White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told NBC's "Today" that both Democrats and the mainstream liberal media need to apologize to President Trump for creating a, “massive disruption and distraction,” from issues that need to be tackled in the country.
“I think Democrats and the liberal media owe the president and they owe the American people an apology,” Sanders told host Savannah Guthrie. “They wasted two years and created a massive disruption and distraction from things that impact everyone’s day-to-day life.”
Guthrie impelled Sanders to answer whether or not Trump was being too harsh to special counsel Robert Mueller over the Russia investigation. Trump called the probe a, “witch hunt,” labeled Mueller, “highly conflicted,” and said that his team of Democrats were, “thugs.”
There is No Collusion! The Robert Mueller Rigged Witch Hunt, headed now by 17 (increased from 13, including an Obama White House lawyer) Angry Democrats, was started by a fraudulent Dossier, paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC. Therefore, the Witch Hunt is an illegal Scam!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 29, 2018
Universities will someday study what highly conflicted (and NOT Senate approved) Bob Mueller and his gang of Democrat thugs have done to destroy people. Why is he protecting Crooked Hillary, Comey, McCabe, Lisa Page & her lover, Peter S, and all of his friends on the other side?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 15, 2018
“For the last two years, the president has absolutely eviscerated Bob Mueller, a lifelong public servant, a former Marine, a registered Republican, I might add,” Guthrie said. “He’s called him a national disgrace, discredited, a prosecutor gone rogue who oversaw a gang of thugs.”
Sanders said that the American people didn’t deserve to have the election of their president, “taken down,” by a two-year long investigation, which turned up no evidence that Trump was colluding with Russia during his campaign.
When Guthrie doubled down on Trump’s, “rhetoric … about a public servant doing a job,” Sanders put her hand over the table in riposte.
“Are you kidding?” Sanders responded. “The media and Democrats have called the president an agent of a foreign government. That is an accusation equal to treason, which is punishable by death in this country.”
