Thus far, White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, has been doing better than her predecessor, Sean Spicer. Until now.
Her slip-up during September 5th’s White House press briefing is one for the ages.
You have to see it. It’s amazing.
It’s only been a few months so far, but while she might regularly spew lies and try to defend Trump’s indefensible actions, she hasn’t quite lived up to the parade of gaffes that was Sean Spicer.
He was only the press secretary for six months, but in that time, he gifted us a veritable article’s worth of major fails.
From tweeting out his passwords to wearing mismatched shoes to sincerely retweeting The Onion, we could always look behind the White House press podium if we needed a good chuckle.
His whirlwind “career” as White House communications director only lasted 10 days, but it was…quite a 10 days.
Ever since then, things have pretty much just been normal bad.
It’s really disappointing.
Who will Melissa McCarthy even play this season on SNL?
Well, come to think of it, McCarthy could pull off a pretty good Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
And now, she has good reason to.
Huckabee Sanders finally gave us a worthy gaffe during September 5th’s White House press briefing.
You have to hear it to believe it.
“President Obama is laying out a responsible, 24-month phase out.” She continues to speak before she’s interrupted by reporters. She apologizes, saying, “Sorry, President Trump.”
Then, she smiles and laughs.
The craziest part is that it looks likes she’s reading from a piece of paper! Did someone prank her? Or was it a true Freudian slip?
“We all wish it was Obama,” this Twitter user wrote, echoing the sentiments of pretty much everyone.
Skip to 3:58 for the Huckabee Sanders section, but also watch the rest of it to hear Colbert’s spot-on Jeff Sessions and Trump impressions.
Following the clip of Huckabee Sanders “Obama” mention, Colbert simply says, “It’s OK. We’re sorry he’s president too.”
Though I don’t know why.
It’s not like Trump particularly likes to tell people they’re fired or anything…
We get it. You have to pretend to be on Trump’s side because you work for him. But now, there’s a crack in the foundation. Let it out, Sarah. We’re here for you.
An entire room of fancily dressed people is laughing at Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ “Obama” gaffe.
Wonder why. It might have something to do with the fact that Trump pushed birtherism for years and is spending his presidency trying to undo everything Obama did for the sole reason that he hates that a black man was president.
A moment of silence for Barack Obama, a truly incredible president whose good name was dragged through the mud when it was mistaken for that of a melting orange toddler.
We’ll be here with our hands over our mouths, awaiting what promises to be his totally childish response to Huckabee Sanders’ mistake.
In the meantime, Sarah, why don’t you give Spicey a call? He’s been through this before. He probably has some tips for ya.
