White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders held a press briefing today in which she was forced to rehash something that she has already fully discussed with the press for the past week.
Reporters were briefed last week on President Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, however, they refused to move on to more current events despite Sarah’s insistence.
First, NBC’s Hallie Jackson would not stop interrupting Sarah with questions about the meeting, but thankfully, Sarah was able to shut her down in the interest of giving her colleagues a chance to ask questions.
The next reporter, Kaitlan Collins for CNN picked right up where Jackson left off.
“Has the president done an interview brief? They haven’t briefed reporters on what went down during the two-hour meeting –“
Sarah interrupts her right her in brilliant fashion to correct her.
“He actually had a press conference. The president has done a number of interviews. We’ve actually put out quite a bit of information following that meeting, so…”
Collins, not to be deterred, then pivoted to whether President Trump has briefed his national security advisors on what was said during the meeting. Sarah cannot believe how silly these questions are getting.
“The president has met and spoken with all of those individuals since that meeting. “
This reporter will not give up and this is where Sarah has to shut her down
“Kaitlan, I’m not going to go into the specific details on how the president interacts every single time with his national security team. But it’s actually not a rarity but a normal occurrence for two world leaders to have a conversation with one another.”
Sarah then signals to Kaitlan that this discussion is over by calling on the next reporter for a question.
SHARE if you think Sarah has the patience of a saint with these disrespectful reporters!
