He wants the best for EVERYONE

These people.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was tasked Monday with explaining President Trump’s sympathetic comments about alleged spouse abuser Rob Porter. It went about as well as might be expected.

Sanders beat back one question after another about why Trump has suggested that Porter might be innocent but has said nothing about the domestic violence of which Porter stands accused. Then she was asked why Trump opted to go even a step further and wish Porter success in his career — a comment that seemed odd given that this is a man accused of horrible things.

Behold the spin:

“I think the president of the United States hopes that all Americans can be successful in whatever they do,” Sanders said. “And if they’ve had any issues in the past — I’m not confirming or denying one way or the other — but if they do, the president wants success for all Americans.”

She concluded: “He was elected to serve all Americans, and he hopes for the best for all American citizens across the country.”

Men who beat up women included! Would you want him not to wish those men well? Would you want him to wish injury and torment and death on them? What kind of person are you? Are you some sort of sadistic perverted monster???

Porter has been convicted of no crimes, of course, but wishing someone well inherently suggests that you think they are worthy of good things in the future. Trump didn’t say, “I wish Rob Porter well if he didn’t actually beat his wives.” Instead, the president just came out and said he hoped Porter would find success. “Well, we wish him well,” Trump said Friday. “He worked very hard. I found out about it recently, and I was surprised by it. But we certainly wish him well.” Trump added of Porter that “hopefully he will have a great career ahead of him.”

There’s been no reporting that I’ve seen that he wished Porter’s ex-wives well. Did he ever express good wishes toward the women who said he assaulted them? Has he expressed good wishes toward any Democrats lately? How about Don Lemon or Rachel Maddow? James Comey? Robert Mueller?
