Backfire: Sarah Sanders’ attempt to flood New York Times’ phones with angry Trumpsters fails miserably

Published

on

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Thursday encouraged angry Trump fans to call the New York Times‘ opinion desk in retaliation for the anonymous op-ed it published written by an administration official — but her call for retribution backfired horribly.

“If you want to know who this gutless loser is, call the opinion desk of the failing NYT,” Sanders wrote, adding the phone number for the opinion department.

After the press secretary called for angry Trump supporters to call the opinion desk, Times reporters began tweeting that they had indeed been flooded with calls — but that many of them were supportive.

“After @PressSec directed people to call the @nytimes and ask the opinion section to out the Op-Ed writer, many have called instead to voice their support for the Op-Ed and the NYT news coverage of the Trump administration,” the Times‘ national security correspondent Amy Fiscus tweeted.

She added that one person told Washington correspondent Emily Baum to “print the news, honey!”

Reporter Ken Vogel shared a voicemail another Times fan left him.

“I just wanna thank you a million times over,” a woman calling from California said. “This is the most hopeful I’ve felt about our government in a long, long time.”

Political correspondent Elizabeth Dias tweeted that she received a similar call.

“Well, Sarah Sanders left your number so we could complain, but I support the New York Times,” the transcribed message read. “I’m from Nebraska. Go, New York Times!”

Published

on

President Donald Trump ranted on Twitter while his former communications director testified before the House Judiciary Committee.

Hope Hicks complied with a congressional subpoena and testified behind closed doors to the Democrat-led panel, and the president raged online as word leaked out that a White House lawyer was objecting to many of the questions about her government service.

"The Dems are very unhappy with the Mueller Report, so after almost 3 years, they want a Redo, or Do Over. This is extreme Presidential Harassment," Trump tweeted. "They gave Crooked Hillary’s people complete Immunity, yet now they bring back Hope Hicks."

Soledad O’Brien shames the press for calling Trump’s lies about Central Park 5 a ‘controversial stance’

Published

on

Former CNN host Soledad O'Brien has once again called out media outlets for whitewashing President Donald Trump's blatant lies.

This time, O'Brien took issue with a USA Today headline that mischaracterized Trump's lies about five black men who were falsely accused of raping a woman in New York's Central Park in the 1980s, only to have their convictions vacated in 2002 after DNA evidence exonerated them and another man confessed that he was the man who committed the brutal Central Park rape more than a decade earlier.

Instead of calling out Trump for lying about the case, the paper simply called Trump's continued assertions of their guilt a "controversial stance."

‘Ridiculous!’ House Dems slam Hope Hicks and her White House lawyer for refusing to answer questions

Published

on

Democratic lawmakers are already calling Hope Hicks' congressional testimony "ridiculous."

The former White House communications director complied with a subpoena Wednesday morning to testify before the House Judiciary Committee, but refused to answer any questions about her time serving under President Donald Trump.

A White House lawyer who accompanied Hicks, who left the government in early 2018, repeatedly objected to questions from congressional investigators.

“It’s pretty ridiculous,” says Rep. @KarenBassTweets, saying the White House lawyer inside the Hope Hicks interview is objecting to lots of questions.
