White House slams Dem. Sen. Sherrod Brown for calling Stephen Miller a ‘white supremacist’

While appearing on CNN Sunday, Democrat Sen. Sherrod Brown called Steve Bannon a white supremacist and said that Stephen Miller, senior adviser to President Donald Trump, “seems” to be a white supremacist.  His proof consisted of unnamed “studies.”  The White House responded sharply to Brown’s slander, the Daily Caller reported.

“I agree that Steve Bannon is a white supremacist and Stephen Miller seems to be,” Brown said, referring to Rep. Frederica Wilson’s comments on Friday that the Trump administration is “full of white supremacists.” “And I know that studies have shown that they have their allies sprinkled around the White House.”

Brown did not cite the alleged studies.

This didn’t sit too well with White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who sharply criticized Brown.

“Senator Brown’s comments are outrageous and slanderous,” she said in a statement. “The nonstop name calling from the left continues to show an inability to build consensus and fix the problems ailing hardworking Americans. Senator Brown needs to understand that when he calls out public servants who are part of the Trump Administration, he is indicting the voters in Ohio themselves who overwhelmingly voted for the President’s agenda.”

“Instead of performing theatre for the extreme left fringe, his time would be better spent fighting for everyday people by supporting the Trump Agenda of pro-worker trade and immigration policies that will raise wages and living standards for all Americans,” she added.

The Daily Caller added:

Brown’s comments come following Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson’s remarks Friday. In an interview with The New York Times, Wilson charged that “The White House is full of white supremacists.”

The spat between Wilson and the White House emerged after Trump made a phone call to Myeshia Johnson, widow of one of the four Green Berets killed by an Islamic State-affiliate in Niger during an operation. Wilson was apparently in the room listening to the call, which was on speakerphone. She later stated that Trump told Johnson that her husband “must’ve known what he signed up for.”

Trump subsequently denied that he made the comment and attacked Wilson in a tweet Sunday, calling her “wacky.”


Brown also got hammered on Twitter:

CNN and the insane left, naturally.  Remember, CNN — the cable outlet now seen by many as the least-trusted name in network news according to a study reported on by the Washington Free Beacon in January — said not too long ago that all of Trump’s voters are white supremacists by default.

Apparently so…
