Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead – Sarah Huckabee Sanders Announces White House Departure
|Sarah Huckabee Sanders|
Donald Trump tweeted today that White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will depart the White House at the end of June and return to her home state of Arkansas.
After 3 1/2 years, our wonderful Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be leaving the White House at the end of the month and going home to the Great State of Arkansas….
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 13, 2019
….She is a very special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job! I hope she decides to run for Governor of Arkansas – she would be fantastic. Sarah, thank you for a job well done!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 13, 2019
Sanders has defended Trump’s obvious lies since 2016. Out of frustration, she basically ended the practice of holding White House press briefings.
The reaction from the Twitterverse was exactly what you’d expect:
Sarah Sanders once told the press she hopes people remember her as “transparent and honest.”
Sadly, I don’t think that one’s gonna happen. 👋

Sarah Sanders is ending her tenure as chief gaslighter.
Throughout her time as Press Secretary, she has blatantly lied to the people on behalf of a President who has shown an unprecedented disregard for America’s laws, norms, and basic sense of decency.
History won’t be kind.

White House Still Silent On ‘Domestic Terrorist’ Paul Hasson
|Sarah Huckabee Sanders|
From The New York Times:
A Coast Guard lieutenant and self-described white nationalist who was arrested in Maryland last week was plotting to kill a long list of prominent journalists and Democratic politicians, as well as professors, judges and what he called “leftists in general,” federal prosecutors said in a court filing on Tuesday.
Lt. Christopher Paul Hasson, 49, was arrested Friday on gun and drug charges, but prosecutors said in the filing that those charges were just the “proverbial tip of the iceberg.”
The filing argued that Lieutenant Hasson should be held until he is tried, describing him as a “domestic terrorist” who intended “to murder innocent civilians on a scale rarely seen in this country.”
In the last month, prosecutors said, the lieutenant used his work computer to draw up a list of prominent figures he called “traitors” and wanted to kill, including many well-known anchors and hosts on the CNN and MSNBC news networks and a number of Democratic elected officials. The list included, among others, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Maxine Waters, Senator Richard Blumenthal, whom he referred to as “Sen blumen jew,” and many of the senators running for president in 2020.
While Donald Trump was quick to comment on the charges against Empire star Jussie Smollett, he has yet to comment on Hasson.
Is that because Hasson was plotting against Trump’s political foes? Or because he’s a supporter of the Donald?
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters today that Trump is “typically one of the first” to condemn stories like Hasson’s.
“The president hasn’t at any point has done anything but condemn violence, against journalists or anyone else. In fact, every single time something like this happens, the president is typically one of the first people to condemn the violence and the media is the first people to condemn the president.”
And yet, days after this news broke, he hasn’t.

White House Says It’s ‘Absurd’ That Trump Encourages Violence At His Rallies
In the aftermath of a Trump supporter violently attacking BBC cameraman Ron Skeans at Donald Trump’s El Paso rally this week, White House press secretary raised some eyebrows during an interview with Fox & Friends as she defended the president.
“The idea that the president or anybody on his team or in his administration would encourage violence is absolutely absurd,” Sanders said. “The president stopped, asked and made sure everyone was okay before continuing on with the event. Certainly, we condemn violence in any form against anyone, and that certainly includes the press.”
Sarah Sanders said this morning on “Fox & Friends” that it’s “absolutely absurd” to suggest Trump has encouraged violence at rallies. @KenMeyer91 lists some of the examples that show otherwise. https://t.co/hC1ltMGzAJ
— Oliver Darcy (@oliverdarcy) February 13, 2019
As we all know, on several occasions, Trump has called for his supporters to address detractors with violence.
He has suggested “Maybe he should have been roughed up,” offered to pay the legal fees of supporters who “knock the crap” out of a protester, and even said himself, “I’d like to punch him in the face” regarding another protester.
Mediaite has much more of the Trumpster’s history of violent histrionics here.
Absolutely Absurd that anyone thinks Sarah Sanders isn’t a proper liar. https://t.co/aSiZjgZ56K— Alvin aqua Blanco | Jabari Warrior (@Aqua174) February 13, 2019
Fox News Fact Checks Sarah Huckabee Sanders On Bogus ‘Terrorists Coming Across Mexican Border’ Lie
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders found out today what it’s like to be interviewed by a journalist who’s done his homework.
In an interview with Fox News‘ Chris Wallace, Sanders attempted to push the false claim about terrorists being caught at the southern border on Fox News Sunday, but Chris Wallace just happened to have the facts at hand.
“I know the statistic, I didn’t know if you were going to use it, but I studied up on this,” Wallace said. “Do you know what those 4,000 people come where they are captured? Airports.”
“Not always,” Sanders tried.
“Airports. The state department says there hasn’t been any terrorists found coming across the southern border,” continued Wallace. “But they’re not coming across the southern border, Sarah, they’re coming and they’re being stopped at airports.”
“They’re coming a number of ways, they’re certainly, I’m not disagreeing with you that they’re coming through airports,” lamely offered Sanders.
You have to wonder how different would the state of the nation be if every journalist was prepared with facts when interviewing politicians?

SNL: The Only Sleep Aid Strong Enough For Sarah Huckabee Sanders
|Andy Bryant as “Sarah Huckabee Sanders”|
I meant to post this spoof ad from this weekend’s Saturday Night Live yesterday.
The folks at SNL have been wondering how White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders manages to sleep at night after sharing lie after lie in defense of Donald Trump.
The answer, it seems, is “HuckaPM,” an over the counter sleep-aid that contains “Melatonin, Extra Strength Quaaludes, and what Michael Jackson’s doctor called ‘One and Dones.'”
Props to Aidy Bryant for her excellent physical comedy here.
WH Press Secretary Delivers Podium Rant Then Storms Out Of Press Briefing
|Sarah Huckabee Sanders|
After fielding questions regarding whether Donald Trump is responsible to some degree for inspiring disturbed people to send pipe bombs or shoot up a Pittsburgh synagogue, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders went on a lengthy tirade from the podium today.
Sanders told reporters “it would be nice if every once in a while we could focus on a few of the positive things the President has done instead of just attacking him.”
Sanders also erroneously declared that Trump had won the election “with an overwhelming majority of 63 million people.” As has been pointed out many times, Hillary Clinton beat Trump in the popular vote by millions.
She ended the rant by abruptly closing her notes and leaving the room. Watch below.

Sanders defended Trump saying at one point that “the president is not placing blame,” and yet this morning he tweeted a new attack on the press:
The Fake News is doing everything in their power to blame Republicans, Conservatives and me for the division and hatred that has been going on for so long in our Country. Actually, it is their Fake & Dishonest reporting which is causing problems far greater than they understand!

WH Press Secretary Dodges Question On The Press Being “The Enemy Of The People”
At a White House press briefing, CNN’s Jim Acosta repeatedly asked White House press secretary Sarah Sanders to say the press isn’t the enemy of the American people. She didn’t.
“I’m tired of this. It is not right,” Acosta said afterward, expressing frustration after days of tense anti-press rhetoric. “It is not fair. It is not just. It is un-American to come out here and call the press the enemy of the people. And Ivanka Trump knows that. I don’t know why her father doesn’t.”
Acosta followed up with his thoughts later on CNN:
"I'm tired of this," @Acosta says. "It is not right" to call the press the "enemy of the people." Watch this clip. pic.twitter.com/rcqB5FiSCy— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) August 2, 2018
I walked out of the end of that briefing because I am totally saddened by what just happened. Sarah Sanders was repeatedly given a chance to say the press is not the enemy and she wouldn't do it. Shameful.— Jim Acosta (@Acosta) August 2, 2018
Jim @Acosta is a national treasure. pic.twitter.com/ydrAGHlgZh— John Aravosis (@aravosis) August 3, 2018
.@PressSec just flat out refused to state unequivocally that the press is not the enemy of the American people to @Acosta.
Think about that.
It's the only profession explicitly stated and protected in the Constitution.
It is the fourth estate of the American government.— Brian Sims (@BrianSimsPA) August 2, 2018
Sarah Huckabee Sanders does not answer whether the press is the enemy of the people.
This is your regular reminder that the last Administration to attack the press this way was … the Nixon Administration.
Our framers were wise to protect the press in the Constitution. https://t.co/xwFid2mg7L— Ted Lieu (@tedlieu) August 2, 2018

Sarah Huckabee Sanders Unwelcome At Virginia Restaurant
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked to leave a restaurant in Virginia Friday night when the owner apparently decided he didn’t want to serve her party out of “moral conviction.”
The news was shared in a Facebook post by the waiter from The Red Hen who shared, “I just served Sarah huckabee sanders for a total of 2 minutes before my owner asked her to leave and she complied. Her family left on their own accord, we didn’t actually refuse service or ‘kick her out.'”
Sanders tweeted the news herself on Saturday morning, writing, “Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left.”
“Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so,” Sanders added.
After the waiter’s social media post went viral, hundreds of competing Yelp and Facebook reviews began being posted from both Democrats and Republicans. The reviews ranged from low one stars to top five stars.
According to Newsweek, most reviewers thanked the restaurant for taking a moral stand.
Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left. Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so

Ok, so how about this…We'll support people who are complicit with this morally bankrupt Administration not being denied service, if you support a gay couple who want to get married not being denied service. Deal? https://t.co/I1QondM89d— Ana Navarro (@ananavarro) June 23, 2018
Sarah Huckabee Sanders has fought gay marriage, gays in the miiltary and she agreed with her dad when he called gays "subhuman." She should get used to being denied entry at nice places, like restaurants, democracies and heaven#SarahSanders— Paul Rudnick (@PaulRudnickNY) June 23, 2018
If people think it's OK to deny service to homosexuals because they believe it goes against the word of God, then there's nothing wrong with denying service to Sarah Sanders who bears false witness as @PressSec @WhiteHouse every day.— TheOUTFront (@TheOUTFront) June 23, 2018
New Randy Rainbow Parody – “WTF”
In this new parody, satirist Randy Rainbow riffs on “Omigod You Guys” from the hit Broadway musical, Legally Blonde, taking aim at White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani, Kellyanne Conway and more White House character with “WTF.”
Check those lyrics. Dang, Randy Rainbow is so uber-uber-clever.
This is one of Randy’s best yet. Watch below.
