As Press Secretary for Donald Trump, Sarah Sanders Huckabee has faced her fair share of media hostility. Lately, however, she’s “never been attacked more.” So she’s striking back in a hilarious way.
“I’ve never been attacked more, questioned more,” Sanders said during a panel held by George Washington University.
I was called a liar by a major network in an official statement, I’ve been called outrageous things on air, and it goes unquestioned, no pushback.”
“I do think that there is a greater sense of hostility that I’ve seen in this administration than in previous, and I think that you see that reflected in the numbers, in the coverage,” said Sanders. “If you compare that to the first nine months of the Obama administration, it was 40-60, so for people to pretend like there isn’t a greater sense of hostility toward this administration, I think, would be to ignore real facts.”
This tirade against the press forced the Washington Post to fact-check the statement. Their findings were probably hard to swallow for the liberal paper. “93 percent of the coverage [of Trump] was negative and 7 percent positive,” They conceded. “Indeed, studies have shown overwhelmingly negative coverage of Trump in the mainstream media.”
This is a MASTERCLASS in media trolling. The media have to report on Sanders, so she’s using them to wage war against themselves.
Sarah Sanders knows exactly what she’s doing — and she’s doing it REALLY well.
