A new report reveals that White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was lectured at by Bill Clinton’s former press secretary at a private event.
Her response shows why you shouldn’t mess with her.
According to a Politico article published Friday, Mike McCurry, former press secretary for Bill Clinton, was “letting her have it” at a private event in February. She reportedly said, “You have got to have an administration that’s committed to respect the role of the free press.”
“You cannot have a president who declares them to be the enemy and goes out and describes them as fake news every day,” he said.
However, Sanders refused to get political. She shot back, “I’m used to not always being the most popular person in the room.”
Politico also reports that Sanders eventually got sick of the lecture.
“Finally, Sanders had had enough. ‘We have not declared war on the press,’ she said. She smiled at the apparent ridiculousness of the idea, and even let out a chuckle.”
Sanders clapping back at her critics has made her one Trump’s most trusted cabinet members.
