Former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders offered an eye-opening anecdote that demonstrates President Donald Trump’s sexist frat-boy behavior.
Huckabee Sanders has largely remained tight-lipped about her former boss, but her new memoir about her time in the White House includes a disturbing story about Trump telling her that she should “take one for the team” and have sex with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un to improve diplomatic relations between our nations.
It all began after Trump offered a breath mint to Kim Jong Un during one of their failed meetings in 2018. Kim accepted and the two chatted about women’s soccer. That’s when Kim winked at Huckabee Sanders.
“We made direct eye contact and Kim nodded and appeared to wink at me,” she wrote. “I was stunned. I quickly looked down and continued taking notes. All I could think was, ‘What just happened? Surely Kim Jong Un did not just mark me!?'”
It’s a strange incident to be sure, which is why Huckabee Sanders immediately reported it to Trump and then-White House chief of staff John Kelly.
Unfortunately, Trump reacted like a frat bro.
“Kim Jong Un hit on you!” Trump said. “He did! He f*cking hit on you!”
“Sir, please stop,” Huckabee Sanders pleaded.
That request should have been enough to make Trump stop. Instead, he went even further and reached a level of inappropriateness that would get most people fired for sexual harassment.
“Well, Sarah, that settles it,” Trump said. “You’re going to North Korea and taking one for the team! Your husband and kids will miss you, but you’ll be a hero to your country!”
Both Trump and Kelly laughed.
This is NOT how any woman should be treated at work, especially at the White House. Yet Huckabee Sanders continued to cover for Trump and lie for him every day. And one wonders how much more abuse she suffered before she finally stepped down and how many other women at the White House have similar stories about Trump to tell.
This is a prime example of how Trump treats women like sex objects that can be used and abused as he sees fit. Conservatives should be appalled by this, especially since Huckabee Sanders is one of their own. At a time when Trump is losing women voters in droves, Huckabee Sanders’ story could open the flood gates.
