Sarah Sanders Knocks Hillary’s Book (Again): It’s Filled With a ‘Lot of False Narratives’


A day after slamming former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s new book about the 2016 election, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders used the podium to once again tear into Clinton and What Happened.

After Sanders was asked at today’s press briefing about Clinton’s recent comments about President Donald Trump and how she wished he’d be the president for all Americans, the press secretary took aim at the ex-Secretary of State and her tome.

“I think that misunderstanding of who this president is — and frankly a misunderstanding of what he’s been doing — is frankly one of the reasons Hillary Clinton is not the president,” Sanders declared, “and is instead pushing a book with a lot of false narratives and lot of, I think, false accusations and placing blame on a lot of other people instead of accepting it herself.”

Later on in the briefing, Sanders was asked if she could point to any specific accusations in the book that was factually incorrect. Her answer was, should we say, very unspecific.

“I think probably the biggest one is any place within the book where she lays the blame for the loss on anyone but herself,” she stated.

During an appearance on The View this morning, Clinton clapped back at Sanders over her initial comments about the book, stating “I don’t pay much attention to what she says.”
