Sarah Huckabee Sanders Smears Obama While Telling An Unbelievable Lie About Trump

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders smeared Obama while falsely claiming that Trump has been more bipartisan in one deal than Obama was in eight years.


Huckabee Sanders said, “This president has done more for bipartisanship in the last eight days than Obama did in eight years.”

Sarah Huckabee Sanders was lying.

Here are the facts.

Because of divided government, Obama relentlessly pursued Republican votes, and almost all of his domestic policy achievements came from bipartisan deals.

Here is a brief list of Obama’s bipartisan deals via a Real Clear Politics article:

1), The Recovery Act

2). Repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell

3). Dodd Frank

4). Surveillance reform

5). Food Safety Bill

6). mandatory prison sentence reform

9). 2010 tax cuts

10). 2012 tax cut deal to raise taxes on the very wealthy

11). the sequester

12). numerous CRs negotiated with Republicans to keep the government open

The list above is partial, and there are dozens of more legislative accomplishments during the Obama years that were bipartisan and never got the credit or attention that they deserved.

It is a total lie to suggest that because Trump made one deal with Democrats, he is more bipartisan, but that is the fantasy world that Republicans are living in. The Trump administration’s sole and only purpose isn’t to govern but to smear, undo, and demean Obama’s legacy with lies and false statements.
