CNN’s Jim Acosta tried and failed to catch Sarah Huckabee Sanders in a trap. He threw a race-baiting question at her during a press briefing and she didn’t bat an eye.
“Can I ask you about a tweet that the president put out last week?” Acosta asked the press secretary.
“He tweeted a lot over the weekend, but, last week, he was talking about sanctuary cities in California and, saying there was a revolution going on in California, some of these sanctuary areas want out of this ridiculous crime infested and breeding concept.”
He then went in for the kill.
“We haven’t had a chance to ask you about that tweet — when he used the word breeding, was he making a derogatory term about Latinos in California? That they breed a lot, or that they’re prone to breeding?” Acosta continued.
Sanders is a consummate professional. She wasn’t the least bit flustered by Acosta’s attack.
“No, he’s talking about the problem itself growing and getting bigger,” she replied calmly.
Conversations with liberal talking heads are loaded with landmines. Acosta obviously wanted to lead Sanders into saying something awkward about the president. They deliberately take his words and put the worst possible construction on them.
Sanders is handling the stress a lot better than her predecessor, Sean Spicer, did. He was a mess. He created more scandals than he tamed.
If the left wants to continue pushing the “President Trump is racist” lie, they’re going to need to come up with better material than dissecting old tweets. CNN has been up in arms over the “breeding” tweet for days.
Trump’s presidency is too successful for them to come up with real complaints so they’re wasting time on imaginary. It’s an effective strategy if your audience doesn’t care about the truth and just wants to see President bashed.
