'Left No Lie Untold, No Bond of Trust Unbroken, No American Value Untwisted'
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is leaving the White House, according to President Donald Trump, and many across the Twitterverse could not be more happy or more relieved.
Sanders will forever be remembered as a liar, which was even documented in the Mueller report. Sanders was forced to admit under penalty f perjury that she lied when she falsely told reporters from the White House press briefing room podium that many FBI agents had told her they were grateful Trump fired Jim Comey.
“I’ve heard from countless members of the FBI that are grateful and thankful for the president’s decision,” Huckabee Sanders told reporters. “Between emails, text messages, absolutely,” she doubled down when pressed.
That was a lie, and one of many Huckabee Sanders has told in her role.
Former George W. Bush White House Communications Director, now an MSNBC anchor and the network's chief political analyst, Nicolle Wallace, noting Huckabee Sanders was appearing with the President, "as she says goodbye to a White House press briefing room she rarely visited."
Perhaps one of the most relieved is a former federal government spokesperson. Matthew Miller, who served as communications director at the Dept. of Justice during the Obama administration and as Attorney General Eric Holder's spokesperson did not hold back.
Good riddance. She had the most important spokesperson job in the world and used it to lie repeatedly to the the American people. I hope shame and stigma follow her the rest of life. https://t.co/6WZ4KuA4IT

This professor of international relations, political scientist, and journalist sums up Sanders' tenure:
Sarah Sanders should leave the White House confident that she left no lie untold, no bond of trust unbroken, no American value untwisted, no obligation to the people not subordinated to her loyalty to her boss, no hypocrisy unexplored. As a failure, she was complete.

Here's a noted writer for The Atlantic:
Sarah Sanders was a shameless and consistent liar as press secretary but she did give a lot of background quotes falsely denying things or attacking Trump’s critics that reporters liked to tweet out as “from a senior administration official” so she wasn’t all bad.

As Sarah Sanders leaves, the last WH press briefing was 94 days ago, the longest stretch of time.
In the pass 100 days, only one White House briefing was held. In the past 200 days, only four briefings were held. In the past 300 days, 8 briefings were held, per @AlliemalCNN

Dear all media/entertainment outlets... do not have Sarah Sanders on your show. Do not put her on Dancing With the Stars. Do not have her surprise the audience at the Emmys. Do not invite her on to Saturday Night Live. The danger she has put our country in must not be overlooked.

ICYMI, my @PacificStand piece on Sarah Sanders, who regularly lied from the WH podium, recited misleading chain e-mails about taxes, and otherwise treated reporters with contempt. https://t.co/vaIgG9cEuc https://t.co/Eqcvhbpemr

Considering Sarah Sanders hasn’t held a press briefing in three months, will anyone notice that she’s gone when the next liar comes in? https://t.co/PUFzZbEEPd

Sarah Sanders shut down the press briefing, made reporters sit in the driveway, and repeatedly lied to the world. The @whca loved her nonetheless. You can't have a villain without henchmen, and the mainstream media answered the call repeatedly.
