Press Secretary Sarah Sanders took on a number of questions from the White House press corps Tuesday afternoon about her credibility. Specifically, she was asked about a discrepancy surrounding a 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower.
Last August, Sanders said on the record the President did not dictate a response to revelations about the meeting. However, a letter written by President Trump's legal team states he did in fact dictate the response onboard Air Force One last year, which was then given to the press.
"Why should we be able to trust the information we are getting from this administration is accurate? And more importantly, why should Americans be able to trust that what they hear from this White House is always the truth?" a reporter asked.
"I work every single day to give you accurate and up to date information and I'm going to continue to do that. Frankly, I think my credibility is higher than the media’s. I think in large part that’s because you guys spend most of your time focused on attacking the president instead of reporting the news. I think if you spent a little bit more time reporting the news instead of tearing me down, you might actually see we're working hard to provide you with good information and to provide that good information to the American people.”
Sanders also got into a heated back and forth with reporter April Ryan, who shouted a question out of turn and demanded to know if President Trump is aware NFL National Anthem protests are also about police brutality.
"I let you rudely interrupt me and your colleague, I would be happy to answer if you would stop talking long enough to let me do that," Sanders said.
Must watch this exchange between @AprilDRyan & @PressSec

She has one tough job! Go Sarah!
The best Press Secretary Trump could possible have.
I love watching a good press Huckabeating.
Easy bar to cowards though.
April Ryan and Acosta should be out in a soundproof room where Sarah can answer their questions (or not) as she pleases. Or just show these assclowns the door.
At one time I wanted Mark Levin to be press secretary. He would have taken them to a wood shed six different ways.
Then he lost his sanity
Casey Anthony and OJ Simpson combined have more credibility than the Commie press
Please explain ? TIA
She is correct.
April Ryan needs a time out of about 20 years duration & total banishment from any press conferences-—anywhere.
Sarah Sanders 2024!
Acosta, and Ryan should have their passes pulled with no negotiations. They are disrupters, and the rest of them would take note.
This is good practice for dealing with her children.
Mock them. Mock them mercilessly.
If he didnt like the question, he would just say,”Shut up, you dope”.
Would have been fun to watch but more harm than good.
I don’t understand how she can be so polite.
Sarah sounds like teacher trained in behavior management. Hehe.
Is there a way I can send a dozen roses to Sarah Huckabee Sanders?
