Sarah Sanders is a very pretty woman and she is smarter than anyone else in that press room. So for anyone to say such a disrespectful thing is beyond me. People who say insulting and unkind things about others only have LOW SELF-ESTEEM!
On Wednesday, the Los Angeles Times published a piece written by David Horsey, which criticized White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders. However, the piece went after Sanders’s appearance by calling her a “slightly chunky soccer mom.”
Much like Roger Ailes when he was stocking the Fox News lineup with blond Barbie dolls in short, tight skirts, the president has generally exhibited a preference for sleek beauties with long legs and stiletto heels to represent his interests and act as his arm candy.
Trump’s daughter Ivanka and wife Melania are the apotheosis of this type. By comparison, Sanders looks more like a slightly chunky soccer mom who organizes snacks for the kids’ games.
The cheap shot drew many people to react on Twitter rip the author apart:
really? with this as the illustration? “slightly chunky soccer mom” seems tame. pic.twitter.com/o7hXpbxgSE

Since then, Horsey has issued an apology at the top of the piece:
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.
Sarah is brilliant. She can handle anything the ignorant reporters throw at her with dignity. She has an ingenious way to know when to cut them off from their stupidity. She never lets it show when they get to push her too far. She CAN HANDLE HER JOB LIKE NO ONE ELSE COULD.
