Sarah Sanders Huckabee and her father, former Governor Mike Huckabee, appeared on "The View" on Thursday to discuss politics and President Trump. Things escalated quickly after Whoopi Goldberg started dramatically shouting and complaining about the President of the United States.
The conversation began with a discussion about President Trump's war on the "fake news" media. Sarah Sanders Huckabee remarked that the news media has an obligation to reports facts, not opinion, and to try to the best of their ability to present information in a way that does not reveal the political orientation of the journalist.
Although heated, the conversation between the hosts and Sarah Sanders was substantive and civil, with remarks going back and forth about the proper relationship between the presidency and the news media, the proper role of the news media in a democratic society, and how relationships can be mended between the media and the Trump administration.
Things were civil until Whoopi Goldberg interrupted to express outrage over Trump's involvement in the birther movement several years back.
"So, there are those that we can go back-and-forth with, but I think it would be helpful *chuckle* if he a) would stick to whatever he... like last night! He tweeted one thing and then he said something else the next morning! It's like, it's like... COME ON MAN!" she remarked while grabbing her hair with both hands and lifting it upward toward the ceiling. "It's a lie! It's a lie!
Excerpts from the interview can be seen in the two videos below. Goldberg's outrage can be seen in the second one.
Sanders took over the role of White House press secretary after Sean Spicer resigned in July. The decision was announced by former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci. Before being hired for the role full time, Sanders would sometimes fill in for Spicer when he was on Naval Reserve duty in May, and held the position of Deputy White House Press Secretary.
