Sanders: WH Condemned the Bombings and Shooting, Media Blamed the President

During the White House Press Briefing on Monday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders stated that while the White House came out and condemned the mail bombings and the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting, “The very first thing the media did was blame the president and make him responsible for these ridiculous acts.”

Sanders said, “[T]he very first thing that the president did was condemn the attacks, both in Pittsburgh and in the pipe bombs. The very first thing the media did was blame the president and make him responsible for these ridiculous acts. That is outrageous that that would be the very first reaction of so many people across this country. … The only person responsible for carrying out either of these heinous acts were the individuals who carried them out. It’s not the president, no more than it was Bernie Sanders’ fault for the individual who shot up a baseball field of Congressional Republicans. You can’t start putting the responsibility of individuals on anybody but the individual who carries out the crime.”
