Welcome back to the United States' newest, hottest daily soap opera, White House Press Briefing. Last time, we watched Sarah Huckabee Sanders face off against common sense and decency when she defended John Kelly's comments about how the Civil War could have been avoided if people just compromised better. The episode ended with Sanders flying off in a huff while refusing to answer April Ryan's question: Was slavery bad?
The cliffhanger was almost too much for fans to handle, but luckily, the show came back the next day — as it always does — with even more dramatic twists and turns. The plot thickened in this episode, in which Sanders was forced to answer the question, "What are Donald Trump's flaws?"
No doubt the answer will shock you. White House Press Briefing is proving to be America's favorite soap opera that we also hope comes to a crashing and burning end anyyyy day now. Seriously, any day.
During the last episode of White House Press Briefing, Sarah Huckabee Sanders fumbled through a weird defense of John Kelly and Civil War Confederate general Robert E. Lee by saying that all of our leaders are flawed. So this episode, a journalist decided to ask her what Donald Trump's flaws are. He is a "leader," so according to Sanders, he must be flawed too. Her response?

There are a couple things wrong with this response.
I know this is dumb. But “he has to deal with the media” is not an example of a flaw President Trump has.— Chris Cillizza (@Chris Cillizza)1509565000.0
Oh yeah, there's also this:
@EkbMary @kylegriffin1 She thinks she's funny and above the press. I have never witnessed a WH with this much misplaced arrogance.— hulibow (@hulibow)1509566106.0
Since Sanders wouldn't take the reporter's question seriously, April Ryan tried to fire back again about yesterday, when Sanders refused to answer her question about whether or not the White House would state that slavery was wrong.
