Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders held a briefing Tuesday, where she dismantled the press one by one.
Surrounding former Trump National Security Advisor Mike Flynn’s court hearing, reporters were waiting in their seats after Judge Sullivan delayed Flynn’s sentencing. (Video Below)
During Tuesday’s briefing, Josh Dawsey, reporter for The Washington Post, asked the Press Secretary if Michael Flynn and Cohen lying to the FBI concerns President Trump.
“Is he concerned that one of his top aides lied to the FBI and was working for a foreign government?” Dawsey asked.
Sanders replied, “Not when it comes to things having to do with the President. The activities [Flynn] is said to have engaged in don’t have anything to do with the president.”
She continued, “Let’s remember what this is supposed to be about: whether or not Russia influenced the election and whether or not the president had anything to do with it. We know Russia tried to create chaos within the election but not because they actually impacted it.” (Video Below)
The Press Secretary doubled down and mopped up the floor with the reporters tears next.
Sanders declared, “The only reason that the President is the President is [because] he was a better candidate and beat Hillary Clinton! We also know the president never colluded with Russia.”
However, she pointed out there’s certainly concern about Flynn’s behavior. (Video Below)
Dawsey also asked why President Trump would make positive comments about Michael Flynn and Sanders responded, “It’s perfectly acceptable for the president to make a positive comment about somebody while we wait to see what the court’s determination is.”
