White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders lost her cool on Tuesday when reporters confronted her about President Donald Trump’s role in covering up his son’s meeting with Russians.
At Tuesday’s briefing, Sanders was asked about allegations that Trump tried to change the narrative of the Russia scandal by dictating a statement for Donald Trump Jr., who had been caught taking a meeting with Russians during the 2016 election.
Sanders insisted that the statement allegedly dictated by Trump is “true” and that the president had been acting as a father.
“The president weighed in as any father would based on the information he had,” she explained.
As the questions kept coming, Sanders appeared to become irritated.
“I think what the bigger question is, everybody wants to try to make this some story about misleading,” she said. “The only thing I’ve seen misleading is a year’s worth of stories that have been fueling a false narrative about this Russia collusion based on a phony scandal based on anonymous sources.”
“You guys are focused on a meeting that Don Jr. had of no consequence when the Democrats actually colluded with a foreign government,” Sanders declared. “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.”
