WH Press Secretary’s Lengthy Beer Analogy Ridiculed on Twitter (Video)

Sarah Huckabee Sanders uses beer to explain U.S. tax code

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders opened up Monday’s White House press briefing with an extended analogy about beer — which she said was useful to help explain the debate surrounding tax reform.

Ten reporters go into a bar and get one beer each and spend $100 in total. Sanders said if the cost of the beer tracked the tax code, four reporters would pay nothing and then the other six journalists would pay $1, $3, $7, $12, $18 and $59 respectively.

Everyone is happy until the bartender offers to take $20 off the total bill.

The moral of the story is, basically, that if most of the savings from that $20 didn’t go to the richest journalist, he/she might not come back to the bar and drink with the nine others, thus making it impossible for them to pay their tab. In conclusion, this is Trump’s plan for tax reform.

…Or something like that.

The internet, it seems, was no less befuddled.

And that’s where the fun begins.

The moment quickly became a top trend on Twitter. Watch it above and see what people are saying about it below:
