Sarah Huckabee Sanders Tries To Screw Over Journalists And Was Stopped Immediately

Published

In a weird way, I sort of feel sorry for Sarah Huckabee Sanders. She has one of the most difficult and horrible jobs in the world – resolutely defending President Donald Trump even when he says things that are profoundly bigoted and utterly disguting, or simply factually inaccurate and indicative of his total debilitating incompetence.

At the same time, though, there is some behavior that is totally unacceptable for anybody, let alone someone in the public eye and with so much responsibility as Huckabee Sanders has. And gaslighting definitely falls into that category.

For the uninitiated, gaslighting is defined as when someone tries to make you question your own reality and sanity by lying, by speaking in contradictions, and by denying the reality that you know to be true. Those are, in fact, the words of the brilliant Anderson Cooper of CNN, who has been brutally lambasting Huckabee Sanders on live TV for gaslighting journalists, as well as ordinary American people. He continued: So that is how the White House is gaslighting the American people daily in an effort to cover up how it handled the case of Rob Porter.

If you are not already aware, Rob Porter is a former White House official who resigned after both of his ex-wives publicly accused him of assault and domestic abuse. Since his resignation, many have suspected that some other senior White House officials – such as Chief of Staff John Kelly – knew about the alleged domestic abuse beforehand and tried their best to keep it schtum.

Anderson Cooper, as ever, does a fantastic job of taking apart this story piece by piece and explaining why the White House is, once again, totally and utterly in the wrong on this. He narrates how “the story magically, conveniently changed hours after the FBI Director testified about a timeline that directly contradicted what the White House had said just yesterday.”

In the monologue, he goes on to discuss how outrageous (and poorly executed) the whole operation was on the part of the White House, given the fact that (as specified in the above quote) the official version of the story suddenly underwent a radical transformation as soon as the testimony of FBI Director Christopher Wray started to mess everything up for them.

It’s definitely worth the watch.
