Interview with White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders: Media Bias
WASHINGTON (Sinclair Broadcast Group) - The way many in the media treat White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders is disrespectful and despicable. Here is what she told me about her relationship with the press.
BORIS: What would you say the reason is for some of the overarching and really over-the-line heat that you have faced from some folks, sometimes very personal. What is the root, you think, of some of the treatment you receive?
SARAH SANDERS: I think some people, Democrats in particular, at some point they’re going to have to do decide if they love their country more than they hate this president. And I hope that they’ll make the right decision in that process.
SARAH SANDERS: But there’s certainly a lot of anger and a lot of hostility and I think in large part it’s because they’ve got somebody like President Trump, who always beats them at their own game. He always overcomes the things they say are not possible. They said, he’d never run for president. He did. They said, he’d never win. He did. They said, he’d couldn’t get tax cuts done, he did. They said the economy would completely crash. It’s the best it’s been since WWII. Every single time that they try to tell him he can’t do something, or really bad things are going to happen he proves them wrong, and I don’t think that they like that a lot.
BORIS: What is something that they may not know about you that they’re not seeing when you’re sparring with the media or representing the president?
SARAH SANDERS: That maybe I’m a little nicer that sometimes the media wants to make me out to be. I’m a pretty I think happy person. I love life. And I’m a lot nicer than they make me out to be in the press.
Here is the bottom line: Sarah is a good person, a mother of three and a public servant. I hope that all members of the press start treating her with the respect that she deserves.
