White House press secretary Sarah Sanders came out swinging against the liberal media on Monday, blasting Democrats for supporting late-term abortion and refusing to condemn Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-Minn.) anti-Semitic remarks.
“The real shame in all of this is that Democrats are perfectly capable of coming together and agreeing on the fact that they are comfortable ripping babies straight from a mother’s womb or killing a baby after birth, but they have a hard time condemning the kind of comments from Congresswoman Omar,” Sanders said.
She continued: “I think that is a great shame. The president has been clear on what his position is, certainly what his support is for the people of Israel.”
CNN’s Jim Acosta then rushed to the defend of Democrats, accusing Sanders of stating things that are “patently untrue.” “Democrats don’t hate Jewish people,” Acosta said. “That is just silly.”
“I think they should call out their members by name, and we’ve made that clear. I don’t have anything further for you, Jim,” Sanders shot back.
However, as he regularly does, Acosta refused to yield the floor and continued to badger Sanders at the podium.
He alleged that President Donald Trump once suggested there were “fine people” in the Nazis, something Sanders pushed back forcefully against.
“That’s not at all what the president was stating,” Sanders said. “The president has been incredibly clear… and repeatedly condemned hatred, bigly, racism in all of its forms.”
