Dem. Rep Ted Lieu in Hot Water After Attacking White House Press Secretary

After insulting White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, California Democrat Rep. Ted Lieu appears to be doubling down on his comments.

On Saturday, Sanders weighed in on a recent report revealing that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee paid roughly $9 million to Fusion GPS, the firm that created the controversial Russia dossier.

Sanders also tweeted a link to an article from The Federalist, which talked focused on 10 main details from the dossier and how Democrats were involved in funding the document that sought to connect Trump campaign members to Russian officials.

“The evidence Clinton campaign, DNC & Russia colluded to influence the election is indisputable,” Sanders wrote.

In response to her tweet, Lieu stated Sanders is “dumb as a rock,” while also countering her argument.

Many Twitter users criticized the Democrat for his rude words.

Lieu, though, refused to apologize.

Ami Magazine White House correspondent Jake Turx criticized Lieu and said misogynistic quips weren’t appropriate.

Lieu though, claimed he wasn’t saying anything that the men in the Trump administration hadn’t said before.

After Washington Times reporter Elaina Plott called his remarks gross, Lieu attempted to claim he was trying to make a point.

 

Lieu said he “lifted the phrase from the President of the United States.”
