CNN’s Jake Tapper on Monday pushed back against the Trump administration after White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the media of deliberately misleading the American people.
“You might find it hard to believe, but the Trump White House today said it is wrong when people put out information they know to be incorrect in an attempt to mislead the republic,” Tapper began. “That’s right, the White House, run by the president who came to political prominence by promoting the lie that the first African-American president was born in Africa, is finding time to take issue with those who mislead people.”
“The White House, run by the president who said with no evidence that crowds of American Muslims were seen on TV celebrating in New Jersey after 9/11,” Tapper continued. “The man who repeated the the ludicrous claim that Ted Cruz’s father had something to do with the Kennedy assassination, and the man who said with no evidence there were 3 to 5 million fraudulent votes for Hillary Clinton.”
