White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders came under fire from journalists during Wednesday's press briefing but held her own and fired back, refusing to let the press forget several facts that they would rather ignore.
"The President thinks that we have to focus on securing our election integrity and our election systems which is why he has spent so much time with his administration, making sure that this doesn't happen again," Sanders said in response to questions about Russia meddling in American elections.
"Let's not forget that this didn't happen under President Trump's watch," Sanders pointed out. "This happened under the Obama administration."
Great point, Sarah!
Watch the exchange below:
"We're taking steps, we're making bold reforms to try to fix this and make sure it never happens again," Sanders added. "Because we take it seriously and because we recognize that our election systems are incredibly important and a cornerstone of our democracy."
In another fiery exchange, Sanders hammered the media over their conspiratorial coverage, pointing out that some journalists had recently falsely labeled a member of the intelligence community as a 'Russian spy.'
"Which I think, frankly, shows the outrageousness and just the desire to find the negative in everything that this President does," Sanders said. "Just because someone was simply red-headed they were accused of being some kind of spy for Russia. I think that this has gotten totally out of control. You guys need to take a little bit of a step back, slow down and quit going after the Trump administration on every single thing that takes place."
Watch Sanders in action:
BOOM! Do you think Sarah Sanders is the best White House Press Secretary ever?
