Despite mounting pressure from Granite State political leaders, Sen. Maggie Hassan is defending her decision to keep intern Caitlin Marriott on the job and instead used the interns profane attack on the president as an opportunity to attack Donald Trump.
Calls for Marriotts firing began as soon as news broke that the person who shouted Mr. President, F you! at the Commander-in-Chief as he walked through the Capitol building was an intern in Hassans DC office. Instead, Hassan has suspended the intern for a week and had her ID badge revoked, and she defended her decision by pointing to the behavior of the president.
I think its really important to understand that this behavior shouldnt be equated with the presidents destructive and divisive actions, like ripping health care away from people by failing to protect pre-existing conditions; going out, gutting the ACA; like separating children from their parents at our southern border, Hassan said in an interview with the Washington Post.
When asked how should would respond to complaints that the punishment for a student intern shouting profanity at the President of the United States should be more severe, Hassan replied: I would point them to the fact that she has been held accountable for her actions that she took full responsibility for and thats an example I wish our president would [follow].
Turning the intern incident into an attack on Trump appears to be a page from the Democratic Partys playbook. NH Democratic Party chairman Ray Buckley also responded to requests for comment about Marriotts attack by commenting on Trump.
Between their heartless attempts to kick millions off of health insurance to Trumps racist policy of locking up children in cages, it is the Republican Party that has created a culture of hate, Buckley said.
New Hampshire Republicans from Governor Chris Sununu to the grassroots GOP have called out Hassan for her decision to keep the intern on the job.
I wouldnt tolerate it in my office, Sununu said of the incident. There would be a termination.
The NHGOP launched a social media push to get voters to call Hassans office and demand the intern be fired.
NHGOP Party Chair Jeanie Forrester released a statement:
The revelation that it was indeed Senator Maggie Hassans intern who shouted an obscenity at our President in the Capitol Rotunda should disgust, anger, and embarrass Granite Staters. But, alas, it should not be a surprise. Just this week, Democrat Congresswoman Maxine Watters encouraged violent protest, and White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was thrown out of a Virginia restaurant just for working for the Trump administration. Democrats are showing they dont want to work with anyone to solve our nations biggest challenges. They would rather obstruct and point fingers. Senator Hassan owes it to her constituents, to the U.S. Senate, to the Office of the President, and to future interns to send the right message.
Sen. Hassans spokesperson Aaron Jacobs responded to requests about guidance given to her interns by citing a statement given to them when they begin their service: Use proper language and exhibit appropriate behavior at all times.
When they dont, the punishment is not terminationat least, if theyre directing that improper behavior at the president.
Commie scum act like commie scum, what a surprise
IOW the intern vas just following orders!
The Left is deeply, deeply offended by any of Trump’s tweets.
But the intern?? What’s the fuss about dropping a few f-bombs on the president??
Had an intern for a GOP senator done the same to Obama, the media would still be talking about it.
The foolish and wicked practice of profane cursing and swearing is a vice so
mean and low that every person of sense and character detests and despises it.
- George Washington -
Loves her some ignorant pig
Total genetic Democrat, wow!
Good grief! Is that the best pic of her they have?
She hasn’t taken full responsability. She has lost nothing. She is elevated as a hero.
i didnt want to look at any libs fugly face right now or anytime...
They would be in jail with some trumped up charge and ruined for life

So that’s what bad old Trump did.
When Truman dropped 2 bombs that killed approx. 250,000 people in a couple of weeks The Demas didn’t even bat an eye.
They need to Red Hen/Blue Phoenix Cafe this old hippy of a congresswoman to make her learn a valuable lesson.
Why give her clearance back?
Caitlyn is a “cutter”
Look it up
Zero class or decency among modern Dems.
Turn about is fair play, dear.
You reap what you sow. Don’t squeal when the same comes back at you.
Needs a psych eval and therapy
Not a capitol hill job and clearance
Congressmen pretty much give clearance to their own staff. It’s a joke, as witnessed by the Awan IT scandal.
