Nobody likes a liar for myriad reasons, but chief among them is that no sane human being wants to be around or associated with a person that can’t be trusted, is dishonest, and will break all ethical rules and societal norms for profit to themselves. Of course there are always imbeciles that embrace liars and it explains exactly why Trump still has support among the gullible class. It is also why he has such a devout following among the evangelical crowd; they believe absurd archaic mythology at about the same rate they believe Trump’s lies; even though his lies are easily debunked.
After former F.B.I. Director James B. Comey testified in front of the Senate under oath and told the truth about the Trump, he was tickled at the idea that Trump may have tape recordings of the meetings he had with, as Vox noted, “the bullshitter-in-chief.” In fact, when the subject of White House tapes came up during his testimony and interrogation by the senators, Mr. Comey said, “Lordy, I hope there are tapes;” he knew they would show what everyone already knows, that Trump is a liar. Of course Donald Trump is a dirty pathological liar and the Senate Republicans know it as well as the White House “principle” deputy press-secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders does.
Despite knowing Trump lies at the same rate most humans draw breath, Huckabee Sanders revealed that she is nearly as pathological a liar as her boss deceitful Don. During a press briefing after Comey’s Senate testimony a reporter asked Huckabee Sanders; “does the president lie?” She said:
“No, I can definitely say the president is not a liar. I think it’s frankly insulting that that question would be asked.”
What’s insulting to anyone with an IQ over 34 is that Huckabee Sanders actually thinks any American is going to believe “the president is not a liar” when there are literally hundreds of glaring lies and as many “not fake news” revelations that dishonest Don Trump is a very proficient pathological liar.
Now everyone in American knows that Trump’s “principle deputy press secretary” Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a liar too.
However, it is likely that if she didn’t emulate Trump, his family, his inner circle and no small number of his cabinet members in the Trump liars club, she would not have a job. Still, that doesn’t give her a pass for treating the American people and members of the press as if they are as stupid as Trump to fall for a bald-faced lie about a lying liar like her boss two-faced Trump.
There are websites devoted to listing Trump’s lies, and several media outlets are frantically attempting to keep the Trump lie list updated; it is a full-time task with this bunch of liars. But instead of going through, literally, hundreds of Trump lies, there are a couple that are so glaring it makes one wonder why the mythological god of the Christian bible didn’t smite Huckabee Sanders with a proper Old Testament plague right in plain view of the press and on camera.
Huckabee Sanders, and the entire nation, knows damn well that Trump lied when the question of releasing his tax returns from previous years was raised throughout the campaign and since the election. First Trump said he would release them “later.” Then after the election his acolyte said “No, he’s not going to release them – he won.”
Then there’s Trump’s bullshit lie, the one he told a hundred or so times during the campaign, that he couldn’t legally release his tax returns because he was being audited by the I.R.S.; that dirty lie was swiftly debunked by no less a tax expert than the Director of the Internal Revenue Service. This “release the tax returns” cry was, and still is, a national issue and yet Huckabee Sanders said it’s “frankly insulting” that anyone would question Trump’s veracity. Huckabee Sanders is a typical Trump administration liar.
The “principle” deputy press secretary also knows that Trump pledged to completely separate himself from the Trump organization business, a dirty lie, and then verified he was lying by pledging to donate all “Trump business’s emolument money” he earned to charity.
First, Trump still has total control over his business empire and Huckabee knows it or the issue of “donating his organization’s emolument earnings” to charity would have never entered tiny-hands Trump’s pea-brain. And then in yet another related lie, Trump recently said he can’t possibly donate “emolument money his businesses earn” to charity because it’s simply way too hard and far too complicated; a familiar refrain from the Oval Office oaf.
Both issues have been raging in the press and all manner of media since the election, and particularly as of late; so it is impossible that a White House “principle deputy press secretary” would not know that dirty Donnie “definitely” is a liar; so is Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
The Trump administration is full of liars and as this author has said before, it must be a hard and fast rule that lying is not only acceptable, it is a requirement to work in the Trump administration. Mike Pence lied through his teeth on more than one occasion about Michael Flynn’s connections with Russia and Turkey. Attorney General Jeff Sessions also lied under oath before the Senate, a federal crime, during his confirmation hearings. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, E.P.A. Administrator Scott Pruitt, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, and Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Tom Price all sat before the Senate and committed perjury under oath. And they lied with impunity because this is Trump’s America and in his corrupt administration committing perjury, like treason, is not only acceptable, it is rewarded.
There is a good reason why James Comey carefully documented every meeting he had with Trump and he didn’t hesitate to tell the Senate; he didn’t trust Trump because he knows he is dishonest and a serial liar. Now the country knows that Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a liar like Trump, Pence, DeVos, Pruitt, Kushner, Mnuchin, Price, Sessions and likely the great majority of Trump’s inner circle.
That old saying that “you are the company you keep” may explain why Huckabee Sanders blatantly lied in front of the press, but it is more likely that she has always been a liar according to the ease at which she feigned being “insulted” that anyone would question Trump’s honesty. She certainly earned her stripes and qualifies as a member in good standing in Trump’s liars club; a distinction that most human beings would avoid at any cost.
