President Donald Trump is reportedly somewhat less than thrilled with his press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, for her comments during Wednesday’s briefing addressing the Stormy Daniels story.
According to CNN’s Abby Phillip (citing reporting from Jim Acosta), Trump believes that Sanders essentially breathed life into the Stormy Daniels controversy with her Wednesday remarks.
“According to this source, Sarah Sanders’ comments were essentially putting the Stormy Daniels storyline on steroids yesterday,” Phillip said.
Sanders, in the Wednesday briefing, said “the president has denied the allegations against him. And again, this case has already been won in arbitration.”
Those comments from Sanders led many to point out that the White House was confirming that Trump engaged in some sort of legal agreement with the porn star.
In an appearance on MSNBC Wednesday night, Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti dismissed the Sanders statement that the matter has been settled as categorically false.
“I personally like Ms. Sanders. I think she has a near impossible job,” Avenatti said. “I’m confident she didn’t know it was nonsense when she effectively told that to the world. But it’s absolutely bogus. It’s nonsense.”
