Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a PK or preacher’s kid. Her father is both a former governor and a former presidential candidate. As such, people might imagine that she would keep a closer grip on the truth, but sadly that has not been the case. Her lies have been getting more morbid recently.
CNN’s political analyst April Ryan and Sanders have a long-standing feud. Last week Ryan called for the White House Secretary to be fired after the Mueller report revealed Sanders’ lies to the FBI. It read, according to NBC News:
‘Sanders lied when she said “countless” FBI agents contacted her to support President Trump’s firing of James Comey.’
In a CNN interview on Erin Burnett OutFront, Ryan called for firing Sanders:
‘Not only does she not have credibility, she lied. She should be let go. She should be fired, end of story. When there is a lack of credibility there, you have to start and start lopping the heads off. It’s Fire-Me Thursday or Fire-Me Good Friday. She needs to go.’
Sanders compounded her lying as Fox & Friends asked her about Ryan:
‘I have had reporters say a lot of things about me. They’ve said I should be choked. They’ve said I should deserve a lifetime of harassment. I certainly never had anybody say I should be decapitated — this takes us to a new low even for the liberal media. I think it just once again proves why this journalist isn’t taken seriously.’
Of course, Sanders knew that Ryan was speaking metaphorically. The press secretary chose to play ignorant of the journalist’s meaning. It was just another Sanders lie.
Later, the press secretary added:
‘I think our team needs to remain focused on how we keep pushing those things that actually help Americans and not engage in these petty fights with journalists that again shouldn’t be taken seriously. I don’t think are taken seriously and looking for couple more minutes on TV. Frankly I feel sorry for them. They lost the collusion battle.’

Former governor Huckabee sent out a tweet asking:
‘So liberals—is this okay? Does CNN have the integrity to deal w/ this incitement to murder? CNN’s April Ryan Says Sarah Sanders’ Head Should Be “Lopped Off”‘
Ryan came down hard on the press secretary’s father. She suggested that he “sit down.” In other words, he needed to take a breather. The Ryan-Sanders feud reached an all-time high after Huckabee turned the political analyst’s metaphor of “lopping the heads off” into “incitement of murder.” Of course, Ryan was referring to her hope that this communications head be fired for her false statements to the White House reporters.
Ryan responded with a tweet of her own to Huckabee saying “do you even remember Jesus:”
‘By the way you should be celebrating Good Friday or do you even remember Jesus anymore? He would not come down from the cross just to save himself! He decided to die…’
Huckabee should have read the entire Ryan comment before rushing off to accuse the journalist of “inciting violence.” He was defending his daughter, but he was also following the Donald Trump line of thinking that the press was the enemy of the people.
