A reporter asked White House press secretary Sarah Sanders on Tuesday if it’s “insensitive” for President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence to speak at the National Rifle Association (NRA) meeting.
Sanders didn’t even bat an eye when she answered this silly question.
“There are a lot of Americans who say this is an insensitive time to be speaking to the NRA given the epidemic of gun violence which the president himself has talked about,” he said. “What’s the administration’s response to that? Why make the decision to speak at the NRA now, as the president said before a lot of presidents have not spoken before the NRA at the convention?”
“Certainly as we’ve indicated on many occasions, safety is a big priority. Security is a big priority for the administration,” Sanders said.
“But we also support the Second Amendment, and strongly support it, and don’t see there to be a problem with speaking at the National Rifle Association’s meeting,” she added.
