Sarah Huckabee Sanders Defends Trump’s Weird Sexual Tweet, Fails Harder Than Ever (VIDEO) | THE POLITICUS

Sarah Huckabee Sanders Defends Trump’s Weird Sexual Tweet, Fails Harder Than Ever (VIDEO)

Earlier today, Donald Trump attacked Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) on Twitter after she called on him to resign over the massive allegations of sexual assault against him. Trump lashed back at the Democrat for criticizing him, and did so in possibly the most incriminating way possible – with a tweet was VERY sexually suggestive.

Trump hopped on Twitter this morning to trash Gillibrand, stating that she “would do anything” for campaign contributions. He said:

Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Chuck Schumer and someone who would come to my office “begging” for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump. Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!”

As expected, this was the topic of discussion during today’s White House press briefing, as Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was faced with the horrendous task of defending Trump – and let’s just say that it didn’t go well. ABC’s Cecilia Vega didn’t beat around the bush as she started the briefing by cornering Huckabee Sanders about the tweet. Vega asked:

Many, many people see this as a sexual innuendo. What is the president suggesting?”

Sanders tried to deny that Trump was making a sexual reference in that tweet, but she failed miserably. She said:

I think that the president is very obvious. This is the same sentiment that the president has expressed many times before — when he has exposed corruption of the entire political system. In fact, he’s used similar terminology many times when talking about politicians of both parties. Both men and women.”

This response was hardly satisfactory, and Vega pressed Huckabee Sanders further. She said:

What is he alleging would happen behind closed doors with her?”

Huckabee Sanders began to fall apart and she stumbled through her response:

He’s not alleging anything. He’s talking about the way that our system functions as it is. That politicians repeatedly beg for money, that’s not something new. And that comment, frankly, is not something new. If you look back at past comments this president has made, he’s used that same terminology many times in reference to men. There’s no way that this is sexist at all.”

Seriously, how dumb does the Trump administration think Americans are? It was clear that no one was buying it, and as Huckabee Sanders continued to be questioned further, she became combative. Later in the press briefing, CNN’s April Ryan asked Huckabee Sanders about Trump’s tweet again, and this time the press secretary snapped. Huckabee Sanders lashed out:

I think only if your mind was in the gutter would you have read it that way.”
