On Tuesday's Today show, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders set out to tout the "historic" first year of the Trump administration. There have been "record-breaking moments throughout the year," Sanders raved, listing tax cuts, immigration reform, and gains against the Islamic State as successes. She did not mention the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, so Today host Savannah Guthrie did the honors.

"As you well know, the deputy director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe, abruptly resigned yesterday, earlier than expected," Guthrie said. "Was [President Trump] happy to see Andrew McCabe go?" Sanders conceded that Trump had "frustrations" with McCabe, but insisted that the president was focused on "bringing the country together" through his first State of the Union address, which he will deliver Tuesday night.
