Daddy Trump Ain't Happy with Junior

During the off-camera (ridiculous) White House press briefing today, Sarah Huckabee Sanders read a statement by Donald Trump about his son Donald Trump Jr., who's at the center of the latest Russia crisis:

Male reporter: —with Donald Trump Jr., that meeting. Have you had a chance to get the sense of what he feels about this entire story as it continues to unfold? What's your sense on that, and then a follow-up?

Huckabee Sanders: Um, I've a quick, ah, statement that I'll read from the president, ummm. "My son is a high-quality person, and I applaud his transparency." And, beyond that, I'm gonna have to refer everything on this matter to Don Jr.'s counsel and outside counsel and won't have anything else to add beyond that today.
Damn! That is cold as ice!

No one will understand how cutting that statement is better than Don Jr.

And yet, here is the president, ostensibly still standing by his son, even as he has essentially confessed to committing federal crimes and possibly treason.
