Friday afternoon at the White House Press Briefing, Sarah Huckabee Sanders got into a tense exchange with American Urban Radio Networks correspondent and CNN contributor April Ryan. The topic? New comments made by Hillary Clinton about President Donald Trump’s past.
Ryan began by asking Sanders if conversations about sexual misconduct are “uncomfortable for the Trump White House” — an apparent reference to the at least 12 allegations women have made against the president.
“I think it’s uncomfortable conversation for the country,” Sanders said. “I think this is something that is being discussed pretty widely. And we certainly think that it should be taken very seriously.”
Ryan then informed Sanders that she’d spoken to Clinton — who told Ryan that she was worried about Trump’s past.
“[Clinton] said, ‘Look I worry about everything from his past because it tells you how he behaves in the present, and in the future.’ What do you say to that as it relates to these allegations against the president?” Ryan said.
The Sanders reply was terse.
“I think Hillary Clinton probably should have dealt with some of her own issues before addressing this president.”
