A Huckabee stands in for Sean Spicer as White House spokesperson and claims that James Comey committed "atrocities." Wait, what?

Courtesy of Newsweek: 

Before President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday, he had wanted to do so “since the day he was elected,” Deputy White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said during Wednesday’s press briefing. 

Comey’s firing, which the White House blamed on his supposed mishandling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, dominated Wednesday’s press briefing. Earlier in the day, Trump clarified the reason for Comey’s termination, saying: "He wasn't doing a good job. Very simply. He was not doing a good job." 

Sanders offered few new details about the events that led to Comey’s firing, but at one point described Comey’s handling of the Clinton emails as an example of the “atrocities” he committed as director. “Once you take over leading the department of just, that’s very different from being a candidate in a campaign,” she said. “I think also having a letter like the one he received and having that conversation that outlined the basic, just, atrocities in circumventing the chain of command in the Department of Justice.”

Look I have been just as critical of James Comey as probably anybody, but even I have not labeled anything that he has done as an "atrocity."

And as for Trump wanting to fire Comey "since the day he was elected," how does the Huckabee spawn explain this:
You don't typically blow kisses to folks you are planning to get rid of, unless of course you are a Mafioso or something.

So if you are wondering why there was a Huckabee lying to the White House press today instead of the Easter Bunny, well it appears that somebody may have needed a little quiet time after announcing the firing of Comey yesterday.

This is what Newsweek reported took place after Spicer yelled to the press that Comey was kaput: 

Aides said he would speak to press about the termination, which was blamed on Comey's supposed mishandling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while secretary of state, then changed their answers and said he wouldn't. Outside, Spicer appeared on Fox Business with Lou Dobbs, at times stuttering and misspeaking, at one point saying the attorney general had been terminated before quickly correcting himself. Photographers could be seen at the edges of the frame taking pictures of Spicer as he spoke with Dobbs.

"What I can tell you is the president, when given these recommendations, made a decision to accept their conclusions and to remove director Comey and begin that restoration of confidence and leadership that needs to happen there," Spicer said. 

The Post detailed also that "Spicer spent several minutes hidden in the bushes" while his press assistants negotiated the terms of a briefing. He stepped out, and asked for the lights on set to be turned off. They were.
I'm sorry, Spicer hiding in the bushes, and then demanding that the lights be turned off before he agrees to talk to the press is just hysterical.

I would try to feel a little empathy, but he took this job knowing who he was working for, so all of this should not be coming as a surprise.

By the way Melissa McCarthy is hosting SNL this weekend, so perhaps it is time to start taking bets as to how long Spicey is going to be punching that time clock.

    Huckabee Sanders is a lousy fat liar!
    Like her stupid father!

      She is only marginally more qualified for her job than an 8th grader.

    Comey just add to chaos, sue for slander.

    Miss Huckabee also seems to think that FBI Director Comey was "let go." She makes it sound like she's part of a real estate office. Maybe she is. If you watch her deportment, she lies without a blink.

    1. Yes, she is a very adept liar.

      Does it without missing a beat.

      She'll go to church on Sunday and her sins this week will be forgiven... again. Talk about your vicious cycle. Nuke Bible Thumpers!

    Today is not a good day for Trump's administration.

    What was she thinking?

    Did DeVos expect a ticket tape parade?

    Is Betsy DeVos that fuckin' dumb?

    Watch 2 minutes into speech

  7. Is everyone picking up on everything Trump seems to be doing is based on the "recommendations" of others.

    The man can't think for himself. He can't make any decisions. A right wing nutjob groups recommends his Supreme Court nominee. All these healthcare bills have nothing to do with what he supposedly wants per all his speeches. He fired Comey because someone told him to. He's hiring people based on the "recommendations" of who? We can pretty much guess the Bannon recommendations. Who was hired because Priebus said to do it? Who are Ivanka and Jared recommending?

    Do we need to vet the White House janitor in case he makes a suggestion while emptying the trash?

      Yes, I noticed that too. But, it also seems in this case that he wanted to do it and gave them an assignment to come up with rationale, which they put in letters and then he ran with that. Another way to blame someone else if it blows up on him? And, probably the only way he can come up with any sort of rationale for what he just wants to do.

      On the subject of laying it on how Comey "mishandled" the Hillary investigation --- does that mean that they are mad he was "mean" to her? (not likely), OR, does it mean he bungled it when he did not prosecute her? (more likely), and if so, does that mean he will once again go after her, "lock her up" to distract from Russia investigation/problems and to making his followers happy?

      And, even if he blames it all on Comey doing "bad" job, especially on issue of Hillary, the timing of it just is wrong for that rationale --- way to late for one, and for another, why not be smart and wait a while so tie-in to the Russian investigation is not so obvious? He is so stupid!!!!!!

    Little Miss Huckabee is a perfect example of the problem with nepotism. She lacks all credibility and has had no experience with what she's doing. Does she know the meaning of the word "atrocity"?

    I would have booed, too!

    And people talk about Southerners being inbred. At least we keep it between cousins. This administration is beyond the pale.

    It is gross how lousy politicians bring their kids into politics. These kids have been totally brainwashed and defective. It is gross how they were pushed into becoming liars for liars. Religious my ass.

    The easter bunny replacement, Huckabee? Can she lie better?

  13. Anonymous4:26 PM

    Paw Story is reporting that Spicey is at the Pentagon this week fulfilling his Naval Reserve duty, so that's why he didn't appear until evening and SHS is holding the daily briefing. Raw Story says this could be het tryout to replace Spicey as Trump wasn't thrilled with his performance last night.

    As one coming of age during the Vietnam War, keep their feet to the fire, media and citizenry alike!

    Hiding in the bushes, demanding the lights are turned out, and called in "sick" today, did ya, Sleaze Spice?!

    So, does hiding in the bushes qualify as Naval Reserve duty which is the reason given for Sanders standing in for Spicer?

    Louise Mensch is dumber than a stopped digital clock, with no battery backup.

  18. She lacks professional polish and acumen for the task. Clearly, Walmart greeters arr far more suited for the position than that political puppet.


Don't feed the trolls!
