On Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was invited to go on “The View,” the nauseating daytime talk show which has become so difficult to watch in recent years that it’s a modern-day miracle it’s still on the air. As soon as Sanders sat down, co-hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg began to regret their decision to take on President Donald Trump’s feisty spokeswoman.
Sarah Sanders is used to putting liberal members of the mainstream media in their places. In fact, she’s perfected this craft ever since she began filling in for former press secretary Sean Spicer. Now that she’s the head honcho in the White House press room, Sanders runs a tight ship. She knows exactly what to say when progressive members of the press attack her with their partisan lines of questioning, and she’s developed quite the reputation for pulling their cards. Her appearance on “The View” Wednesday was no different, and it was a joy to watch her school the smug liberals who sit on daytime television’s most annoying panel.
Mike Huckabee’s no-nonsense daughter went head-to-head with Joy Behar regarding a bogus report that claims 95% of what President Donald Trump says is “not factual.”
“Is the media supposed to not report on the fact that 95% of what [Trump] says is a lie?” Behar asked Sanders. She was referring to a report by PolitiFact that falsely claims 95% of Trump’s statements are lies.
“The problem with that, Joy, is that you are doing exactly what we’re talking about and pushing a false narrative,” Sanders fired back. “95% of what the President says is not a lie,” she insisted.
“It’s not just the dreaded New York Times. It is other outlets that say it. 5% of his statements are true,” responded Behar. “I feel sorry for you that you have to go out and defend those lies every day.”

Apparently, Behar doesn’t know Sarah Huckabee Sanders very well because she’s not the type of wilting flower who needs obnoxious, self-important talk show hosts to feel sorry for her. She wasn’t about to fall for Behar’s pity party, and she let her have it.
“Again, I completely disagree with [you],” said Sanders, according to Hannity.com. “I know that is simply not accurate and I think that’s one of the dangers that we have right now. We are pushing so many false narratives every day, we’re creating false perceptions about the President, and frankly, inhibiting his ability to succeed,” she added.
“I think America should want him to succeed,” continued Sanders. “He is the President whether they voted for him or not, and I think that we have to get behind him. We should be championing for his success because his success is America’s success,” she concluded.
This earned enthusiastic applause from audience members, much to the dismay of liberal panel members Joy Behar and her buddy Whoopi Goldberg. Perhaps next time they’ll think twice before confronting Trump’s press secretary with misinformed reports from left-leaning websites. Honestly, 95% of what they report is a lie, just like when they said Trump had no chance of getting elected.
