CNN Fact-Checks Huckabee Sanders Live On TV While She Claims Trump Is Tough On Russia (VIDEO)

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said during a briefing that Donald Trump has been tough on Russia (he hasn’t been tough on Russia). Sanders told reporters that Trump has “taken a number of actions against Russia and put pressure on them.” She also made the startling claim that Trump has said on several occasions that Russia interfered in our 2016 presidential election, even though he has repeatedly called the investigation a ‘hoax.’ When asked why Trump hasn’t applied sanctions to Russia, Sanders said “that’s not completely accurate,” even though that’s completely accurate. If you’re exhausted with all of the lies that pour out of this alleged woman’s mouth, well, it looks like CNN is tired of it, too. Sanders said, “The President has been extremely tough on Russia,” then as an example, she said, “he helped push through $700 billion to rebuild our military.”

CNN displayed a split screen showing the exact opposite of what Ms. Liar Pants said to be true. Trump has done nothing to punish Russia for meddling in our election. Obama, on the other hand, took action.


Directly after special counsel Robert Mueller indicted 13 Russians and three groups, Trump denied ever calling Russia interference a hoax.

Obama warned Trump against hiring Michael Flynn as national security adviser just after the 2016 election but Trump refused to listen. Flynn had been fired by the Obama administration. After Flynn was forced to resign from the Trump administration, the so-called president called him a ‘wonderful guy’ then lashed out at the ‘fake media.’ Obama applied sanctions to Russia in January of 2017 as punishment for interfering in the 2016 election. Trump failed to impose sanctions against the hostile foreign power.

The Trump administration is ‘fake news.’
