Sarah Huckabee Sanders very calmly and very demurely and very directly threatened to shut down the briefing Wednesday if all the press wanted to talk about was President Trump’s decision to ban transgenders from the military.
Of course, this decision affects about .00001 percent of the population. That is, the number of people who, coincidentally, want to serve in the military and also want to change their sex. But for the Washington elites, this is a question of immense concern, a do or die proposition, and an attempt by Trump to tear up the Constitution and use it for drywall in one of his buildings.
To which Sanders Huckabee responded:
Guys, I really don’t have anything else to add on that topic. As I do, I’ll keep you posted. But if those are the only questions we have, I’m gonna call it a day.
