Sarah Huckabee Sanders is the the most insidious of all of the past press secretaries. This woman will go to the ends of the earth to make Trump appealing in some way. But Sanders, as posed as she may be, seemed to make a huge slip-up on Tuesday’s interview with reporters.
Sanders did not deny that so-called President Trump had called Haiti and some African nations “s***hole countries”, saying Trump himself had never denied using harsh language on immigration.
When asked by reporters whyTrump had defended the comments privately but denied them publicly, Sanders said:
“The President hasn’t said he didn’t use strong language.”
“This is an important issue, he’s passionate about it, he’s not going to apologize for trying to fix our immigration system.”
She then attmepted to back up her statement by saying that Trump can’t possibly be a racist because he produced a T.V. show, and networks would never willingly let a bigot produce a televised show.
If you don’t think that is utterly insane, watch it for yourself below:
Sarah Huckabee Sanders says Trump isn’t racist because NBC gave him a TV show, which is like saying Bill Cosby isn’t a rapist because NBC gave him a TV show too. https://t.co/lkQKyifXKU pic.twitter.com/PDxRvFm5BQ

It’s amazing how reporters and journalists still put up with Sander’s remarks. She never gives a definitive answer to any question. She sprouts vague non-answers, deflects, and then comes up with the most ridiculous examples to back up her statements with. She might as well just write the news and tell agencies to publish it unchecked. This woman is the definition of absurdity.
