At the press conference today, Sarah Huckabee Sanders appeared and there was one. The press briefer has become rarer than hen’s teeth in the last few weeks, but this one was glorious. The following exchange took place between Jim Acosta from CNN and Sanders after he asked who was the victim in the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings. She claimed that both Brett Kavanaugh and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford are victims of the Democrats. He asked her if she had problems with the facts in the following exchange:
Acosta: “Do you have any problems with the facts?”
Sanders: “I don’t have any problem stating facts. I know that’s something you probably do have a problem with.”
Acosta: “We do state the facts. I think there have been many occasions when you don’t state the facts.”
It was glorious. Reporters have sat through these “Shiteburger Helper” pressers for a year and a half now, and Sanders just spews proverbial nonsense written in many instances by her counsel, who sit with her before she goes out and draft nonsensical responses to just about everything that could be asked.
Acosta has been a verbal punching bag of Donald J. Trump and his band of ne’er-do-wells and sycophants at press briefings, at rallies, just about anywhere. Trump has pointed him out, referred to him as the enemy, etc. It was as if Acosta put on his superhero costume today, Superhero SHAMman, “Shite Huckster Anti-Manure Man.” Hat’s off to him for not putting up with the snarkiness that is Sanders. Now, more than ever, we need every press person to call what they are getting from the White House what it is – shite huckstering.
