During Tuesday's press briefing, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders fielded a question on the subject of one-time presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's newly released book, “What Happened.”

“Will the president be reading Hillary Clinton's book,” the press secretary was asked. “What does he think about the excerpts that have gotten out so far?”

Sanders took the moment to throw a barb — or two — in Clinton's direction, but not before admitting that she didn't know if President Donald Trump was going to read his 2016 rival's new literary offering.

Claiming that she was “not sure” if Trump would pick up a copy of “What Happened,” Sanders then said that “I think it's clear to all of America” what happened, especially Trump who was “pretty well versed on what happened.”

From there she held no punches, saying, “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 now defined by propping up book sales with false and reckless attacks.”

“I think that that's a sad way for her to continue,” Sanders said, before moving on to another question.
