White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders returned to the forefront Wednesday to give a press briefing after Trump’s trip to Europe to meet with NATO leaders and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
This was too much for some people to handle.
Anti-Trump comedienne Chelsea Handler lashed out, commenting on Sanders’ looks and calling her a liar.

She wasn’t the only one to get a bit ornery over the briefing.
One day, and I don’t know how or when, @PressSec must be held fully accountable for lying to the American people every single day.
To put it mildly, she is a reprehensible human being who displays no evidence of a conscience. #PressBriefing

I’m glad Sarah Huckabee Sanders took a break from giving Trump credit for Obama’s economic trends to blame Obama for not doing enough to keep Trump from becoming president.

If Trump said gravity was fake news, Sarah Sanders would find a way to float during the ensuing press briefing.

At the briefing, Sanders dressed down the media for reporting literal fake news, saying, “There was massive media hysteria yesterday over confusion between that individual and a White House staffer which I think shows frankly the outrageousness and the, just desire to find the negative in everything that this president does just because somebody was simply red-headed, they were accused of being some sort of spy for Russia.” (RELATED: ‘Totally Out Of Control’ — Sarah Sanders Calls Out The Media For Reporting Literal Fake News)
