Sarah Huckabee Sanders Said She Wants To Be Remembered For Being ‘Transparent And Honest’ And LOL

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders‘s statement that she hopes to be remembered as “transparent and honest” during her time at the White House is raising a lot of eyebrows.

Regarding her legacy, Sanders told Politico’s Eliana Johnson that she wanted to known as someone who showed up and did “the very best job that I could to put forward the president’s message.”

“To do the best job that I could do to answer questions, to be transparent and honest throughout that process,” Sanders continued, at the sixth annual Women Rule Summit. “And do everything I could to make America a little better that day than it was the day before.”

Politifact.com currently lists five times the White House press secretary gave objectively false information, including lying about unemployment, immigration, and gun violence.

As the HuffingtonPost points out, much of Sanders’ dishonesty stems from her refusal to acknowledge when the president has lied, inflating her deception track record immeasurably. Back in May, Sanders said the Trump administration is “committed to a free press” immediately after Trump threatened to strip reporters of credentials (and six months before he actually did, in the case of CNN’s Jim Acosta.)

When asked about the president’s “contentious interactions” with female reporters (including but not limited to the time he called journalist April Ryan a “loser” and told CNN White House correspondent Abby D. Phillip she asked “a lot of stupid questions”—both WOC reporters, not-so-incidentally), Sanders bluntly replied that “The president’s had an equal number of contentious conversations with your male colleagues.”

“The president is not ― is certainly not singling out women,” she said, when Johnson asked whether Trump’s behavior was appropriate. “And, frankly, I think it is actually a detriment when we do that. I think by asking am I upset because he called out a female reporter, absolutely not. Women wanted to be treated equally, and we have a president that certainly does that. He is not going to hold back.”
