Gov. Mike Huckabee loves his daughter, Sarah Sanders, like a father should. While she’s a fierce opponent on her own, no dad in this world is going to let some whiny liberal clown threaten his little girl — no matter her age.
That’s exactly what happened recently when a Washington Post reporter “fact-checked” Sarah Sanders.
After CNN’s Jim Acosta, who remains bitter after being heckled by the same Trump supporters CNN and Acosta have spent years smearing as Nazis and racists, repeatedly whined at Thursday’s White House press briefing over the way President Trump treats the media, Sanders said:
It’s ironic, Jim, that not only you and the media attack the President for his rhetoric when they frequently lower the level of conversation in this country. Repeatedly — repeatedly — the media resorts to personal attacks without any content other than to incite anger.
The media has attacked me personally on a number of occasions, including your own network; said I should be harassed as a life sentence; that I should be choked. ICE officials are not welcome in their place of worship, and personal information is shared on the Internet. When I was hosted by the Correspondents’ Association, of which almost all of you are members of, you brought a comedian up to attack my appearance and called me a traitor to my own gender.
In fact, as I know — as far as I know, I’m the first Press Secretary in the history of the United States that’s required Secret Service protection.
The far-left Washington Post fact checked White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and smeared her as a liar because “wringing” her neck is different from “choking” her.
In a reaction piece, WaPo’s Aaron Blake, a left-wing columnist who considers the harassment of Trump supporters “understandable,” blasted away at Sanders Thursday after she calmly listed the horrors she and other Trump officials have dealt with due to an increasingly rabid establishment media.
Among other furious acts of parsing, Blake scolded Sanders by explaining that “choking” Sander Sanders is not the same as “wringing” her neck.
“MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace … didn’t call for choking Sanders,” WaPo writes, “but instead asked a reporter if she ever want to ‘wring’ Sanders’s neck out of frustration.”
That’s when Gov. Mike Huckabee stepped in with a tweet of his own:
WAPO's Aaron Blake claims @PressSec lied about MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace calling for “choking” her, because Wallace said “wring her neck,” & not same as being choked. Mr. Blake: Let me wring your neck, then choke you. You tell me if you feel a difference.

Share this all over if you’re proud of The Huckster for stepping in and defending his daughter from the hateful, violent liberal media!
