ABC reporter Cecilia Vega made a bit of a reach when she tried to pin the Florida high school massacre on the White House and President Trump.
During her live reporting Vega tied in the Rob Porter issue while speaking to host George Stephanopoulos.
Just a few minutes ago, we did hear from White House Deputy Press Secretary Lindsay Walters who told us that President Trump has been briefed on this shooting in Florida.
We’re told that the White House is actively monitoring the situation and of course, they extend their thoughts and prayers to those who are affected. Strangely enough this is the second alert that this White House has had to send out today.
The second time the President briefed on a shooting, of course earlier, that incident at Fort Meade and they sent out a very statement about that.
We are expecting a briefing in the hour from Press Secretary Sarah Sanders. And of course, as you know, George, this very tragic incident comes as this White House is in turmoil right now over this with this Rob Porter scandal.
So they’ve got a lot on their plate here today.
Stephanopoulos replied, “They have a lot going on there today.”
Of course this isn’t the first time Vega has shown her distaste for the current administration. After President Trump made his remarks about NFL players kneeling during the national anthem, she asked White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, “Does the president believe that there are ‘very fine people’ who kneeled yesterday during those games, or are they all SOB’s?”
