Sanders jumps in to defend Trump’s tweet Gillibrand ‘would do anything,’ her response silences them

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders had a fiery retort to the press corps over the crude inferences being drawn about Trump’s morning tweet that New York Senator Kristen Gillibrand “would do anything” for campaign contributions:

“Is Gillibrand owed an apology over the misunderstanding of the president’s tweet this morning,” a reporter asked. “Because many, including the senator, think it’s about sexual innuendos.”

“Only if your mind is in the gutter would you have read it that way,” Sanders retorted. “So, no.” Then she summarily dismissed the matter.

This is the comment that the media pounced on this morning, including Morning Joe’s Mika Brzezinski, who launched into an incredibly heated tirade.  “It makes my blood boil,” Mika ranted.

As proof that Donald Trump is the master of plausible deniability comes this tidbit about the precise verbiage in dispute; namely, that Gillibrand “would do anything” for campaign contributions.


Not once, not twice, but at least three times prior Donald Trump has used the “do anything” barb about politicians and organizations. Namely, Ted Cruz, the Club for Growth, and politicians like Jeb Bush.

Unless he made some kind of sick innuendos about these politicians, the Democrats’ complaints about the Trump tweet now look completely baseless at this point.

This is the trap reporters fall into when they are more interested in pursuing a leftwing activist agenda than bearing in mind plausible alternative explanations.  Nowadays, reporters are reading into events whatever they want to see, because “getting Trump” is the goal to be accomplished at all costs.
