Sarah Huckabee Sanders was appointed by President Donald Trump as the new press secretary on Friday, replacing Sean Spicer, who resigned last week. Sanders is now one of several female spokespersons in the Trump administration, as noted by Kerry Picket of the Daily Caller.
The others are Heather Nauert at the State Department, Director of Public Affairs Sarah Isgur Flores at the Justice Department, and assistant to the Secretary of Defense for public affairs Dana W. White. The president also had the first female campaign manager to help score a victory in United States history; Kellyanne Conway helped him win the presidency in 2016 and now serves as Counselor to the President.
Chris Salcedo noted that the media frequently accuses the president of not respecting women, which he said “would come as a shock to all the women who are part of the Trump administration” on today’s “Chris Salcedo’s Show.” Even CNN’s John Kirby tweeted “WH, Pentagon & State all now represented by women spox [spokespersons]. Politics, policy & content aside, this is noteworthy.”
Chris said it is another “eroding of this fake press narrative that they have tried to put out about this president.”
