During an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Tuesday evening White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders doubled down on the White House’s support for the Covington Catholic student by slamming the media for its coverage of the incident.

“I think what happened with BuzzFeed is a great lesson for the media,” she said. “Quit trying to be first and start trying to be right.

I’ve never seen people so happy to destroy a kid’s life.”
