Sarah Sanders: I lied to the American people because I'm not a Democrat
Sarah Huckabee Sanders got caught in a lie in the Mueller report, and her spin to excuse her behavior is as shameless as you’d expect
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report exposed White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders for what everyone already knew she was: A bald-faced liar.
On Friday, she tried to explain away her unethical behavior. But in doing so, she only made things worse for herself.
“It was the heat of the moment, meaning that it wasn’t a scripted talking point,” Sanders said Friday morning in an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos. “I’m sorry that I wasn’t a robot like the Democrat Party.”
Pressed repeatedly on her comments on FBI agents, Sarah Sanders tells @GStephanopoulos, "It was the heat of the moment, meaning that it wasn't a scripted talking point. I'm sorry that I wasn't a robot like the Democratic Party" was about Mueller probe. https://t.co/mOQZNKl1wy pic.twitter.com/y3xcNwVYHg

Let’s break down Sanders’ shameless spin.
Apparently, Sanders says she can only tell the truth if it’s in a “scripted talking point.” So that’s more confirmation that her statements from the White House briefing room have been the despicable lies we’ve always known they were.
And she couldn’t even muster a sincere apology for blatantly lying to the public who expects the White House’s top spokesperson to tell the truth, only saying she’s “sorry” for not being a “robot” like the “Democrat Party” — her favorite derogatory nickname for the Democratic Party.
Yet that attempt at a burn also failed miserably, as she is basically admitting that the Trump administration lies and Democrats tell the truth.
Predictably, even after the confirmation that Sanders is the pathological liar everyone already knew she was, the media still put her on air and allowed her to lie some more.
If the media were serious, they’d never let Sanders words appear on their airwaves or in print again.
