MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson analyzes Sarah Sanders’ ‘personal and bitter’ White House attack on Comey

Published

on

President Donald Trump and his allies are mounting a “coordinated assault” on fired FBI Director James Comey, NBC News chief White House correspondent Hallie Jackson reported Friday.

“This is the end of a week with fast moving headlines surrounding President Trump and his associates, but we are really just getting started,” anchor Ali Velshi noted. “Some of the headlines have the president once again fired up.”

“Moments ago, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders had this to say about Comey and president,” Velshi said, introducing a video clip of the briefing.

“Comey will be forever known as a disgraced partisan hack that broke his sacred trust with the President of the United States, the dedicated agents of the FBI, and the American people he vowed to faithfully serve,” the press secretary claimed. “One of the president’s greatest achievements will go down as firing Director James Comey.”

“What do you take away from this?” Velshi asked the White House reporter.

“Clearly, Sarah Sanders was fired up, she was riled up, she came out ready with talking points prepared absolutely blasting James Comey in scathing and personal terms,” Jackson explained. “And questioned about the appropriateness of doing that from the White House press podium here.”

“This appears to be a coordinated assault against the fired FBI Director, you had the president kicking off the morning calling him a slime ball, you had his allies out on TV saying this is fiction, this book is not real, basically,” she continued. “You had Kellyanne Conway on the North Lawn earlier, talking about how Comey is a simply a disgruntled ex-employee.”

“Clearly, this has turned personal and it has turned bitter,” Jackson concluded.
