We are having a “disagreement” in my house. Crocodile tears or no?
My house-guest and longtime BFF Kyle Neven called me to the family room where he’s working to watch White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders “crying” on live TV during this morning’s press conference following Sunday’s Las Vegas shooting.

First of all, this isn’t “bursting into tears.” Furthermore, (gawd I’m cynical) I believe she’s faking it. To prove my point, I actually fake-choked-up as she did.
Know who’s crying? The victims of gun violence and their families, not privileged brat Sarah Sanders.
Twitter (except conservative nutjob Twitter) agrees with me.
Sarah Sanders says now is not the time and place to discuss gun control. Here's the rub: Sarah will never care about or discuss gun control. 273 mass shootings in 275 days so unless Sarah plans on squeezing chat in before next daily shooting then likely it won't happen

"Sarah Sanders" is crying because she knows there is no way to spin this to benefit Trump.

Sarah Sanders isn't going to blame the @NRA for the Las Vegas shooting, because she doesn't want to ruin her dad's A+ rating from the NRA

I can’t even listen to Sarah Sanders knowing how much blood money her boss got from the NRA. Click!

Sarah Sanders shows emotion for those massacred in Las Vegas, but zero emotion for the thousands that would die due to lack of health care.

Sarah Sanders won't discuss guns today: "not right time for politics" but it's fine for Trump to talk politics while Puerto Ricans are dying

Sarah Sanders really tried to take a Jab at Blacks in Chicago, somebody refresh my memory of the last time a Black Man shot over 500 people

Sarah Sanders just stated she can't clarify Trump's position on guns beyond that he supports 2nd Amendment. Horrific leadership.

Sarah Sanders says more facts needed before discussing #GunControlNow
Over 50 dead
Due to automatic gunfire
Those are facts

Sarah Sanders. Respectfully, fuck your thoughts & prayers. Stephen Paddock was armed with an assault rifle, not god damn demon horns.
