The job of White House Press Secretary, regardless of who is in the administration, comes with a heavy dose of “massaging the truth.” Sean Spicer has been flying off the handle a lot lately and so the Trump administration decided to send out Sarah Huckabee Sanders, probably best known for having the single most intense oxymoronic juxtaposition of middle and last names in recent memory. With the Trump administration’s narrative falling to pieces like one of Trump’s business portfolios, Huckabee Sanders’ one sticking point is that while she “doesn’t know a whole lot of people in the FBI,” she’s heard from tons and they all love Trump’s decision to blind-side their former boss.
Reporter: And one last question just to follow-up on the F.B.I. thing—and I'm not trying to be overly combative here—but you said now, today, and I think you said again yesterday that you personally have talked to countless F.B.I. officials, employees since this happened.

“We are not going to get into a numbers game,” is like number 2 on the list of things people who are lying say. The number 1 thing being “Are you calling me a liar.” When you watch the video below, Huckabee Sanders is saying number 2 while acting like she’s saying number 1.
