One of the main avenues of attack the liberal media have repeatedly used against President-elect Donald Trump since the first day of his campaign has been that he is a racist supported by white supremacists.
CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer traveled down that road for the umpteenth time Tuesday while interviewing Republican National Committee spokesman Sean Spicer, but Spicer would have none of it, according to Mediaite.
Blitzer began by asking if Trump disavowed the stated support of white supremacists and neo-Nazi groups, to which Spicer replied that Trump had already disavowed such groups and was focused on the task at hand, preparing to begin his presidency.
But Blitzer pressed on, suggesting that Trump release a specific statement or speech denouncing and repudiating the aforementioned groups, again compelling Spicer to note that Trump had already made it clear what he thought of such groups, saying, “At some point, you’ve gotta take his position and move on!”
But Blitzer would not move on, instead asking Spicer why he thought those kinds of individuals liked and supported Trump.
“I don’t know!” Spicer said. “That’s really not my focus, figuring out why certain groups support him!”
Spicer proceeded to point out how “preposterous” the repeated questions about the same subject were, growing visibly irritated at Blitzer’s insistence on revisiting the same questions that had already been asked and answered ad nauseum.
However, Blitzer refused to accept Spicer’s response and continued to demand a repudiation by Trump of neo-Nazis and white supremacists, which resulted in Spicer nearly losing his cool as he blew up on Blitzer with righteous indignation.
“Because I think it’s been asked and answered, Wolf. You’ve asked me eight times, the same question! I’ve told you what his position is,” said Spicer. “That’s not his focus! His focus is making this country better for all Americans, creating a better country, creating a better education system for all Americans, rebuilding our inner cities. That’s what his focus is.”
“So I get that you guys all want to ask the same question over and over again and make him denounce it eight ways to Sunday, but it’s not what he wants to talk about!” he continued.
“It’s the news media, over and over and over again, asking the same question. But I don’t know how many times he has to answer that question, and you figuring out the way and the fashion that he should do it next,” he added. “I mean, if he gets out and gives he a speech should he then write it in the sky with an airplane? At what point is it enough?”
Spicer put the issue to rest — for now — by saying Trump had been very clear on the matter and it was time for everyone to just move on.
We couldn’t agree more with that sentiment.

All we can say about the way Spicer handled it is “good job.” We hope the media took note and will refrain from dragging this dead carcass out to beat it further, but we won’t hold our breath on that.
