The mouthpiece of the administration showed her first signs of human decency Wednesday as she responded to a 13-year-old boy’s request for the government’s plan to combat school shootings.
Benje Choucroun, a student and child reporter from California, asked White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders what the current administration is doing to curtail gun violence and school shootings.
“At my school, we recently had a lockdown drill. One thing that affects my and other students’ mental health is the worry about the fact that we or our friends could be shot at school. Specifically, can you tell me what the administration has done and will do to prevent these senseless tragedies?”
If you listen closely, you may be able to detect two things never seen from Sanders before: empathy and remorse. Of course, she ultimately failed to address Choucroun’s question, but we’ll leave that aside for now.
