It’s easy to see why Sarah Huckabee Sanders wants the TV cameras off during her White House news briefings.
There is, for one, the matter of her boss constantly proclaiming things that range from the inexplicable to the patently wrong. There’s also the metastasizing Russia scandal, which keeps rendering previous Trump … statements inoperative, as Richard Nixon press secretary Ron Ziegler used to say.
But above all is a more simple explanation: Sanders has no earthly idea what’s going on in the White House she purports to represent.
Even though they’re hard to beat if you love buffoons and grifters, it gets a little tiresome and repetitive running cartoons every week aimed at Donald Trump and his immediate family. That’s especially true when you realize just how many clowns have actually degraded themselves to work for Trump.
That certainly includes the sock puppet otherwise known as Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who some people allege is an actual human being. One wonders if they’ve ever had to sit through one of her robotic performances.
Whether they have or not, her knowledge of what’s actually going on in the White House was discussed earlier this week by Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank in that column excerpted above. You can read the entire column here if you want.
The column pairs nicely with our toon of the week from Ann Telnaes, whose editorial animations and cartoons are featured in a variety of different newspapers. You can also visit her web site here.
Our runner-up for the week comes from Chip Bok. Just remember, folks, it’s not going to happen because Donald Trump promised it wouldn’t in one of those tweets of his.
