White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders slammed Democrats’ recent behavior in an interview on Thursday morning. During an interview with “Fox & Friends,” Sanders responded to Democrats’ continued push to find evidence of collusion or obstruction.
“I think it’s the same one we’ve had all along,” Sanders said. “I think Democrats continue to show day in and day out that they’re nothing but sore losers.”

She claimed that while President Donald Trump has been able to accomplish his goals, the Democratic party focuses on issues that don’t matter:
“At some point they have to realize that they have been beat by President Trump in the 2016 election. They’re getting beat by him day in and day out on issues that actually matter and I think they’re a sad excuse for a political party right now.”
Sanders said that “at some point, [Democrats] have to decide that they want to actually govern and they actually want to change things and make America better and join the president in those efforts.”

As IJR Red reported, Sanders also spoke to reporters at the White House on Tuesday, saying that stretching out the issue was due to Democrats not willing to accept that they were wrong.
“They will never be satisfied. They’re sore losers,” Sanders said. “They lost in 2016. They lost because they tried to convince all of America of something we all knew was untrue: that the president had colluded with Russia.”
When answering another question, the press secretary then encouraged the party to focus on different issues in order to move forward.
“It was a total lie then,” said Sanders. “It is a total lie now, and they continue to lose on this issue. At some point, they have to decide that they’re ready to move on like the rest of America.”
As IJR reported, a new report by the New York Times revealed that some believe that the Mueller report may contain more damaging information than was first believed. On Wednesday, the House Judiciary Committee also voted to subpoena the Justice Department to obtain the unredacted version of the Mueller report.
