Instead of commenting on hmmm… we don’t know… the Russia collusion scandal, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders opted to start Monday’s White House press briefing with an extended analogy about beer.
Yes, it was just as dumb as it sounds.
While trying to explain Donald Trump‘s supposed plan for tax reform, Sanders told a little story about ten reporters going into a bar and who pays what for their drinks.
You can watch the cringe-worthy tale (below):
And it truly didn’t make matters any better that Sanders didn’t answer questions about Paul Manafort and Rick Gates‘ indictments with any clarity.

Sarah Sanders’ stupid tax analogy is stupid because in reality the poorest would be getting more beer.

Press: “what’s WH response 2 Paul Manafort & #RickGates indictments?”
Sarah Sanders: 🎶 “99 bottles of beer on the wall”
Sarah Sanders is talking about reporters going out for beer and having to pay taxes.

Sarah Sanders opens up press conference with drinking joke, looks up expectantly for laugh. Someone in press pool coughs. That happened.

If 10 reporters go to a bar, and…and two of them want whiskey, but the other six…Hillary colluded with Russia

Sarah Huckabee Sanders: “So two Trump officials walk into a bar and one orders a Moscow mule and the other orders a White Russian……”

Dear Sarah Huckabee Sanders, if the 10th reporter doesn’t show up to pay the bill, he goes to jail for tax evasion.
You’re story is moronic
