Sarah Huckabee Sanders
New York Times reporter Shawn McCreesh was amazed, and perhaps slightly appalled, to catch some White House reporters being civil to the recently resigned White House press secretary, by actually (gasp!) attending her farewell drinks party: “Toasting Sarah Huckabee Sanders. By the Press. Really.” How could this happen? "Maybe it was a case of Stockholm syndrome."
Bette Midler apparently has a new career as a limerick writer. She’s using it as a weapon on the people she hates the most: the Trump administration. The actress who considers herself a feminist does not consider her own words to be demeaning to women.
The hosts of The View saved time to bash White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders on Monday’s show, after she announced last week that she would be leaving her post at the end of the month. Whoopi and Joy Behar reveled in the news, mocking her while Sunny Hostin took a more dramatic tone, blasting Sanders as a liar who had forever tainted the position.
Just a day after the White House announced the departure of Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, The Washington Post posted a heartwarming tribute to Sanders on its Instagram page. Just kidding. The Post instead followed the lead of cable television; providing nasty commentary describing her as “the queen of gaslighting” and mocking her “curled-lip disdain.”
Not long after Sarah Huckabee Sanders decided to step down as press secretary for the Trump administration, MSNBC Live anchor Hallie Jackson took advantage of the situation on Friday by asking Sanders’ predecessor, Sean Spicer, if he had set a standard for dishonesty during his time in the White House. To no one’s surprise, Spicer denied the allegation as a “pretty loaded question” before admitting he made mistakes and told Jackson he hoped she would own up to her own as a reporter.
Yesterday, President Trump announced the departure of White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Immediately following the announcement, Hollywood celebrities and their lefty media pals popped the champagne bottles, taking pot shots at the former Trump staffer.
CNN chief White House correspondent and cartoonishly self-centered Jim Acosta released on Tuesday his 353-page work of narcissism, The Enemy of the People: A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America. And, folks, it’s everything you thought it would be and then some. CNN chief White House correspondent and cartoonishly self-centered Jim Acosta released on Tuesday his 354-page work of narcissism, The Enemy of the People. And, folks, it’s everything you thought it would be and then some.
All three morning shows on Friday covered the surprising news that Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be stepping down as press secretary, but only CBS got nasty and insisted that “many believe” Sanders committed a “disservice to her country” while working for the White House. CBS This Morning reporter Paula Reid snidely offered quote marks, relating, “Yesterday, the President announced Sanders announced she would be leaving, her, quote, ‘service to her country.’
At the news that White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders would be leaving her post at the end of the month, CNN shamelessly spent their primetime hours that night giving her most bitter foe in the press free reign to bash her character. Both Erin Burnett and Don Lemon brought on April Ryan, who isn’t event CNN’s own White House correspondent, to slam Sanders one last time as “suffering from lie-abetes” and declaring her was the “worst press secretary” in the past three decades.
On Sunday's Up with David Gura show on MSNBC, during a panel discussion lambasting White House officials like Kellyanne Conway for pushing "lies" and "propaganda" in their press appearances, the show made an on-screen misspelling that seems unlikely to have been an innocent typo as the chyron misquoted Conway as saying President Donald Trump "commended" neo-Nazis.
The New York Times’ hostile coverage of the annual White House Easter Egg Roll proved the paper wouldn’t dare give the Trump administration an easy boost with the non-offensive ritual, the way it did during the Obama administration. The headline in Tuesday’s edition was the giveaway: “Easter Eggs Come With a Side of Politics.” The online headline: “At a White House Tradition, Politics Color Everything but the Easter Eggs."
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Monday’s Fox & Friends and responded to the latest insults from ever-bitter CNN political analyst and American Urban Radio Networks White House correspondent April Ryan, who had stated on Thursday that Sanders “can’t” be “trust[ed]” and quipped that she should have her head “lopp[ed]....off.”
