If you’re picking role models for 2018, look no further. Here’s the one to emulate and social media stalk in your spare time — just not in a creepy way, lest you want to be taken to court. Or possibly have your ass handed to you during a press conference. Sarah Huckabee Sanders is hounded by the press over some non-issue every week, and every week she kills the issue and throws its body in the dumpster behind the White House. #Goals
The latest “controversy” is over Trump calling a New York Senator meanie names. Here’s the setup.
The controversy of the day involves Trump tweeting an attack on New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. Trump attacked the senator after she said he should resign over sexual harassment allegations. Trump attacked her as a “lightweight,” a “flunky” and said she was “begging” him for campaign contributions.
Even though Trump has often used these terms to describe men, the comments have been called sexist.
Of course the cries of sexism were lobbed faster than you can say “Where’s my p*ssy hat?” But the press didn’t stop there. They started bringing up accusations of corruption aimed not towards Gillibrand for her special interests, but at Trump himself. Sarah Sanders had little patience for such tomfoolery.
Here’s the slaughter.
In case the steamrolling went too fast for you, here’s the highlights:
QUESTION: Is he admitting that he bought access in a corrupt way?
Look, I think he’s admitting that he’s participating in a rigged system. He said that on the campaign trail. He knows how the system works. I think it would be disingenuous for anybody not to understand that. But at least this President is being honest about the process and his willingness to actually fix it and drain the swamp.
The issue here isn’t that the Trump family gave Senator Gillard-brain some monies. The issue is that they COULD even give the harpy money in the first place. As Sarah explains.
That’s the reason we have a broken system. That’s the reason that, often, special interests control our government more than the people do. That’s one of the reasons this President ran to be President. It’s one of the top reasons, I think, that he won and that he’s sitting in the Oval Office today and Hillary Clinton’s not.
She even drizzled a little Hillary in there for good measure. Biggity boom.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders, ladies and gents. She gets it.
