(National Sentinel) Record Straight: White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders has been hard at work defending President Donald J. Trump and his administration from incorrect media reports and Democratic politicians who are mischaracterizing his actions.
Over the weekend, Sanders took to Twitter to defend the president and first lady Melania Trump after the Washington Post wrote published an article critical of their visit with victims of the Florida school shooting.
As reported by The Daily Caller:
Trump visited a hospital near Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida Friday night to comfort and meet the families of students injured after a deranged gunman rampaged through the high school with a semi-automatic rifle. Trump and the first lady visited with staff and families and first responders.
The Post article claimed that Trump took more time praising and congratulating the hospital staff and first responders instead of grieving with families of pushing for gun law reform.
The piece said:
President Trump, as he often does while responding to natural disasters, mass shootings or unfolding crises, spent much of his time congratulating the responders instead of memorializing the victims of Wednesday’s school shooting during a visit here Friday.
Trump, in two quick stops at a hospital and sheriff’s office near the school where 17 were killed and scores were injured, praised the doctors, police officers, fire officials and others who responded quickly to the mass shooting in Parkland, casting their response as heroic and record-setting.

Sanders couldn’t let that slide.
She responded in a late-night Monday tweet: “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.”
She also took to Twitter on Monday to launch a nuclear broadside at House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.
In reference to a New York Times article noting that most Americans now approve of the Trump-Republican tax cut and reform law, Sanders tweeted: “Other than Nancy Pelosi and her Democratic allies, who could be against lower taxes, higher wages, and a booming economy?”
Pelosi has been a regular, vocal critic of the tax cut law, labeling the billions given by corporations and businesses to workers in the form of bonuses and wage increases “crumbs.”
