David Horsey, who is a two time winning Pulitzer Prize winner is a cartoonist and column writer for the Los Angeles Times. He had the audacity to say something publically rude about Sarah Sanders-Huckabee’s weight. On Wednesday, of last week in his column, he said this per Fox News and he has retracted his original rude and crude comments:
“<Sarah Sanders-Huckabee> does not look like the kind of woman” that President Donald Trump would chose for the high-profile role, assuming he would prefer “sleek beauties with long legs and stiletto heels” who could pass for “arm candy” in addition to serving as the White House’s top spokesperson. Dorsey went on to mention that first daughter Ivanka Trump and first Lady Melania Trump are closer to the “Barbie dolls in short, tight skirts” that he envisions Trump preferring at the press briefing podium on a regular basis. “By comparison, Sanders looks more like a slightly chunky soccer mom who organizes snacks for the kids’ games,” Horsey wrote. “Rather than the fake eyelashes and formal dresses she puts on for news briefings, Sanders seems as if she’d be more comfortable in sweats and running shoes.”
Horsey, after receiving major backlash for his unappealing comments, coming from the party that is suppose to “respect” women had this to say on twitter. A half hearted apology then another slam on Sarah:
Horsey then retracted his shameful comment about Sarah and if you click here on the article – this is what you will see – he has removed the entire section regarding Sarah.
“I want to apologize to Times readers — and to Sarah Huckabee Sanders — for a description that was insensitive and failed to meet the standards of our newspaper. It also failed to meet the expectations I have for myself. It surely won’t be my last mistake, but this particular error will be scrupulously avoided in my future commentaries. I’ve removed the offending description.
— David Horsey”
