Huckabee daughter to replace Sean Spicer?

Thu May 11, 2017 7:33 pm

Internet started talking about it two days ago, now mainstream media is picking up on it as well.

Image

Due to his alleged refusal to continue defending Trump's firing of James Comey, Sarah Huckabee-Sanders has been sitting in as a temporary White House press secretary, and now many outlets are speculating that she might have the job permanently.

http://www.mediaite.com/online/white-ho ... om-spicer/

Gotta admit, I'll miss this guy, if it's true.
On one hand, I'd call him TERRIBLE at his job... but on the other hand, at least he tried. No one else would, at first.

*************************************
On the other hand, this is sorta atypical of Trump, as (by his own admission) he values women's looks/appearance on TV above all else.... and she's got a face that looks like a cemetery after an earthquake. Not being mean, just being honest.

So in a sense, this would actually be a rare instance of substance demonstrated by the President. Progress?

Poor Spicy. :D

Typical liberal. Calling Trump a mysoginist while saying the the woman in question is not qualified for the job because she (in your opinion) isn't good looking enough.

I am so tired of this shit. You are the worst person I have encountered on this forum. Shame on you.

Hmm, since reading comprehension is apparently not your strong suit.... let's go through it bit by bit. :roll:

Summary of what CLEARLY flew straight over your head:
Trump might be putting a homely-looking woman on TV. Thus, him valuing a woman's substance over her appearance, appears to be a departure from his typical patterns. We could even call that progress.

I think socalgeo's point is that, if Trump had said "she's got a face that looks like a cemetery after an earthquake. Not being mean, just being honest" you and many others would likely point to that as evidence of mysoginism... and yet, you posted that very comment while pointing out someone else's mysoginism (or departure therefrom).

I'd suggest that honesty requires acknowledging that the comment was indeed mean.

Ms. Huckabee seems to me to be a vast improvement over Mr. Spicer in a very, very tough job.

Defending the indefensible isn't often part of a job description.

Well anything that has sprung forth from her dreadful father's loins is already primed for dishonesty and vengeance, so she's probably perfect for the job!

LOL get off your cross we need the wood. No one's buyin' it. Shall we go through Trump's statements re: various women? Do you have a spare week to sit through all of them? I'm not sure what's worse--defending Trump's outrageous behavior or feigning faux outrage when someone else does something that could be construed as *remotely* similar. I bet you think Colber is homophobic, right?

Yet again, you guys are missing the point...

It's not simply the statement LAX772LR made about Ms. Huckabee-Sanders. It's the outright hypocrisy on display by lambasting Trump for "misogyny" (not just in this thread) and then engaging in a bit of it, yourself.

No one is getting on a cross, they're just pointing out the typical liberal hypocrisy that is on display. It's completely expected, though, since if we've learned anything from the left over the last 8 years, it's that they completely ignore their own "standards" if/when the woman in question is a conservative. They'll wail and foam at the mouth about Trump's comments, but fall into the most disgusting of misogyny if the woman in question is a conservative.

In fact, I bet if we looked hard enough on these very forums, we would probably find instances in which these very same pearl clutching liberals were spouting hateful, misoginystic things about Ann Coulter or Sarah Palin or Carly Fiorina or Condi Rice, etc. And, of course, we already have a few examples of such comments directed at Ms. Huckabee-Sanders.

Typical liberal mentality, "do as I say, not as I do". It's been plainly obvious since Al "invented the internet" Gore put out his global warming sham movie, yet did nothing to curb his lifestyle of business jets and huge houses.

This reeks of Soviet-style, friends-of-the-party cronyism. Had he picked anyone who is not related to anyone in the party and is more than just a Republican, I wouldn't say that. But she is the daughter of a huge, outspoken righty. The cronyism is real.

Oh yawn. Must not be a lot of oxygen up there on your high horses. Have you met your party's leader? Your party won't even recognize misogyny as existing.Trump could fill libraries with the nasty things he's said/done to women, and when someone uses a remotely similar tactic you clutch your pearls and turn on the faux outrage fire hose. If this was Milo or R Spencer saying it you'd be saying how wonderful free speech is. Sit down.

No, you're missing the point in that you're assuming wayyyyy too much, in order to turn this into a self-righteous tirade that's so clearly feigned that even the blind can see such.

There's no hypocrisy here, as I'm:
1) not all that liberal, so not sure how you can confer what I say into being a reflection of an entire ideology
2) not even lambasting Trump for his misogyny, just noting that he seems to be getting past it
3) not impugning on her womanhood in any way

I'm just remarking that this person ain't winning any beauty contests any time soon-- and noting that Trump seems to be getting past his M.O. of preferring looks over capability in a TV employee, which he himself previously admitted.

Once more - it's not about the fact that the left is overtly misogynistic. I really couldn't care less what you or anyone else thinks of this woman. It's the hypocrisy. I'm assuming you know what that word means, but just in case - "the practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one's own behavior does not conform."

In this specific case, it would be "the practice of claiming to abhor misogynistic people, while simultaneously being misogynistic."

It clearly doesn't bother you or many other liberals to demean a woman because of her appearance. I don't care about that. But when you then head for the fainting couches because someone else does the exact same thing... that's pitiful, and to be quite honest, it's why that tactic doesn't work anymore for the left or the media. People see it for what it is - outright hypocrisy.

If this explanation doesn't do the job. I'm afraid you're beyond hope. You're either being intentionally obtuse, or you simply have no business trying to carry on a discussion in this manner.

Spicey has 18 years PR experience, he is close to most of the reporters, if he cannot do, no one can.

They ALL including POTUS need to get the story straight before showing up on TV. If that doesn't work, just read from prepared talking points.

Spicer is too much like the infamous 'Baghdad Bob' spokesperson for Iraq's Saddam Hussain in his last days. He has lost the trust of mainstream news media, is losing his ability to lie and has to cover for a overt fool in Pres. Trump. He is going to either be fired or quit before getting fired.

Not really-- because despite the obvious propaganda in his pre-war statements, what a lot of people never realized about Baghdad Bob, AKA Comical Ali, (nee Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf), is that many of his bombastic proclamations and predictions turned out to be 100% ACCURATE in retrospect.

For example:
"The crook Rumsfeld said yesterday that they are hunting mass destruction weapons in Baghdad and Tikrit, and yesterday I replied to that cheap lie . . . I assure you that those villains will recognize, will discover in appropriate time in the future how stupid they are and how they are pretending things which have never taken place."

"They are trying to say that the Iraqi is easy to capture, in order to deceive the world that it is a picnic. One day, they [will] start facing bitter facts."

"Faltering forces of infidels cannot just enter a country of 26 million people and lay besiege to them! They are the ones who will find themselves under siege."

"The simple fact is this: they are foreigners inside a country which has rejected them. Therefore, these foreigners, wherever they go or travel, they will be rained down with bullets from everyone."



....and then, there's what's perhaps his most infamous quote of all:
"The infidels are committing suicide by the hundreds on the gates of Baghdad."

He nailed the issue, just missed on the location.

2008-2010 saw an enormous spike in military suicides. By year-end 2010, an average of 22 soldiers and veterans were committing suicide EVERY DAY. Even as of last year, it's only gone down to 20.

Isn't that inevitable, though? How can you defend the actions of Trump without lying, denying reality, and constantly tying yourself up in mental gymnastics?

You so often disparage anyone or anything you talk about, I wondered if there was anything you liked.
Now I've found it: Baghdad Bob.

Yes, the fact that veterans' suicide rate is about double the national average is worthy of mention, but I don't think that fact validifies any of Baghdad Bob's hyperbole. Keep in mind that the 20 a day figure is from a pool of fifty million, and the last 40 years of veterans are from an all volunteer force which comprises citizens all of whom abandoned their homes, communities and contact with their families to join an unknown adventure. That was a high risk group from the get go.

Not really, just the ones that have it coming.

Why are you spending any amount of time thinking about my preferences? That's pretty creepy dude.

Meh, that sure doesn't say much for your perceptive capability.

Indeed, THAT doesn't.

The fact that his hyperbole ended up being accurate in retrospect, does.

So? It's not as though that lessens the effect/tragedy of the matter.

I'd much prefer seeing and listening to Mike Huckabee officiating the Pressers.

He knows how to get up on a soapbox!!

In this specific case, it would be "the practice of claiming to abhor misogynistic people, while simultaneously being misogynistic."

You might have a case if you weren't arguing from the side of Donald bloody Trump and Milo et al. Trump values attractiveness in women above all, and Huckabee does not seem to fit the bill. That may be an opinion, but it certainly isn't instructive on her ability to get the job done well (she can't regardless). But let's make the leap that an opinion on attractiveness is misogyny. That flickering candle of misogyny is nothing compared to the quasar of poisonous misogyny that is Trump and the republican party. No one on the left will tell you they're perfect and misogyny free. Most on the right however will swear that it simply does not even exist in the first place.

And of course the totally non hypocritical party of rah rah support the troops and all lives matter is deeply concerned about the issue and busy finding a way to solve it....right after they vaporize mental health care and ensure every last mentally challenged person has unhindered access to guns.

Due to his alleged refusal to continue defending Trump's firing of James Comey, Sarah Huckabee-Sanders has been sitting in as a temporary White House press secretary, and now many outlets are speculating that she might have the job permanently.

Gotta admit, I'll miss this guy, if it's true.
On one hand, I'd call him TERRIBLE at his job... but on the other hand, at least he tried. No one else would, at first.

*************************************
On the other hand, this is sorta atypical of Trump, as (by his own admission) he values women's looks/appearance on TV above all else.... and she's got a face that looks like a cemetery after an earthquake. Not being mean, just being honest.

So in a sense, this would actually be a rare instance of substance demonstrated by the President. Progress?

Poor Spicy. :D

Typical liberal. Calling Trump a mysoginist while saying the the woman in question is not qualified for the job because she (in your opinion) isn't good looking enough.

I am so tired of this shit. You are the worst person I have encountered on this forum. Shame on you.


Then go to bed...he IS on recording of GRABBING a woman's' genitals....what more do you need to be labeled a misogynist???

Overall I'm not impressed with her. She does have a hick accent (but then I'm from Oklahoma so I can't talk) but she can really bring out the knives very quickly. I don't know how the press will like that approach.

With Melissa driving her podium down the streets of NYC for tomorrow's show so he is probably safe this week. If Trump sees the show things might change rather fast.

Does anyone really think that she would be in that job if not for her Father. Have they no pride? It is becoming very commonplace in this country to see family names as the source of employment rather than qualifications in politics.

Don't you think she could have become very qualified to be a spin doctor just by watching her father's operations?

It cracks me up how transparently ridiculous it is that you are worried about snowflake Ann's lil feelings being hurt... The same woman who viciously went after 9-11 widows calling them witches who enjoyed their husbands' deaths, who wished Timothy Mcveigh blew up the NYTimes, who called for liberals' speech to be repressed ("Let's repress them. ... Frankly, I'm not a big fan of the First Amendment"--ironic considering her bitching today), and that's just the tip of the snow-white supremacist iceberg. Gosh, how could anyone be mean to this angelic woman? She's the real victim here of some totally undeserved mean words! :hissyfit:

No question about that, but one has to see a tendency to hire politically connected more openly than before, or so it seems to me. Just funny how they with the same names are the most qualified. Unions are always badmouthed for this by union haters. Political payback for favors done, always been so and it will remain so.
