Sarah Huckabee Sanders was back at it again on Sunday, defending Donald Trump like the tireless, clueless mouthpiece that she is.
Among other things, Sanders, who never met a fact she couldn’t ignore, told Fox News Sunday’s Chris Wallace that she didn’t think Congress was “smart enough” to understand Trump’s long-awaited but still-unreleased tax returns and said that she didn’t trust them to look through “the decades of success that the President has.”
Sarah Sanders claims members of Congress are too dumb to review Trump's tax returns— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) April 14, 2019
"Frankly, I don't think Congress, particularly not this group of congressmen & women, are smart enough to look through the thousands of pages... my guess is most of them don't do their own taxes" pic.twitter.com/IAfWDZ7FPd
Sanders also called the House’s demand to see Trump’s taxes like every other goddamn president “a disgusting overreach” but it was her comment that Congress isn’t “smart enough” to understand Trump’s decades of corrupt wheelings and dealings that caught people’s attention and drew their ire.
Her intelligence was…questioned.
Because of course Sarah is the authority on intelligence.— FuckItWe’llDoItLive! (@KingLouiedaVIII) April 14, 2019
Sarah Sanders would be well advised to avoid the term "not smart enough."— Allan Schlosser (@AllanSchlosser) April 14, 2019
Trump isn't smart enough to read through Green Eggs and Ham. Quit lying, Sarah.— Sally Meyer Cummings (@scummings929) April 14, 2019
.@PressSec Sarah Sanders isn't smart enough to stop shilling/lying for this corrupt & disgraceful #POTUS.— Tom Schopper (@SchopperPhoto) April 14, 2019
Claiming the elected Congress is stupid is inappropriate for any press secretary (esp this one: hello, pot meet kettle?). It's also incorrect. Seriously: #STFU Sarah. https://t.co/QcV6C89DKm
Sarah Sanders isn't smart enough to know what it means to be smart enough.— Jo Lown 🎨🌴🌊🇺🇸 (@JLownLaw) April 14, 2019
The irony of anyone in this clown car of an administration calling anyone “not smart enough” is so delicious it just has to be bad for you.— 🇺🇸Ryan Church ⚽️ (@huskervet04) April 14, 2019
Unbelievably error-gant. Look at all of the reps in Congress who are/were Rhodes Scholars and work your way up from there. Release your college transcripts, @realDonaldTrump. "Stupid is as stupid does." https://t.co/gOkekwwutP— David MacPhee (@DaveLew71565477) April 14, 2019
Not smart enough, really @PressSec? Seems to be a consistent tactic with Conservatives, calling out the people who have so much more intelligence than they as stupid. Fact is, Republicans are threatened by these incredibly intelligent & courageous women who WILL change the world. https://t.co/05q1kzlBvn— WUWURU (@WUWURUtshirts) April 14, 2019
wow sarah. i guess you believe all the American citizens that voted these not “smart enough” members into congress are not smart as well.— 🆒™️ (@Fretful_Mess) April 14, 2019
what a fucking stupid thing to say.

So says the idiot press secretary who represents the biggest moron to ever occupy the White House. (The fact is clueless people, by definition, haven't the slightest clue that they're stupid and prone to saying stupid things.)https://t.co/jZAUj4owis
She just called the people who actually WRITE THE TAX LAWS, too stupid to understand a tax return.🤦🏽♀️ WTF👏🏽IS👏🏽WRONG👏🏽WITH👏🏽THESE👏🏽PEOPLE???? She needs to focus on why her job as Press Liar has her looking 60 years old at age 37.— Mileeva (@MicheleLeeEvans) April 14, 2019
This will be a big hit on Capitol Hill. This assuredly will persuade them to back off — in my experience, any self-respecting person who’s told he’s/she’s stupid will defer to that characterization.— SaukFish (@SaukFish) April 14, 2019
Sarah Sanders claiming elected officials are stupid is both wildly inappropriate for a press secretary (who is herself under-educated) and incorrect AND beside the point. https://t.co/fRBBtGjoI4— Victoria Brownworth (@VABVOX) April 14, 2019
So, @PressSec said Democrats are not smart enough to read @realDonaldTrump Tax returns. That’s not saying much for the #GOP since they are about a thousand times more stupid than the #Democrats could ever hope to be.— Randall Smith (@randallaubwa) April 14, 2019
Well, Sanders is definitely too stupid herself. Guess she must think everyone is like her.— Karen Backstein (@KarenatashaB) April 14, 2019
The party of the poorly educated once again thinks they are smarter than those who are educated. They are so stupid that they have no idea just how stupid they really are. 🤣 https://t.co/LKxEPPuJTQ— CADOF (@CADOF1) April 14, 2019
This is what a Press secretary does in this administration? Calls the opposition party stupid? Since when was this the decorum expected?— Dianne (@dikell3) April 14, 2019
@PressSec calling ppl stupid is sort of silly. The Bushes released their tax returns. I am not Bush fan, but they were legitimately rich.— Suki (@suekhi) April 14, 2019
I think we will be able to figure it out.
Only one stupid is Trump and the press secretary Sarah. Tax returns are not that hard to read and understand that Trump is a crook. SHOW them if nothing to hide— robin lazarek (@robinlazarek1) April 14, 2019
Classic projection.— Eric Slater (@ericsslater) April 14, 2019
