Sen. Sherrod Brown has echoed the accusations by Congresswoman Frederica Wilson who told the New York Times the White House is “full of white supremacists.”
When asked about Wilson’s comments, Sen. Brown said, “I agree that Steve Bannon is a white supremacist, and Stephen Miller seems to be.” Ohio Treasurer and United States Senate candidate Josh Mandel released a statement saying Brown’s comments are “desperate, false and beneath the dignity of his office.” Mandel demands Senator Brown apologize for his remarks.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders made the following statement regarding Senator Brown’s accusations:
“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.”
Democrats are continuously pulling from their same playbook, insulting Trump and his administration. Like Sanders alluded, all this is doing is insulting the men and women who voted for President Trump and continue to alienate and divide Americans. Liberals cry for acceptance and tolerance, but only when it is their viewpoints being accepted. These liberal tactics are good for the Republican Party: the longer it takes Democrats to realize their vicious rhetoric doesn’t play well with moderate, hard-working Americans, the better. It seems as though their only move for the 2018 midterms is to insult President Trump. That didn’t work in 2016 and it won’t work in 2018. One can only hope the Senator Brown continues to make these mistakes and be voted out of office next year. The people of Ohio deserve better.
