“Fox & Friends” host Ainsley Earhardt and Independent Women’s Voice CEO Heather Higgins defended Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Friday.

Earhardt brought up how critical some news outlets were toward the former White House press secretary during her time at the job.

“She is a mother. Her kids read these headlines. She was serving our country in the White House,” Earhardt said. “Yeah, you might not agree with her politics, but what a phenomenal job and a tough job. We should support her.”

However, Higgins responded by saying that the media was attempting to put down those who agree with President Donald Trump.

“Remember: for the left, all politics is personal, right, and the personal is political,” said Higgins. “So it’s about delegitimizing voices that they don’t approve of.”

Watch:

She pointed out that the criticism may be caused by a different perspective and that it sometimes means that Trump supporters are criticized.

“It basically tells you that it’s OK to treat people who disagree with you with disdain and contempt and sort of write them out of the picture,” Higgins said. “And that’s all driven by a very different worldview of who we are as people and what to expect.”

As IJR Red reported, Sanders has faced constant criticism during her time as press secretary. One example is during the 2018 White House Correspondents’ Dinner, comedienne Michelle Wolf insulted Sanders during her stand-up routine.

Watch:

“Every time Sarah steps up to the podium I get excited because I’m not really sure what we’re gonna get,” she said. “You know, a press briefing, a bunch of lies, or divided into softball teams.”

After it was announced the Sanders was stepping down, a CNN op-ed was posted saying that she “failed in almost every aspect of the job.” However, she was praised by Trump for being a great asset during her time in the position.

CNN’s opinion means nothing. If anyone fails and is failing according to their stats it’s CNN. Sarah Sanders is a breath of fresh air. Looked forward to her snappy comebacks. She would make a great Governor.

Sarah did a great job dealing with the vile reporters. No one should have to take the abuse and insults that rained down on her. My temper would not handle it well!

I will really miss Sarah too. She was a class act in a very hostile environment and yet she did not let the liberal media intimidate her one bit! Loved watching her take them down a notch or two 👍

Sarah Sanders is absolutely one of my heroes. She stood poised and stayed classy during every briefing, which is far above how I would’ve dealt with the hatefulness that was slung at her every day. She. Is. Awesome! I’ll miss her.
