On Thursday’s episode of "The Michael Knowles Show," the host cheered on White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders for standing up to the media.

"What's really nice is that we have people in the White House like Sarah Huckabee Sanders who are fighting back against all of this nonsense," said Knowles. "The Left right now, they're trying to do the Obama trick, trying to give Obama credit for all the good Trump stuff and pretend that Obama never did any of the sort of things that Donald Trump is doing. Sarah Sanders puts an end to that one particularly with regard to the border crisis."

Knowles played a clip of Sanders reminding the press that "in fact, tear gas was used, on average, once per month during the Obama administration for very similar circumstances."

"Once a month, during the Obama administration. How do you like that? How you like them apples," Knowles responded.

"Because now you're seeing it being used because people are throwing rocks at Border Patrol," he said. "They're trying to climb over and invade and run through, so they're using tear gas. Barack Obama used tear gas much, much more, but you didn't hear a peep about it at the time, because the Left doesn't really care. They just hate Trump and they hate when the Conservatives have effective government."

He continued: "But where are the journalists on this? Why don't they mention this? Why don't they talk about it? Finally, we're pushing back. You know, it used to be that ex-presidents didn't criticize the new president, because it's undignified. Well Barack Obama blew that out of the water. He won't stop criticizing. Fine. Let loose. I hope that the White House exposes every single aspect of that horrific, failed presidency."

Once a month, during the Obama administration.

How do you like that? How you like them apples?

Because now you're seeing it being used because people are throwing rocks at Border Patrol. They're trying to climb over and invade and run through so they're using tear gas. Barack Obama used tear gas much, much more, but you didn't hear a peep about it at the time, because the Left doesn't really care. They just hate Trump and they hate when the Conservatives have effective government.

But where are the journalists on this? Why don't they mention this? Why don't they talk about it? Finally, we're pushing back. You know, it used to be that ex-presidents didn't criticize the new president, because it's undignified.

Well Barack Obama blew that out of the water. He won't stop criticizing. Fine. Let loose. I hope that the White House exposes every single aspect of that horrific, failed presidency.
