Reporters Try To Press Sarah Sanders on National Anthem Protests but Her Response is a Grand Slam
There is one job that is unequivocally the hardest job in Washington DC and thats being President. But being White House Press Secretary in unequivocally the second hardest. Luckily, Sarah Huckabee Sanders is up to the task.
Today Sanders stepped to the podium amidst a difficult 4 days for the country as comments by President Trump sparked wide-spread protests during NFL games on Sunday. Sanders was asked immediately about the controversy:
“This isn’t about the president being against anyone. This is about the president and millions of Americans being for something. Being for honoring our flag, honoring our national anthem, and honoring the men and women who fought to defend it.”
Reporters continued to press Sanders repeatedly on the issue with questions related to the “appropriateness” of Trumps Comments. Her response was right on the money.
When pressed again, Sanders made the White House’s position clear:
“It is always appropriate for the president to defend our flag, to defend the national anthem. Hold on, I’m not finished. It’s always appropriate for the president of this country to promote our flag, to promote our national anthem, and ask people to respect it.”
Protests are expected to continue for the foreseeable future and it is likely the President will have much more to say, or tweet, in the days ahead.
