EXCERPT:

DOOCY: "Great to have you as well. Jussie Smollett story so troubling. Why did the President put out that tweet?"
HUCKABEE SANDERS: "There were so many people, including a lot of leadership from the Democrat Party, everybody from Nancy Pelosi, Cory Booker and a number of others, mostly those running for president that quickly came out and attacked the President, blamed the President. In fact, as we learned more, it certainly seems like the only person to blame in this case is Smollett. It is another sad example of people so quick to want to attack and come after this president. Much like you saw with the Covington kids and certainly with this case as well. And the President is pushing back."
