On the heels of an horrific act by a cowardice man who took his own life after destroying the lives of so many, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders choked back tears as she recounted the fearless acts of first responders who selflessly gave their lives to save others.
“Sadly, multiple police officers both on duty and off-duty were among those killed or injured. But what these people did for each other says far more about who we are as Americans then the cowardly acts of the killer ever could.”
As Sanders began to quote the Gospel of John which says there is “No greater love than to lay down one’s life for a friend,” her voice began to noticeably crack and she could visibly be seen holding back tears.
It became increasingly more difficult for Sanders to speak when she talked about those who sacrificed:
“The memory of those who displayed the ultimate expression of love in the midst of unimaginable act if hate will never fade. Their examples will serve as an eternal reminder that the American spirit can not and will not ever be broken.”
Sanders’ emotional and heartfelt sadness stood in stark contrast to those who had an agenda to push as some victims continued to fight for their lives in local hospitals.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi quickly offered her condolences before writing a letter to Republican Majority Leader Rep. Paul Ryan demanding the GOP commence a Congressional Committee to study gun control violence.
Earlier in the morning on Monday, Hillary Clinton complained about “silencers,” the “NRA” and tweeted:
The crowd fled at the sound of gunshots.
Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer, which the NRA wants to make easier to get.

Her tweet was met with disdain from those on social media who felt her statement was “irrelevant” and “ignorant”.
Not to be outdone by perhaps the worst and most despicable tweet of the day, CBS Executive Hayley Geftman-Gold, a Vice President and Senior Counsel posted on her Facebook page that she was “not even sympathetic” to Las Vegas shooting victims, because “country music fans often are Republican gun toters.”
She went on to say:
“If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs will ever do the right thing. I’m actually not even sympathetic bc country music fans often are Republican gun toters,” Geftman-Gold commented on a friend’s status about Sunday night’s tragedy, referring, it seems, to Congressional lack of action in the wake of Sandy Hook.”
Geftman-Gold was promptly fired by CBS who announced that they condemned her comments.
CBS released the following statement:
“This individual, who was with us for approximately one year, violated the standards of our company and is no longer an employee of CBS. Her views as expressed on social media are deeply unacceptable to all of us at CBS. Our hearts go out to the victims in Las Vegas and their families.”
I for one am grateful that the Trump administration’s press secretary showed appropriate emotions following the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history rather than politicizing the tragedy as the Left immediately attempted to do.
