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.
