Wasn’t it bad enough for Arkansas to have had Mike Huckabee as Governor for 11 years? Huck’s Horrible Spawn aka Sarah Huckabee Sanders has announced she’s running for Governor as an unrepentant Trumper. Does that mean that she’s down with the Dipshit Insurrection?
Sarah Huckabee Sanders, President Donald Trump’s former White House press secretary, announced in a video her gubernatorial campaign in Arkansas on Monday morning.
“With the radical left now in control of Washington, your governor is your last line of defense,” Sanders said. “In fact, your governor must be on the front line. So today I announce my candidacy for governor of Arkansas.”
The former Trump official railed against “socialism” and painted herself as a victim of “the far left and their allies at CNN and the New York Times.”
Poor Arkansas. I’m old enough to remember when they had a string of good Democratic governors: Dale Bumpers, David Pryor, and Bill Clinton. Two of them became long serving US senators and I think you know what happened with the other guy.
As you may recall, Sarah Sanders was a terrible and mendacious press secretary in the “proud” tradition of her predecessor Sean Spicer. She’s trying to make like Gum Spice and fail upward into the Arkansas governor’s mansion.
In 2017, I wrote a post about Huckabee Sanders called Ron Ziegler In A Frock. Here’s what I had to say about her then:
Sarah Huckabee Sanders (hereinafter Huck’s Horrible Spawn) is well on her way to becoming the most hated White House press secretary since Ziegler; even the dread Ari Fleischer had his supporters. Huck’s Horrible Spawn clearly knows nothing about what’s going on in the White House she pretends to speak for. Today she urged ESPN to fire Jemele Hill for criticizing her boss on the sacred tweeter tube. Apparently, Trump is the only one who can fire off insulting tweets. So much for free speech.
Huck’s Horrible Spawn also dusted off her non-existent law degree and proclaimed James Comey a criminal. This is simultaneously ludicrous and menacing. The White House is threatening its opponents with jail or, in the case, of Ms. Hill, loss of her livelihood. This is a classic authoritarian move, which is why I originally called this post Creeping Authoritarianism. The image of Ron Ziegler in a frock is much funnier. And we need all the comic relief we can get in the Trump era.
I stand by what my 2017 self wrote. I should thank Huck’s Horrible Spawn for giving me an excuse to recycle my old work, but I’d prefer not to think of her at all. Ugh, just ugh.
The last word goes to Chris Stapleton:
