Earlier this week Democrat Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) called President Obama “disrespectful” and implied that the President was being sexist when attacking Senator Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) resistance to his new trade treaty.
“I think the president was disrespectful to her by the way he did that. I think that the president has made this more personal than he needed to…
I think by just calling her ‘another politician’. I’m not going to get into more details. I think referring to her as first name, when he might not have done that for a male senator, perhaps? I’ve said enough.”
Well, Brown’s attack did not make people in the White House very happy and they are now calling on him to apologize to the President!
Jim Acosta: Earlier this morning on one of the morning talk shows you said that Senator Brown should apologize to the president. Has that happened? Has he apologized?
Josh Earnest: That’s not what I — I didn’t dictate how he should conduct himself. I did observe what many others have observed, that Senator Brown is a stand-up guy. And given the opportunity to review the comments that seemed like they were made in same haste, I feel confident that he’ll do the right thing and apologize.
Jim Acosta: That has no occurred yet, as far as you know?
Josh Earnest: I’m not sure if it has or not. I wouldn’t necessarily expect a public apology, but we’ll see how Senator Brown chooses to pursue this.
I do enjoy watching Democrats argue with each other. It’s just nice to see them using their tired name-calling to attack each other instead of Republicans…
