Cartoonist David Horsey of the Los Angeles Times took the low road in his Wednesday column, choosing to make fun of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ appearance.

In trying to goad President Trump on being a misogynist, Horsey instead makes himself look like one, referring to Sanders’ looks as a reason he was surprised she got the job.

“Sarah Huckabee Sanders does not look like the kind of woman Donald Trump would choose as his chief spokesperson. Much like Roger Ailes when he was stocking the Fox News lineup with blond Barbie dolls in short, tight skirts, the president has generally exhibited a preference for sleek beauties with long legs and stiletto heels to represent his interests and act as his arm candy.

“Trump’s daughter Ivanka and wife Melania are the apotheosis of this type. By comparison, Sanders looks more like a slightly chunky soccer mom who organizes snacks for the kids’ games. 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. Yet, even if Trump privately wishes he had a supermodel for a press secretary, he is lucky to have Sanders.”
