‘Oh, Sarah’: Nicolle Wallace destroys Huckabee Sanders for ‘defending the indefensible’

Published

on

On Thursday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended President Donald Trump’s retweeting of a British white supremacist group by saying that Trump is “elevating” the discussion.

Trump retweeted a trio of wildly anti-Muslim tweets from U.K. white supremacist group Britain First. The State Department has issued a rare warning to the White House that these kinds of inflammatory tweets could imperil the lives of Americans working abroad.

Wallace rolled a clip of Sanders’ Thursday press conference in which she said that the president was just calling attention to “the issues of the day” and that she expects “he will continue to do so.”

“I think what he’s done is to elevate the conversation to talk about a real issue and a real threat and that’s extreme violence and extreme terrorism, something that we know to be very real and something the president feels strongly about.”

“Oh, Sarah,” said Wallace after the clip. “Your boss doesn’t ‘elevate’ anything.”

Gantz spoke to journalists after Netanyahu called for them to join together in a unity government as results from Tuesday's vote showed neither with an obvious path to form a majority coalition.

Gantz's centrist Blue and White is nevertheless two seats ahead of Netanyahu's right-wing Likud, according to results published by Israeli media with 97 percent of the vote counted.

For his latest policy proposal, the Democratic presidential candidate returns to a cause he has championed since his days on the El Paso City Council.

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Thursday morning released a marijuana legalization plan that calls for clemency for everyone currently serving sentences for possession.

The former El Paso congressman also would push for a federal tax on the pot industry and put the revenue toward a "Drug War Justice Grant" for those formerly incarcerated for nonviolent marijuana offenses.
