Sanders defends Trump

Over the last week, Donald Trump has been hit with a onslaught of criticism [VIDEO] in regards to multiple topics at hand. One of the biggest issues facing the president is the reported tension between himself and members of his own administration and Republican Party. In recent days, the former host of "The Apprentice" has been in a war of worlds with Republican Sen.

#Bob Corker, accusing the veteran senator of "begging" him to endorse his reelection bid before he decided to retire at the end of his term. Corker fired back on Twitter, comparing the president to a child and the White House to an "adult daycare center." The two have continued their feud at a time when another report broke detailing #Secretary of State Rex Tillerson allegedly calling the president a "f**king moron," before threatening to resign over the summer. When asked about the incident in an interview with Forbes magazine this week, the commander in chief challenged Tillerson to an IQ test. These issues and more were discussed with Sarah Huckabee Sanders during the October 10 press briefing at the White House.

While taking questions from reporters at the White House on Tuesday, Sarah Huckabee Sanders continued her defense of Donald Trump.

When pressed about the incident with Rex Tillerson and the IQ test challenge, Huckabee replied, "The president certainly never implied that the Secretary of State was not incredibly intelligent," Sanders said. "He made a joke, and nothing more than that," she continued, while adding, "he has full confidence in the Secretary of State."

On the issue of Bob Corker, Sarah Huckabee Sanders deflected over whether or not he should resign as a senator due to his critical remarks about the president, but did put partial blame on him for lending credibility to the Iran deal during the Obama administration. "He may have voted against the deal ultimately, but he not only allowed the deal to happen, he gave it credibility," she said.

Twitter reacts

After the press secretary defended the billionaire real estate mogul over his feuds with Rex Tillerson and Bob Corker, critics of Donald Trump lashed out on social media.

"(SHS) voice is the sound of democracy dyin," one tweet read.

"Sarah Huckabee Sanders looks like an alien. Like, the lizard-skin-under-the-human-suit-eating-rats type," Matt Miner posted. "(SHS) left eyebrow is trying to escape the bullshit the rest of her face is spewing," another Twitter user added.

"And why does Sarah Huckabee Sanders need to glue on false eyelashes to spew out lies & hatred? A lot of gussiing up for nuthin'," an additional tweet noted. "I figured out why (SHS) irritates me so much; it’s her smug disdain for Trump being accountable for the chaos he revels in," a follow-up tweet added. As the negative reaction continued on Twitter, the divide between the political left and right showed no signs of slowing down.
