White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders shut down CNN host Chris Cuomo on his own show on Thursday when he tried to run his mouth at her.
The Daily Caller reported that Sanders boasted about the strong economy and President Donald Trump’s recent legislation benefiting veterans during an interview with Cuomo, who tried to challenge the president’s anti-CNN stance.
“Do you think that by saying, ‘We stink,’ that we don’t like veterans, that we are bad for America, the president says we are enemies of America, do you think that that works for you long-term?” Cuomo asked.
“What I think is important to remember is that you guys get to ask the questions, but you can’t always complain about the answers,” Sanders fired back. “You constantly ask the same question over and over and over again and expect different answers and then get mad when the answers don’t change.”
Sanders went on to slam CNN and claim that they have avoided reporting the news in order to constantly attack the president.
“Unfortunately, you guys quit reporting the news. When I can read a news story and I have no idea what side of the story the reporter is on, that’s a good news story,” she said. “You’ll be hard-pressed to find a lot of news that looks like that.”
Cuomo tried to say that he is not an opinion journalist and to argue that she doesn’t answer the public’s questions during White House press briefings, but Sanders wasn’t having any of it.
“I answer questions all day, every day,” Sanders retorted. “It’s what I spend every minute of the day doing. It’s why I’m sitting here at 9 o’clock at night answering questions to you.”
We’re glad to see that Sanders put Cuomo right in his place!
