Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel said President Trump’s tweets Thursday morning showed “he is a human.”
“We’re focused on the policy of healthcare and those things, and there are personal things going on,” McDaniel said in a Bloomberg TV interview, when asked her thoughts on the president’s tweets attacking MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski about her looks.
Senate Republicans are currently revising a healthcare bill to overhaul the Affordable Care Act, which was delayed from a floor vote on Tuesday due to lack of support.
But McDaniel criticized the “Morning Joe” hosts as well, saying, “Day after day … they’ve used that platform for hours to disparage and demean our president.”
“They’re in the media, they’re pushing on him,” McDaniel said in defense of Trump. “And today he said, ‘I’m not gonna take it, I’m gonna fight back.’
“He is a human. He showed that today, but that’s not gonna keep Republicans from focusing on what we need to do from a policy standpoint to help the American people.”
Brzezinski and co-host Joe Scarborough have heavily criticized the president on the show. Brzezinski tweeted back at the president Thursday morning, jabbing at his "little hands."
