In Tuesday’s Whitehouse press briefing Sarah Sanders lied once again from the podium about increased jobs for African American’s under the Trump administration vs. the Obama administration. She also had enough sense not confirm or deny Trump’s use of the “N” word.
The back and forth between the press secretary and reporters was in response to Trump calling Omarosa a “dog” in a tweet and his constant racist comments towards minorities.
She later took to twitter to give a “sorry but not sorry” apology.
Correction from today’s briefing: Jobs numbers for Pres Trump and Pres Obama were correct, but the time frame for Pres Obama wasn’t. I’m sorry for the mistake, but no apologies for the 700,000 jobs for African Americans created under President Trump https://t.co/EXGvbliwlS

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 18.4 million African-Americans working when Obama left office in January 2017. That’s 2.9 million more than when he was sworn in eight years earlier.
