Today, during the press briefing, Sarah duked it out with an ABC reporter who asked about the President’s tweet early this morning! Senator Gillibrand is a known bought politician and Sarah let everyone know in detail. Later, April tried again and the KNOCK OUT punch was brilliant!
President Trump’s Statement about Gillibrand:
“Lightweight Senator Gillibrand, a total flunky for Chuck Schumer and someone who would come to my office “begging” for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump. Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked- USED!”
Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Chuck Schumer and someone who would come to my office “begging” for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump. Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!

Gillibrand’s response to Trump.
Although Gillibrand tried to politicize his tweet. It didn’t work. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand said “it was a sexist smear.” Which obviously it wasn’t! Then she tweeted this:
“We will not be silenced.”

Even with the help of NBC news, that “Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand blasted President Donald Trump’s Twitter attack on her as a “sexist smear” on Tuesday and said it was meant to silence her and others who have accused him of sexual misconduct, while Democrats demanded an ethics investigation of the president.” During the press briefing Sarah sets the whole lot of the Dem smear tactic team to shame!
Press Secretary Sarah Vs. ABC Reporter Vega (1:45 minute mark. Video below.)
Cecilia Vega of ABC News, for some reason, decided to ask Sarah about it and Sarah delivered a response that shut her down and had her thinking twice! The following is what Cecilia asked and Sarah’s magnificent response! Video Below.
“The President said today that senator Gillibrand would do anything for campaign contributions. Many, many people see this is a sexual innuendo. what is the president suggesting?”
Sarah’s response was thorough and left little doubt that the smear tactic of the left was at best a very lame attempt. This is what Sarah laid out for the media.
“…This is the same sentiment that the President has expressed many times before. When he has exposed the corruption of the entire political system. In fact, he’s used similar terminology many times when talking about politicians of both parties. Both men and women. And certainly, in his campaign to drain the swamp. The system is clearly broken. It’s clearly rigged for special interest and this President is one that can’t be bought. And it’s one of the reason’s that he’s President today.“
Cecilia, who is after all, a reporter, had to rephrase the question a second time.
“So you are saying that this quote ‘senator Gillibrand would do anything’ is a reference to campaign contributions in Washington. The Swamp. This has nothing to do with her being a female. What is he alleging would happen behind closed doors with her?”
Sarah shot back as if Cecilia could not retain the information Sarah had just given to her. Watch it unfold:
“He’s not alleging anything. He’s talking about the way our system functions as it is. That politicians repeatedly beg for money. That’s nothing new. And that comment is, frankly, nothing new, if you look back at past comments that this President has made. He’s used that same terminology many times in reference to men. There’s no way that is sexist at all. This is simply talking about a system that we have that is broken. In which, special interests control our government. And I don’t think there’s probably many people who are controlled by political contributions as the senator that the President referenced.”
April Ryan with CNN tried to chime in and frame it as a sexist statement and suggested that Gillibrand is owed an apology form the President! And this is when Sarah delivered the KO BLOW to the media and the Gillibrand-dem smear tactic that it was a sexist comment! Watch it happen below:
Sarah knocks out reporter, AGAIN! This time it’s April Ryan with this solid blow!
“Only if your mind is in the gutter would you have read it that way.”
The important take away from today’s press briefing.
During the press briefing, Sarah continued with the national security theme and announced that the President signed the National Defense Authorization Act today. And this will build our military and bolster our national security. It would be the first time in seven years, and we will now have a bill enhancing military readiness and the ability to expand and modernize our military and give the tools to our men and women in the armed forces to FIGHT AND WIN. Sarah also announced that the President has called on dems to stop the threat of shutting down the government and fully fund the military.
Are you ready to hear MORE about the economy, the military, national security and immigration and less about the political attacks, and diet cokes, TV and two scoops of ice cream? Leave a comment below and let us know!
