White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a force not to reckon with.

The Press Secretary entered enemy territory Wednesday night when she interviewed on CNN with Chris Cuomo.
Sarah was well prepared with facts like always and wasn’t afraid to dish it back to Cuomo with questions of her own.
As the interview began, Cuomo was fixed on what would be his “subject message” for the night: “credibility.” (That’s rich coming from CNN.) He attempted to push Sanders to talk more about her allegedly false claim that President Trump had not dictated a misleading letter about Trump Tower meetings with Russians. But, when Sanders continued to shut down the line of questions because it’s a legal matter, Cuomo complained.
In repose to Cuomo, Sarah said, “I don’t understand having to answer the same question over and over and over again. I’ve answered it, you just didn’t like the answer. There’s a big difference between me answering it and you not liking the answer.” (Video Below)
Sarah let him know that the media gets to ask questions, but they aren’t guaranteed the answers they want.
When Cuomo asked if she wished that the White House had handled the issue differently, she hit back at the media taking them to the woodshed.
Sarah said, “I wish that we spent a lot less time focused on things the American people don’t care about. I wish we spent a lot less time talking about this witch hunt and that we talked about things that impact everyday Americans. I wish we spent a lot more time talking about the economy.”
She continued, “I wish that your network had spent a lot more time today covering a very important piece of legislation that the president signed when he spent a good bit of time this afternoon talking about the importance of Veterans Choice Act that he signed into law today. And your network didn’t even take that. I wish those were the things that we spent time talking about that.”
Cuomo responded weakly, “We didn’t take the whole V.A. — look, we did take Kudlow’s whole symposium. A lot of people did not. You have to make choices in this business. But –“
Sarah said, “And I understand if you guys didn’t want to put the veterans as the choice that you made and I think that’s a sad decision you made.”
Sanders’ line about CNN choosing not to cover the administration’s good work for veterans was something Cuomo would not let go for the rest of the interview, repeatedly calling it a “cheap shot.”
Cuomo soon returned taking swipes at the White House’s “credibility,” and Sanders responded, “I’m very comfortable with my credibility and the fact that I think by sitting here right now and taking questions from you shows the type of person I am, shows my effort to provide information. And frankly, to be in an environment that’s not exactly friendly, that’s not exactly one that I think a lot of people in my position would come and sit in. And I think that speaks a lot to my credibility. And if you want to focus on my credibility, I think that’s something you should certainly look at.”
Cuomo agreed with Sarah, then brought up Spygate, where he declared there was no evidence. “Is it time for the president to stop saying that the FBI spied on him wrongly?” he said. (Video Below)
Sarah said, “Look, the president has got some real concerns. We know that the FBI certainly participated in a number of things that I think, frankly, the American people are concerned about, not just the president, and we think they should be looked at. And that’s what’s taking place.”
Sarah then laid out a list of President Trump’s economic achievements, which Cuomo tried to make seem bad.
Cuomo turned the conversation once again to the administration’s mean treatment of the media and asked if the president’s oppositional stance on the media was “sustainable.”
“Do you think that by saying, ‘We stink,’ that we don’t like veterans, that we are bad for America, the president says we are enemies of America, do you think that that works for you long-term?” he asked.
“What I think is important to remember is that you guys get to ask the questions, but you can’t always complain about the answers,” she said.“You constantly ask the same question over and over and over again and expect different answers and then get mad when the answers don’t change.”
Sarah finished him off: “Unfortunately, you guys quit reporting the news. When I can read a news story and I have no idea what side of the story the reporter is on, that’s a good news story. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a lot of news that looks like that.”
