Sarah Sanders will lie for Trump because she thinks she’s ‘defending God’s chosen leader’: Ex-Baptist pastor

Sarah Sanders appears in the White House Briefing Room (screen grab)

A lengthy New Yorker profile of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tries to answer why someone who is a devout Christian can justify repeatedly lying on behalf of President Donald Trump.

In part, the profile concludes that Sanders is willing to lie for the president because he has actually kept the promises he made to evangelical Christians, especially regarding the appointment of hard-line conservative judges.

The piece cites Washington Post religion reporter Michelle Boorstein, who says that evangelicals are happy to have a president who will do what they say — a stark contrast to past politicians who “have broken promises to Christian conservatives.”

It then quotes former Baptist pastor Brian Kaylor, a frequent critic of the president who believes most evangelicals see Trump’s 2016 election victory as a divine intervention that justifies excusing almost any kind of immoral behavior by the president.

“It’s more than you are defending a politician, or even a President,” he explained of Sanders’ mindset. “You are defending God’s chosen leader for this time.”

Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was ranting and raving like a wild man today, which is most certainly not news. But the backstory is hilarious.

Cruz was inconsolable Wednesday about Twitter’s decision to apply its policies against the spread of hacked materials to New York Post reporting that was based on hacked materials. At issue was the Post’s earnest attempt to invent an October surprise with the “bombshell” that Hunter Biden and the Biden family are responsible for all of the world’s corruption and pedophilia for the past 30 years. Or something of the sort.

While the Post stories might be traceable to reliable sources in the Kremlin, normal people in the media--including some at Fox News--have not been able to confirm the authenticity of whatever might or might not exist on a personal laptop left in a repair shop. As if it all weren’t sleazy enough, the obvious instigator was Rudy Guiliani, who had apparently picked up some information while running a political errand to Ukraine.

Ex-Trump staffer says conservative media ‘brainwashed’ her into hating Democrats

Published

On CNN Wednesday, Jessica Denson, the former coordinator of the Trump 2016 campaign's Hispanic outreach who starred in a recent ad for Joe Biden, opened up about how she was taken in by the Trump campaign — and why he must be defeated.

"My motive to go and help that campaign and be of service to the American people was sabotaged, and I've seen my experience repeated in the experience of one public servant after another over the past four years," said Denson, who spearheaded a lawsuit to free former Trump campaign officials from nondisclosure agreements. "I have seen that this campaign continues to go out brandishing a Bible and an American flag and claiming that they have anything to do with freedom, but I've lived first-hand that they have nothing to do with freedom. They have worked very much against free speech and democracy."

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany is once again under fire for her hypocrisy after attacking Miles Taylor. The former Homeland Security chief of staff for months has been criticizing the Trump administration, and today acknowledged he is "Anonymous," the author of the bombshell 2018 New York Times op-ed revealing a small cadre of administration officials were working, he claimed, to protect America from Trump's worst impulses.
