Sarah Huckabee Sanders Lands New Gig as a Fox News Contributor



Sarah Huckabee Sanders is the second former Trump White House press secretary to land a new gig in two days. Huckabee Sanders, who left the White House after saying she just woke up one day and decided that would be the day to quit, will join Fox News as a political contributor.

CNN senior media reporter Oliver Darcy was first to break the news:

On Wednesday ABC announced the Trump White House’s first press secretary, Sean Spicer, will be a contestant on “Dancing With the Stars.”

Huckabee Sanders has been weighing a run for governor of Arkansas. It’s unclear if this new move puts that on hold – or is a means of increasing her public profile for a run.

Both former press secretaries have left long legacies of lying to the American public in service to Trump.

McEnany Scorched for Hypocrisy After Calling Miles Taylor a ‘Coward’ and a ‘Two-Faced Liar’ Pushing His Own Agenda



White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany is once again under fire for her hypocrisy after attacking Miles Taylor. The former Homeland Security chief of staff for months has been criticizing the Trump administration, and today acknowledged he is “Anonymous,” the author of the bombshell 2018 New York Times op-ed revealing a small cadre of administration officials were working, he claimed, to protect America from Trump’s worst impulses.

“Miles Taylor, who now admits to being ‘Anonymous,’ once told us he was NOT Anonymous,” McEnany blared on Twitter. “He LIED! This is everything people hate about Washington — two-faced liars who push their own agendas at the expense of the People. This is the epitome of the swamp!”

She also issued a lengthy statement she submitted to the White House press pool calling Taylor a “coward,” and an “arrogant deep state operative.”

McEnany is President Donald Trump’s fourth press secretary, and while it is a crowded field she is by far the one who lies the most. Infamously, on her first day she promised reporters she would never lie to them in the beginning of her press briefing. Minutes later, she lied.

Many Americans see McEnany as a two-faced liar who pushes Trump’s agenda at the expense of the people.

On social media she was quickly scorched.

Devin Nunes ‘Lied to the American People’: Hometown Newspaper Whacks GOP Congressman for Betrayal



Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) was scorched by his hometown newspaper in an editorial blasting the Trump supporter for his “betrayal.”

“Kiev, Ukraine, is nearly 6,200 miles from Tulare, Calif. That’s a long way from home for Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Tulare, who now faces explosive allegations that he and his staff contacted shadowy Ukrainian figures in an effort to betray American democracy,” The Fresno Bee noted. “Text messages released by the House Intelligence Committee last week reveal that a top Nunes aide named Derek Harvey – who on Trump’s National Security Council before he joined Nunes’ staff – sought direct contact with Ukrainian officials in an effort to smear former Vice President Joe Biden.”

Nunes, the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, has been a leading defender of the president.

“For months, Nunes has acted as Trump’s attack dog, defending the president from accusations that he pressured Ukraine to investigate Biden. Nunes sat in House Intelligence Committee meetings and derided the impeachment proceedings against Trump as a ‘hoax.’ Yet he was sitting on a ticking time bomb the entire time. The newly-released texts prove … that Nunes’ staff also engaged in secret efforts to damage Biden,” the newspaper noted. “Nunes knew the Ukraine allegations were true because his office was involved in the same plot. But he used his position in Congress as a platform to spread lies and mislead the public.”

The editorial declared that it is “undeniable” that the Fresno Republican lied.

“Regardless of whether you lean Democratic or Republican, here’s an undeniable fact: Nunes lied. He lied to the American people and to his own constituents about the Ukraine allegations, dismissing them although he knew they were true. He deliberately misled the American people by attempting to undermine impeachment hearings that examined an anti-Biden effort in which his own office had direct involvement,” The Bee noted. “Even if you support President Trump, there’s no denying the fact that Nunes’ actions have backfired and will only hurt Trump. Knowing his own staff was neck-deep in an effort to smear Biden using foreign contacts, Nunes should have let someone else play defense.”

The newspaper seemed to conclude it is time for Nunes to leave Congress.

“Devin Nunes has betrayed the truth, betrayed the trust of voters and, quite possibly, betrayed our country. We don’t know exactly where this new evidence will lead, or what fate has in store for Nunes, but we do know this: The people of California’s 22nd congressional district deserve better,” The Bee wrote.

Attorney Releases Video of Trump Talking With Giuliani Henchman Lev Parnas – Mocks Him for Saying ‘I Don’t Know Him at All’



The attorney representing indicted former Giuliani henchman Lev Parnas has been taunting various members of the Trump administration, given the massive amount of documentation his client has provided him.

Thursday afternoon Joseph Bondy posted video of his client, Lev Parnas, standing directly next to and talking with President Donald Trump at the president’s Mar-a-Lago resort.

Bondy took the opportunity to mock the President too, calling him “the ‘I don’t know him at all, don’t know what he’s about, don’t know where he comes from, know nothing about him’ guy.”

Earlier Thursday Trump strongly insisted he did not know Parnas at all.

“I don’t know who this man is,” Trump said, as Politico reported. “Oftentimes I’ll be taking a picture with somebody and say, I wonder what newspaper that one will appear in. I don’t know him. Perhaps he’s a fine man. Perhaps he’s not. I know nothing about him.”

At one point in the video Parnas even puts his hand on Trump’s back.
