Said Huckabee Sanders:* FUNNY TOM COTON: Tom Cotton was on national TV today. He assured Chuck Todd that the Republican-controlled Senate Intelligence Committee would be fair in reviewing the Trump-Russia connection. Funny guy, that Cotton. Want another laugh? He trusts Jeff Sessions, too. Waaaaay too early to talk about a special prosector, says Cotton, who liked the idea of special prosecutors back when he ran for Senate agains Mark Pryor.
George, I think it’s safe to say I think we all spend enough time around each other as it is. But, look, this wasn’t a president that was elected to spend his time with reporters and celebrities, this is a president who campaigned on speaking directly to Americans, and that’s what he’s going to spend his time doing.
I think it’s — kind of naive of us to think that we can all walk into a room for a couple of hours and pretend that some of that tension isn’t there. You know, one of the things we say in the south if a Girl Scout egged your house, would you buy cookies from her? I think that this is a pretty similar scenario. There’s no reason for him to go in and sit and pretend like this is going to be just another Saturday night.
