It's been months since former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined a long line of ex-White House officials in resigning to—allegedly—spend more time with her family.
Unlike some of her colleagues, Sanders remains one of President Donald Trump's most vocal allies, despite being a private citizen.
Now—as her former boss predicted—Sanders is reportedly making moves to follow in her father's footsteps as governor of Arkansas.
In a New York Times profile published on Sunday, Sanders said she felt like she'd "been called" to run for office, but another quote featured in the interview is standing out for all the wrong reasons.
Lamenting the insults she faced during her tenure at the White House, Sanders opened up about the one that bothered her the most:
“I don’t like being called a liar. The other stuff bothered me far less.”
The problem? Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a liar.
Sanders infamously claimed during a rare White House press briefing that "countless members of the FBI" told her they no longer had faith in former director James Comey, whom Trump unceremoniously fired. Sanders said this more than once but, with the release of the Mueller Report, that was discovered to be a lie—or, as Sanders called it, a "slip of the tongue."
"Sanders told this Office that her reference to hearing from 'countless members of the FBI' was a 'slip of the tongue.' She also recalled that her statement in a separate press interview that rank-and-file FBI agents had lost confidence in Comey was a comment she made 'in the heat of the moment' that was not founded on anything."
That was just one instance of the numerous times Sarah Sanders lied to the press.
People weren't hesitant to call her the name she detested most.
