Just so everyone is clear on this, in case it was not already blindingly obvious: the official White House position is that reports of sexual predation by known Democrats such as Bill Clinton and Harvey Weinstein are always true. Reports of sexual predation by Donald Trump are always false or, at worst, “locker room talk.”

That was the conclusion of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during Friday's press briefing when asked directly about past accusations of sexual harassment by the president:

Q: Obviously, sexual harassment has been in the news. At least 16 women accused the president of sexually harassing them throughout the course of the campaign. Last week, during a press conference in the Rose Garden, the president called these accusations “fake news.” Is the official White House position that all of these women are lying?

SANDERS: Yeah, we've been clear on that from the beginning, and the president has spoken on it.

We're still awaiting the lawsuits against his accusers for throwing phony charges at him that Trump promised to file after last year's election.
