When asked about the ProPublica and Wall Street Journal investigations that show some serious fraud going on with the Trump inaugural committee and the Trump hotel in DC (the hotel charged the committee $700,000 for a ballroom for three days), Sarah Huckabee Sanders took the typical Trump line of “this has nothing to do with me.”
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is denying that President Donald Trump had any knowledge of possible malfeasance by his inaugural committee, which is reportedly under investigation for misusing funds.
“That doesn’t have anything to do with the president or the first lady,” Sanders told reporters Thursday evening outside the White House regarding the investigation. “The biggest thing the president did, his engagement in the inauguration, was to come here and raise his hand and take the oath of office. The president was focused on the transition during that time and not on any of the planning for the inauguration.”
The man is simply incapable of ever taking responsibility for anything. Everything he thinks is good that happens within his businesses and other organizations is all to his credit; anything bad that happens is obviously someone else’s fault.
