White House Reporter Quickly Learned How Little Patience Sanders Has For “Gotcha” Questions BOOM!

By

During a press conference Wednesday, one reporter asked:

“The president’s dinner tonight with Schumer and Pelosi. They seem to be getting close. But in the past, the president has called Chuck Schumer a clown, Pelosi a loser. But now he seems to recognize that he needs them. How does that work? What changed?”

Sanders responded:

“I think it’s less about him needing them but as more about the president wanting to work with them and wanting to help move this country forward. As we’ve said many times before, we’ve got a very ambitious legislative agenda for this fall and the president wants to work with anybody that wants to move America forward.

And if they’re willing to do that, sit down, be part of that conversation on both tax cuts and tax reform, responsible immigration reform, then the president certainly welcomes those conversations.”

Watch:

Minutes later, a reporter asked:

“So is the president negotiating on behalf of the Republican leadership on the hill?”

Sanders held nothing back when she responded:

“The president’s negotiated on behalf of the American people, exactly what he was elected to do. The idea that you guys keep trying to distort this into a bad thing is I think exactly why this president was elected. They’re sick and tired of business as usual. They wanted somebody that who would break up the status quo, that would bring people from both sides of the table together to have conversations.

This president has done more for bipartisanship in the last eight days than Obama did in eight years.”
