    Today, it was going after Comey and Hillary Clinton. I can understand your normal garden variety opposition to a political rivals polices. But, today Huckleberry Sanders made some very vitriolic comments about Hillary Clinton. Specially, claiming that she ran one of the most negative campaigns ever. Which is a laugh considering she willingly works for the most obnoxious candidate for president in modern history. But then, she called HRC pathetic ( not an exact quote ) and said it was so sad that she is choosing to end her political career the way she is. Presumably, with a best selling book.

    Before that, she accused Comey of breaking the law. But then, tried to pretend that she wasn't calling for the DOJ to investigate it. Yet, even though, that's precisely what she was doing. Or , let's put it this way. She said he "may have" done something illegal by leaking classified information. Then, she said that she'd hope the DOJ would investigate any illegal activity. Then, she said that she certainly would never call for them to do that from the WH press podium. So you be the judge.

    Now admittedly , before Trump , the entire WH press briefing wasn't covered on every major cable news network. So, it might have been easy to miss. But, I'm sure if those kinds of statements had ever been said the media would cover it. What does it say to the 3 million surplus of voters who gave HRC her popular vote margin? What does it say to the rank and file of the FBI, who worked with and respect Comey? What does it say to the those working for Mueller right now, to see Trump engaging in witness intimidation? What does it say for this administrations respect for the average American?

    Today was one of the first times I watched the press briefing in it's entirety. After doing so, I could see why the media considers it "must see" tv. If you didn't witness it in it's entirety for yourself , you probably wouldn't believe it.

    *Yes , I'm well aware of the "Huckeberry Sanders" irony given the topic. But, I'm not the WH press secretary and this thread is hardly a WH briefing room podium.
    Trying to smear Comey because they are afraid to death what he is going to reveal to the grand jury.

    If you notice, her comments were not "off the cuff". They were on note cards in front of her.

    They are desperate at this point, typical corporatist bullshit, if you can't counter, character assasinate.

    Sanders ought to be banned from serving in any public office capacity once this orange tumor is impeached.

    she does this thing where she says something and then says she'd never say or do it. After calling Comey every name in a book. She says that she'd never comment on an ongoing investigation. Even though, Comey is a material witness in that investigation. As well as the subject matter she's responding to. And it would appear that the press is just so worn down by all of it they just let her get away with it.

    She, in the classic sense, is a shrew; and the only reason she gets away with it, is because her daddy has trumps left nut in his mouth.
