After be asked again about why Donald Trump has refused to personally acknowledge the affair rumors with Stormy Daniels, Sarah Huckabee Sanders continued her defense.

Instant reaction

Within minutes of the press briefing, Sarah Huckabee Sanders faced backlash. "After seeing her press conferences, one can only conclude that (SHS) has never actually met the president or spoken to him, and seems uninterested in ever doing so.

An understandable sentiment perhaps, but it makes for an awkward half hour," one tweet read.

"When Stormy Daniels comes through with more straightforward credible answers in her interview than (SHS) stuttering and stammering in a press conference is not a good sign for this President," a Twitter user wrote.

"Why is (SHS) dressed like Wednesday Addams! All she needs are braids. She also looks like a puritan!" another tweet added.

"(SHS) is that obnoxious loud girl at parties that goes too hard and ends up fighting with everybody," a social media user added.

"Today’s Press Briefing was an abomination. The press deserves better, so do the American people. And frankly, so does the Trump administration. (SHS) is doing the president no favors in how she conducts these 'daily' events," a follow-up tweet read.
