White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders apparently forgot that she is not supposed to be a propaganda machine for Donald Trump. Instead, she works for us. Her job is supposed to be presenting facts from the president’s perspective.
“Facts” is the key word here, not Trump’s alternative reality. While he was on the campaign trail, 45 gave a rather remarkable sales pitch to a certain segment of society, his base. They fell for his con.
Then, the president took his sales act into the White House. Immediately after he was sworn into office, he forced then-press secretary, Sean Spicer, to walk to the podium and tell a whopper.
The press secretary was working for an audience of one, Donald Trump, when he said that the inauguration crowd was “largest audience…ever.” The Chicago Tribune reported that he said it was:
‘The largest audience to ever witness an inauguration — period — both in person and around the globe.’
Sanders argued that Democrats forced the president to end The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Her statement came the day after the commander-in-chief tweeted that the Democrats were tired of all his “winning.” He tweeted that “DACA is dead,” because Democrats gave him no other option.
Sanders claimed on Fox & Friends that Trump said Democrats used DACA recipients as “political pawns:”
‘Wanted to see something get done and Democrats refused to actually put something on the table or work with the president to get anything done. They wanted to use DACA recipients as political pawns.’
The press secretary Sanders said that Trump gave Democrats “two incredibly generous offers:”
‘I think what’s happened here is incredibly sad. Look, the president made two incredibly generous offers…and Democrats still refused to make a deal and I think it’s because we’re getting close to an election, they don’t want to see the president continue to win like he has for the last year and a half and they’re going to do everything they can, even if it means hurting people across this country if they think it takes a hit at the president.’
During the campaign, Trump predicted the Americans would tire of the “winning” after he became president.
While Trump was campaigning, he insisted that he would be such a successful president that people would become tired of all the “winning.” The Billings Gazette (Montana) reported that he was “going to win” at everything:
‘We’re going to win. We’re going to win so much. We’re going to win at trade, we’re going to win at the border. We’re going to win so much, you’re going to be so sick and tired of winning, you’re going to come to me and go “Please, please, we can’t win anymore.”‘
The president continued with the winning theme:
‘You’ve heard this one. You’ll say “Please, Mr. President, we beg you sir, we don’t want to win anymore. It’s too much. It’s not fair to everybody else.” And I’m going to say I’m sorry, but we’re going to keep winning, winning, winning, We’re going to make America great again.”‘
