Sean Spicer Says ‘Sarah Sanders Understands What the President Wants’ and ‘Communicates His Thoughts’

She sure does that.

In an interview on Tuesday, Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer had expressed praise for current White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Sanders previously worked under Spicer as Deputy Press Secretary until Spicer’s resignation. The kind words for his replacement come almost exactly a year after she was appointed:

I think Sarah has done a great job of making sure that she understands what the president wants. That was a challenge for me at the beginning. [Trump’s] an unconventional candidate and president. He’s a disrupter, and we were trying to adapt. And I think [Sanders] has done a good job of adapting to what he wants her to do and say and communicate his thoughts.

It’s a frequent observation that obeying Trump’s orders requires Sanders to lie to the press, something she’s known to do. Spicer’s tenure as Press Secretary was swollen with lies as well, starting right after President Donald Trump’s inauguration:

This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period, both in-person and around the globe

Spicer made the claims despite photographic evidence and lower public transportation usage the morning of the inauguration. He would frequently be skewered after the comments and onward, most famously by Melissa McCarthy on SNL. In Tuesday’s interview, Spicer expressed regret for the crowd size comments.

Though Americans on Twitter tend not to be fans of Huckabee Sanders, they’re not willing to forgive Spicer any time soon.

The lies have battered both of their reputations.
