The White House is pretending that everything is fine, as Donald Trump released a statement praising his son for being a “high-quality person,” but never denying the allegation that Donald Trump Jr. colluded with Russia.
Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders read Trump’s statement to the same White House reporters that he is too scared to face, “My son is a high-quality person and I applaud his transparency.”
There is no denial in that statement that his son colluded with Russia. It is more Trump double talk about quality people and transparency. The only reason that Trump Jr. released his emails was that The New York Times was about to break a major story.
The White House is trying to ignore away the Russia scandal. They have no defense for what Donald Trump Jr. and the Trump campaign did, so they are going to pretend like it never happened. The White House is completely delusional, and one of the main reasons that they could end up going down for the Russia scandal is that they refuse to be honest, or come up with any strategic defense.
As his presidency burns, Trump is talking about high-quality people. The response from the White House is crazy as this president is completely detached from reality.
