To say that Michael Wolff’s new book, “Fire and Fury,” has caused some controversy is the understatement of the year. The book makes some pretty outlandish claims, some of which Wolff has admitted he’s not even sure are true. One of the book’s claims concerned the mental health of President Donald Trump.
Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, however, isn’t having any of it.
During a recent news briefing, Sanders began by saying she wasn’t going to address all of the outrageous claims Wolff’s book mentions. “I am not going to waste my time or the country’s time going page by page talking about a book that is complete fantasy and just full of tabloid gossip because it is bad, pathetic, and our focus is going to be on moving the country forward,” she told the press.
Then, a reporter asked about the claim concerning Trump’s mental health for day to day operations. “It’s disgraceful and laughable,” Sanders responded.
“If he was unfit, he probably wouldn’t be sitting there and wouldn’t have defeated the most qualified group of candidates the Republican Party has ever seen. This is an incredibly strong and good leader. That’s why we’ve had such a successful in 2017 and why we’re going to continue to do great things as we move forward in this administration,” she continued.
In an interview with “Fox and Friends,” Sanders doubled down on her statements. “Look, I think it’s absolutely insane to think all of these individuals, reporters and others, who all of a sudden have a medical degree and think that they can diagnose somebody, many times that they’ve never had a conversation with,” she told the panel.
“It’s absolutely outrageous to make these types of accusations, and it’s simply untrue, and it’s sad that people are going and making these desperate attempts to attack the president,” she said.
Sanders response to the media and reporters was excellent.
This man is someone who beat a slew of great candidates in the 2016 election. One has to wonder how someone with mental health issues could pull off such a feat.
Not only did he happen to beat all of the Republican candidates, he was able to beat the Clinton war machine that has taken out so many other candidates.
Furthermore, the stock market is booming, unemployment is down, especially in the black community, and we are winning the war against the Islamic State terror group. Are these the results of a mad man?
I seriously doubt it.
The truth is, there are just a lot of people who are still furiously mad that Donald Trump is president of United States. He was a D.C. outsider who was never supposed to be a serious candidate.
Now, he’s president and draining the swamp. Those are two things that the D.C. elite cannot stand, and, as evidenced by the reporters questions, they are continuing to throw their childish hissy fits.
