As another week continues on in the White House, Donald Trump has been forced to push back against several scandals, while creating new drama with his controversial behavior on social media. In an attempt to defend the president, Sarah Huckabee Sanders faced an onslaught of questions from reporters.

Sanders on Trump

As has been the case for the majority of his presidency, Donald Trump has recently made comments and put policy proposals on the table that have resulted in criticism.

On the issue of immigration, Trump has lashed out against the Democratic Party, going as far as declaring that "DACA is dead," while announcing his plan to send military troops to guard the border from illegal immigrants. In addition, Trump has been extra active on Twitter, sparking a feud with Amazon and the post office, while giving his thoughts about the recent shooting at the YouTube headquarters in California. Despite this, the Russian investigation continues to dominate the headlines.

After quoting Martin Luther King on the 50th anniversary of his assassination and then allowing Homeland Security Secretary Kristjen Nielsen Sanders to address the president's plan on his border wall, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders did her best to defend Donald Trump during the April 4 press briefing.

After being pressed on the news that Trump is not currently the top target in the Russian investigation, Sanders replied, "We know what we did and what we didn't do, so none of this comes as much of a surprise," she said.

Sarah Sanders was then asked if Donald Trump would still testify under oath if called to do so, though she did her best to dance around the question.

"We're continuing to be fully cooperative with the office of the special counsel," Sanders answered. Sanders then pushed back against allegations that the president has not been hard enough on Russia, to which she claimed, "We've been tough on Russia...but absolutely, other countries should step up."

Sanders' MLK criticism

As Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended Donald Trump at all costs during her press briefing, those who oppose the president made sure to chime in.

"I've never really noticed it, but (SHS) kind of looks like she did a Snapchat face swap with a version of herself with a much larger head," one tweet read.

"Sarah Huckabee Sanders and this racist, corrupt administration got the the absolute gall to open up with quoting MLK and then Kirstjen Nielson goes directly into spewing racist border wall 'catch and release' rhetoric," a Twitter user wrote.

"(SHS) just quoted MLK on the 50th anniversary of his death to kick off a press conference about militarizing the border *head explodes*," a tweet went on to read. "If I was a journalist in the press conference with (SHS) I'd end up screaming. Her blaming Democrats for DACA. Had Trump not ended it, there wouldn't be anything to negotiate," yet another tweet noted.

"(SHS) lied about DACA and says she's moving on.

No pushback on this lie yet. Three journalists have since asked other questions. SMH," a social media user wrote. "Sarah Huckabee Sanders always looks like she just smelled something stinky during these White House briefings it's probably because of the bullsh*t coming out of her mouth," another tweet stated.
