MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough accused White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders of lying Thursday.
“Here we have one more example…of Sarah Huckabee Sanders lying,” Scarborough said. “Two lies there. One, McMaster never said that no one has been tougher on Russia than Donald Trump. That is a lie, full stop. Sarah Huckabee Sanders lied yesterday, again.”
“She also lied when she said that — when she denied that McMaster said that quote was, ‘we have failed to hit them enough.’ And again she lied about that as well.” (RELATED: Sarah Sanders Shuts Down CNN’s Acosta By Bringing Up The Elephant In The Room)
Perhaps the reason Scarborough is so quick to call Sanders a liar is because of how she handled the press Wednesday.
A reporter asked, “This sense of urgency about sending the National Guard to the border, does this have anything to do with the report that the president saw on Fox News?”
Sanders hit back, “It has everything to do with protecting the people of this country.”
“It shouldn’t be a surprise. The president has been talking about securing the border for years. Since he started on the campaign trail.” (RELATED: Sarah Sanders Asked About Trump’s ‘Urgency’ To Protect Southern Border — She Drops A Wall)
