Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01

“How can I tell if my Labrador is male or female?” “Easy: you suck. Next”

She’s gonna be sorely missed—by me and Roger Kimball, at the very least.

Donald Trump, the president of the United States, announced yesterday on Twitter that Sarah Huckabee Sanders, White House press secretary, would be departing her job at the end of the month. He later, at a press conference about a new program to help felons reenter the work force, praised her as a ‘magnificent person’ who has done ‘an incredible job.’ Taking the podium, Ms Sanders expressed her admiration for the president and his agenda and said, tears in her eyes, that working for him had been ‘the honor of a lifetime.’

I greatly admire Sarah Sanders. I think she is a breath of fresh air. Obviously loyal to the president and enthusiastically supportive of his agenda, she did what any good press secretary does: she was an effective ambassador of the president and his agenda to a hostile country, the media. She was there partly to explain policy but also, and just as important, to smooth ruffled feathers, cater to feelings of self importance, and spin questions and objections in a direction favored by the president. She helped to provide the most flattering light for his policies and pronouncements. That’s what press secretaries do.

Many of the press reports about Sanders’s departure accused her of lying. It is certainly true that this press secretary, like every other press secretary in the annals of history, spun things for the benefit of the president. Had she not done this, she would not have been doing her job. That said, I thought Sanders was as candid as the the job permitted, not less so than other incumbents of that august office, and much more truthful than the lying press that presumed to criticize her for dishonesty.

Yep. Which is a YUUUGE part of why they hate her. They would have in any event, of course; aside from that yawning, unflattering-to-them honesty gap, she worked for a non-Marxist administration headed by an outsider they hate worse than cancer, AIDS, and the shingles combined. Worse yet, she neither flattered them, sucked up to them, nor took one second’s worth of bullshit off their worthless asses. As Roger says, she was damned good at her job; Trump’s next press sec will have some mighty big shoes to fill. Hopefully, Trump will find someone even more cantankerous and intolerant of Leftymedia nonsense to replace her. Meanwhile, Bill provides this hilarious vid by way of farewell:

Word is Sanders is mulling a run for governor of Arkansas; I wish her nothing but success with that, or whatever else she may choose to take on next.
