Watch: Sarah Sanders Gets Defensive As CNN Reporter Torches Her Over Cohen’s Confession
On Wednesday, White House press secretary got defensive towards reporters as they bombarded her with questions regarding Donald Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen’s admission of guilt in the Stormy Daniels/Karen McDougal hush-money investigation.
“In his interview today, the president said he found out about payments Michael Cohen made later on. But he is on tape discussing how to make one of the payments with Michael Cohen. So before the payment was made. How do you explain that?” asked CNN’s Kaitlan Collins.
Sanders fired back by claiming that “the president did nothing wrong” before telling Collins to refer to Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani about the issue.
But Collins wasn’t having it. She fired back by saying:
“Rudy Giuliani is not a taxpayer-funded spokesperson for the president. You are. So how can you not explain something the president said today on the grounds of the White House that seems to contradict audio that is the president saying that.”
Sanders became uneasy and insulted Collins for “asking the same questions over and over” despite her refusing to answer.
Collins persisted, asking “does the White House maintain that the president did not have affairs with Karen McDougal or Stephanie Clifford?”
But Sanders does what she always does and ignored the question while turning her head to another reporter.
