Sarah Huckabee Sanders shut down CNN’s Jeff Zucker with one word
Reports have come out of more suspicious packages being sent to former politicians and members of the media.
But instead of trying to get to the bottom of who sent the packages, the media chose to attack President Trump.
And Sarah Huckabee Sanders shut down CNN with this one word.
CNN President Jeff Zucker issued a statement attacking Trump and Sanders after reports came out that a suspicious package was sent to CNN headquarters.
“There is a total and complete lack of understanding at the White House about the seriousness of their continued attacks on the media. The President, and especially the White House Press Secretary, should understand their words matter. Thus far, they have shown no comprehension of that.”
CNN and other leftwing talking heads have been quick to lay blame at the feet of Donald Trump.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders went on Fox and Friends and called CNN’s response “disgraceful.”
.@realDonaldTrump asked Americans “to come together and send one very clear, strong, unmistakable message that acts or threats of political violence of any kind have no place in the USA” Yet you chose to attack and divide. America should unite against all political violence. https://t.co/Dlo3xwHyKi

Then, Donald Trump, Jr. pointed out CNN’s hypocrisy.
Trump, Jr. called out CNN’s Jim Acosta for attacking his family and ignoring the constant death threats the Trumps receive.
Jim, did you or your colleagues take any responsibility for your rhetoric in constantly calling my family Racists and Nazis for 2 years when my wife actually opened an exploding envelope of white powder intended for me? What about when it happend to my brother? https://t.co/TpMTk17x9W

Meanwhile, The New York Times published a short story by Zoë Sharp that fantasized about the assassination of President Trump on the very same day these packages showed up on doorsteps.
The media believes they can attack President Trump 24/7 and get a free pass.
But when Trump calls the media out on their clear bias, he becomes culpable for sending suspicious packages?
The media will seize on any chance it can get to spin a story into an anti-Trump attack.
The investigation into these suspicious packages is still ongoing.
We will keep you up-to-date on this story.
