For the record: Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a) a liar b) full of 'HuckaBS'

Posted By on Fri, Nov 9, 2018 at 8:02 AM


Just for the record: Here's AP on expert opinion that Sarah Huckabee Sanders distributed a doctored video to support the White House taking a press pass from CNN's Jim Acosta after he resisted a White House staffer's effort to take a microphone away from him. Interesting sentence in wire service account:

While the origin of the manipulated video is unclear, its distribution marked a new low for an administration that has been criticized for its willingness to mislead.
Strong words for the straight-ahead AP. I'd say "willingness to mislead" is the functional equivalent of a lie. That word has begun appearing frequently in straight news accounts because it is simply factual. Donald Trump lies. He knows it. Sarah Huckabee Sanders repeats his lies. She knows it.

These are dark times and not only because of the pack of lying liars in charge. They enjoy broad support — 50 percent or better here in Darkansas.

PS: Jimmy Kimmel called for Sanders to be fired. He commented on the Acosta event:

“Not only didn’t he accost her—he said ‘pardon me, ma’am.’ But that’s where the Hucka-B.S. machine comes in.”

Kimmel called for Sanders’ dismissal on Thursday, but not before giving her one bit of backhanded praise: “I think this also might be the first time I’ve seen Sarah Sanders take the woman’s side on any subject, ever—so, good for her.”
