The latest White House spin on Donald Trump's admitted sexual predation is its most ridiculous yet.
Donald Trump’s sexually predatory chickens are coming home to roost, thanks in part to new calls for accountability from his accusers and from Democratic leaders.
At Monday’s White House press briefing, press secretary Sarah Sanders made perhaps the most absurd attempt yet to push back on what we all already know.
Sanders spent a good portion of the briefing trying to bully her way past questions about the trio of accusers who have revived media interest in the allegations of sexual misconduct against Trump. ABC News White House correspondent Cecilia Vega was among more than half a dozen reporters to press Sanders on the subject, asking if she personally believes the allegations to be false.
Sanders conspicuously refused to endorse that view personally, and then absurdly insisted the White House will provide a list of “eyewitnesses” to prove that Trump is not a sexual predator:
In terms of the specific eyewitness accounts, there have been multiple reports, I’d be happy to provide them to you after the briefing.
Vega was referring to a statement the White House put out Monday morning claiming that Trump’s accusers have been “totally disputed in most cases by eyewitness accounts.” That claim is belied by the millions of American eyewitnesses who heard Trump brag about sexually assaulting women with impunity and invading beauty pageant dressing rooms to violate the privacy of women and girls as young as 14 years old.
Yet Sanders still had the temerity to claim eyewitnesses even after Trump’s previous admissions had been brought up by reporters in the same briefing. Trump’s White House is long on absurd spin, but the time for them to skate by without accountability is running shorter every day.
