White House press secretary Sarah Sanders called Democrats' calls to impeach President Donald Trump "simply sad" and said Monday party members have been trying to find ways to attack him since 2016, when he defeated Hillary Clinton for the White House.
"They got beat because they had a bad candidate and we had a great candidate," Sanders told Fox News' "Fox & Friends." "Our candidate had a better message, a better vision, and outworked his opponent. They have been losing every day since."
Instead, Democrats could be working with Trump to "solve some of the big problems," Sanders said. "They have become not just an embarrassment for their party but an embarrassment for public service because they are not providing the service which they were elected to actually fulfill."
She also slammed CNN's April Ryan, after the reporter Friday called for Sanders to be fired after special counsel Robert Mueller said in his report Sanders had lied when she told reporters "countless" members of the FBI welcomed Trump's decision to fire former FBI Director James Comey.
Sanders took particular offense at Ryan's saying "you have to start lopping the heads off" when a lack of credibility is found.
"I have had reporters say a lot of things about me," she said. "They've said I should be choked. They've said I should deserve a lifetime of harassment. I certainly never had anybody say I should be decapitated — this takes us to a new low even for the liberal media. I think it just once again proves why this journalist isn't taken seriously."
