Sarah Huckabee Sanders Spouted Some Bold Faced Lies, Then Jake Tapper Brought Her Down A Peg

Michael Wolff, an American journalist who has written for New York Magazine and Vanity Fair, has written a book called Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. Wolff’s book promises stories and secrets from the interworking of the Trump administration, as well as explosive interviews with former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon.

Wolff, who said that President Trump himself encouraged his writing, gives a rather unfiltered account of the current state of the White House after conducting more than 200 interviews with the President and his staff. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sander’s official position is that the book is “trashy tabloid fiction.”

“We’re certainly happy for people that had different opinions but there’s a difference between a different opinions and different facts and people are entitled to their opinion but they’re not entitled to their own facts and we have a big problem with people putting out misleading information, those are very different things,” said Sanders about Wolff’s book.

Fair enough. However, on CNN’s The Lead, Jake Tapper called out Sanders’ response to the press as a bit hypocritical in nature, due to the President’s well documented history of proclaiming his opinions as facts.

“Just a reminder Sarah, the president claimed with no evidence that 3 to 5 million people voted illegally in the 2016 election, that Ted Cruz’s father was involved in the Kennedy assassination, that thousands of muslims in New Jersey were seen cheering after the 9/11 attacks and that President Obama wasn’t born in the United States, which of course, he was. But, I’m sorry, you were saying something about misleading information and the need to stick to facts,” said Tapper.

The President has been having such a great time using fact and opinion as interchangeable terms to benefit whatever meets his fancy that it got him all the way to the White House. No more. As much as he would like to believe those are the rules of life, that’s not how it works. Thankfully, we have people like Tapper to call out the hypocrisy in action and remind his audience what the facts truly are.
