Sarah Sanders goes medieval on Jeff Flake after reporter dares to say his name at press conference

White House correspondent Major Garrett of CBS News showed brazen courage when he brought up He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named at Tuesday’s press conference.

No, we’re not talking about Voldemort, but Senator Jeff Flake, he who has made a living recently off grandstanding lectures about the Trump presidency.

“Senator Flake said something on the Senate floor and I want to give a chance to respond,” Garrett began. “He said, and I quote, ‘I have seen the president’s most ardent defenders used the argument that the president’s [treason] comments were meant as a joke. Just sarcasm, only tongue-in-cheek. But treason is not a punch line. Can you say for the sake of the future that you agree with Senator Flake on that, that treason or treasonous is a punch line, is not a joking matter?”

“Look, honestly, I’m not going to respond directly to Senator Flake’s comments,” Sanders said, before lowering the boom. “I don’t really care what Senator Flake has to say. I don’t think his constituents do either and that’s why his numbers are on the take. The president was clearly joking with his comments.”

“But what isn’t a joke is that Democrats refuse to celebrate the accomplishments of last year that has helped all Americans,” she continued. “What I don’t understand, what I don’t think the country understands is why Democrats are so upset about lower taxes and higher wages.”

“That’s something that every American should be celebrating, not crying about, not sitting on their hands for,” she concluded. “Democrats are going to have to make a decision at some point really soon, do they hate this president more than they love this country. And I hope the answer to that is no.”

Sarah Sanders found a way to rip Senator Flake and the Democratic Party in the same rant. Admittedly, that’s becoming easier and easier to do with each passing day.
