WH Aides Throw Sarah Sanders Under The Bus After Mueller Report Exposes Her Lies
White House aides are now worried that the credibility of the White House along with its reputation will sink now that the Mueller report that press secretary Sarah Sanders admitted under oath to lying at the podium on behalf of Donald Trump as part of the cover-up over the firing of FBI Director James Comey.
“Some of Mr. Trump’s aides and allies acknowledged on Friday that it was problematic for the president’s chief spokeswoman to spend airtime defending her own credibility,” The New York Times reported Friday.
“But White House officials — some of whom think Ms. Sanders is taking an unfair beating in the press — do not expect Mr. Trump to be fazed by the controversy. Unlike previous administrations, in which officials feared blows to their credibility in public, Mr. Trump’s press aides are generally performing for an audience of one — the president,” The Times explained.
“In previous administrations, when it was revealed that press secretaries had delivered false statements from the White House podium, there was more of a reaction and often some soul-searching,” The Times added.
The White House defiantly attacked The Times for reporting on Sanders’ credibility.
“The White House staff will never be lectured on truth-telling from the media that pushed a flat-out lie about Donald Trump for two years,” principal deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley told The Times.
