Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that it’s “disgusting and absurd” to suggest that anyone inside the White House would support slavery. You know it’s a really bad day when the press secretary is denying there are pro-slavery officials in the White House.
Um, that comes after John Kelly said slave-owner Gen. Robert E. Lee was an “honorable man” and that if there had been the ability to compromise, the Civil War would not have happened.

Didn’t Huckabee Sanders compare Gen. Lee to Presidents John F. Kennedy, Thomas Jefferson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and others as having “flaws?” Lee was a traitor. Period. Further, he told his overseers to lash his slaves and then wash their backs in brine.
