You can count on one thing from Sarah Huckabee-Sanders, she doesn’t back down from anyone.
In this situation it was no different. During a recent White House press briefing, she gave her two cents and some change on exactly what she thinks of the Democrat in disguise, Jeff Flake.
When White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is asked about President Trump’s comment that not applauding for him at the State of the Union was treasonous. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) said that treason should not be used as a punchline for a joke. Sanders is asked to respond.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders didn’t hold back when asked to comment on Sen. Jeff Flake’s anti-Trump tirade on the Senate floor, telling reporters she simply “doesn’t care” what the outgoing GOP congressman has to say.
“Senator Flake said something on the Senate floor and I want to give you a chance to respond,” asked one reporter during the daily briefing. “He said, ‘Treason is not a punchline.’ Can you say for the sake of the future that you agree with Sen. Flake on that? That ‘treasonous’ is not a punchline?”
“Honestly, I’m not going to respond to Sen. Flake’s comments. I don’t really care what Sen. Flake has to say. I don’t think his constituents do either; his numbers are in the tank. The President was clearly joking with his comments,” fired back Sanders.
“What isn’t a joke is that the Democrats refuse to celebrate the accomplishments of last year that has helped all Americans. What this country doesn’t understand is why Democrats are so upset about lower taxes and higher wages,” she added.
