Outgoing White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is under attack by the left, now most recently being called a “liar” who “diminished the office” by ABC News’ “The View.”
Sanders announced on Thursday that she would be stepping down from her role in the Trump administration by the end of the month. Co-hosts of “The View” Sunny Hostin and (of, course) Joy Behar celebrated the news by bashing Sanders’ character.
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg opened the segment by commenting on “the amount of jokes that I could bring out right now.”
“All I will remember about Sarah Sanders is that she was less than transparent, and that after Trump’s firing of the FBI director James Comey, she said that she had spoken to countless members of the FBI and that they had no confidence in him,” said Hostin. “And then, under oath, when she was interviewed by Mueller’s team, she said that the sentiment that she said was not founded on anything. And that told me that she was a liar.”
“And that she diminished the office that she held,” Hostin added.
“They should bring in [Anthony] Scaramucci,” Behar chimed in. “At least we'll be entertained while he's lying.”
“Well, it won’t even matter anymore, because she’s not going to be there anymore, so, bye!” said Goldberg.
Ever since the announcement, the media has been bashing Sanders as a "prolific liar" for saying in 2017 that "countless members of the FBI" had lost confidence in fired FBI Director James Comey.
Her successor has not yet been announced.
President Trump praised Sanders as "a very special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job!"
Sanders during an event at the White House called serving as press secretary an “opportunity of a lifetime.”
Trump has suggested Sanders run for governor of Arkansas, following in the footsteps of her father and former Gov. Mike Huckabee.
This most recent attack on her character comes just days after Sanders was called a “mouthpiece for fascism” by outspoken Trump hater Alec Baldwin.
Is civility now completely out of the question?
