Sarah Sanders just tried (and failed) to defend Trump against the n-word allegations, and Stephen Colbert ate her alive.
Recently, Trump denounced former political aide, Omarosa Manigault Newman, after she claimed that she has a tape of him using the n-word.
When defending himself against her allegation, Trump called Omarosa a "crazed-crying lowlife" and a "dog".
In a recent press conference, Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked,
"Can you stand at the podium and guarantee the American people they'll never hear Donald Trump utter the n-word on a recording in any context?"
As we can all assume, Sanders most definitely can NOT guarantee that. Check out what she had to say.
TONIGHT: Omarosa and Trump continue to battle it out! Whoever wins, we lose. #LSSC https://t.co/rUDCfyOXP0— The Late Show (@The Late Show)1534293600.0
When the reporter asks Sanders to repeat the fact that she CAN'T confirm that such a recording won't be recovered, Sarah replies,
"Look, I haven't been in every single room..."
Colbert couldn't handle it. He clapped back hard with,
"Is there a special room where he says it? Please, please, please tell me it's not the Lincoln bedroom."
A smattering of groans, cheers and applause can be heard throughout The Late Show studio.
Colbert goes on to mock another one of Sanders' lines, calling Trump "an equal opportunity insulter" and he rewrites Martin Luther King Jr.'s famous speech to reference the fact that Mark Burnett, The Apprentice producer, apparently has damning tapes of Trump.
"I have a dream that one day the sons of slaves and the sons of slave owners will sit down at the table of brotherhood and Mark Burnett does not record it."
Twitting is joining in to call the Trump administration out.
