We’re so lucky to be entertained by such a great White House press secretary! She is so smart and so witty!
Sarah Huckabee Sanders congratulated the University of Georgia and the University of Alabama for making the national college championship game then noted that both teams are “deep in the heart of Trump Country”. She was referring to the fact that both states overwhelmingly voted for President Trump in the 2016 election.
It didn’t take long for NBC News’ White House correspondent Peter Alexander to push back on Sanders: “Does the president see the country as Trump country and the rest of the country?” The press secretary smiled glibly noting that she was “simply making congratulating two great football teams in the greatest conference in the country.”
