I don’t think I could love Sarah Huckabee Sanders any more than I do. She is the absolute best White House Press Secretary ever! I find myself cheering for her when I watch her handle with ease a deceitful, scandal-hungry, rude bunch of reporters.
Monday, she did it again. She absolutely OWNED Jim Acosta, CNN reporter. Watch and be amazed. This woman is just the best. Seriously, it’s getting to the point I’d rather watch Sarah than “This is Us.” She’s that good.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders has been the White House Press Secretary since May, and at a mere 35 years old, she has done a spectacular job. She gets asked the most insulting and ridiculous questions day in and day out and somehow manages to make it all look easy. Sanders has attributed her ability to handle the press to being a parent to young, demanding kids. Makes sense to me.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders shut down CNN’s Senior White House Correspondent Jim Acosta on Monday when the liberal reporter tried to hijack a press briefing during a conversation about fake news.
Acosta told Sanders that journalists make “honest mistakes” but that doesn’t make them “fake news” before attempting a question. Sanders quickly cut him off.
“When journalists make honest mistakes, they should own up to them. Sometimes, and a lot of times, you don’t,” Sanders said as Acosta tried to interrupt.
“I’m sorry, I’m not finished,” she said. “There is a very big difference between making honest mistakes and purposefully misleading the American people… you cannot say it’s an honest mistake when you’re purposely putting out information you know is false.”
Acosta then asked Sanders to cite a specific story that was intentionally false.
“Sure. The ABC report by Brian Ross,” Sanders said, referring to a recent embarrassing correction ABC News issued after Ross botched a bombshell “exclusive” about retired general Michael Flynn that resulted in the reporter being suspended.
CNN’s Acosta should have stopped when he had the chance, as Sanders didn’t pick one of his network’s recent blunders to use as her example. However, Acosta tried to continue the conversation with repeated attempts to interrupt the press conference.
“Jim, I’m gonna say once and for all that I’m moving on,” Sanders said. “I’m not taking another question from you.”
CNN had to issue its own correction on Friday after The Washington Post debunked the network’s report claiming the Trump campaign had early, secret access to hacked DNC emails from WikiLeaks. The network on Friday inaccurately trumpeted that Congressional investigators obtained a mysterious 2016 email that was sent to Trump and other top aides, including Donald Trump Jr., which contained information on how to get a sneak peek at hacked information that WikiLeaks had acquired. The email, as CNN reported, offered a “decryption key” to access the files – but the network botched the date on the email, rendering the entire report irrelevant.
On Monday, CNN backtracked a report from earlier this year that faulted Attorney General Jeff Sessions for failing to reveal meetings he had with Russian officials when he applied for his security clearance – a disclosure he wasn’t required to make. CNN also was widely mocked on Monday morning for a segment on Trump’s soda intake amid unfolding breaking news related to the terror attack in New York City.
President Trump has pointed directly at Acosta and said, “You’re fake news,” at past news conferences.
Of course, the MSM is going nuts after the briefing. A CNN headline reads “Sarah Sanders just made a hugely offensive allegation against the media.”
Oh, boo hoo! Sanders is simply fed up with having to fight the fake news that CNN and the rest of the MSM keeps churning out. It’s one thing to have to stand up there day after day and do her job. It it sure is complicated when she has to add fact checking their stories.
Watching Sarah Sanders do the hardest job in Washington is really inspiring. She puts up with so much crap, and not just from those reporters. Recently, Chelsea Handler has set her sights on destroying Sanders. Handler called Sanders “pure evil” and mocked her in brutal fashion. Handler, the so-called feminist. So much for standing up for women. Handler is a bully, plain and simple.
But Sarah just keeps chugging along. Haters can hate all they want. She is just going to stay focused and do her job.
