White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was confronted by reporters after Trump’s “sh*thole” controversy hit the fan and she had three blunt questions for the press seeking feedback on “racism” accusations.
Sanders responded to a question on Trump being a “racist”:
“Look, I think that it is an outrageous claim, and frankly, I think if the critics of the president were who he said he was, why did NBC give him a show for a decade on TV? Why did Chuck Schumer and all of his colleagues come and beg Donald Trump for money?
If they are who they want to try to portray him as, why did they want to be with him for years and years in various activities, whether it was events and fundraisers and other things? I think it’s just an outrageous and ludicrous excuse, and they need to get on board and start actually doing what they were elected to do.”
The White House Press Secretary raises a good point: Why is it only after Donald Trump becomes an opponent of Democrat policies that he’s suddenly a “racist”? All the years at NBC, all the times he was asked by Democrats for campaign funds, all the media events such as the Miss Universe pageant and not a peep about his alleged “racism.”
In politics, timing is everything. And curiously, it appears that anytime a politician opposes the Democratic agenda, he or she is automatically a racist. Perhaps the media echoing the same old tired Democratic script is one reason the American people have been tuning it out.
