The first week of 2018 has been chock full of chaotic, breaking news coming out of the White House.

However, most of the news media has had their eyes glued to the blossoming war between POTUS and former Trump staffer Steve Bannon.

At Thursday’s White House press briefing, Sarah Sanders was asked a series of questions on the claims in the book, which Trump is currently fighting legally to keep from being published.  The book claims that those close to Trump believe he is mentally unfit for office. Sanders was asked by a reporter, “What is the president’s reaction of the suggestions in this book that he is mentally unfit?”

Sanders laughed and called the claim and the book “disgraceful and laughable:”

If [Trump] was unfit, he probably would not be sitting there and would not have defeated the most qualified group of candidates the Republican Party has ever seen. This is an incredibly — strong and good leader, that is why we have had such a successful 2017 and why we are going to continue to do great things as we move forward in the administration.
