White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders shutdown CNN’s April Ryan during her daily press briefing Monday; telling the network correspondent she’s “not going to begin to think what you think.”
Sanders was responding to Ryan’s question surrounding the President’s all-out war against California’s sanctuary policies; saying most people -even those in California- have had enough of the liberal guidelines regarding immigration.
“The President’s very clear in his statements about this issue,” said Ryan before reading President Trump’s comments surrounding California’s unconstitutional law. “What does he mean by that?”
“The President has recognized that this is a major problem. A lot of people -even in California- want to see the issue of Sanctuary Cities addressed. The President’s doing what he can to do that,” fired back Sanders.
“I’m not going to begin to think what you think. Certainly, it means a lot of things to a lot of different people. The President’s talking about a growing problem… I don’t have anything else to add,” said the Press Secretary.

SANDERS SMACKDOWN: Huckabee Sanders EDUCATES CNN’S Jim Acosta Over ‘COURAGE’
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called out CNN’s Jim Acosta on social media Monday evening, just hours after the reporter accused the Trump aide of intentionally ignoring his network due to their lack of “courage.”
Sparks flew between the two during the daily White House press briefing; with Acosta breathlessly asking his questions as Huckabee Sanders wrapped up the event and left the podium.
“Third press briefing in a row that @PressSec did not take a question from CNN. #courage” wrote Acosta on twitter.

The Press Secretary educated the CNN correspondent hours later, saying “Courage isn’t taking ‘a question from CNN,’ Jim. Courage is combat veterans Sgt. Peck and Staff Sgt. Dwyer – the two heroes at the briefing. #itsnotaboutyou.”

SARAH SMACKDOWN: Huckabee Sanders ROASTS Flake’s ‘RIDICULOUS’ Temper Tantrum
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders roasted Sen. Jeff Flake’s rant before the US Senate on Wednesday, calling the anti-Trump lawmaker’s speech a desperate attempt to gain national “attention.”
Sanders was speaking with reporters during the daily White House press briefing when she was asked to comment on Senator Jeff Flake’s bizarre address on the Senate floor, where he claimed the President was giving comfort to “dictators” around the world.
“Not only has the past year seen an American president borrow despotic language to refer to the free press, but it seems he has in turn inspired dictators and authoritarians with his own language. This is reprehensible,” Flake told his colleagues.

“I found it quite interesting that he is coming out to attack this President considering he’s the one that was recently defending an actually oppressive regime. He went to Cuba a few weeks ago and served as a mouthpiece for the oppressive Cuban government,” said Sanders.
“He’s not criticizing the President because he’s against oppression. He’s criticizing the President because he has terrible poll numbers. He is looking for some attention. I think it’s unfortunate,” she added.
