WH Press Pool Goes Hysterical on Trump's Charge that Dems 'Anti-Jewish'

Sarah Sanders spars with CNN’s Jim Acosta over anti-Semitism allegations

Earlier Friday, Trump told reporters on the White House lawn that "Democrats have become an anti-Israel party". That's according to a person who heard the comment but spoke on condition of anonymity to describe the private remark.

"That's a question, frankly, I think you should ask Democrats what their position is since they're unwilling to call this what it is and call it out by name and take actual action against members who've done things like this", she added, referring to a House-passed anti-hate resolution made necessary in Democratic leaders' minds following Omar's comments.

The press briefing was Sanders' first since January.

Trump's statement came after a resolution condemning anti-Semitism finally came to a vote on March 7, but only after Democrats broadened the resolution with portions condemning other kinds of hate, including "anti-Muslim bigotry".

CNN's chief White House correspondent opened with a question about whether Trump tried to block AT&T's merger with Time Warner.

"Look, I think the real shame in all of this is that Democrats are perfectly capable of coming together and agreeing on the fact they're comfortable ripping babies straight from a mother's womb or killing a baby after birth", said Sanders, deliberately escalating the rhetoric.

She argued that the President didn't feel like what was on the table was enough. "He's going to make a deal if it's a good deal, if it's in the best interest of America, and if he doesn't feel like it's a good deal, it's not worth just signing a piece of paper", Sanders said. I think that it's time to stop giving him a platform.

Acosta asked his question anyway, reminding Sanders that Trump once said there were "very fine people" on both sides of the violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

"Democrats don't hate Jewish people, that's just silly", Acosta said.

At a press briefing Monday, Sarah Sanders was asked if the president has held any talks about offering his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort a pardon.

Leave it to Jim Acosta of CNN to gaslight the White House for asserting that the Democratic Party is now courting blatant anti-Semitism in their ranks.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has asserted that Ilhan Omar's anti-Semitic comments were just a different "use of words".
