White House Destroys WaPo Reporters Over Misleading Report On President Trump's Florida Visit
Earlier this morning, Washington Posts White House Bureau chief posted a tweet praising a Trump hit piece claiming the president spent more time focusing on patting the first responders on the backs than comforting victims.
"Very nice @jdawsey1 dispatch on Trump at Florida hospital — not as comforter in chief, but as congratulator in chief. Keep reading to the end," wrote Rucker.
This prompted a response from White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders:
"Actually @PhilipRucker it’s not very nice, but it is very misleading. @POTUS spent private time w/ victims of the shooting & their families. Out of respect for them he didn’t bring media into their hospital rooms but don’t let the truth get in the way of your anti-Trump narrative"
And even a response from the Director of Social Media and Assistant to the President Dan Scavino, Jr.:
“That’s because at the hospital when President Trump goes from one room to the next focusing on spending time consoling shooting victims and their families — it’s private with no pool sprays. The stories and moments are very powerful and heartbreaking.”
