Sarah Huckabee Sanders, LieMaster3000, Is Running for Governor of Arkansas

At present, Donald Trump is 992 miles from the White House and in a few short weeks could be banned from even thinking about the presidency ever again. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean the earth will be entirely cleansed of Trumpism, thanks to the many administration alums who will undoubtedly run for office, including his daughter, who apparently believes her shot at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue remains strong. Kicking things off on Monday was Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who apparently hopes her tenure as one of the ex-president’s most loyal stooges will catapult her to the Arkansas governor’s mansion.

In a painfully long 7-minute, 46-second video that begins with a story of a soldier in Iraq who told her how impressed he was with her for handling such a tough job (i.e. White House press secretary), Sanders says, as all Republicans are required to do, that she’ll defend Arkansans’ “right to be free of socialism and tyranny,” noting that in her previous gig, she “took on the media, the radical left, and their ‘cancel culture,’ and I won.”

Naturally, Sanders doesn’t find time in the video to mention that her battle with the radical-left media concluded with her being thrown a fancy, chummy going-away party. Or that if there was any tension between her and the press, it might have had to do with her insistence on lying about everything all the time. But hey! Maybe those details were left on the cutting room floor. Anyway, just so it’s clear, during her time shilling for Trump, Sanders:

  • Denied knowledge of Trump’s in-office hush money payments, despite the fact that Trump himself admitted to them;
  • Claimed that Trump created many more jobs for African Americans than Barack Obama, when, in reality, Obama created four times as many as Trump;
  • Insisted that Trump had never “promoted or encouraged violence,” despite the fact that Trump said at a rally that he wanted to “punch” an ejected protester “in the face”; told a crowd in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, “If you see somebody getting ready to throw a tomato, knock the crap out of them, would you? Seriously, okay. Just knock the hell—I promise you I will pay for the legal fees, I promise”; openly fantasized about “Second Amendment people” preventing the appointment of liberal judges; and instructed police officers to knock suspects’ heads against the side of their squad cars.
  • Smeared the women who accused Trump of sexual harassment or sexual assault and claimed they were liars;
  • Told an elaborate story about how she’d heard from “countless…individuals who work at the FBI who said they were very happy” with Trump’s decision to fire James Comey, in an attempt to make Trump’s claim that the firing was all about agency morale stick, and that it had nothing whatsoever to do with the Russia investigation. Which, of course, she admitted during her interview with Special Counsel Robert Mueller was a total lie. Later, she doubled down on the whole thing, telling George Stephanopoulos that she only admitted to lying about hearing from “countless” people, which would still make what she told the press corps, you guessed it, a lie!
