During a recent press conference, a reporter asked Sarah Sanders to respond to recent comments Sen. Jeff Flake made insulting President Trump. Sanders response was absolutely perfect.
“Senator Flake said something on the Senate floor and I want to give a chance to respond. He said, and I quote, ‘I have seen the president’s most ardent defenders used the argument that the president’s [treason] comments were meant as a joke. Just sarcasm, only tongue-in-cheek. But treason is not a punch line. Can you say for the sake of the future that you agree with Senator Flake on that, that treason or treasonous is a punch line, is not a joking matter?” asked the reporter.
“Look, honestly, I’m not going to respond directly to Senator Flake’s comments. I don’t really care what Senator Flake has to say. I don’t think his constituents do either and that’s why his numbers are on the take. The president was clearly joking with his comments,” said Sanders. Wow!
“But what isn’t a joke is that Democrats refuse to celebrate the accomplishments of last year that has helped all Americans. What I don’t understand, what I don’t think the country understands is why Democrats are so upset about lower taxes and higher wages,” she said.
“That’s something that every American should be celebrating, not crying about, not sitting on their hands for. Democrats are going to have to make a decision at some point really soon, do they hate this president more than they love this country. And I hope the answer to that is no,” said Sanders. Do you think she’s right?
