Question of the Day: "Come on Sarah. You’re a parent. Don’t you have any empathy…?” - Brian Karem asked of Sarah Huckabee Sanders in WH press briefing.
Answer of the Day: No! - Scriber.
Jen Hayden at Daily Kos reports on that amazing press briefing in which Sarah Suckabee Handers defended the Trump administration ripping children from their parents. Sparks flew in the press briefing room as heartless White House defended imprisoning border kids.
"You’re a parent, Sarah, come on!” Sarah Huckabee Sanders took a brief (and I mean very brief) couple of minutes to take questions from the White House press corps. Amid widespread reports of breastfeeding babies being taken from their mother’s arms and infants and young children being held indefinitely in prison-like conditions, reporters hammered Sarah Sanders for answers. All they got was deflection, lies and an astonishing reference to the Bible. Yes, Sarah Sanders said taking children from their parents and locking them up in cages inside a former Walmart is just what the Bible ordered.
First, CBS reporter Paula Reid asked Sanders about the administration’s decision to tear families apart, pointing out this is a policy put in place by the Trump administration, and that there is no law requiring families be ripped apart and separately incarcerated. Sanders tried to swat her away, but Reid kept at it. As Sanders again tried to change the subject, Playboy Magazine reporter Brian Karem interjected to press even harder.
The question was in response to a speech made by Attorney General Jeff Sessions earlier in the day. Seriously, you have to watch this evil, evil use of the Bible to justify tearing families apart.
And Sarah Huckabee Sanders, daughter of a so-called Christian minister, also wielded the Bible in defense of questions from the White House press corps. It’s just sick. When CNN’s Jim Acosta tries to dig deeper, she calls him “dumb.”
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: When the history of America is told, this will indeed be one of the darkest chapters. Pure evil.
We really are living America’s darkest hours.
