Early today former Governor Mike Huckabee defended his daughter Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Twitter, after the vicious attacks on her by comedian Michelle Wolf at The White House Correspondents Dinner.

Mike also praised New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman and all other reporters for denouncing comedian Michelle Wolf’s jokes aimed at his daughter, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders.

Mike defended Sarah this morning on twitter and shared his ‘sincere and heartfelt’ appreciation to Haberman.

He thanked the WH correspondent for having the ‘guts to publicly denounce the vicious, vile attack’ on Sarah at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

Mike praised his daughter Sarah for handling it professionally and added, ‘I pray her kids never see that. I pray more they never bully another person like that.’

On Saturday night, New York Times White House correspondent Maggie Haberman tweeted that it was ‘impressive’ that Sarah Sanders remained calm and didn’t walk out when she was attacked for both her appearance and job performance.

During the WH Correspondents’ Dinner, Michelle Wolf likened Sarah to Aunt Lydia from the show, ‘The Handmaid’s Tale,’ played by the actress Ann Dowd.

‘I actually really like Sarah. I think she’s very resourceful. Like, she burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smokey eye,’ Wolf said. ‘Maybe she’s born with it. Maybe it’s lies.’

Mike Huckabee also criticized the WH Correspondents’ Dinner because instead of celebrating the 1st Amendment they celebrated ‘bullying, vulgarity, and hate.’

‘They got all dressed up so they would look nicer when they had a hired gun savagely attack their guests. Do they really wonder why America has no respect for them? Sad!’ He tweeted.

President Trump didn’t attend the celebration because of his campaign rally in Michigan.
