Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham appeared on Fox News where she responded over outrage from the left over President Trump retweeting a joke photoshopped meme of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer wearing Islamic clothing in front of an Iranian flag.
The caption says “The corrupted Dems trying their best to come to the Ayatollah’s rescue.”
Grisham says Trump is making the point that Democrats have been have been “parroting Iranian talking points and almost taking the side of terrorists and those who were out to kill the Americans.”
The president is facing criticism after retweeting an image of Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi doctored to show them in Muslim garb, captioned, “The corrupted Dems trying their best to come to the ayatollah’s rescue.”
One Twitter reaction read this way, Stephanie, “Why the actual hell is the president of the United States using the way I and millions of other Americans dress and the religious beliefs that we hold as a slur? This absolutely must be condemned by congressional lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.”
Why would the president take even the time to retweet something like this?
I think the president is making clear that the Democrats are — have been parroting Iranian talking points and almost taking the side of terrorists and those who were out to kill the Americans.
I think the president was making the point that the Democrats seem to hate him so much that they’re willing to be on the side of countries and leadership of countries who want to kill Americans.
