White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders claimed that President Donald Trump was not a racist because he had a TV show “The Apprentice” and because politicians used to ask him for contributions.
Huckabee shared her bizarre logic outside the White House with reporters:
And frankly, I think if… the president were who [Democrats] said he was, why did NBC give him a show for a decade on TV? Why did Chuck Schumer and all of his colleagues come and beg Donald Trump for money?
If they are who they want to portray him as, why did they want to be with him for years and years in various activities, whether it was events and fundraisers and other things.
I think it’s just and outrageous and ludicrous excuse. And they need to get onboard and start actually doing what they were elected to do.
