Here’s The REAL REASON Sarah Sanders Is Leaving The Trump Administration

It was a surprise announcement, made late Thursday afternoon, and it was made by President Donald Trump via Twitter, which he often uses when he wants to announce something he’s too much of a coward to tell someone to their face:

But as it always the case with Donald Trump, there’s a whole lot more to the story than he’s willing to admit.


For her part, Sanders tried to put a happy face on the entire matter, telling NBC News:

“I feel like it’s important for the president to be able to put somebody in place as he moves into the campaign season.”

Ah yes, the campaign season. Trump is trying to get re-elected even though his poll numbers are dismal and he’s losing to nearly all of the top Democratic contenders; by a 13 full points to former Vice President Joe Biden.


And then we come to the disastrous interview Trump gave to George Stephanopoulos of ABC News. In that interview the president said there was nothing wrong with accepting negative information from a foreign country on an opponent.

As press secretary, Sarah Sanders had to have set up that ABC interview, and Fox News host Neil Cavuto is convinced that’s why Sanders got the boot. On his show Thursday, Cavuto noted:

“The timing of this is odd. Just after the George Stephanopoulos interview with the president, the hypothetical came up about accepting intelligence from a foreign source and the president, of course, reacted the way he did. He said yeah, I’d be open to it. Maybe he’s pointing the finger, why did you get me into this, Sarah Sanders?”

We’ve seen it a million times with Donald Trump. He expects absolute loyalty from those around him, but will instantly toss them under the bus to save his own ass. He got burned on the ABC interview, so Sanders is gone.

No one will miss Sarah Sanders, who lied almost as much as her boss. But her loyalty was rewarded with a knife in the back from Trump.

Donald Trump is a total and complete failure as a human being and as a president. He proves that each and every day in new and terrifying ways.

The Trump Adminstration WTF?!

Paid Liar Kellyanne Conway Says Hope Hicks Is Leaving Because She Misses New York (VIDEO)

If perhaps you were under the impression that White House Communications Director Hope Hicks is leaving the Trump administration because she cannot take the daily BS from Donnie Babyhands, Kellyanne Conway wants you to know it’s all much ado about nothing.

Appearing on Fox & Friends Thursday morning, Conway was asked by co-host Steve Doocy:

“Was it the ‘white lies’ thing? She couldn’t take the heat?”

Conway wasted no time spinning one lie after another, which she does almost as well as her boss, the Pathological Liar-in-Chief:

“This is very simple. Hope’s been doing this for three years nonstop. It’s very simple. I think the president spoke for all of us who have had the privilege of working with Hope and getting to know her as a friend, that she’s fantastic and she has done a tremendous job for him. And as the president says, [she] will probably be back in his orbit sometime and someday to help yet again.”


Notice how Kellyanne didn’t actually answer the question? She was just getting warmed up, and decided to add this:

“Hope’s a New Yorker. She got a great family she’s close to. And she has a wonderful future and we’re all excited to see. I love her and I’ll miss her very much.

“She had the luxury of not having to come on TV often. But I think we’ll hear from her. And one day when Hope Hicks sits down to give a major post-White House interview, millions of people will tune in and I’ll be one of them.”

Donald Trump’s a New Yorker, too. Is he about to resign? Oh please tell us it’s so, Kellyanne!

As for that post-White House interview, Ms. Hicks may be sitting for yet another long interview with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, too. And that could be very bad news for Trump, because Hicks knows things others in the White House don’t.

So bon voyage, Hope. See ya at the grand jury.

WATCH: ABC Host Slams Roy Moore Strategist For Calling Accusers Liars

A campaign official who works for GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore tried to assert that Moore’s accusers are all lying and got a firm slapdown from ABC News host Martha Raddatz Sunday on This Week.

Dean Young said the accusations against Moore don’t stand up to scrutiny:

“Their stories are falling apart. Accuser Beverly Young Nelson] told you one thing weeks ago and now — two days ago — she’s coming out with attorney Gloria Allred’s circus and saying, ‘Well you know, Judge Moore didn’t write all this [in her yearbook]’”

Raddatz retorted:

“You are talking about Beverly Young Nelson who alleges Moore groped her and bruised her next in the late 1970s when she was 16 years old. And as evidence of knowing him, she has been showing an inscription Moore made in her high school yearbook before the alleged assault.

“Does that mean the rest of it is a forgery?”

Rather than reply, Young again called the women accusing Moore liars:

“Well, let’s just put it this way. Somebody is not telling the truth and it’s not Judge Moore. Everybody in Alabama has known that Judge Moore has been telling the truth the whole time. And this is absolutely proof that this woman went on TV — national TV with Gloria Allred of all people, somebody from California trying to influence the elections in Alabama — went on TV and told the whole world that Judge Moore wrote all that and now she’s coming back three days before the election and saying, ‘I’m wrong. He didn’t write all of that.’”


Later in the interview, Raddatz inquired:

“Do you think these women all just made it up? Women in the Washington Post story didn’t even know each other.”

Clearly defensive, Young replied:

“I’m not sure why they did it. I don’t believe them and the people of Alabama don’t believe them. But I guess, you know, one of them was in Time magazine, one of them was on your show on Friday. Everybody wants to be on TV. Maybe that’s the reason.”

Raddatz then laid the atomic bomb of truth on Young, telling him:

“That yearbook, they have said that’s evidence. And 30 other people backed up those eight women in the Washington Post story.”

WATCH: GOP Strategist Slams Sarah Sanders As A ‘Serial, Congenital Liar’ With A ‘Husk’ For A Soul

On Monday, President Trump decided it would be fun to use the name “Pocahontas” for Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) during a White House ceremony for Navajo code talkers who were instrumental in the American effort in World War II.

Asked about Trump’s racist, derogatory remarks at the daily press briefing, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders doubled down on the attack, and that led CNN host Don Lemon to ask:

“How can Sarah Sanders stand there at the podium and say, ‘Oh it’s not a slur, the president doesn’t mean it as a slur.’”

Republican strategist Rick Wilson responded:

“Don, the reason she does that is because her job is contingent on her being a serial, congenital liar in defense of Donald Trump’s latest outrages. She probably has some tiny, shriveled husk left in her soul where she realizes this is the wrong thing to do, but she does it anyway because otherwise they’ll replace her.”


Trump defender Mike Shields tried to excuse what had transpired, saying that every press secretary advocates on the president’s behalf, but Wilson quickly shot Shields down:

“Few presidents go out and sling racial overt code words like that. Few presidents go out and crap on the dignity and legacy of people like these code talkers, these heroic veterans, and then send their press secretary out to answer questions in a way that isn’t saying, ‘Wow, the president regrets what he said today, he truly wishes he had not said that.’”

Wilson then let Trump and Sanders have it with both barrels, adding:

“Instead she goes out and tries to bury people in an avalanche of horseshit every day, because this is her job. I get that’s her job. The White House press secretary has to defend the indefensible. In very few other cases in our modern history, has the press secretary had to go out and defend someone who is slinging stuff that is demonstrably racially charged.”

Rick Wilson is 100 percent correct. Trump and his flunkies are engaging in the worst kind of divisive language and behavior imaginable. They attack people of color, women, and their political opponents with lies, insults, and venom. They are a clear and present danger to the health and well-being of the United States.

Did Donald Trump Have A Nervous Breakdown In 1990? Was He In A Mental Hospital?

If, like me, you’ve questioned the sanity of Donald Trump, then something suggested earlier this week by reporter Kurt Eichenwald suddenly takes on a greater relevancy: Eichenwald tweeted out and then deleted this choice nugget of information on Tuesday:

“I believe Trump was institutionalized in a mental hospital for a nervous breakdown in 1990, which is why he won’t release medical records.”

It should be noted that Eichenwald cited no supporting information, and the fact that he later deleted the tweet tells us that he must have realized he couldn’t back up his claim. But there’s a much larger point to be made in consideration of what Trump has been doing over the past several years: Lying and claiming that President Obama might not be an American citizen. This is how rumors become half-facts, and then conspiracies which are perpetuated and magnified on sites such as Breitbart, WorldNetDaily, and InfoWars, where the right-wing nutjobs gather to trade their fantastical yarns.

Back in 2016, in the heat of the election, Donald Trump stood before the media at his hotel in Washington, D.C. and announced:

“President Barack Obama was born in the United States. Period.”

This announcement came years after Trump first alleged that President Obama had been born in Kenya and was therefore ineligible to serve as head of state.


No apology was offered by Trump to the President, and he even went so far as to try and blame the existence of the birther movement on Hillary Clinton, yet another lie he has tossed around with zero proof over the years.

So, did Donald Trump have a nervous breakdown in 1990? I’m betting he did. Do I have any proof to base this on? Nope, and using the same logic Trump does, I don’t need any. I can just publish this article and let it float out into the internet where it will be shared and repeated thousands, perhaps millions of times. Because hey, why not?

If you’re as sick of Trump’s lies and hate speech as I am, then you know he deserves to be slagged just as much as he has tried to smear others for no better reason than his own personal amusement and to draw attention to himself.

I would also like Donald Trump to deny this: He is still on medication to prevent recurring psychotic episodes. In one of these episodes, he convinced himself he was qualified to be President of the United States. Clearly, the man is disturbed.

Donald, we await your denials and the other lies you will be telling in the days ahead. Don’t forget to take your meds.
