Washington Post Criticized Trump’s Visit To Injured Children – Sarah Sanders Lights Them On FIRE

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders savaged the Washington Post for criticizing President Trump’s visit with Florida shooting victims.

Trump visited a hospital near Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida Friday night to comfort and meet the families of students injured after a deranged gunman rampaged through the high school with a semi-automatic rifle. Trump and the first lady visited with staff and families and first responders.

The Washington Post wrote a critical piece about the visit titled “In brief Florida Stop, Trump focuses on praising first responders.” The piece takes aim at Trump for praising and congratulating the hospital staff and first responders instead of grieving with families of pushing for gun law reform.

The piece said:

President Trump, as he often does while responding to natural disasters, mass shootings or unfolding crises, spent much of his time congratulating the responders instead of memorializing the victims of Wednesday’s school shooting during a visit here Friday.

Trump, in two quick stops at a hospital and sheriff’s office near the school where 17 were killed and scores were injured, praised the doctors, police officers, fire officials and others who responded quickly to the mass shooting in Parkland, casting their response as heroic and record-setting.

Washington Post reporter Phillip Rucker tweeted the story:

Sarah Sanders hit back hard against the narrative, saying:

Actually @PhilipRucker it’s not very nice, but it is very misleading. @POTUS spent private time w/ victims of the shooting & their families. Out of respect for them he didn’t bring media into their hospital rooms but don’t let the truth get in the way of your anti-Trump narrative

Trump said of the visit:

Our entire Nation, w/one heavy heart, continues to pray for the victims & their families in Parkland, FL. To teachers, law enforcement, first responders & medical professionals who responded so bravely in the face of danger: We THANK YOU for your courage!

    It doesn’t matter what President Trump does or doesn’t do there is constant criticism from the Lying News Media! Increased employment, lowering of taxes, economy booming , major companies giving
    a bonus to employees. President gets no credit from the Far Left! Just criticism all the time!

    It is just unbelievable how the liberals have disrespected our President! I am just at a loss! What are they trying to prove? This man has done more in just over a year than our last president(?) did in eight years. They blame him for everything, even digging up dirt from 2006! They blame him for this latest act of insanity! How is he to blame for what this EVIL animal did? It is absolutely ignorant!!

    I thank God every day for our President and First Lady. I also thank God every day that I do not (and never will) plug into the hatred and disrespect the left exhibits toward the office of the most powerful man in the world. How miserable the haters must be! President Trump’s followers look at this with eyes wide open to a president who truly cares enough not to put the grieving families in front of the vultures in the press. He knows full well not meeting publicly with families will draw the left wing media’s ire, but he cares more for the families than how he looks to the media.

    Washington Post and Phil Rucker ? Who cares, not I.
    Love will overcome hate and haters.
    Since mental health has been an important issue in many families, including mine, I pray Phil Rucker and others that are full of anger seek professional help to assist them in why they feel the way they do and the steps to deal with their hate.
    Sincerely,
    BD

    I am so sick and tired from this ugly media that keeps attacking our President , When is it going to stop , Honestly i believe they are anti American and anti humanity , This liberal narrative attacking the president on everything he does is getting too much , Every sick bum wants to take a shot at Mr Trump is a sore loser , I am from the Middle East originally but this country of mine and my family is the greatest country on this planet , May God bless our country and our President .
