White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Wednesday refused to deny that President Donald Trump asked acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe who he voted for.
According to The Washington Post, Trump asked McCabe who he voted for in the 2016 presidential election. McCabe reportedly told the president that he did not vote. The president has also been accused of asking former FBI Director James Comey for a loyalty pledge.
At Wednesday’s briefing CBS correspondent Cecilia Vega asked Sanders if Trump “made a habit” of asking officials how they voted.
“Not that I’m aware of,” Sanders replied.
When Vega pressed about Trump’s conversation with McCabe, Sanders did not deny that the president asked the acting FBI director how he voted.
“I can’t get into the details of what was discussed, I wasn’t there,” Sanders stated.
“It’s a yes or no question,” Vega pointed out. “He did or he didn’t ask.”
“I wasn’t in the room, I don’t know,” Sanders shot back. “I know he didn’t ask me.”
Later in the briefing, the press secretary became visibly disturbed when reporters pressed her on the question.
“I very seriously doubt that any person in America would list that as an issue they care about,” Sanders insisted.

New poll shows Republicans may get wiped out — in Mitch McConnell’s home state of Kentucky
This year, Republicans may be heading for a rough election in an unlikely state: Kentucky.
New internal Democratic polls reveal that the GOP is struggling in three critical Kentucky races taking place in November. In the gubernatorial race, incumbent GOP Gov. Matt Bevin is trailing Democratic Attorney General Steve Beshear 48 to 39.
Further down the ballot, the GOP is also vulnerable. In the attorney general race to replace Beshear, former Democratic state House Speaker Greg Stumbo is ahead 46 to 39 against Republican Daniel Cameron, the former legal counsel to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. And in the secretary of state race, where incumbent Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes is retiring, Democratic former Second Lady of Kentucky and Miss America 2000 pageant winner Heather French Henry leads GOP former Justice Department lawyer Michael Adams 52 to 37.
‘I’ve been insulted by better’: Hilarious video shows gay man perfectly handling slur-spewing drunk woman
A gay man is being celebrated as a hilarious good Samaritan for handling an angry drunk woman, who was screaming homophobic slurs at him at the same time.
LGBTQNation found the video on Facebook showing the 52-year-old woman outside the Black Friar pub in Newcastle-under-Lyme. She picked a fight with the owner, Ryan Carrington, the site explained.
“You’re a gay bod and you don’t like women. That’s what your problem is,” the woman drunkenly says while accidently running into the wall. She then turns to call him a "f*cking fat f*ggot."
Rick Wilson warns ‘Donald Trump is not a well man’ and is now ‘speaking in tongues’
President Donald Trump is mentally unwell, a top strategist explained on MSNBC on Thursday.
"A few 24 hours after a sustained presidential performance that even by Donald Trump’s standard qualified as unhinged and unnerving, the world is reeling and offering a collective judgment of omg and wtf. That is a concise summary of this morning’s headlines," anchor John Heilemann reported.
"To help you grasp the full scope of the presidential meltdown, we offer you this," he said, introducing a clip of Trump.
"This string of absurdities might seem mildly funny at times but to Trump’s own former aides, what they witnessed in recent days crossed the threshold from amusing to alarming," he explained.
