Sarah Huckabee Sanders
Wednesday on The View, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her father, former Governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee, spent the entire last half of the show fielding questions about Trump from the liberal hosts. But The View hosts never got their “gotcha” moment, as the pair always had a rebuttal for the panel’s heavily loaded questions. The White House Press Secretary even called out the media for using reports to “editorialize” rather than give the American people“facts,” and mocked the media’s persistence at harping on certain issues.
For Friday’s White House press briefing, reporters decided to play the role of lobbyists standing up for illegal immigrants known as DREAMers ahead of President Trump’s decision about whether to end the program. Reporters from a variety of outlets took it upon themselves to inquire about whether DREAMers are real Americans and question the President’s compassion for others seeing as how, if he decided to end it, droves of people could be “sen[t]...out of the country.”
MSNBC’s Chuck Todd spent the first 20 minutes on Wednesday’s MTP Daily complaining about the White House and its “credibility crisis.” “If it's Wednesday, we've come a long way from George Washington and that cherry tree. Tonight, the White House credibility crisis deepens,” he mocked, as he started his show after the administration was found to have misled on several occasions. “I would be fired for lying,” he lamented, noting how people are skeptical of the press.
On Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders read a letter from a Stockton, California boy named Dylan Harbin, whose nickname is "Pickle." Almost immediately, "Pickle Truthers" in the Trump-deranged media who couldn't imagine that a 9 year-old could really have written such a letter embarked on an exhaustive boyhunt to verify Pickle's existence.
On Saturday's AM Joy show on MSNBC, during a discussion of the current feud between President Donald Trump and MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, Democratic guest and equal rights attorney Tamara Holder degraded women in the White House as being "very, very weak-minded" and as having "smaller minds than his small hands."
At Thursday’s combative White House press briefing, deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders cited the latest blockbuster study by the Media Research Center’s Rich Noyes, which found that the evening newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC spent May and June obsessing over possible Trump-Russia collusion to the detriment of actual policy topics.
As only he could, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh spend large swaths of Wednesday’s program trashing the liberal media and particularly CNN, referring to them as “fools” with “little Jim Acosta” behaving like a cat “chasing the red laser pointer around and bumping into walls and sofa.”
Late last week, CNN was forced to remove a story that falsely claimed former Trump aide Anthony Scaramucci was being investigated by Congress for alleged ties to a Russian bank. And on Tuesday, President Trump took to Twitter to rub the fake news in CNN’s face after three people involved with the story resigned. CBS took exception with Trump’s gloating and whined about it during CBS Evening News, later that day. “And now to the White House where tensions between the administration and the news media are growing,” announced Anchor Anthony Mason at the start of the segment.
Fresh off his newfound stardom after arguing with White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday afternoon, The Sentinel and Playboy writer Brian Karem told MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews that he (and the press corps) are “tired of being paddled” as liberal pushers of fake news.
CNN received their wish on Tuesday that the White House press briefing would allow cameras, but it wasn’t enough as senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta and media reporter Dylan Byers melted like liberal snowflakes over Breitbart receiving a question and deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders slamming the media’s thrist for destroying President Trump.
An anti-Trump journalist on Tuesday suffered a total meltdown, screaming at Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Brian J. Karem, a reporter for a local Maryland paper The Sentinel, lost it after Sanders fought back against a “barrage of fake news.” Sanders lectured the assembled journalists: “If we make the slightest mistake, the slightest word is off, it is just an absolute tirade from a lot of people in this room. But news outlets get to go on, day after day, and cite unnamed sources.”
During Thursdays audio-only White House daily briefing, deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders received a question from CBS Radio News that touted far-left Senate protesters that have claimed that the proposed Senate Republican health care bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare would cause people to die.
