Sarah Sanders Thinks Reporter Wants Her Decapitated, Proves She Doesn’t Understand Metaphors

Sarah Huckabee Sanders showed the world that she doesn’t understand how metaphors worked when she went on Fox & Friends today and acted like a fairly common idiom was a completely literal statement.

Last week, April Ryan of American Urban Radio Networks and CNN was speaking on all the lies told by Sanders that were exposed in the Mueller report and arguing that the press secretary should be fired for betraying the trust of the American people. She then used a common metaphor for firing people to stress her point.

“She out and out lied. And the people, the American people, can’t trust her. They can’t trust what’s said from the president’s mouthpiece, spokesperson from the people’s house; therefore, she should be let go. … When there is a lack of credibility there, you have to start and start lopping the heads off.”

We’ve all heard the idea of heads rolling or being cut off when someone screws up really bad at work, right? Right?

Apparently, not Sanders. Or, and this seems more likely, she’s obscuring the truth by acting like she took Ryan’s words at face value because Sarah Huckabee Sanders is chronically dishonest.

“I’ve had reporters say a lot of things about me,” Sanders said on Fox & Friends “They’ve said I should be choked, they said I should deserve a lifetime of harassment, but certainly never had somebody say that I should be decapitated.”

And to be perfectly clear, no one actually thinks you’re a literal potato, Sanders.

To top it all off, Sanders then said that because (in her mind) Ryan literally called for her head to come off, it’s the media that shouldn’t be taken seriously.

“I think it just once again proves why this journalist isn’t taken seriously,” she said.

A lack of comprehension of idioms and metaphors apparently runs in the family as Mike Huckabee took to Twitter last Friday to call for Ryan to have her press credentials revoked for “inciting murder.” Ryan actually had to apologize on CNN after explaining that she didn’t mean it literally, because that’s the kind of world we live in right now.

I hope he was ready for 17,000 “it’s a metaphor” jokes, reminders that he’s a massive hypocrite, and roasts of his terrible children.

And seriously, Mike. You said April Ryan should be “gutted like a deer.” She hasn’t forgotten.

And that was over pies. Pies, Huckabee. Sit down.
