During Thursday’s press briefing at the White House, a rude reporter went off the rails in her line of questioning and needlessly disrespected President Donald Trump.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, having dealt with this sort of thing before, was quick to issue a brutal reality check which the insolent reporter won’t soon forget.
NBC’s Kirsten Welker is the latest White House reporter to start a senseless feud with press secretary Sarah Sanders, asking ridiculous, irrelevant, and aimless questions about the president in an apparent attempt to trash the Trump administration whilst getting Sanders fired up.
North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!

In reference to the tweet, Welker asked, “Isn’t it dangerous for the president to be taunting [Kim Jong-un] on Twitter?”
“I don’t think that it’s taunting to stand up for the people of this country,” Sanders retorted. “I think what’s dangerous is to ignore the continued threats. If the previous administration had done anything and dealt with North Korea, dealt with Iran, instead of sitting by and doing nothing, we wouldn’t have to clean up their mess now.”
On Thursday, Welker was back at it with her antics, this time bringing up the current spat between Trump and Steve Bannon instead of focusing on more important news.
In a continuation of the feud from yesterday, Kirsten Welker of NBC, pushed Sarah on the on-going spat between Trump and Steve Bannon.

“As a candidate, President Trump threatened some 20 lawsuits and followed through with two of them. Why should Steve Bannon and Michael Wolff be concerned?” Welker asked Sanders on Thursday.
“I think that regardless of whether there is a lawsuit or not they should be concerned about peddling fake stories,” replied Sanders. “They should be concerned about putting out information that’s not true. They should be concerned about the fact that we are spending all of our time here focused on talking about THIS instead of things that the people in this country care about.”
“Doesn’t this run the risk of increasing book sales by drawing attention to this?” Welker asked stupidly.
“I think you guys are the ones that are drawing the attention,” scoffed Sanders. “Every question, basically, that I’ve been asked has to do with that. It’s not like I came out here and read excerpts from the book, so I don’t think that I would be responsible for the questions that you ask. In fact, if I tried to do that, I’m sure I would certainly be attacked for trying.”
Unbelievable! This sorry excuse for a journalist actually accused Sarah Sanders of drawing attention to the book when the reporter was the one who wouldn’t quit asking questions about it! This may be a new low, even for NBC.
Indeed, it would seem ridiculous for a White House reporter to be wasting time on such an absurd line of questioning. However, many of these lame reporters have learned that attacking the Trump administration when there is more relevant news to cover earns them notoriety, according to BizPac Review.
These idiotic media trolls can continue to play their games, but Sarah Sanders is not about to let any of them pull one over on her. She’s got lots of experience in dealing with infantile individuals, as she has three toddlers at home.
