Simply put: Sanders has no idea what she’s doing because she doesn’t know what’s going on with the White House.
During Monday’s off-camera briefing, The Post’s Philip Rucker asked about other Trump campaign meetings with Russians, including the newly discovered one in which Donald Trump Jr., first son-in-law Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort reportedly sought the goods on Hillary Clinton.
“I am not sure,” she said. “I’ll check and get back to you.”
Really? She was ill-prepared for that question?
A correspondent from Newsmax, John Gizzi, asked if Trump raised the subject of Russia’s human rights abuses during their meeting. “I’m not sure,” she said. “I’ll have to ask.”
Another reporter asked if Trump trusts Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Sanders said, “I haven’t asked.”
Sanders was repeatedly asked about all things Russian and the apparent failure of the Senate’s health care bill. In all instances, she either didn’t know or would need to get back to whomever.
Like Spicer before her, it’s highly unlikely that she’ll ever get back to anyone. It’s also unlikely that she’ll get dignity back. One almost feels sorry for Huckabee Sanders, until one remembers that she had every opportunity to learn what she was signing up for well before she first took the podium. Perhaps she just didn’t care to learn.
