Sanders was speaking with reporters during the daily White House press briefing when she was asked to comment on Senator Jeff Flake's freaky address on the Senate floor, where he claimed the President was giving comfort to "dictators" around the world.

"This is paired with a statement from Senator John McCain, saying that the president should stop attacking the press".

Flake purposely made his floor speech today ahead of Trump releasing his "fake news" awards this evening.

"I think Democrats don't want to see this president be successful", Sanders said.

While Republicans control both chambers of Congress as well as the presidency, Sanders noted that the 60-vote threshold to overcome a filibuster in the Senate means that the responsibility ultimately lies on the minority party.

Gujarat became the second state to ban the film after the Rajasthan government led by chief minister Vasundhara Raje Scindia . It stars Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmavati , Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji.

The communist regime in Cuba has denied launching the attacks, putting Flake squarely in defense of the regime's lies as he criticizes President Trump for oppressing American media.

"He's not criticizing the president because he's against oppression", she added. "He's criticizing the president because he has bad poll numbers and he is, I think, looking for some attention", she said.

"Look, I wasn't in that room so I can go only off of what the individuals who were", Sanders answered. "I think it's unfortunate".

While taking question from reporters on Wednesday afternoon, it was only a matter of time before Sarah Huckabee Sanders made remarks that caused controversy. "To act as if we are anything but open to that back and forth exchange is utterly ridiculous". He spoke on the Senate floor Wednesday and attacked Trump for having "pernicious fantasies about rigged elections and voter fraud, which are as destructive as they are inaccurate".
