If you ask Sarah Sanders a dumb question, you’re going to get a dumb answer. That’s what the Washington Post learned after the White House press secretary trolled the paper with an epic comeback when it asked her to comment on WH chief of staff John Kelly’s…face.
“[Kelly] was displeased because he was expecting a full breakfast and there were only pastries and cheese,” Sanders sarcastically replied when asked why Kelly wasn’t smiling at the NATO breakfast where President Trump smacked down NATO members for not paying their fair share of the alliance’s defense budget.
Bizpac Review reports,
President Trump earned raves from millions of Americans for standing up for the U.S. taxpayer at the NATO breakfast. Trump said it’s unfair that the United States pays 70% of NATO’s defense spending while other members shirk their financial responsibilities and mooch off American taxpayers.
In response, the Washington Post and other Trump-hating media chose to do a detailed analysis of John Kelly’s facial expressions during the breakfast (see video above).
Kelly, a retired four-star Marine Corps general, usually has a stern-looking facial expression in his everyday life. It’s unclear why the media thought he should have been gleefully smiling at a breakfast summit where serious matters were discussed.
The Washington Post spoke to several “body-language” experts who claimed that Kelly’s stern facial expressions suggest he’s “displeased” and “irritated” by President Trump’s comments.
But if he were, who cares? Trump is Kelly’s boss — not the other way around. The story was a transparent attempt by the media to sow division within the Trump administration.

Predictably, liberals were triggered by Sarah Sanders’ sarcastic response to a question about her boss’ breakfast facial expressions.
Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff was apparently absent the day they taught sarcasm at school.
I suspect General Kelly knows full well the damage that Trump is doing to the institutions that have kept the peace in Europe for 70 years. Many others in the GOP do as well.
We don’t need them to roll their eyes. We need them to take a stand. Silence is complicity. https://t.co/xWS7B2177S

Humorless CNN analyst Josh Rogin said Sanders’ statement was “not funny” at all.
Trump trashing alliances for no reason is not a joke and not funny. https://t.co/Y0qNidwyKu
