If you missed Sarah Huckabee Sanders’s press briefing today, let me give you the tl;dr:
— She provided some nonsensical parable about journalist drinking beers to justify giving tax breaks to the wealthy
— She said that all of Paul Manafort’s crimes occurred before he joined the campaign
— She distanced the campaign from George Papadopoulos, who she insisted was a “volunteer” campaign worker who took one meeting.
— She said that all of these indictments against Trump associates are proof that Hillary Clinton colluded with the Russians.

SARAH HUCKABEE SANDERS: Look, the president has several children. Donald Jr. is just a minor son of many.
6 months from now, Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be telling us Donald Trump was in a volunteer position and had a very limited role within the campaign.— Nunca Trump (@NeverTrumpTexan) October 30, 2017

Papadopoulos is described as "proactive cooperator." Former prosecutor tells me that sometimes means "wore a wire." https://t.co/nQyVCbXy6x— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) October 30, 2017
