Sarah Sanders just held her daily press briefing and the jackals in the media were ready to pounce. They went after Sarah early and often and Sarah kept the wolves at bay. (Video Below)
She is good, even the liberals have to admit that. Well, the honest ones at least.
The first line of questioning was about executive privilege and what the White House lawyers told Steve Bannon he could speak to Hill leaders about.
In case you missed it, White Lawyers claimed, which is their absolute right, executive privilege and Steve Bannon agreed to not speak to Congress about certain topics.
Kind of boring and then MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson tried her best to trap Sarah and make her look bad.
And, of course, the real goal is to make the boss, Donald Trump bad. That is, or it certainly seems, to be the main job of the media these days – do whatever they can to damage President Trump.
Chuck Schumer is behind the scenes whispering to the media pushing his radical agenda. To put it bluntly, Chuck is all in on a government shutdown.
Chuck is happy to grind the federal government to a halt if he can score some cheap political points at Trump’s expense.
He wants DACA, not because he really believes in it, no Chuck knows if he does not get it done the Democrats chances in 2018 go to zero.
Obama promised a solution and came up well short and so now President Trump has to clean up the mess.
Chuck thinks he is still dealing with Obama but he is not and Trump will not cave to Chuck’s petty politics.
Chuck thinks if he shuts down the government Trump will get the blame. That is Chuck’s entire strategy – get Trump in a corner and blame him for whatever happens.
Won’t work, as Sarah just brilliantly explained, in fact, it will backfire.
“I am not sure how it would the President wants a budget deal – the budget deal should not be tied to a political agenda the Democrats are pushing….What we would like to see happen is let’s strike a budget deal by Friday and come back to work and solve DACA and border security.
The number one priority is national security and fully funding our military and I would think the Democrats share this? We need Democrats to do their jobs.”
WE NEED DEMOCRATS TO DO THEIR JOBS!
7 truer words have never been said, don’t you agree? get to work Chuck or shut the heck up.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders pushed back strongly against accusations that the president’s merit-based immigration policy is racist at Tuesday’s press briefing, saying: “By definition a merit-based system is color blind. It is not based on any of that criteria. It is not based on race, it is not based on religion, it is not based on country of origin. It is actually based on the merits of whether or not this person will be contributing to society.”
“No, it is not” about race, she said. “It actually levels the playing field and is the opposite of what you are suggesting.”
QUESTION: Just picking up on that. Does a Good Deal include preferring white immigrants from Norway than black and brown immigrants from Haiti?
SARAH SANDERS” Not at all of, it is the opposite. By definition a merit-based system is color blind. It is not based on any of that criteria. It is not based on race, it is not based on religion, it is not based on country of origin. It is actually based on the merits of whether or not this person will be contributing to society.
So it erases all of those things and makes it a much more fair system.
Instead of picking and choosing, trying to meet different quotas of different countries, it is a merit-based system, and frankly it is a system that most Democrats supported and voted for just years ago.
But now this president is championing it, they are I think showing just absolute signs and definitions of what hypocrisy looks like. The bottom line is we want a deal on DACA. They want a deal on DACA We want a deal on border security. They want a deal on border security. They said they support these things. They’ve also said they support merit-based immigration. I don’t see what is complicated here. We all want the same things.
Democrats need to quit playing politics and start doing what they were elected to do, and that is governing. They need to come to the I believe it was a real deal based on the parameters tha were discussed in the meeting that you saw, and let us try to get something done for the American people.
QUESTION: But he did mention country of origin. The fact of the mater is, the countries that he mentioned, one is very white and the others are very not white. That’s about race, is it not?
SANDERS: No, it is not. The president has laid out what he wants to see in an immigration process. That is a merit-based system. You cannot argue with the priority that he has laid out, and what that looks like and how it levels the playing field and is the opposite of what you’re suggesting.
