White House defends Trump's 'human scum' remark

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said Thursday that President Trump does not regret calling “Never Trump” Republicans “human scum” and said they “deserve strong language like that.”

“The people who are against him, and who have been against him and working against him since the day they took office are just that,” Grisham said during an appearance on “Fox & Friends” Thursday morning. “It is horrible that people are working against a president who’s delivering results for this country and has been since day one.”

“The fact that people continue to try and negate anything that he’s doing and take away from the good work he’s doing on behalf of the American people, they deserve strong language like that,” Grisham continued.

Trump on Wednesday declared that “Never Trump” Republicans – Republicans who are vocally opposed to him and his agenda – were “human scum.” Trump also accused one of the career officials testifying as a witness in House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, William Taylor, of being a “Never Trumper Diplomat” and said he wished his administration would stop hiring people who do not support his political agenda.

Grisham asserted Thursday that Trump is contending with a “witch hunt” – echoing a term the president has used to describe both special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation and, more recently, the impeachment inquiry.

“The president has said there are some very, very good people in the intel community, but also he has made no secret since against the day he took office that this has been a witch hunt against him,” Grisham said.

“There are some really terrible people in the deep state working against him, and working against this country. This is dangerous for the country,” she said.

    The people who are dangerous to this country right now are Trump and his supporters.

    “It is horrible that people are working against a president who’s delivering results for this country and has been since day one.”

    What results?

    And by the way, it is not the job of Republicans in congress to defend and protect Trump whenever he’s in trouble. Their obligation is to uphold the Constitution and to deliver for the voters who elected them. Congressional Republicans are not his employees.
