Deputy White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders filled in for Sean Spicer at Friday’s White House briefing, and not only did she not miss a beat, she even managed to land a perfectly timed body blow on a major liberal news outlet, Politico.
If the media thought they’d get a break with Sean Spicer off on Naval Reserve duty, they were sorely mistaken.
Needless to say, Dad was proud.

As would be expected, most of the questions were about the Obamacare replacement bill the House recently passed.
After making it clear that the White House “expects changes” in the Senate to the bill, she was asked about the bill’s passage without a score from the Congressional Budget Office.
“I know the gospel pretty well. The CBO is not the gospel. They’ve been wrong before, they could certainly be wrong again,” Sanders said.
Sanders had some advice for a reporter who cited a Politico report claiming that the administration is going to “gut” the Office of National Drug Control Policy:
“My first piece of advice would never be to use Politico as a source for your story,” Sanders said, adding that the opioid crisis is a “top priority” for this administration “that won’t go ignored.”
According to Fox News, the report cites critics who argue that efforts to combat the opioid epidemic will be hurt by cutting funding for the office.
