Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee and White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, his daughter, appeared Wednesday on ABC’s The View to defend President Donald Trump.
During the discussion, View co-host Sara Haines implored Sanders not to label all of the media “fake news.” But Sanders insisted the Trump administration had the right to call out media outlets that published false information.
“Is the media not supposed to report on the fact that 95 percent of what [Trump] says is a lie?” co-host Joy Behar interjected.
“The problem with that, Joy, that is — you are doing exactly what you’re talking about and pushing a false narrative,” Sanders shot back.
“No it’s not,” Behar said. “It’s from PolitiFact. It’s not just the dreaded New York Times, it is other outlets that say it.”
But Sanders insisted that more than 5 percent of what the president said was true.
