Sarah Sanders was fed up with repeated questions from reporters about Stormy Daniels and spoke up to shut down the noise. She told reporters at the Tuesday White House press briefing that when they ask the same question repeatedly, it doesn’t mean the White House needs to give a different answer. She’s got these reporters figured out.
CNN reporter Jeff Zeleny asked Sanders her fourth question during the briefing about adult film actress Stormy Daniels.
“I still don’t know that I understand why the president’s response has been so different in this case. On October 13, 2016, he said ‘these claims were all fabricated.’ The next day he said ‘I have no idea who these women are, they’re lying.’ Mrs. Trump has said ‘he would push back ten times as hard, no matter if you’re a man or a woman. He treats everyone equal.’ Why the silence?” Zeleny asked. “Is someone advising him to be silent or is he following his own–”
Sanders responded by taking a jab at reporters for asking the same question numerous times.
“I don’t think it’s silent when the president has addressed this. We’ve addressed it extensively. There’s just nothing else to add. Just because you guys continue to ask the same question over and over and over again, doesn’t mean that we have to keep coming up with new things to say,” Sanders said. “We’ve addressed it. We addressed it significantly and there’s nothing new to add.”
ZING! This is why we think Sarah is a gem of a press secretary for President Trump!
