Sarah Sanders’ Plan to Give Out the NYT’s Phone Number to Expose ‘Anonymous Coward’ Fails Miserably

On Thursday, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders blasted the New York Times and encouraged Trump supporters to “call the opinion desk of the NYT” to help find out who the “gutless loser” who wrote the op-ed is.

Her snarky plan failed miserably.

Instead of being flooded with angry calls, editors and staffers from the New York Times reported people were calling to show their support.

Reporter Kenneth Vogel even shared audio of a voicemail saying, “I just wanna thank you a million times over.”

Others also reported getting similar calls not to demand the “coward” be exposed but encouraging to keep doing what they are doing.
