  3. Sarah Sanders:

    Waters yelled at a cadre of reporters outside the Speaker’s Lobby who were asking her about her comments. She also refused to answer questions about whether her remarks are bad for her party. Waters has faced bipartisan criticism for her weekend comments to a crowd of supporters in Los Angeles. After White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen were pressured to leave restaurants last week amid the backlash over family separations at the border, Waters had urged the crowd to keep up the pressure. If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they're not welcome anymore, anywhere.

  4. Takashi Ito:
