‘Clueless!’ Sarah Sanders rips into ‘shameful’ media after bogus NY Times headline on Pompeo

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders blasted the “clueless” and “out of touch” media for its “shameful” coverage of the administration.

Sanders was specifically referring to a New York Times story published Tuesday slamming Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for being absent during a critical time for President Trump.

“I addressed this today in the briefing. I think it’s shameful what the media sometimes does,” Sanders told Fox News’ Martha MacCallum on Wednesday.

“I got the same number of questions today about Michael Cohen that I got about North Korea,” she said.  “I think that is sad and another reminder that shows us just how out of touch the media is with the rest of America and I think that is a perfect example of just how clueless sometimes the media can be.”

In the New York Times piece, which was headlined, “At a Key Moment, Trump’s Top Diplomat Is Again Thousands of Miles Away,” Pompeo was criticized for being in North Korea as Trump made his long-anticipated statement on the Iran nuclear deal.

“His top diplomat was thousands of miles away, but what they forgot to include was that he was thousands of miles away negotiating the details of the meeting between the president and Kim Jong-un,” Sanders explained, “as well as bringing three brave Americans back home to the United States.”

The president, accompanied by first lady Melania Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, welcomed home the three Americans who were being detained by North Korea when they touched down at Joint Base Andrews early Thursday morning.

“To me that seems like exactly what his job is supposed to do,” Sanders said about Pompeo. “He was doing it and the president was doing his job back here.”

“This is an administration that likes to get more than one thing done a day,” she added.  “As you guys know, we stay really busy. And this is going to be a big night and certainly I think a moment that we are very glad secretary Pompeo was away from the United States for in order to help make it happen.”
