White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders isn't backing down from her verbal attacks on CNN — less than a day after the network was literally sent a bomb in the mail.
In a Wednesday night tweet, Sanders criticized CNN President Jeff Zucker for choosing "to attack and divide" even though President Trump "asked Americans 'to come together'" amid a wave of "political violence." And when talking with reporters on Thursday morning, Sanders again piled some blame on CNN, CBS News' Mark Knoller reports.
CNN's New York newsroom evacuated Wednesday when it received one of the many packages containing explosive devices. Zucker responded to the attack by saying Trump and Sanders have a "complete lack of understanding ... about the seriousness of their attacks on the media." Sanders hit back at Zucker's criticism, claiming that the "first thing CNN did was to accuse [the president] of being responsible for bomb devices," per a tweet from Knoller.
