the story, the LA Times removed the questionable commentary and Horsey offered an apology at the top of the column.
“I want to apologize to Times readers — and to Sarah Huckabee Sanders — for a description that was insensitive and failed to meet the standards of our newspaper. It also failed to meet the expectations I have for myself. It surely won’t be my last mistake, but this particular error will be scrupulously avoided in my future commentaries. I’ve removed the offending description,” wrote the columnist.
