WILL SARAH SANDERS REPLACE SEAN SPICER?
The real question is, will we be able to tell the difference?
In the two days since FBI Director James Comey’s dismissal, Sarah Huckabee Sanders has stood in for often-embattled White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, and her performances have already drawn fire on the internet.
But Sanders has not looked rattled under the spotlight, and Spicer’s job security has been questioned after reports surfaced that he had a “meltdown” in the wake of Comey’s sudden firing Tuesday.
[…] Sanders on Thursday touched on topics such as whether Comey’s forced departure had anything to do with the FBI’s investigation into possible Trump campaign collusion with Russia during the 2016 election; Comey’s reputation within the FBI; Trump’s reasons for firing him; and why the photographer for Russia’s U.S. ambassador and foreign minister was allowed into the Oval Office on Wednesday during a meeting and American news photographers were not.
Sanders charged through her answers, along the way repeating many of the questionable mantras the administration has used throughout its first four months in office and since Comey’s firing.
She was accused of lying in relation to Trump’s assertion Wednesday that he would’ve fired Comey even if Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had recommended Comey keep his job.
It’s not as if Spicer’s been avoiding controversy. Most recently, he came under fire after Syria used chemical weapons on its own citizens, for stating that Adolf Hitler didn’t even go so far. That led to an outcry and calls for his dismissal.
“Trump doesn’t like his people to look weak,” a Trump donor was quoted as saying. Perhaps Sanders would be more to the president’s liking.
Meanwhile, this was Fuckwad’s response (by tweet, of course):
As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with perfect accuracy!
After all, it’s not like that’s their job!
