Lying to the bitter end

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is leaving her job and her statement as to how she wished to be remembered is completely consistent with what she has said and done before in that it is full of lies.

“I hope that it will be that I showed up every day and I did the very best job that I could to put forward the president’s message … to do the best job that I could to answer questions. To be transparent and honest throughout that process and do everything I could to make America a little better that day than it was the day before.”

Given that she has not held a press conference in three months, it is not clear what she has been doing after ‘showing up every day’.

I won’t even bother with her statement that she tried to be transparent and honest. And trying to “make America a little better that day than it was the day before”? Please. As with pretty much everything coming out of the White House, you can take the opposite of what they say as the truth.

The one thing that is true is that she “did the very best job that I could to put forward the president’s message”. That was easy for her since he is also a liar. Mission accomplished!

    She was supposed to leave at the end of January, last I’d heard until now. So I’ll believe it when she’s gone. Just watch -- at the last minute she’ll decide she has to stay on for the good of the country since they can’t find anyone to replace her.

    Kayleigh McEnany, who’s currently the Great Trumpkin’s campaign press secretary, would be perfect for the job, since she’s clearly drunk on the Kool-Aid and speaks fluent gibberish, but she’s already got a job lying to media for him. Still, I guess there’s nothing stopping her from holding both jobs.

    ^ Especially given that the job apparently permits breaks of several months between appearances.

    Well, she was unashamedly a spin-heavy apologist for the President; and she kept a straighter face than whatshisname (Spicer, after clicketing) when obviously bullshitting.

    The sheer pointlessness of that stance is what’s brought the press secretary position into its current irrelevance.

    (William Barr is working at doing the same thing to his own current position, IMO)
