On Wednesday, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders held a White House press briefing in the wake of a horrific school shooting in Kentucky Tuesday which led to two deaths and 18 injuries. The shooter’s motive is still unknown.
The reporter, NBC’s Peter Alexander, asked: “What has the president done since October to prevent any of the shootings from taking place?”
Sanders replied that: “The president believes that all Americans deserve to be safe in their schools and in their communities,” and that “we’ve tried to crack down on crime throughout the country.”
Alexander pressed and asked Sanders: “But what is the President specifically doing? You guys said at the time, today was not the day, but we should have this policy.”
Sanders interrupted him saying: “Look, I just read off a lot of the things that he’s doing.”
“You said we should have the policy conversations,” Alexander continued. “So the question is, what is the policy the President is willing to pursue or actively direct others to pursue to help make sure that these students are safe?”
“The Department of Justice instructed ATF to do a thorough review on a number of firearm provisions,” Sanders said, referring to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. “That is ongoing.”
“Will the president come forward before the nation and tell people how he feels and use the bully pulpit,” he continued before the press secretary interrupted him.
Sanders raised her voice in disbelief, asking if the reporter was implying that Trump was “complicit” in the school shooting. She said:
“The fact that you’re basically accusing the president of being complicit in a school shooting is outrageous!”
When the reporter clarified, Sanders made the following point:
“The president has been very clear in instructing the top law enforcement agency to crack down on crime to prevent these types of things. We’ve talked about it here numerous times and we’re going to continue moving forward in that process. Thanks, guys.”
She then ended the briefing.
How about this instead. “What has the NBC done since October to prevent any of the shootings from taking place?” After all, NBC is in every living room in the country 365 days per year. Its influence is massive.
Everyday in every way Sarah has millions of us falling madly in love with her, she loves America, she loves her job and she loves dishing back on the BS reporters of lamestream media… She answered his question, gave him a list of things the President is doing and made it very clear. And he still pretended to not understand. smh. She has great patience with reporters like him.
She is the best! Good pick President Trump!
