If I were the media at these White House press conferences after a day like today, I’d go home, look myself in the mirror and ask, “Am I just a hack for the Democrat Party?”
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday swatted away the latest anonymously resourced story by the leftist Washington Post meant to harm the Trump presidency, a story claiming that President Trump “dictated” Donald Trump, Jr.’s statement regarding a meeting he had last year with a Russian attorney.
Responding to a reporter today, Huckabee Sanders said that the President did not dictate the statement but simply “weighed-in” on it as any father would and that Democrats are using the story as another “PR stunt” to “create a narrative that doesn’t exist.”
Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who replaced the recently departed Sean Spicer as press secretary, then showed the media what real collusion with the Russians looks like:
“The statement that was issued [by Don Jr.] was true and there were no inaccuracies in the statement. I think what the bigger question is, everybody wants to try to make this some story about misleading, the thing I see misleading is a year’s worth of stories that have been fueling a false narrative about this Russia collusion and based on a phony scandal based on anonymous sources. And I think that if we’re gonna talk about misleading, that’s the only thing I see misleading in this entire process.
You guys are focused on a meeting that Don Jr. had no consequence, when the Democrats actually colluded with a foreign government like Ukraine, the Democrat-linked firm Fusion GPS actually took money from the Russian government while it created the phony dossier that’s been the basis for all of the Russia scandal.
And If you want to talk further about a relationship with Russia, look no further than the Clintons, as we’ve said time and time again, Bill was paid half-a-million dollars to give a speech to a Russian bank and was personally thanked by Putin for it.
Hillary Clinton allowed one-fifth of America’s uranium to reserve to be sold to a Russian firm whose investors were the Clinton Foundation donors. And the Clinton campaign chairman’s [John Podesta’s] brother lobbied against sanctions on Russia’s largest bank and failed to report it.
If you guys want to talk about having relations which you seem obsessed with doing, look no further than there.”
Sarah Huckabee Sanders then made the case that Trump administration policies, like a stronger U.S. Military and releasing the Obama restrictions of producing more American energy, like coal and fracking, “aren’t good for Russia.”
“I think the distinctions are very clear and you guys want to create a narrative that just doesn’t exist,” she proclaimed.
