Sarah Huckabee Sanders Responds to Bomb Crisis by Criticizing CNN

Sarah Huckabee Sanders Responds to Bomb Crisis by Criticizing CNN

President Jeff Zucker issued a statement condemning White House officials after an explosive device was sent to the network's New York City headquarters. He is promoting a book about his time in the White House and his relationship with President Trump. "Thus far, they have shown no comprehension of that", Zucker said as the network's NY bureau was evacuated for five hours on Wednesday following the discovery of an explosive device sent there.

A package containing a pipe bomb was found in the mail room of CNN's NY bureau in the Time Warner Center on Wednesday.

Anthony Scaramucci, who briefly served as the White House communications director, has given an unflattering portrayal of his former boss, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, who sacked him last summer. But he has not worked out that way, often fueling Trump's racist impulses, including when he advised the president to reject immigration deals to preserve DACA, and at other times getting into ugly feuds, including with a Florida congresswoman who stood up for a Gold Star widow Trump had disrespected.

Suspicious packages also were mailed to the offices of Rep. Maxine Waters, a California Democrat who is a frequent target of the president's ridicule. "America should unite against all political violence", Sanders tweeted in response to Zucker's statement.

When CNN White House reporter Jim Acosta criticized Mr. Trump for failing to take "responsibility for his own rhetoric", the president's eldest son, Donald Jr., called out the journalist for hypocrisy.

"A very big part of the Anger we see today in our society is caused by the purposely false and inaccurate reporting of the Mainstream Media that I refer to as Fake News", he said Thursday on Twitter. "Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!"




Later, Sanders compared the incident to a supporter of Sen.

Sanders reinforced Trump's statement Thursday during an interview on Fox News' "Fox & Friends", saying, "Certainly the media has a role to play in this process".

"Yesterday, the very first thing that the president did was come out and condemn the violence".

"Your inflammatory rhetoric, insults, lies, & encouragement of physical violence are disgraceful", Brennan added.

The relationship between CNN and the Trump administration has been particularly contentious.
