Stephanie Cutter defended Jen O’Malley-Dillon’s remark calling congressional Republicans “fuckers” by asking if anyone disagrees with the substance of her remarks, and asserting that “Jen just had the guts to say it.”

Cutter, an official with President-elect Joe Biden’s Presidential Inaugural Committee and a longtime senior adviser to former President Barack Obama, took issue with an Axios report that suggested members of Biden’s inner circle are upset about O’Malley-Dillon’s comment, and may even want her to apologize.

“This story is based on one anonymous donor. Really?” Cutter wrote, and added “And does anyone really disagree with the sentiment? Jen just had the guts to say it. Will Republicans prove her wrong? Doubt it.”
