Trump Press Secretary Called ‘Fake Christian,’ ‘Jesus Junkie,’ After Sharing Her Faith

Sanders 8-2

In a recent wide-ranging interview with The New York Times, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders defended her family, job performance, and president.

She also defended her religion.

Sanders, who is the daughter of former pastor and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, is a practicing evangelical who reads scripture before each press briefing.

According to the interview:

” If Mr. Spicer’s gaffe-prone briefings mutated into an unhelpful spectacle, Ms. Sanders’s sessions tend to be flat and uneventful, not necessarily a bad thing for a stormy administration.

An evangelical who reads from a book of Christian devotionals before every briefing — and the daughter of the pastor-turned-presidential-candidate Mike Huckabee, the former Republican governor of Arkansas — Ms. Sanders is an unlikely public face for Mr. Trump, a twice-divorced connoisseur of grievance.

“I certainly didn’t approve of a couple of the comments,” Ms. Sanders said of her time on Mr. Trump’s campaign, where she served as an adviser and on-air surrogate. “But at the same time, we were looking for a commander in chief, not a pastor.”

“Oftentimes, people want to make politicians perfect,” she added. “And that’s one of the actual beauties of Christianity, is understanding that no one is.”

She is the first mother to serve as press secretary, and among the youngest to occupy the role.

 

However, after the religious nugget appeared, commenters online savaged Sanders as a “hypocrite,” “fake Christian,” and claimed she was “reading a different Bible” for her work in the Trump administration:

“…anyone who is a true Christian….”

“If Ms. Huckabee Sanders ever had a soul…”

“…sold her religion and beliefs down the river…”

“We must be reading different Bibles…”

“Are you just hoping that your god doesn’t notice?”

“…white, tone-deaf, evangelical…”

“…fake claims about being Christian.”

“…a fake Christian.”

“…hypocritical…”

“…hypocrite…”

“…her obvious ‘Christian’ disdain for the press…”

“…from which devotionals…”

“bible thumppin Jesus Junkie…”

The declaration of faith was not Sanders’s first. In June, Sanders was asked by a reporter if, as a mother, she would defend the tweets to her children. She responded:

“On a personal level, you have sat here and talked about your family from this podium, are you going to tell your kids this behavior is OK?”

Sanders dug in with her response, citing who is her “perfect role model”:

“Look, I’ve been asked before, when it comes to role models, as a person of faith, I think we all have one perfect role model and when I’m asked that question, I point to God. I point to my faith and that’s where I would tell me kids to look. None of us are perfect and certainly there’s only one that is and that’s where I would point that direction.”

Most parents would have a hard time disagreeing with her.

    Boy are the Liberals and their Media buddies running scared. What is found in the Bible, is this is exactly what will happen and we are seeing it happen. It all has to do with people wanting to do as they please and ignoring that there is a God!

    I can’t believe some of these comments. I don’t know what president Trump has lied about. Every time he say something about someone it comes out that he’s right. Democrats are known for there lies. Look at Obama and Killery lied and are still lying. It’s a shame on how they took and took and still taking. They say they took from SS and are still taking. You better listen to different news cast than what you are. I don’t think anyone that’s a Democrat is giving Trump a chance. As far as Sanders goes you can’t knock her for believing whats in the Bible and it’s up to her if she prays . You best start reading the Bible. It said what was gunna happen in the end days end it’s already starting. If you look atvObamas forehead you can see where horns are. He’s the Antichrist. Read about it in the new testament it’s all coming true. If you don’t believe then your gunna be the sorry one. Just remember that God holds the key to Heaven and Hell.

    Im wondering if these [people that made these outrageous.. Pharisee like comments against her are even real. They may be bots or libs acting like Christians. If they are then they may have what some of us call a “religious spirit” the kind Jesus dealt with when he walked the earth and argued with the religious rulers of his day. People forget that Jesus was arrested and charged by RELIGIOUS people and leaders and handed over to the secular authorities on ( excuse the pun) trumped up charges of treason. Just because somebody waves a bible;around and says they are christian doesn’t mean anything, I myself question people who say they are christians and voted for Obama and show case this vile hatred at our new president. Those kinds of tables can be turned easily.. and the self righteous.. ones on the high horse criticizing the rest of that like Trump can point the finger right back at them.
