White House Press Secretary Just Had A Freudian Slip While Defending Trump’s NFL Comments
Today, White House Press Secretary Huckabee Sanders took to the podium and spewed out Trump’s latest batch of misinformation, half-truths, and outright lies.
Not surprisingly, she was asked about Trump’s ongoing racist, one-man war against the black NFL athletes who have been kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality.
When asked to clarify her inane comments on the matter, Huckabee Sanders cut off the reporter and said she didn’t have to clarify because the issue is “pretty black and white.”
While the Trump administration has repeatedly, inauthentically maintained that the NFL controversy isn’t related to race, a flustered Huckabee seemed to have a bit of a Freudian slip.
The issue is black and white, in that it’s black athletes fighting back against a white supremacist president.
.@PressSec said the issue the administration's stance on respect for the flag/anthem is "pretty black and white."

Trump’s entire anti-NFL campaign is a blatant effort to use a racist distraction to draw attention away from the fact that his presidency is already an unprecedented, abject failure.
He’s proven himself fundamentally incapable of accomplishing even the smallest presidential tasks and has reverted to simply riling up his bigoted base.
