Sarah Huckabee Sanders has decided to bring herself back into the light at the strangest time for a former Press Secretary tied to a president who just left office in shame, and under a cloud of suspicion. Apparently, Sanders has completely forgotten that nobody really liked her when she was here the last time, she was arguably Trump’s most despised Press Secretary besides McEnany, who was just as big of a liar as Sanders. But, regardless of Trump’s impending impeachment trial, or the fact that she’s known far and wide as a woman who can lie without a flicker of shame reaching her vacant, crooked eyes, Sanders has staffers who have reached out to the media for some attention.
Sarah Sanders, Donald Trump’s former chief spokeswoman and one of his closest aides, is running for Arkansas governor, a senior campaign official told The Associated Press.
Sanders, who left the White House in 2019 to return to her home state, planned to announce her bid on Monday, according to the campaign official who spoke Sunday night on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly ahead of the formal announcement.
What does this country ass Clown need to be Governor of anything for? I thought we had all agreed that the Trump people should go away forever and ever and never come back?
The daughter of former Gov. Mike Huckabee, Sanders had been widely expected to run for the office after leaving the White House — and Trump publicly encouraged her to make a go. She’s been laying the groundwork for a candidacy, speaking to GOP groups around the state.
Sanders joins an expensive Republican primary that already includes two statewide elected leaders, Lt. Gov. Tim Griffin and Attorney General Leslie Rutledge. The three are running to succeed current Gov. Asa Hutchinson, a Republican who is unable to run next year due to term limits. No Democrats have announced a bid to run for the seat.
Please don’t tell me this is going to become a thing and Ivanka will end up being President one day. This is literally the one thing that will force me to move to Canada forever. I just can’t.
Sanders launched her bid weeks after a riot by Trump’s supporters at the U.S. Capitol left five people dead. More than 130 people have been charged in the insurrection, which was aimed at halting the certification of President Joe Biden’s win over Trump…
Trump truly hired all the worst people in the world, it’s almost like he never did any of the hiring for his own business himself, so when he was finally able to choose his own staff, he had no idea what qualities to look for. Or maybe he likes people who are just as nasty and dishonest as he is. Either way, they deserved each other. But, do the people of Arkansas deserve Sarah Huckabee Sanders? I know they voted for Trump, but honestly, she is the absolute worst, and she’ll be spreading lie-abetes all over the state. Why should she be allowed to run an entire state after her shitty performance in Washington? Personally, I think it all comes back to the fact that we shouldn’t reward people for working for the absolute worst President in history, especially when they sucked at their job.
Trump’s tumultuous exit from the presidency may do little damage to Sanders in Arkansas. Republicans hold all of Arkansas’ statewide and federal seats, as well as a solid majority in both chambers of the Legislature.
Griffin and Rutledge have combined raised more than $2.8 million in the race, which could get even more crowded. Republican state Sen. Jim Hendren, who is also a nephew of Hutchinson’s, is considering a run.
Arkansas, you in danger, girl.
I don’t know which one of these GOP cats can beat Sanders at the ballot box, especially if King Trump decides to throw his weight behind his protégé, and I don’t want to think about him playing the role of puppet master. If Trump manages to gain control of states via handpicked Governors who are loyal to him, we may see even more trouble for the Democratic Party in red states. We have the opportunity to expand due to Trump’s incitement of an Insurrection, so it sure would be a shame to lose out on our chance to gain ground due to these red states having Trump acolytes at the helm. I’ll keep my eye on this race, and keep you informed.
