The war or words between Sarah Sanders and Hillary Clinton is the best ongoing verbal battle in America. Today, Sanders fired another broadside against Hillary, who is doing a round of press for her new book, “What Happened.”
When Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was asked if Trump would read the book, she responded:
"Whether or not he's going to read Hillary Clinton's book, I'm not sure. But I would think that he's pretty well-versed on what happened. And I think it's pretty clear to all of America.
I think it's sad that after Hillary Clinton ran one of the most negative campaigns in history and lost and the last chapter of her public life is going to be now defined by propping up book sales with false and reckless attacks. And I think that that's a sad way for her to continue."
Hillary Clinton, for her part, stopped by “The View” Wednesday morning to hawk the book and take a shot at Sanders, saying she does not pay “attention” to Sanders and the information from the White House is not trustworthy:
“I honestly don’t pay much attention to what she says. I think unfortunately — and I don’t say this with any kind of glee, I'm sad about it, we’re not getting the kind of information from this White House that we should have, whether you agree or disagree, whatever your party affiliation might be."
Sarah Sanders is only the third female White House press secretary in history and the only one who is a mother.
Sanders was quick to respond to reporters at the White House when they asked more questions about the allegations in the book. When asked about a recent Clinton comment declaring Trump is not the president of “all Americans” Sanders did not hold back, saying this is the reason “Hillary Clinton is not the president”:
“That type of misunderstanding of who this president is and frankly a misunderstanding of what he's been doing is exactly one of the reasons that Hillary Clinton is not the president and is instead pushing a book with a lot of false narratives and a lot of I think false accusations and placing blame on a lot of people instead of accepting it herself.”
When asked to clarify what in her book was “false,” Sanders has a savage clapback:
“The biggest one is anyplace within the book where she lays blame for the loss on any one but herself.”
