President Trump recently tweeted about NY Sen. Kristen Gillibrand, saying the ‘lightweight’ would ‘beg’ him for campaign contributions and was willing to do ‘anything.’ The left has taken this to be a sexist remark. A reporter asked Sarah Sanders what 45 received for his donations, to which she replied ‘access.’ Then Sanders was asked about Trump and corruption. The WH press secretary proceeded to drop a two-word bomb: Hillary Clinton.
From Daily Caller:
Then Sanders dropped the fire:
That’s the reason that we have a broken system. That’s the reason that often special interests control our government more than the people do. That’s one of the reasons that this president ran to be president. It’s one of the top reasons that he won and that he’s sitting in the oval office today and Hillary Clinton is not because he couldn’t be bought and everybody knew that she could because they have seen it time and time again.
Sanders was asked a follow up, if Trump “bought access in a corrupt way?” Sanders responded, using one of Trump’s most famous campaign terms:
He says he knows how the system works. I think it would be disingenuous for anybody not to understand that. But at least this president is being honest about the process and his willingness to actually fix it and drain the swamp.
More on Sanders, via BizPac Review:
In a light-hearted moment during what can often be a contentious time, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders began her last press conference before the Thanksgiving holiday by asking reporters to follow her lead in stating something they were thankful for before asking their questions.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders explains a ground rule for today's White House press conference: Reporters have to say something they're thankful for before asking a question…

“This will be our last press briefing before the Thanksgiving holiday in this room so I want to share a few things that I’m thankful for,” said Sanders. “And I think it would be nice for you guys to do so as well before asking your questions.”
Leading by example, Sanders listed her family, faith, and military members before pivoting to the reporters in the room.
Sanders has arguably the toughest job in the White House next to Trump.
She has to deal with far left reporters daily.
That can’t be easy, considering they’re out to bring the administration down, yet Sanders does her thing like a champ!
