Other Twitter users responded to Mike Huckabee, letting him know their gratitude for both Sanders and Huckabee's times in office.
Take a look:
Fox News has more details on what Mike Huckabee had to say on Sarah Sanders' decision to step down at Press Secretary:
President Trump announced on Thursday that White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders will be stepping down from her post before the month is over, and Sanders' father, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, said his daughter is thankful for the "experience of a lifetime."
Calling Sanders a "warrior," Huckabee told "America's Newsroom" on Friday that he is proud of his daughter for serving the president "admirably, loyally and faithfully."
"President Trump has treated her with the highest level and respect and kindness," Huckabee said, before reflecting on some of his daughter's experiences with the Trump administration.
"Just last week I was going through and getting some Chick-fil-A and she was dining with Queen Elizabeth and the next day having lunch with Prince Charles," he said, referencing the Trump administration's trip to the United Kingdom last week."
What a life she has been able to enjoy," he continued. "She loves this president and will always be grateful for the way that she treated him and for the extraordinary experience that she has been able to have."
The Western Journal also commented:
Huckabee, Sanders’ father, said that he was “profoundly grateful” that the president had been nothing but “kind, respectful” in the way that he had treated Sanders during her tenure.
“Just Dad talking,” Huckabee wrote, “I’m profoundly grateful to @realDonaldTrump for the kind, respectful way he treated @PressSec for over 3 yrs she worked for him.”
Huckabee proceeded to juxtapose the president’s willingness to defend Sanders with the media’s frequent attacks on her physical appearance and role in the administration.
Sanders was frequently harassed by various establishment media and Hollywood figures throughout her tenure, some of whom still refer to her as a “mouthpiece for fascism,” among other, even less friendly, things.
Huckabee said, however, that he was always comforted knowing that Trump would treat Sanders like a “lady.”
“Reason I hold most media in contempt is they don’t know or care about truth,” the former governor wrote. “Thanks, @POTUS for treating Sarah like the lady she is.”
