Sarah Huckabee Sanders is an expert at holding her own ground and calling anything out as she sees it. She’s in the Lion’s Den with liberal reporters weekly and handles constant attacks with grace under fire. She knows what she’s doing and up against, yet the left can’t help themselves in continuing to try and set her up.
By now, reporters should know that their usual tactics aren’t going to work with her. However, that wasn’t the case when the fearless White House Press Secretary appeared Tuesday morning on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Instead of setting Sarah up, they hosts actually set themselves up. Her response to their “trick” question about Kavanaugh backfired on them spectacularly.
The Daily Caller has the details:
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders pointed to hypocrisy in the Democratic Party’s concern over alleged sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, in a Tuesday morning interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
Sanders was pressed on whether President Donald Trump had already made up his mind on whether Kavanaugh’s accusers were lying and whether it demonstrates a pattern in his behavior.
“When Roy Moore is accused, when Bill O’Reilly is accused, when Roger Ailes is accused, when Rob Porter is accused, and now when Brett Kavanaugh is accused, the president consistently every single time takes the side of the man,” “GMA” host George Stephanopoulos told Sanders.
“You know, it’s interesting that you say that,” she replied. “It’s a lot of Democrats that like to ignore Keith Ellison and Cory Booker. They love to fight and champion women until they disagree with them.”
Sanders referenced current misconduct allegations against Keith Ellison by his former girlfriend Karen Monahan. She also pointed to Sen. Cory Booker’s past admission that he groped a girl while he was a young teenager.
Stephanopoulos pointed out that former Sen. Al Franken was hounded from office by his party, but Sanders rebutted “and a number of other Democrats should have the same type of scrutiny.”
Trump has indicated he believes decades old sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh are a smear campaign aired by the Democratic Party to derail his nomination.
“The Democrats are working hard to destroy a wonderful man, and a man who has the potential to be one of our greatest Supreme Court Justices ever, with an array of False Accusations the likes of which have never been seen before!” Trump tweeted late Monday.

Media bias has gotten so bad because it constantly goes unchecked – that kind of scrutiny only applies to conservatives who are constantly silence. Left-leaning reporters and networks don’t even try to hide their negative opinions about our administration, in fact, they put it on full display and are supported for it.
However, you can’t silence Sanders and perfectly called the facts out and did it with a smile. For someone as hateful toward President Trump as George Stephanopoulos is, it had to really burn him up inside to get schooled on his own show. It seems obvious that was the case when he was actually caught off guard by Sarah’s response while trying to catch her off guard by putting her on the spot.
There’s no better retort than Sarah’s to a question like the one Stephanopoulos threw at her. He can’t possibly bring up the accusations against Republicans, as if it’s a constant problem within the party, without addressing the difference in the reaction and recourse and the many leftists accused of the same, or worse.
