Sarah Sanders’ Office Just Praised The Washington Post After Trump Ranted About The Paper Being ‘Fake News’
On Tuesday, the White House Office of the Press Secretary showed their appreciation for Washington Post fact-checkers despite Donald Trump’s constant attack against the newspaper.
Dave Levinthal, a senior reporter with the Center for Public Integrity, pointed out the irony in a Twitter post on Tuesday. He shared multiple screenshots of Trump’s attack on the newspaper.
He tweeted saying:
“The [White House] Office of the Press Secretary sends out an official statement touting the ace fact-checking efforts of the [Washington Post], which [Trump] routinely calls “FAKE NEWS” and accuses of fabrications.”
“Because, of course,” he added.
