On Monday, confirming reports initially circulating on Sunday evening, former Trump White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders released a video announcing her candidacy for governor of Arkansas, loaded to the brim with red meat for the pro-Trump base.
"I took on the media, the radical left, and their 'cancel culture,' and I won," Sanders said in the video. "As governor, I will be your voice, and never let them silence you."

Her announcement prompted derision from commenters on social media, with many people pointing out her infamous propensity to tell obvious, provable lies from the White House briefing podium.
This should be interesting. You will fail in spectacular ways.

"I took on the media, the radical left and their 'cancel culture,' and I won."
Sanders admitted to investigators she gave false info during briefings.
Trump announced Sanders' departure in 2019. https://t.co/63MsxdF89T

Oh yes that's just what people need a Governor whos focus is on something that primarily exists on Twitter! Meanwhile, her and her people literally tried to cancel America but go off, they'll buy the stupid you're selling https://t.co/tRIHlczNji

Who the hell in the media and on the left is fixated on “canceling" voices in Arkansas? Most Arkansans have no idea what she's talking about but are wondering what she thinks about the potholes, the schools, and property taxes. https://t.co/XG9ZAnBqp6

Gubernatorial candidate Sarah 2021 claiming she fought “cancel culture" is the same Smokey eyed lying press sec Sarah 2018 who helped cancel Michelle Wolf for really funny, truthy jokes. https://t.co/ea2AYNXvfy

How does her non-stop grievance create jobs, balance the state budget, improve schools, and provide infrastructure?
You know, the stuff governors actually need to be good at?

Funny how that seems to be working these days.....All of the LOSERS claiming they've won. LOL! It truly boggles the mind.

Exactly, JFC. Elected officials aren't supposed to "take on the media" unless, I guess, they are actively promoting lies. This mindset that Trump ushered in, needs to be discouraged, not promoted as some qualification for high office.

Still gaslighting you didn't win anything but you worked for us and all we got was insults lies and then stopped doing your job if people in Arkansas have any sense they will know you'll do the same thing to them as you did in the WH

A more honest rollout would be, “As Press Secretary, I lied to reporters daily for Trump. If you elect me
as Arkansas's next governor, I promise to lie to you too."
