LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — It has been less than six months since Sarah Huckabee Sanders left Washington after a tumultuous tenure as President Trump’s press secretary who was mocked so mercilessly at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner that other members of the Trump administration walked out.
But in the deep-red state of Arkansas, which Mr. Trump won in 2016 by nearly 27 points, Ms. Sanders has returned home a bona fide star eager to play a new role in a post-Trump Republican Party crafted in her former boss’s image.
“There are two types of people who run for office,” Ms. Sanders said over breakfast tacos at a diner in downtown Little Rock last week. “People that are called and people that just want to be a senator or governor. I feel like I’ve been called.”The New York Times:
In a nutshell, Sister Sarah views/goals going forward as:
- May run for governor but that seat doesn’t open until 2023.
- She still has major issues with the press.
- Her legacy would be “defending the indefensible and not being truthful with the American people,” David Axelrod.
- She’s very glad to be back in Arkansas among people who adore her lying ass:
- “I’m just excited to have people clap when I come up to a podium,” she said at a Lincoln-Reagan Day Dinner in Hot Springs one night last week. “It’s very different from what I’m used to. All I can say is thank God I’m back in Arkansas.”
- She and her family just bought a ‘sprawling’ home for 600K in one of Little Rock’s most influential hoods.
- She has a paid gig on Fox ‘News.’
- She does NOT like getting called a liar, but she is—so, there’s that.
- And claims, “Life is easier now.”
Good luck, Sister Sarah, you will need it but thankfully for you, it’s just Arkansas.
