Media Asks If Trump Is ‘Corrupt.’ Sanders Gives Them Two Words… Hillary Clinton



White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders had her hands full at the press briefing yesterday. The media was frenzied over President Trump’s Gillibrand tweet. “Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Chuck Schumer and someone who would come to my office “begging” for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump. Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!” He smacked Gillibrand after she demanded he resign over sexual harassment allegations just as Sen. Al Franken did (or eventually will… we think). At issue here is the media going to the gutter over Trump’s statement that Gillibrand would do literally anything for campaign contributions.

President Trump has used the very same terms to describe politicians on both sides of the political divide… men and women. But the left and especially the media, decided to interpret this as sexist. President Trump has donated to Sen. Gillibran’s campaigns. These hacks had the gall to ask Sanders what Trump got in return. That’s when she incinerated them and brought a deathly quiet to the room with just two words… Hillary Clinton.

Sanders retorted: “That’s the reason that we have a broken system. That’s the reason that often special interests control our government more than the people do. That’s one of the reasons that this President ran to be President. It’s one of the top reasons that he won and that he’s sitting in the Oval Office today and Hillary Clinton is not because he couldn’t be bought and everybody knew that she could because they have seen it time and time again.” Now that is a killer answer.

But Sarah wasn’t done… not yet. She was then asked a follow-up question, they asked if Trump “bought access in a corrupt way?” That’s just offensive and they know it. Sanders gave as good as she got and hit them with one of Trump’s most famous campaign terms: “He says he knows how the system works. I think it would be disingenuous for anybody not to understand that. But at least this President is being honest about the process and his willingness to actually fix it and drain the swamp.”

The media was on a roll in that briefing. I’m sure you will be shocked that CNN weighed in to stir things up. They just love doing that. April Ryan asked: “Is Gillibrand owed an apology for the misunderstanding of the President’s tweet this morning? Because many, including the senator, think that it’s about sexual innuendos.” Sarah raked her over the coals for it: “I think only if you’re mind is in the gutter would you have read it that way. … So no.” That left a mark.

Ryan wasn’t finished: “No, it’s not. … What he said was open. And it was not mind in the gutter.” Sanders then slapped the media hack again: “He’s obviously talking about political partisan games that people often play and the broken system that he’s talked about repeatedly. This isn’t new. This isn’t a new sentiment. This isn’t new terminology. He’s used it several times before. As I said a few minutes ago, he’s used it several times before referencing men of both parties, in fact. And so I think that there — if you look back at the past comments he’s made, it was very clear what his reference was.”

All of this dithering was over one tweet from the President. He certainly lives rent-free in all of these people’s heads. What that was yesterday was opportunistic. Gillibrand is planning on running for the presidency in 2020, so she’s going to be very vocal in calling Trump to step aside. Elizabeth Warren accused Trump of slut-shaming Gillibrand with his comment. I laughed about that for a long time yesterday… she basically called Gillibrand a slut. Warren is also planning on running for the presidency. Then Mika had a monumental meltdown on Morning Joe over all this.

The whole day was filled with whining, hand wringing, faux offense and ginned up hysteria over one teeny weeny tweet. In a way, it was something to behold. I imagine Trump found it very humorous. There’s nothing better than seeing leftists and the media making abject fools of themselves and and at the same time, be totally lacking in self-awareness.
