The hosts were discussing the first lady’s recent interview with ABC News Chief National Affairs Correspondent Tom Llamas, in which she addressed reports about the “alleged infidelities” of her husband.
“I am a mother and first lady,” she was quoted as saying during the interview, “and I have much more important things to think about and to do.”
After playing the clip, Brown raised the question: “Is it possible that she’s not concerned with his mistresses because she was one of them?”
Sanders took to Twitter to fire back at what she termed “disgusting attacks.
“The left’s ‘war on women’ they disagree with is a disgrace,” she wrote. “FLOTUS is strong, accomplished, and has a lot more class than the women who bully her.”
She called the remark “disgusting” before adding that as “your” first lady, “she deserves your respect.”
“My mom taught me that respect is earned. And thankfully we live in a nation — at least for now–where I don’t have to bow down to dear leader or his third wife.”
