Sarah Huckabee Sanders is not your most informed, and certainly not your classiest player in the world of right wing political mania, but this is beyond the pale even for her. She mocked Joe Biden’s stutter, and immediately deleted the tweet when Twitter blew up in her face. She told Biden that she “didn’t know” he had a stutter. Three presidential bids, eight years as vice president, and how many years before that as a senator — and this is new information? But it does make sense, if you think about it. If you’re going to support Trump as wholeheartedly as she has, you have to be oblivious to who’s who and what’s what, even as he is. That’s the whole trick to Trumpism, stay in your bubble and stay ignorant, keep the blinders firmly in place, because once you get some information, you won’t be able to stick to your ridiculous talking points anymore, and the game’s over. And on this occasion, she really stepped in it. Here’s your DISGUSTING tweet mocking @JoeBiden Guess twitter blew up on you, huh? Anyone mock you when you were a Chubby Girl? Huh? Growing up chubby? pic.twitter.com/EVJtfFzKri — patsy lake (@patsylake) December 20, 2019 Twitter piled on with comments about SHS’s weight, her “Picasso eyes” that don’t match, all kinds of things, asking her “how do you like it?” This was don’t dish it out unless you can take it night for Sanders. I mentioned Sarah was buzzed because in my experience, alcohol tends to make social settings a bit friendlier, even w/ politics involved. Not for Sarah! Folks were avoiding her like the plague. Turns out there ain’t even enough alcohol to forget defending mass child abuse. — Charlotte Clymer????️???? (@cmclymer) December 20, 2019 I think SHS deserves everything she has gotten tonight, and more. The last straw for me was when she lied about Jim Acosta “striking” a “young intern” — and when all was said and done the video was doctored, sped up, and the woman in question was not an intern, but an employee of the White House communications office for a number of years. SHS is cut from the same bolt of cloth as Hanoi Hannah and Tokyo Rose. She’s a propagandist par excellence and she plays dirty. She was playing dirty with Biden tonight and she got caught. Too bad. I have zero compassion at this point. Not after all the lies that poured from the podium when she was press secretary. Maybe she should look up compassion, too, when she’s looking up empathy, and maybe it will begin to dawn on her why she’s so reviled.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders made a career out of lying in service to Trump, and she did it while on the taxpayer’s dime. Turns out, that was her version of broadcasting school, because now she’s graduated into the big time of mendacity, a gig as a contributor on Fox News. Sanders will make her debut on Fox on September 6. Mark that on your calendar, you won’t want to miss it. Wait! Hasn't @SarahHuckabee been working for Fox since she joined the Trump campaign? Or is that Fox has been working for the Trump campaign? It's all so confusing. — B Koplow (@bmkoplow5) August 22, 2019 And Sanders isn’t the only one hitting the airwaves. Sean Spicer is signed up to perform on “Dancing With The Stars.” Just think, friends, you get to see both former White House press secretaries on the silver screen, once again. Spicer couldn’t sell his book, but maybe he can sell his hoofing, who knows? He could become the Baryshnikov of Bullshit. But there’s an interesting pattern here: 1. Show business and politics have now become as one in the age of Trump; 2. There’s no disgrace in lying to the American people. Au contraire, there’s a contract in it. Great lesson to teach the young uns, perfidy pays. pic.twitter.com/7twQMsWxD8 — Andrew Hsieh #JS4PM ???????????????????????????? (@AndrewOnSeeAIR) August 22, 2019 There was only really two places Sarah Sanders could have gone, Fox News or Confession. — Jeremy Newberger (@jeremynewberger) August 22, 2019 Confession would have taken self honesty and awareness, plus some kind of a moral compass. Those attributes are incompatible with Trumpites, and non existent in Sanders. Mendacity is so much a part of her makeup that now it’s her defining feature — and she’s getting paid for it. She’s been admitted into the pantheon of world class dissemblers, Fox News. An interesting spin on “to thine own self be true.”
….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 It is zero coincidence that Sarah Huckabee Sanders quit […]
Now, this really warms the cockles of my heart. According to new reporting in The Hill, The Pampers President isn’t the only one having trouble keeping his mind on the task at hand. It seems like a lot of his subordinates and lackeys are having problems on keeping their own personal and political opinions to themselves at work too. According to the report, Trump’s first year in office saw a 30% jack up in formal complaints to the Special Counsel (not Robert Mueller) for violations of the Hatch Act. For those struggling to keep straight all of the various acts that Trump employees and appointees regularly flout, The Hill summed it up nicely; Under the Hatch Act, enacted in 1939, federal employees are barred from certain political activities, such as making partisan comments that could sway an election while using their official designations. It really ain’t that hard to figure out, and shouldn’t be that hard to avoid. If you work for the Department of Agriculture, you shouldn’t be ending a phone call by saying, “I’m glad I could help you out with that. And don’t forget to vote for Trump!” The offenses vary in their depth and some are quite inventive; At least 10 Trump senior officials have violated the act so far according to the Office of Special counsel, Politico reports. During the past few months, a Trump appointee reportedly had a “Make America Great Again” hat at her office at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and a top official at the Office of Management and Budget promoted Trump’s campaign slogan on Twitter. I know that some of these seem kind of pissy, but the intent is to eep federal employees from using their official positions to “tilt the playing field” in their direction, by implying that services may have a cost. Now, I must give credit where credit is due, as much as I absolutely loathe Blarah Flackabee Slanders, she has been a paragon of virtue in this regard whenever possible. In fact, one of her favorite ways of ducking an uncomfortable question from s reporter is to duck into the “Hatch Act” foxhole. Whom right now, I’m betting that George Conway was wishing his wayward spouse would spend more tine with at the office. To my jaundiced eye, KellyAnne Conway is the most profligate violator of the Hatch Act I’ve ever seen. And apparently I ain’t the only one, as she is singled out for special mention in the report; Among those targeted in recent complaints is White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway, who revealed her personal political views while appearing on CNN and discussing former Vice President Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential run — all while being identified by her official title. It is not the first time Conway of violating the act — she was found to have disobeyed the act on two previous occasions when she endorsed and advocated against political candidates during the Alabama special election for U.S. Senate. And to my mind, none of those are even the worst example. Almost before the name letter paint was dry on her office door, Conway was not only called out for, but had to be counseled by Trump’s White House for blatantly pimping Ivanka’s garish line of apparel crap from the White House press briefing room! I distinctly remember saying to myself at the time, “Yeah KellyAnne, that line of trash if right up […]
Sometimes people in Washington get it plain wrong!
If conservatives support police killing citizens without justification, climate denial, fact denial, science denial, racist and misogynistic behavior, or a litany of other absurd points of view about numerous important issues, we call them out.
