It’s about time that someone looked Sarah Huckabee Sanders in the eye and called her out for all of the bullshit and lies coming from this White House. And Joy and Whoopi are just the ladies to do it.
This past week, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders appeared with her father on ABC’s The View. And it didn’t go so well for her.
When the ladies on the panel brought up Trump’s constant lying, Sanders tried to make some kind of false equivalence saying that the media needed to do a better job with telling just the facts. But Behar quickly cornered her, pointing out that fact-checkers have found that Trump only tells the truth about 5% of the time.
“Is the media not supposed to report on the fact that 95% of what [Trump] says is a lie?”
“The problem with that, Joy, is that you are doing exactly what we are talking about and pushing a false narrative.”
Behar repeated that this comes from actual fact-checkers. And then she said,
“I feel for you. I feel sorry for you that you have to go out and defend those lies every day.”
Whoopi Goldberg joined in, pounding Sanders on the lying. She asked the squirming press secretary, “Where was President Obama born and is he an American citizen?”
“I think that has been pretty well addressed,” Sanders answered.
“But this narrative, this is what I’m talking about,” Whoopi said. “That’s a [false] narrative that went on forever and [Trump] didn’t clear it up until after he was in office.”
