Sarah Huckabee Sanders has one of the toughest jobs in Washington, squaring off daily against the onslaught of reporters who are determined to bring down President Trump.
Thankfully for Sarah and the rest of America, she’s amazing at her job. No Press Secretary has turned a crowd around so effortlessly and defend herself all along the way with conviction and humor.
Here are a few of greatest moments.
1. Defending President Trump’s style of humor.
Trump was pretty candid about how little special treatment he thought MS-13 gang members should receive,
“When you see these towns and when you see these thugs being thrown into the paddy wagon, you just see them thrown in. Rough, I said. Please don’t be too nice,” Trump said. “Like when you guys put somebody in the car and you’re protecting their head, you know? The way you put their hand over. Like, don’t hit their head, and they’ve just killed somebody? Don’t hit their head? I said, ‘You can take the hand away, OK?’”
Sanders handles the press pool smoothly,
“You guys are jumping, and trying to make something out of nothing. He was simply making a comment, making a joke, and it was nothing more than that.”
2. On Trump’s ‘Phone calls’ to the President of Mexico and head of the Boy Scouts
President Trump had one on one conversations with the President of Mexico, but misspoke and said they were phone calls. To journalists looking for an easy ‘gotcha,’ this was explicit evidence that Trump had LIED!
“I wouldn’t say it was a lie. That’s a pretty bold accusation. The conversations took place. They just didn’t take place over a phone call.”
3. On the alleged ‘chaotic’ turnover at the White House
“I don’t perceive it as chaotic…You wanna see chaos, you should come to my house early in the morning when my three kids are running around, thats chaos.”
It takes a special person with some thick skin to daily stand up and represent an administration and take all the relentless attacks from the other party, and no one has ever done it as well as Sarah Sanders!
Here are some of Sarah’s best moments going head to head with reporters. They tried to take her down, but she out maneuvered them all!
