White House fumes at reporters’ focus on Stormy Daniels

From The Hill:

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders ripped reporters on Tuesday for their focus on Stormy Daniels as she fielded multiple questions about why President Trump has not addressed allegations that he had an affair with the adult-film actress.

Reporters peppered Sanders with questions about whether Trump knew about a $130,000 payment from his attorney, Michael Cohen, to Daniels to not talk about the alleged affair and why the president has remained silent on the matter.
Sanders referred questions about the payment to Cohen, who has said he paid out of his own pocket and was not reimbursed and that the president and campaign did not know about the payment.

“I don’t think it’s silent when the president has addressed this, we’ve addressed it extensively, there’s nothing else to add,” Sanders said. “Just because you guys continue to ask the same question over and over and over again doesn’t mean we have to come up with new things to say. We addressed it. We addressed it extensively and there’s nothing new to add to this conversation.”
