Sarah Huckabee Sanders Seems To Think JFK And Kennedy Are Different Presidents

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders might want to have a chat with whoever writes her lists of presidents.

It was probably a slip of the tongue, but Twitter was swift and unforgiving in its skewering ofSarah Huckabee Sandersafter the White House press secretary referred to “JFK” and “Kennedy” as two different presidentsduring a Tuesday press briefing.

Speaking to reporters about White House Chief of Staff John Kelly’s controversial comments about Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, Sanders, reading from notes, contended that “all of our leaders have flaws.”

“Washington, Jefferson, JFK, Roosevelt, Kennedy. That doesn’t diminish their contributions to our country. It certainly can’t erase them from our history. And Gen. Kelly was simply making the point that just because history isn’t perfect doesn’t mean it’s not our history,” she said.

Her flub did not go unnoticed.

In an interview with Fox News on Monday, Kelly had said that a “lack of ability to compromise” had led to the Civil War.

The White House chief of staff went on to describe Lee, who’d fought to protect Southern states’ rights to own slaves, as “honorable.”

CNN White House reporter Jeremy Diamond noted that Sanders’ JFK/Kennedy mistake was perhaps theleastthing wrong with her defense of Kelly’s statements.
