As Press Secretary for Donald Trump, Sarah Huckabee Sanders has faced her fair share of media hostility. Lately, however, she’s “never been attacked more.” So she’s striking back in a hilarious way.
“I’ve never been attacked more, questioned more,” Sanders said during a panel held by George Washington University. I was called a liar by a major network in an official statement, I’ve been called outrageous things on air, and it goes unquestioned, no pushback.”
“I do think that there is a greater sense of hostility that I’ve seen in this administration than in previous, and I think that you see that reflected in the numbers, in the coverage,” said Sanders. “If you compare that to the first nine months of the Obama administration, it was 40-60, so for people to pretend like there isn’t a greater sense of hostility toward this administration, I think, would be to ignore real facts.”
This tirade against the press forced the Washington Post to fact-check the statement. Their findings were probably hard to swallow for the liberal paper. “93 percent of the coverage [of Trump] was negative and 7 percent positive,” They conceded. “Indeed, studies have shown overwhelmingly negative coverage of Trump in the mainstream media.”
This is a MASTERCLASS in media trolling. The media have to report on Sanders, so she’s using them to wage war against themselves.
Sarah Sanders knows exactly what she’s doing — and she’s doing it REALLY well.
Comment “well played” and SHARE if you LOVE Sarah Sanders’ feistiness.
She learned from the best, and now she is the best defender of the president.
