Appearing on NBC’s Today show Monday morning to discuss Special Counsel Robert Mueller clearing President Trump of collusion with Russia, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders eviscerated irresponsible liberal media coverage of the investigation and demanded that the press apologize to the President and the American people.
During the contentious exchange, co-host Savannah Guthrie fretted: “…for the last two years, the President has absolutely eviscerated Bob Mueller, a lifelong public servant, a former marine, a registered Republican I might add….Did Robert Mueller deserve better from the President than this kind of language and behavior?”
Sanders countered: “Frankly, I think the American people deserved better. They didn’t deserve for the election of this president to be try to be taken down – ” Guthrie cut her off to lecture: “Wait, but the President’s rhetoric about a public servant doing a job.” Sanders pushed back hard: “Are you kidding! The President’s rhetoric matches, they are literally – the media and Democrats have called the President an agent of a foreign government, but that is an accusation equal to treason, which is punishable by death in this country.”
