White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest angrily addressed Donald Trump’s proposal on temporarily banning Muslims from entering the U.S. at a news conference on Tuesday.
Josh Earnest said, “The fact is, that what Donald Trump said yesterday disqualifies him from serving as president,” spokesman Josh Earnest said, suggesting to reporters that his words were fundamentally anti-American.
Earnest denounced Trump’s “carnival barker routine” which included “outright lies” and mocked the Republican frontrunner for having “fake hair.” He said:
“The Trump campaign, for months now, has had a dustbin of history-like quality to it, from the vacuous sloganeering to the outright lies to even the fake hair, the whole carnival barker routine that we’ve seen for some time now.”
He said Trump’s rhetoric is toxic and offensive, and he called out the other Republican presidential candidates for not condemning Trump.
“What he said is disqualifying and any Republican who’s too fearful of the Republican base to admit it has no business serving as president either,” the press secretary said.
