Sanders calls out Amazon after 2-year-old orders Batman toy using Echo

Flake took to the Senate floor to rip into Trump for his repeated attacks on the media as "fake news", saying Trump pushes "pernicious fantasies".

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders has commented on US President Donald Trump's controversial remark, saying, "One of the reasons that he won and is sitting in the Oval Office today is because he isn't a scripted robot". While Donald Trump has made a habit out of lashing out at the press during interviews, speeches, and on spacial media, his own administration has often followed in his footsteps. "He went to Cuba a few weeks ago and served as a mouthpiece for the oppressive Cuban government", Sanders said Wednesday during the White House press briefing.

The White House press secretary was having none of Flake's attempts to get "some attention", and suggested his attack was motivated by his low poll numbers.

"He is not criticizing the president because he is against oppression, he is criticizing the president because he has awful poll numbers and he is, I think, looking for some attention". "He's criticizing the President because he has awful poll numbers".

The communist regime in Cuba has denied launching the attacks, putting Flake squarely in defense of the regime's lies as he criticizes President Trump for oppressing American media.

Sanders continued, "And he is I think looking for some attention".

"Give your husbands, your boyfriends her contact information", Sanders said, with Ivanka Trump adding, "We're going to have to send some people your way... my secret skill, matchmaking".

Flake visited Cuba late past year and argued he saw no evidence US diplomats in Havana were attacked by the communist Castro government. I'm standing right here taking questions.
