Sarah Huckabee Sanders puts this reporter in his place when he tries stating that Trump was not being honest about Firing Comey, the timing. He implied she was a liar and interrupted her while she defended herself.
“HOLD ON JONATHAN, I LET YOU FINISH AND READ OFF EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THOSE STATEMENTS. SO, UNLESS YOU WANT TO TRADE PLACES I THINK IT’S MY TURN NOW. “
Then, Huckabee-Sanders called out the hypocrisy of liberals criticizing Trump’s firing of James Comey. She said:
“THE PRESIDENT IS THE ONLY PERSON THAT CAN FIRE THE DIRECTOR OF THE FBI. HE SERVES AT THE PLEASURE OF THE PRESIDENT, THE PRESIDENT MADE THE DECISION, IT WAS THE RIGHT DECISION. “
“THE PEOPLE THAT ARE IN THE DARK TODAY ARE THE DEMOCRATS. THEY WANT TO COME OUT AND TALK ABOUT HOW THEY LOVE COMEY AND HOW GREAT HE WAS, LOOK AT THE FACTS… IN WASHINGTON WE FINALLY HAD SOMETHING THAT I THINK WE SHOULD HAVE ALL BEEN ABLE TO AGREE ON, AND THAT WAS THAT DIRECTOR COMEY SHOULDN’T HAVE BEEN AT THE FBI, BUT THE DEMOCRATS WANT TO PLAY PARTISAN GAMES”
