Sarah Sanders keeps digging herself in deeper after Mueller showed she lied

Sarah Sanders keeps digging herself in deeper after Mueller showed she lied
The press secretary is now lying about lies.




Press secretary Sarah Sanders was caught lying several times in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, and now she’s defending herself with more misdirections.

During a string of media appearances following the release of the Mueller report on Thursday, Sanders has faced questions about a claim she made during a May 2017 press briefing that she later admitted was false during testimony to Mueller’s team. In an attempt to justify President Donald Trump’s decision to fire then FBI director James Comey, Sanders told reporters that “countless members of the FBI” had contacted her to say they had lost confidence in Comey, when in fact that wasn’t the case.

On Thursday evening and Friday morning, Sanders repeatedly downplayed that lie as a mere “slip of the tongue.” But as ABC’s George Stephanopoulos pointed out to her in an interview on Friday morning, she used the line about “countless members of the FBI” multiple times in the days following Comey’s firing — a revelation undercutting her claim that she merely misspoke.

“You said it was a ‘slip of the tongue’ when you talked about ‘countless FBI members,’ yet you repeated it twice the very next day,” Stephanopoulos said. “That’s not a slip of the tongue, Sarah, that’s a deliberate false statement.”

Sanders, however, refused to own it, and bizarrely blamed her lie on Democrats.


“I’m sorry I wasn’t a robot like the Democratic Party that went out for two-and-a-half years and stated time and time again that there was definitely Russian collusion between the president and his campaign, that they had evidence to show it, and that the president and his team deserved to be in jail,” she said. “That he shouldn’t be in office, when really they were the ones that were creating the greatest scandal in the history of our country.”

1. I too am sorry that you're not a robot, Sarah.

We'd have a much better chance of getting truth and logic from you if you were.

3. "I didn't lie! I just repeated, over and over again, a lot of stuff that wasn't true.

And then I suddenly found myself rudely insulted by mindless robots! Whatever has become of civility?"

6. Glad it made you smile!

Sure wish I knew how to do PhotoShop, what a zinger that would be. Use a few coal shovels for her mouth, or maybe one of those big jaw-hinged buckets they use in strip mines.

8. Again, no shame....

She should be shamed into apologizing. Else everything she says should be reported as alleged by Sarah Sanders; or reference made to her lie.
