WATCH: Sarah Sanders Confronted on Trump’s Whopper of a Lie About Backing Immigration Bill

Saturday afternoon, President Donald Trump made the comical claim that he did not push House Republicans to vote for an immigration bill from Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA).

Just three days earlier, the president gave his full, emphatic support to Goodlatte’s bill.

Monday, during the first White House briefing since those tweets, Politico‘s Matthew Nussbaum confronted press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders about Trump’s absurd claim.

“Why would the president lie about something like that?” Nussbaum said.

“He didn’t,” Sanders said, lying. She then promptly pivoted to bashing Democrats over the failure to get legislation passed.
