White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders got a bit testy with NBC’s Peter Alexander during the briefing Monday after he asked if President Trump thinks he’s “above the law.”


“Does the president believe that he is above the law?” Alexander asked.

“Certaintly not, the president hasn’t done anything wrong,” Sanders said.

“The question is, does the president believe the framers envisioned a system where the president can pardon himself, where the president could be above the law?” he said.

“Certainly, the Constitution very clearly lays out the law. Once again, the president hasn’t done anything wrong, and we feel very comfortable on that front.”

Alexander then continued to ask the same question while Sanders was attempting to move to other reporters. The two went back and forth until he said, “I’ll just keep asking if I can…”

Sanders shot back, “No, you can’t actually.” She later moved on to another reporter. (RELATED: Reporters Shout At Sarah Sanders As She Enters The State Dinner With France — She Makes Them Eat Snails)
