It wasn't long until the now-former White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, used her last official day at work to snap back at Ocasio-Cortez.

Considering that Huckabee Sanders hadn't held a White House Press Briefing in over 100 days (the press briefings had been a daily affair for decades), many thought it was absurd that she'd accuse Ocasio-Cortez of "phoning it in."

Sarah Sanders's tenure as press secretary may have come to an end, but it looks like her stances and willingness to lie won't be going anywhere soon.
