Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday made a stunning claim that Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) and Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) are somehow responsible for the derailment of Donald Trump’s legislative agenda.
During a freewheeling press conference, Sanders told reports to imagine what could be accomplished if people like Sen. Corker “started doing their job, instead of doing so much grandstanding on TV.”
The idea that someone working for Trump—a literal reality TV star—could make a claim that senators are “grandstanding on TV” shocked the Internet on Tuesday, with users taking to Twitter to express disbelief over Huckabee Sanders’ remark.
