Sarah Huckabee Sanders Just Slammed The Washington Post For Reporting On Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting

Following the horrific shooting deaths of 11 people in an anti-Semitic massacre at a Pittsburgh synagogue n Saturday morning, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders slammed the media for its coverage of the killings.

The target of her rage? The Washington Post, which ran a front page story with the words, “Trump, allies set the tone for the violence they denounce, critics say.”

“Is there any tragedy the Washington Post won’t exploit to attack President @realDonaldTrump?” Sanders tweeted Sunday. “The evil act of anti-Semitism in Pittsburg was committed by a coward who hated President Trump because @POTUS is such an unapologetic defender of the Jewish community and state of Israel.”

Questions are now being raised over Trump’s incendiary rhetoric and his failure to distance himself from a portion of his base which embraces far-right ideologies. While Bowers opposed Trump apparently due to the president not taking an anti-Jewish stance, last week’s accused package bomber, Caesar Sayoc, had a van plastered with pro-Trump propaganda. Sayoc addressed the explosives to subjects of Trump’s criticism, including high-profile Democrats and CNN.

Twitter was quick to call Sanders out:
