A panel on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” turned into a hate-fest directed against White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
“Beside not telling the truth, [Sander’s] job is to go out and represent to the American people and the press what the president is thinking,” Willie Geist said. “Well, in this case she didn’t know what the president is thinking, because Trump and Rudy Giuliani are making strategy together, Daniel, independent of the White House communications shop. So she goes out there and says something, meanwhile she doesn’t know that behind the scenes Giuliani and Trump have cooked up an idea he should go on Hannity and say that he reimbursed repayments without the press office knowing.”
“So yes, she often lies, but sometimes she isn’t told what’s going on in the office behind her,” he added.
“It’s almost worse that she maintains the lie,” guest Daniel Goldman said. “She doesn’t correct herself, she doesn’t come and say, you know what, that was a misstatement, some explanation or some degree of vulnerability that. ‘I wasn’t informed of the whole thing,’ and to your point about Giuliani and Trump, it’s almost as if they’re sitting around sofa together spit-balling ideas.”
“Oh, it’s unbelievable,” host Mika Brzezinski said.
