    character assisination and vitriolic comments during WH briefings.

    please anyone, if you can recall a time when the WH was used this way before Trump give examples.

    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.

    HRC and Comey are criminals.

    Expect to see an investigation and possibly charges.

    This is called news ..... not character assassination.

    The troll administration strikes again. Fuck that, most people aren't buying it so keep pandering to the morons. The RNC was the most negative, doom and gloom nonsense you can get. The DNC was positive about how we can overcome anything.

    Wow, how do these POS say these things with a straight face? All Trump did was name call and attack,and he's still doing it after he wins.

    I hope karma strikes every one of the assholes that is working for that administration

    Sanders is too brainwashed to tell the truth. She deflects and defends. Simple as that.

    Your post is a little wordy for just showing up to make a fool off yourself. You could have done it with much less effort.
