Sarah Sanders Disputes Impeachment Poll During Fox News Interview 

Former White House press secretary stood up strongly for Trump: 'If anybody can handle a lot of different things on their plate, it is certainly' him, she said

Sarah Sanders, the former White House press secretary, is a great friend and supporter of President Donald Trump.

And even though she’s no longer in the White House, she’s still a master at sidestepping a trap.

That’s precisely what she did, in my opinion, during an appearance on the Fox News network on Thursday morning as a contributor to Fox.

She was asked what she thought about the “shocking” Fox News poll that shows a majority of Americans want President Trump impeached and removed from the White House.

Should President Donald Trump be impeached?

By completing the poll, you agree to receive emails from LifeZette and that you've read and agree to our privacy policy and legal statement.

Hogwash, in my view.

First off, I feel the poll is rigged.

It’s garbage and should not be taken seriously.

Secondly, President Trump also addressed the absurd poll on Thursday morning in a tweet.

Sanders handled the question about the (phony) poll like a pro.

She stood by President Trump — as she always has done.

But what Sanders did best is that she gave no credibility to the ridiculous poll results.

Not one iota. 

“Former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders appeared on Fox News and openly panned Thursday a poll published by the network that showed a majority of respondents wanted President Donald Trump impeached and removed from office,” as The Daily Caller pointed out.

“The latest Fox News polling showing this as far as where respondents stand on the president being impeached and removed from office. It shows 51 percent say that should happen. I want to get your response to that before I let you go,” Fox News host Sandra Smith said to her, the outlet also noted.

“If anybody can handle a lot of different things on their plate, it is certainly Donald Trump,” Sanders replied.

“He has proven that time and time again whether it’s focusing on trade, the defeat of ISIS, rebuilding our military. He is very capable of doing a number of things at one time. I think that impeachment is very bad for our country,” she also said.

“But frankly, it has not been bad so far for Republican fundraising or candidate recruitment. I think those two things mean infinitely more than a poll a year out.”

She also predicted, as the Caller noted, that “at the end of the day [he] will be fully vindicated on the fake Ukraine scandal like he was on the fake Russia scandal.”
