Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ Hollywood Moment

May 31, 2018

For a reason the TV news networks are still trying to figure out, a young child was called on during Wednesday’s White House press briefing. His question was really good and timely as it was questioning what the administration is doing to keep schools safe from gun violence.

What followed however was pure hokum.  White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders choked up.   Really.

Sanders initially fielded the question quickly, saying, “I think that as a kid, and certainly as a parent, there is nothing that could be more terrifying for a kid to go to school and not feel safe, so I’m sorry that you feel that way.” But by the middle of her response, she was fighting back tears.


For an administration that has done nothing to combat gun violence–and even in fact has allowed guns to be easier for some to attain–it was rich to see Sanders give a Hollywood touch to what the nation knows is a cold-heart and logic-free zone when it comes to curbing the gun industry in America.

All that was missing from Sanders’ comment yesterday was her saying, “Alright, Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my close-up.”

And scene.
