Facing a barrage of questions on President Donald Trump‘s Tweets about Mika Brzezinski, White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders fired back, blasting the media for their focus on Trump’ Twitter account and the Russia probe.
Huckabee Sanders cited a study from the conservative Media Research Center, which claimed that the big three evening newscasts spent a combined 353 minutes covering the Russia probe from May 17-June 20, 306 minutes more than any other Trump-related topic.
“If you guys want to talk about legislative agenda and focus on policy and priorities, you guys get to help set that table,” Huckabee Sanders said. And 353 minutes of attacks against the president and driving a false narrative?…That’s over the course of a month. That’s crazy. The numbers…guys, the numbers don’t lie.”
The Deputy Press Secretary has been relentless in criticizing the media this week, and it culminated with Thursday’s fiery rant.
The media’s focus on priorities, they don’t line up with the rest of America. Right now, we’ve got our economies growing, the stock market is up, unemployment is down, jobs are back, and ISIS is on the run. America is winning and that’s what we’d like to talk about. But you guys constantly ignore that narrative.
