Now that Congress is back in session, we can expect to hear more stories about the Russian investigations despite a continued lack of evidence of any wrongdoing, and a narrative that continues to fall apart.
During a routine news briefing on Aug. 1, a reporter in the White House press room tried to ambush White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders with a question about Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with Russians during the election campaign. Huckabee Sanders shut the question down — and the reporter along with it.
“The only thing I see misleading is a year’s worth of stories that have been fueling a false narrative about this Russia collusion and a phony scandal based on anonymous sources,” she said after being asked if Trump Jr. had been misleading the public.
Instead of just leaving it there and moving on to another question, Huckabee Sanders took the opportunity to remind everyone of how the Democrats have some serious ties to Russia that almost no one is talking about.
“The Democrats actually colluded with a foreign government like Ukraine,” Sanders said, “If you want to talk further about a relationship with Russia, look no further than the Clintons.”
At that moment, the reporter who had asked the question tried to interrupt, perhaps upset that his line of questioning had once again revealed just how inept the media has been at doing their job to hold all politicians accountable.
That’s the Washington media — they want to ask questions that embarrass the administration but can’t stand to hear questions that point out their own flaws and failures.
Huckabee Sanders then proceeded to hit all the familiar talking points, talking about Clinton’s paid speeches to Russia, the infamous uranium deal and other shady dealings that were exposed during the 2016 election.
“If you want to talk about somebody who’s actually been tough on Russia, look at President Trump,” she added.
The uproar from the press corps that came at the end of Huckabee Sanders’ comments shows just how much the media establishment hates it when the administration hits back.
Indeed, Trump has a track record of actually being very tough on Russia — tougher than Obama was. Trump has shown that he isn’t going to simply back down to Russia President Vladimir Putin — he will fight for America’s interests.
We can undoubtedly expect more exchanges like this in the coming days as the Russia investigations restart, but we’re confident that Huckabee Sanders can hold her own against the media, while at the same time serving them an extra helping of humble pie.
