Donald Trump’s White House keeps turning into more of a ghost town as his top people keep resigning in controversy, and he struggles to find anyone to replace them. Trump’s former advisers and underlings keep cutting plea deals against him as well. Yet through it all, Sarah Huckabee Sanders continues to be one of the relatively few people to stand by him. Perhaps that’s because, as she just reminded us, she’s a nutjob.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who spends every day telling lies aimed at helping Donald Trump, and who supports his patently evil policies toward immigrants and the poor, has the nerve to call herself a “Christian.” Accordingly, she just did an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network. You can probably figure out where this is going.
Here’s what Sanders said to CBN: “I think God calls all of us to fill different roles at different times and I think that he wanted Donald Trump to become president.” Ah, so she thinks she has the ear of God. Someone should probably clue her in to the fact that’s not God talking to her; if anyone, it might perhaps be the Devil.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders can’t be bothered to hold more than the occasional White House press briefing these days, raising the question of how she’s actually spending her time as White House Press Secretary. Now we have our answer: she’s busy doing absurd interviews, and she’s going off the deep end in the process.
