The amount of nonsense that comes out of Donald Trump’s mouth is absolutely unprecedented, and he’s also managed to damage the credibility of anyone who is faced with the unfortunate task of defending his ridiculous lies.
Just as we’ve seen with former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, current Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has also damaged her reputation beyond repair by signing up to be Trump’s mouthpiece. The problem is, America is having none of it. In an appearance on ABC’s The View, Sanders got her a** handed to her on national television when she tried to paint Trump as an honest person.
Sanders was accompanied by her father, former Arkansas governor and failed 2016 presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, as the two tried their best to defend Trump. When View co-host Sara Haines called on Sanders not to label the media as “fake news,” Sanders pushed back and said the Trump administration was justified in calling out the media. Co-host Joy Behar fought back:
Is the media not supposed to report on the fact that 95 percent of what [Trump] says is a lie?”
Sanders countered,“The problem with that, Joy, that is — you are doing exactly what you’re talking about and pushing a false narrative.”
Behar argued, “No it’s not. It’s from PolitiFact. It’s not just the dreaded New York Times, it is other outlets that say it.”
And then Sanders made the fatal mistake of insisting that Trump was actually an honest person – and co-host Whoopi Goldberg ripped her apart for it. Goldberg said:
You have to get someone in the office who recognizes what the truth is. I will take you just to one point we can all agree on — where was President Obama born and is he an American citizen?”
Sanders stumbled and tried to get out of answering the question directly, meekly replying, “I think this has been pretty well addressed.”
Goldberg pointed out:
That’s a narrative that went on forever. And he didn’t clear it up until after he was in office. Come on! It’s a lie!”
Trump is the most dishonest POTUS the country has ever had – and everyone knows it. You can watch Sanders get called out on live television below:
