Sarah Sanders helps the NBC propagandist look like an idiot. As she tries to trap Sanders into saying something she shouldn’t or didn’t mean, the new standard in “journalism,”
In their quest to “nail President Trump” or his administration on any gotcha that they can contort, any slip-up they can cause, Sarah Sanders is daily target. In this instance the enemy attacking is Fake News NBC’s Hallie Jackson.
Her first question is, “When did the President know that Mike Flynn lied to the FBI?” Sanders politely tells the fisherwoman, “As I said before, I’ll refer you back to John Dowd’s clarification.” Jackson tries to fast talk Sanders into a response, saying, “I’m not asking for a date, when did he find out? Was it when the announcement was made Friday, was it prior to that?”
Sanders reiterates, again, “I’m not aware of those specifics” and refers her to Dowd twice again. Failing in that effort, Jackson approaches the same issue from a slightly different angle, telling her that she has weighed in on other special counsel matters, calling it “just a statement of fact” as to what day President Trump learned the information.
Sanders deftly throws her words back in Jackson’s face, saying, “And I’m telling you as a statement of fact that you should contact John Dowd, doesn’t seem that hard.” Sanders calls on another reporter as Jackson hurriedly asks another question and is able to get a response to a question about Judge Roy Moore.
She asks, “You said the President wants somebody in the Senate who supports his agenda versus one who does not.” She asks if the White House position is that it’s worse to have a Democrat in that Senate seat than somebody who is accused of sexually abusing a teen girl.
Sanders repeats that the White House finds the allegations to be troubling as Jackson inserts, “The why did the President endorse?” Sanders could have pointed out that the Democrat wants grown men with mental problems to take showers with little girls and other men’s wives and girlfriends, something many normal people find quite troubling. But she doesn’t go down that road.
Sanders says, “Look, I think that those are different things in terms of we aren’t going to be the ones to determine that process, that’s for the people of Alabama to determine what those things come down on. He does want people that support his agenda. He’s not going to, obviously, support a Democrat.”
She adds, “And I think if that’s our standard then we need to look at a number of members of Congress that have had allegations brought against them that are still in office.”
Too bad for Jackson the only sound bite she produced was Sarah Sanders helping her make a fool of herself.
