Exposed as a liar by the Mueller report, Sarah Sanders visited Fox News on Monday and continued to lie, this time about CNN reporter April Ryan, who Sanders falsely accused of making death threats. Ryan, clearly speaking metaphorically, said last week that the White House needed to “start lopping the heads off” after the Mueller report showed the depth of incompetence, chaos, and corruption under President Donald Trump’s administration.
“I have had reporters say a lot of things about me. They’ve said I should be choked. I should deserve a lifetime of harassment, but certainly never had anybody say I should be decapitated,” said Sanders, providing no evidence for her claims. In fact Sanders’ father, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, has said Ryan should be “gutted like a deer.”
“It takes us to a new low, even for liberal media,” complained Sanders, as she continued to lie about Ryan. “It once again proves why this journalist isn’t taken seriously.” In fact, Ryan has won numerous awards for her reporting including 2017 “Journalist of the Year” by the National Association of Black Journalists. Earlier this year, Ryan was honored with the 2019 Freedom of the Press Award by the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. Her book about the Trump White House, The Presidency in Black and White is a best-seller.
“I think our team needs to remain focused on how we keep pushing those things that actually help Americans and not engage in these petty fights with journalists that again shouldn’t be taken seriously,” Sanders went on, publicly escalating her petty fight with Ryan.
Reporters like Ryan aren’t “taken seriously” and were simply “looking for couple more minutes on TV,” Sanders said after her already shaky reputation for forthrightness was destroyed, and she stood in front of the cameras and continued to spew word salad as families rolled Easter Eggs behind her on the White House lawn.
Rick Santorum rips into Corey Lewandowski’s ‘flippant’ admission that he’s happy to lie to the media
During his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, President Donald Trump's former campaign adviser Corey Lewandowski — who was hoping to leverage his appearance trashing Democrats and the Russia investigation for a Senate run in New Hampshire — was forced to admit that he constantly lies on air.
On CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360," even former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA), a staunch defender of the president, was aghast at this.
"Senator, isn't it kind of a weird way to run for Senate by admitting that you're happy to lie to the American people?" asked Cooper. "I know he was phrasing it as lying to the media, lying to reporters, but, you know, it's not as if — the end result is you're lying to the American people. You are giving people false information. And you're fine with that? You have no moral problem with that?"
Right-wingers have a full-blown freakout over Kavanaugh revelations — and it could blow up in their faces
Do Republicans think “men are the real victims of sexism” is a winning argument going into the 2020 election? That sounds preposterous, but there are strong indications that Donald Trump and other leading Republicans believe they can win by feeding a “victim mentality” in men, a mentality they otherwise tend to decry when detected in actual victims.
On Sunday, the New York Times published an article by the authors of a new book about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, introducing more corroborating evidence for claims that Kavanaugh had a history throughout high school and college of getting trashed and then sexually abusing his female classmates. That story, almost a year after Kavanaugh’s momentous confirmation hearings, was interesting further evidence that Kavanaugh likely perjured himself before the Senate. Ultimately, it doesn’t really change anything, since there’s little reason to believe that anyone actually believed Kavanaugh was telling the truth at the time.
Air Force admits it ‘would’t be surprised’ if they were ‘Trump Turnberry’s largest customer’
The Air Force has not only been staying at Trump's resorts for three years, but they were also likely the largest customer of Trump's Scottish golf club.
Washington Post reporters David Fahrenthold and Jonathan O'Connell outed President Donald Trump for working his official relationship with the Saudi royal family so they'd stay at his hotels. Politico reporter Natasha Bertrand uncovered the fact that the U.S. Air Force was being used to funnel cash to the president's companies.
Trump's Turnberry resort was losing money until he was able to reroute Air Force plans to land in Scotland to refuel instead of a military base. While that might cost American taxpayers significantly more money, it was good business for the president. Now the resort is doing extremely well.
