‘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.

CNN Senior Congressional Correspondent:
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

Senior Writer at Shareblue:
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.

Revealed: Trump Paid Off Millions in Secret Debt to North Korea-Linked Company While in Office
There is a “chance” Donald Trump didn’t break the law by hiding debt from his 2016 presidential campaign’s financial disclosure reports, according to Forbes.
Documents obtained by the outlet show that the then-candidate failed to disclose $19.8 million in debt to Daewoo, a South Korean company with a history of ties to North Korea.
“There is a chance that Trump’s omission may have been legal,” the report said, noting that Trump may have used a loophole in the law.
“Although officials have to list personal loans on their financial disclosures, the law does not require them to include loans to their companies, unless they are personally liable for the loans. The Trump Organization documents do not specify whether the former president, who owned 100% of the entities responsible for the debt, personally guaranteed the liability, leaving it unclear whether he broke the law or merely took advantage of a loophole.”
Forbes also pointed out that Trump may have hidden the debt because Daewoo, at one time, “was the only South Korean company permitted to operate a business inside [North Korea].”
The documents, which were disclosed after being obtained by New York Attorney General Letitia James, said that Trump quickly eliminated the debt after taking office.
“Daewoo was bought out of its position on July 5, 2017,” one document explained.
‘Big Whop’: Even Right-Wing Critics Are Slamming Elon Musk’s ‘Underwhelming’ Hunter Biden Twitter Escapade
Right-wing Twitter users are weighing in to express their disapproval of the so-called bombshell “Twitter files” Elon Musk promised to deliver on Friday, December 2.
According to The Daily Beast, Musk was set to address Twitter’s decision to implement a policy that would restrict headlines and reports about Hunter Biden’s laptop from circulating on the social media platform. However, the leak ended up being a failure for many right-wing experts.
Sebastian Gorka, a right-wing radio host who previously served under the Trump administration, offered a critical response to Musk’s release after journalist Matt Taibbi shared a full Twitter thread about the findings.
“So far, I’m deeply underwhelmed,” Gorka said, adding, “We know the Dems in DC collude with the Dems in Palo Alto [Califonia]. Big Whop.”
He went on to reiterate his arguments when grilled by his far-right followers who were convinced that Musk’s Twitter files were some kind of “smoking gun.”
Per the news outlet: “Responding to a user claiming the Twitter company emails were ‘a clear violation of the 1st Amendment,’ the radio host fired back: ‘Err no, it’s not the DNC asking a private company to censor has nothing to do with the First Amendment.’”
Speaking to Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, New York Post columnist Miranda Devine also disapproved of the release. “I feel that Elon Musk has held back some material,” she alleged. According to The Beast, Devine also claimed: “sinister forces were perhaps controlling Musk after the Twitter chief took a meeting with Apple CEO Tim Cook earlier in the week.”
She added, “In particular, there’s a tweet in which Matt Taibbi says he hasn’t seen any evidence that law enforcement specifically warned off Twitter from our story. But that’s just not correct.”
Free Beacon reporter Joe Simonson also echoed similar sentiments on Twitter. “Twitter files [are] underwhelming so far,” Simonson tweeted. “Just revealing what we already knew: Twitter was staffed by democrats who did the bidding of Democrats.”
Fox News Chief Lachlan Murdoch to Be Deposed in $1.6 Billion Dominion Defamation Case
Lachlan Murdoch, the executive chairman and CEO of Fox News‘ parent company, Fox Corporation, is set to be deposed next week in a $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit. Dominion Voting Systems, which manufactures voting machines, claims the eldest Murdoch son and his father, Rupert Murdoch, have responsibility in Fox News promoting pro-Trump false election fraud claims it says has caused its company harm.
Murdoch is “scheduled to face questions from Dominion’s lawyers on Monday in Los Angeles, according to multiple reports, and will be the highest-ranking official at Fox to be deposed by Dominion,” The Hill reports.
Fox News propagandists Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson have already faced Dominion’s attorneys.
After a federal judge in June ruled the case could move forward, Law & Crime explained, “Dominion’s lawsuit contends that Rupert and his son Lachlan Murdoch personally caused Fox News to broadcast false claims about their role in the 2020 election, even though the Murdochs knew former President Donald Trump’s election fraud narrative was false.”
Rupert Murdoch reportedly spoke with Donald Trump just days after the 2020 presidential election to tell him he had lost.
Judge Eric M. Davis ruled there is “a reasonable inference that Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch either knew Dominion had not manipulated the election or at least recklessly disregarded the truth when they allegedly caused Fox News to propagate its claims about Dominion.”
“Dominion has successfully brought home actual malice to the individuals at Fox Corporation who it claims to be responsible for the broadcasts,” Judge Davis added, Law & Crime reported.
A federal judge has rejected Fox News’ First Amendment defense. The case is expected to be argued before a jury early next year.
