White House press secretary Sarah Sanders blasted CNN for trivializing Indian-American Trump aide Raj Shah by referring to him as “whatever his name is”.
Monday night, CNN host Chris Cuomo referred to Raj Shah as “Raj whatever-his-name-is” during a segment condemning President Donald Trump for being racially insensitive.
“Remember … we went to the White House when it happened, and Raj whatever-his-name-is didn’t back off the words,” Cuomo said earlier Monday.

Sarah Sanders, in her usual direct way, hammered CNN for their inability to properly identify Shah, not just once…but twice.
