Twitter slams Sarah Huckabee Sanders after she pivots from Donald Trump’s failure to condemn white supremacy by claiming Democrats rip babies from their mothers and murder them. That’s a lie. A dirty, disgusting smear.
During the White House press briefing, Sanders was asked why Trump hadn’t condemned white supremacy as he attacked Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for anti-Semitic tropes. Instead of taking the high road, she wallowed in the muck, by attacking Democrats as baby murderers. That’s a lie.
When confronted with Trump's failure to condemn white supremacy, Sarah Sanders inexplicably pivoted to inflammatory and dangerous anti-abortion rhetoric, telling reporters that Democrats rip babies from their mothers and kill them.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a vile, disgusting person, who is beyond damaged goods. Donald Trump has not condemned the racist rhetoric from Rep. Steve King (R-IA), but wasted no time going after Rep. Omar. This is the same dude who called white supremacists very fine people.
This was one of Donald Trump’s tweets about Steve King:
Congratulations to @SteveKingIA and his team on running a great campaign. Steve is a strong leader in the House.

Reaction on Twitter:
Reporter: Has the President ever denounced Steve King?
Sanders: He denounced him to me privately. pic.twitter.com/B5gq1bmX2q
