Huckabee Sanders peddles Washington Post story hours after sneering at reporter for using it as source

Published

on

At Tuesday afternoon’s White House press briefing, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders criticized a reporter for asking about a story from The Washington Post, then four hours later, she retweeted a story from that same paper encouraging people to read it.

The White House has maligned every news organization in the country as “fake news” except for the Fox News Channel, which reliably produces pro-Trump propaganda on a daily basis.

A reporter confronted Sanders on Tuesday about the Trump administration’s contention that Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) is responsible for the Iran nuclear deal, which is verifiably false, earning a “4 Pinocchios” rating from the Post‘s fact checking team.

“As I’ve said many times before,” Sanders said, “I wouldn’t use The Washington Post as my source, Jeff. You should know better than that.”

Four hours was precisely enough time for Sanders to forget her own advice, however, when she retweeted a link to a Washington Post story revealing that the Steele dossier was partially funded by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign.

Meghan McCain dropped the B-word on air during an argument with Joy Behar, and social media users were just as shocked as the "The View" studio audience.

She and co-host Joy Behar were arguing over Trump supporters when McCain blew up.

“Being the sacrificial Republican every day,” she said. “I’m just trying to — don’t feel bad for me, bitch. I’m paid to do this, okay? Don’t feel bad for me.”

Florida Republicans concoct a new scheme to make it harder for students to vote

Published

on

Florida Republicans do not want to make voting easy for college students — a demographic that leans heavily Democratic.

Former GOP Secretary of State Ken Detzner, an appointee of Gov. Rick Scott, took that to the extreme in 2014, with an order banning county election officials from setting up any early voting sites on college campuses. Last year, following a lawsuit by the League of Women Voters, federal District Judge Mark Walker struck down that order as an unconstitutional burden on students' voting rights. As a result, some 60,000 people were able to vote early on 11 college campuses in Florida in 2018.
