Sarah Huckabee Sanders has done a lot of ridiculous things during her tenure as White House Press Secretary. Just last weekend she managed to completely misunderstand middle-school level mathematics. One of her latest ridiculous moves involves Dumb and Dumber. No, we're not talking about any of the people currently employed in government. We're talking about the classic 1994 comedy film starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels. Yes, really.
Earlier this week, Sanders took to Twitter to share a Washington Post article.
The real Russia scandal? Clinton campaign paid for the fake Russia dossier, then lied about it & covered it up. https://t.co/kR8z2zsZ7Q— Kayleigh McEnany (@Kayleigh McEnany)1508889898.0
It's not surprising that Sanders tweeted about the infamous document being funded by Clinton and the DNC. But the actual source she chose to retweet is interesting.
@PressSec @washingtonpost .@PressSec, this afternoon: "I wouldn't use the Washington Post as my source" @PressSec… https://t.co/v4LtgnvXw3— Mark Berman (@Mark Berman)1508890500.0
Can you say, "awkward"? It's not like the Washington Post was the only outlet reporting on this particular bit of news.So which is it, Sarah Huckabee Sanders? Should we not be paying attention to the Washington Post, or are they actually totally legit? Or is it one of those "do as I say, not as I do" kinda things? We know what you're thinking. Hypocrisy? In the White House?! Say it ain't so!
Sanders wasn't about to let Mark Berman get the best of her, though. She crafted what we can only assume she thought was the perfect response: A clip from Dumb and Dumber.
