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.
Seems to me, our side can’t say John McCain is gonna die.
Im sure the good people of New Hampshire will be pleased to know that the Live Free or Die State has just become the F- you state
Hassan is just the typical liberal puppet. Michael Bloomberg spent $10,000,000 to get her elected, she's basically on his payroll.
New Hampshire voters deserve Senators who care about the citizens of New Hampshire, not their out of state puppet masters.
I sent her an email immediately after learning it was her intern. She hasnt responded and I dont expect she will. She doesnt give a shit about New Hampshire conservatives.
Remember Rep Wilson and "You lie!"?
Now the unwashed masses, the msm and even members of Congress are encouraged to slander in the vilest way, insult and even threaten violence against the President and his family.
Not only does she have the typical lib look but also British teeth.
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.

He didn’t know our modern day democrats...I give him a pass.
“When Truman dropped 2 bombs that killed approx. 250,000 people in a couple of weeks The Demas didnt even bat an eye.”
The dems then are not the dems now.
“Caitlyn is a c...”
“I think its really important to understand that this behavior shouldnt be equated with the presidents destructive and divisive actions, ..”
Name one you filthy democrat.
Primary her when she runs again. Greet her with protest signs everytime she comes home.
The low life leftist speaks and all I hear is the same old tired garbage spewing out of her mouth like a bad case of diarrhea.

We know most of the “children” who crash the U.S. Borders are separated from their family by their families. What kind of people toss out their kids like trash? What kind of people arrange for human smugglers to escort their kids thousand miles to the U.S. Border? It is a fact that girls are raped sometimes multiple times by the human smugglers. Why is that ok?
The F bomb intern working for N.H. Senator Maggie Hassan has directed her anger towards the wrong target.
With teeth like those, my guess is her nickname is “the organ grinder”.
Be a shame if someone gave Mags the baby Harp seal cure...
Parents who are US citizens are also separated from their children when they involve their children in criminal activity, and you certainly don't hear Democrats complaining about that when it is a Democrat doing the separating.
Maggie Hassan had nothing to say about Barack Obama's policy of separating children back in 2014, and I never heard her say a word about the hundreds, and perhaps thousands of children separated from their parents by the employees she supervised as Governor in New Hampshire.
