It's been a little over six months since Sarah Huckabee Sanders amiably left her post as President Donald Trump's White House Press Secretary, but that hardly means she's stopped misleading the American people in defense of the President.
But instead of doing it on the taxpayers' dime, she's defending her old boss on his favorite network, Fox News.
The claims she makes, however, are just as outrageous as those she used to spout from the podium.
As Democratic lawmakers prepare to vote on a War Powers Resolution aimed at hindering Trump's ability to further escalate skyrocketing tensions with Iran, Sanders said in a Fox and Friendsinterview that she "couldn't think of anything dumber" than giving Congress the power to determine whether or not the country goes to war.

"You know, I can't think of anything dumber than allowing Congress to take over our foreign policy. They can't seem to manage to get much of anything done. I think the last thing we want to do is push powers into Congress' hands and take them away from the president."
What idiots had the idea of giving Congress the power to declare war? The founding fathers.
Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution says:
"The Congress shall have Power To...declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water."
While the President is Commander in Chief of the military, he or she does not have the power to declare war or to federalize state militias.
Sarah Sanders apparently forgot this detail.
