Sarah's story

April 19, 2019

I’m sure I’ll be asked about the foaming-at-the-mouth media demands that my daughter Sarah Huckabee Sanders resign as White House Press Secretary for allegedly “lying” to reporters.  It stems from a section of the Mueller report.  Here’s the story pure and simple:

 

She said at a press conference that “countless FBI agents had lost faith in (FBI Director James) Comey…” When Mueller asked her where she got the number “countless,” she said several had told her that, but the phrase “countless” wasn’t an exact number, thus she called it a “slip of the tongue.”  The other part of what the media is trying to gin up into a controversy, the phrase “made up from thin air,” was not her comment.  It was the characterization of the investigator writing the report.  That is NOT her quote, although the media are treating it as such. 

 

FBI agents (former and current) did express their disgust with Comey, but the investigators took Sarah’s use of the word “countless” and tried to snare her, saying she couldn’t say “countless.”  Real reporters might have settled this by asking some former and current FBI agents their opinion of Comey.  I'm sure they'd get an earful.

 

So to sum up: alleged “professional journalists” who have just spent the past two years dividing Americans and undermining trust in the White House and our election system by blaring at us around the clock that President Trump colluded with Russia and was going to be arrested at any minute – and who are even now promoting the nonsense that he’s guilty of obstructing justice, when all he ever did was complain and think about replacing people he thought were abusing their power (but he didn’t do it and instead cooperated fully) – are now claiming that my daughter doesn’t deserve to hold her job because she allegedly misled them by using one word that wasn’t literally true, depending on your interpretation. 

 

If that’s the standard we hold press secretaries to, then what are the standards for “professional journalists?”  Because I think an awful lot of them need to switch to the food service industry.

    Gov. Huckabee, I read your articles quite often and I appreciate your even-handed approach to the news of the day. I've never commented here before, however this story both boils my blood and saddens me at the same time. You should never be faced with the need to defend your daughter, who is unbelievably intelligent, quick witted and sharp on her feet. I am sorry both you and her are met with such dishonesty and disdain, but know that millions of people like me appreciate what she does every single day when she goes out there against the horrible media.

  • Bob Mrva

    I have the utmost respect for your daughter. I don't know how she does it. Governor, I would suggest you change the last sentence in your article; "Because I think an awful lot of them need to switch to the food service industry." . We don't want that. They'll contaminate that also. They should change to cleaning human, bovine and equestrian waste. That's what they generate the most of.

    When she said "countless" in the press room, the professional journalists should have asked, "could you be more specific". They were too busy writing, "anonymous sources"!

  • Don Dixon

    04/19/2019 03:16 PM

    Mike, I think you should examine yourself. Why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye but don’t notice the log in your own eye? Hypocrite! In my opinion, your daughter has a "lying tongue." She lied about another person to others and it affected that person's reputation.

  • Stephen Emmert

    04/19/2019 03:14 PM

    Not to worry Huck, the media at this point has zero credibility with the citizenry. Your daughter has a very difficult job, that she performs very well, dealing with the onslaught of this hateful dishonest group day after day. Most Americans respect her dedication to America and the President. May GOD bless you and your family in great measure.

    Just a lot of wasted time at how they nitpick at whatever the conservatives say ... twisting and turning the words until they can get the worst possible take on them. BUT it doesn’t bother them at all the real lies the mainstream media tells. Sarah, don’t let them get to you....you are doing a GREAT job !!

  • Wanda L Ingraham

    You are so right!!! What about all the lying the Democrats and the media have done for the past 3 years +!!! Sarah has done a fantastic job of going into the lions den everyday...Thank you for your commentaries, they are one of the few that can be trusted for TRUTH!!

    04/19/2019 02:14 PM

    Please, the media lies, outright, day after day. They never take it back. Sara MISSPOKE. What is hard to understand? Makes complete sense. If anyone talked to the FBI , if they could trust the media, many of them are real glad Comey is gone. Very very glad. They can not trust the media so they might not tell if they want to keep their jobs. Sara does the best job! I just love her. I hope she knows how much she is respected. God bless her. Please tell her we believe her.

  • Sharon Hayden

    04/19/2019 02:06 PM

    the uh so-called media lies every day and that is okay? I don't think so. Sarah is strong and correct. the lame stream media is despicable...EVERYday. They should be the ones to resign for journalistic malfeasance. And if the whole FBI was polled individually, the number would be VERY high and she would be right...as usual
