The new White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders reacted quit angrily after being confronted by reporters about Donald Trump’s role in covering up his eldest son’s meeting with a Russian government lawyer.
Sander lost her on cool on Tuesday’s briefing. She was asked about allegations that Trump tried to change the narrative of the Russia scandal by dictating a statement for Donald Trump Jr.
In response, Sanders pushed the narrative that Trump was acting as a father and did what any father would have done.
“The president weighed in as any father would based on the information he had,” she explained.
Sanders began to lose her cool as the questions kept coming.
“I think what the bigger question is, everybody wants to try to make this some story about misleading,” she said. “The only thing I’ve seen misleading is a year’s worth of stories that have been fueling a false narrative about this Russia collusion based on a phony scandal based on anonymous sources.”
“You guys are focused on a meeting that Don Jr. had of no consequence when the Democrats actually colluded with a foreign government,” Sanders declared. “And if you want to talk further about a relationship with Russia, look no further than the Clintons as we’ve said time and time again.”
