White House press secretary Sarah Sanders has been around politics all her life, and has never seen such hostility toward an American president as today’s mainstream media spews about President Trump.
“I’ve been around press and worked in politics my entire life, and I’ve never experienced the kind of hostility that I think we see day to day,” Sanders told Fox News host Dana Perino (video below).
Sanders, the daughter of former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, was responding to comments by New York Times reporter Glenn Thrush, who insisted the perceived hostility between the media and the Trump administration is “overstated.”
But Sanders said it’s obvious the level of hostility toward the Trump White House is unprecedented, as evidenced by the media’s over-the-top biased coverage.
“There’s always going to be tension between whatever administration is in place with the White House press corps,” Sanders said. “But I do think there is a heightened tension certainly between this administration and the press. You can see that in the coverage.”
It’s ironic that Glenn Thrush would downplay the anti-Trump media bias since his (now inactive) Twitter feed is chock full of unhinged anti-Trump rants.
In 2015, Thrush famously confessed in leaked emails that he is “a hack” who ran his stories by Hillary Clinton‘s campaign chairman John Podesta for approval before publishing them. At the time, Thrush worked for Politico.
In one groveling, humiliating email, Thrush asked Podesta to review his story before it got published, and cravenly begged Podesta to not tell anyone he did this. Oops.
“Because I have become a hack I will send u the whole section that pertains to you,” Thrush wrote to Podesta. “Please don’t share or tell anyone I did this.”
After admitting he was a partisan hack using his “journalism” job to shill for Hillary, was Thrush fired or shunned by so-called journalists? Nope. Glenn was rewarded with a job at the New York Times — the holy grail of leftist propaganda.
There are countless examples of anti-Trump bias masquerading as “journalism” from CNN media hacks Jim Acosta, “Humpty-Dumpty” Brian Stelter, and CNN contributor April Ryan, who at age 50 doesn’t know the difference between annual income and net worth.

Last week, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow spewed a ridiculous anti-Trump conspiracy theory blaming the president for the ambush attacks in Niger. The claims were so far-fetched that even fellow liberals trashed them as “crazy.”
Meanwhile, Sarah Sanders is a trailblazer because she’s the first mom to serve as White House press secretary. Predictably, the mainstream media give her no credit for this feminist accomplishment. So Fox News’ Dana Perino asked Sanders how she juggles it all.
“You are the first working mother to ever have this job,” Perino said. “We know that you’re working 24/7. So how do you balance it all?”
Sanders replied: “One of the biggest things is the moments I do have with my kids, I have to be really present. I try to put my phone away and fully focus on the time that I have with them and try to block out specific time.”
Sarah also gave props to her supportive husband, Bryan Sanders, for her happy home life. Despite the media negativity and hard work, Sanders absolutely loves her job.
“I’ve always said if I ever walk into the building and I’m not in awe of being here, then I’ve been here too long and it’s time to go,” Sanders said. “Thankfully, I still feel a sense of reverence every time I step into the building, certainly every time I step into the briefing room. And I hope I never lose that.”
