(CNSNews.com) - White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders turned the tables Friday on a reporter who brought up Hillary Clinton’s comments about past sexual misconduct allegations against President Donald Trump.
“I talked to Hillary Clinton today about the president’s past -- and going back to what Matthew said, she said, look, I worry about everything from his past because it tells you how he behaves in the present and will in the future. What do you say to that as it relates to these allegations against the president?” American Urban Radio Network White House Correspondent April Ryan asked during the White House briefing.
Ryan was referring to an earlier reporter’s question about whether it’s still the White House’s position that the women who have accused Trump of sexual misconduct are lying.
“I think Hillary Clinton probably should have dealt with some of those of her own issues before addressing this president,” Sanders said.
As far as to whether it’s the position of the White House that the women who’ve accused Trump of sexual misconduct are lying, Sanders said, “The president has spoken about this multiple times throughout the campaign and has denied all of those allegations.”
Ryan also asked Sanders, “Is this an uncomfortable conversation about these sexual allegations for this White House be it Al Franken or be it Roy Moore?”
“I think it’s an uncomfortable conversation for the country. I think that this is something that is being discussed pretty widely, and we certainly think that it should be taken very seriously. And it’s one of the reasons I stand up here and answer your questions every day, and will continue to do so and continue to address them,” Sanders replied.
“Obviously, it’s something that should be looked at, and I think it should be looked at widespread not just in the political sphere, but in the business atmosphere and across the board in this country, and it’s something we certainly again take seriously,” she added.
