Sean Spicer to Newsmax TV: Sarah Sanders Treated Worse

(Newsmax TV's "The Joe Pags Show")

By    |   Thursday, 09 August 2018 08:59 PM

Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Thursday said threats against his successor, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, have "exceeded anything" he experienced in the job, lamenting the White House press corps has not expressed any "concern" for her.

In an interview on Newsmax TV's "The Joe Pags Show," the author of "The Briefing" called Sanders' treatment "terrible," including being asked to leave a restaurant where she was having dinner with her family.

"Clearly the threats have exceeded anything that I had," he said. "They don't give you a Secret Service detail for fun . . . the thing that I find fascinating about your question is that there has been little if any concern exhibited."

"I don't think anyone should be threatened for expressing themselves," he added. "That happened to me, but it pales in comparison to what happened to Sarah."

He also lashed out at journalists for making themselves the story — specifically calling out CNN's White House correspondent Jim Acosta.

"Acosta really does want it to be about him," he said, "going all around the late night shows to make his antics about the First Amendment and the freedom of the press — which it is not."

"The issue is not about the policy or the announcement . . . it's about him," he said, lamenting his fellow journalists will not "call each other out."

Spicer also blasted Omarosa Manigault-Newman, the former "Apprentice" star who followed President Donald Trump to the White House, for secretly recording conversations with him to use in her upcoming book.

"I'm utterly disgusted," he said, calling Manigualt-Newman "delusional, disloyal and disgusting" for "using a position of power and trust" to tape the president. "The only one who's got problems and issues is her," he declared.

"I think that [Trump] probably is a little bit hurt, but I don't think that it took a lot to realize . . . she always was that."
