Sarah Huckabee Sanders Wonders Why Women Attack Her For Her Lies, ‘They Should Be Proud of Me!’

Former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made her first appearance as a contributor on Donald Trump’s favorite show on Friday and complained about women attacking her “relentlessly,” suggesting they shouldn’t because not many women have risen to her role.

Sanders on Fox & Friends acted surprised that the majority of the criticism she has gotten for backing Trump comes from women.

“What I find interesting is 99 percent of the people who come over to say something negative, and to attack you, are women. I find that very startling from a group of people that claim to be the champions of women empowerment,” Sanders said.

“I am only the third woman and the first mom to ever be the White House press secretary,” Sanders continued. “And yet women attack me relentlessly, instead of being proud that we have more women doing those types of jobs.”

Sanders is also the first mom to admit under oath that she lied to the American people from the press briefing podium.

Sanders, whose tenure was riddled with controversy including misleading statements and lying to the press, stepped down from her post in June. Two weeks ago, Sanders announced she was “beyond proud” to join Fox News’ “incredible stable of on-air contributors in providing political insights and analysis.”

Trump showered Sanders with praise for her first appearance working with the network.

“Great interview of Sarah Sanders by @foxandfriends,” Trump tweeted. “She is a terrific person with a great future!”

Sanders said she has gotten “nasty” comments from people “every once in a while” but has not had an encounter like last year when owners of The Red Hen restaurant in Virginia refused to serve her.

She also promoted her forthcoming book about serving as press secretary, expected to be published before the 2020 presidential election.

“My experience was extremely positive,” Sanders said. “My book will be positive.”
