    Donald Trump

    White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has a hell of a job having to constantly defend a president who is clearly failing in every poll and grows even less popular by the day. Donald Trump’s current situation is so dire that even his own team is having a hard time defending him without insulting him – and that’s exactly what Huckabee Sanders accidentally did earlier today.

    During a press briefing, Huckabee Sanders unintentionally trashed Trump in front of a room full of reporters when someone asked a question about GOP Senator Jeff Flake, who recently condemned Trump for attacking the media on the Senate floor. In response to that question, Huckabee Sanders made several failed attempts to discredit Flake, such as claiming that Flake defended Cuba in the past. Huckabee Sanders said:

    “I found it quite interesting that he is coming out to attack this president considering that he is the one that was recently defending an actually oppressive regime and served as a mouthpiece for the oppressive Cuban government.”

    That angle didn’t really work, so Huckabee Sanders tried something else – and threw Trump and his failing presidency right under the bus. Huckabee Sanders lashed out at Flake, stating that his speech was just a cry for attention while he struggles in the polls. Not knowing what she was actually doing, Huckabee Sanders said this:

    “He’s not criticizing the president because he’s against oppression. He’s criticizing the president because he has terrible poll numbers and he is, I think, looking for some attention.”

    That’s an awfully strange thing to say when you’re defending someone who has historically abysmal poll numbers and is infamous for being an attention wh*re. And to make matters worse, Huckabee Sanders followed this up with a flat-out lie:

    “Our position at the White House is that we welcome access to the media every day. I’m standing right here taking questions. The president does so regularly. To act as if we are anything but open to that back and forth exchange is utterly ridiculous.”

    Everyone knows that Trump’s White House has done everything possible to obstruct and limit media access and has been more secretive than any other administration. Huckabee Sanders failed miserably to save her boss from criticism, and proves that it’s not possible to defend Trump without making him look even worse.
