Twitter points out the irony of Sarah Sanders telling Democrats to ‘quit lying’

In the wake of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony before Congress, former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders took to her official Twitter account and slammed Democrats, accusing them of of having a trait that she’s famous for.

“Almost feel sorry for the Democrats: they said [Trump] would lose-he won; said he’d ruin our economy-it’s booming; and when all else failed said he’s a traitor! when in fact he’s a patriot making America great again,” Sanders tweeted.

“Maybe Dems should just quit lying and do their jobs,” she added.

The irony of Sanders telling other people to stop lying wasn’t lost on most people, as evidenced by the comment thread that opened up beneath her tweet.

Sanders’ penchant for lying to the media on behalf of President Trump is well known. Speaking to USA Today last month, journalism professor and media critic Jay Rosen said Sanders “presided over the destruction of one of the grand stages of the American presidency, and one of the great platforms for the projection of United States power: the White House briefing room.”
