During a White House press conference on Wednesday, press secretary Sarah Sanders repeated defended the president for his rebuke of Christine Ford’s Senate testimony.
She repeatedly claimed that Donald Trump was merely “stating facts” at a Mississippi rally in which he mocked the woman who claims Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in high school.
CNN’s Jim Acosta asked Sanders if she had any problem with Trump’s rhetoric.
“I don’t have any problem stating facts, no,” she said. “I know that’s something you probably do have a problem with, but I don’t.”

Acota defended his journalist integrity while making his own claims about the White House source.
“Actually, Sarah, we do state the facts,” he said. “And I think there have been many occasions when you don’t state the facts, if I may respond.”
