Rosie O’Donnell defended Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from Sarah Sanders after the freshman congresswoman criticized Ivanka Trump for accompanying her father to the G-20 summit.
After a video showing Ivanka alongside her father in a discussion that included French President Emmanuel Macron, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and other leaders was posted by a BBC reporter, Ocasio-Cortez shared it along with a tweet in which she questioned the presidential adviser’s qualifications.
Sanders, who recently stepped down from her role at the White House, fired back at Ocasio-Cortez and sang Ivanka and the president’s praises. This apparently got the attention of O’Donnell, who sent her own response directed at the former press secretary.
“thank god u r leaving the White House - may we never hear ur voice again - and leave AOC alone - she's got all the things u lack - mostly courage and moral clarity - u sold ur soul Sarah - now u gotta live with that,” the former daytime talk show host wrote.
Phoning it in @AOC is wasting your time on Twitter while destroying jobs in NY. @realDonaldTrump & @IvankaTrump actually created millions of new jobs and continue to make the US stronger on the global stage but thank you for reminding Americans everyday why they elected Trump. https://t.co/uGN4GXgAsC— Sarah Huckabee Sanders (@SarahHuckabee) July 1, 2019
It seems as though far-left birds of a feather do flock together after all.
