Sanders Receives Warm Welcome at Trump Rally a Year after Atrocious Treatment at Correspondents’ Dinner

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders received a much warmer welcome at President Donald Trump’s rally in Green Bay, Wisconsin Saturday night than she did during last year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

As IJR previously reported, President Trump announced he would be skipping the “boring” and “negative” White House Correspondents’ Dinner in favor of a Wisconsin rally, telling the press, “The Correspondents’ Dinner is too negative; I like positive things.”

Trump was likely referring to the atrocious treatment Sanders faced when she attended the dinner in his place the previous year. During the 2018 correspondent’s dinner, host Michelle Wolf smeared Sanders as an “Uncle Tom but for white women who disappoint other white women.”

This year, Sanders ditched the vitriolic dinner and opted to join Trump in Green Bay, where she received the warmest welcome of the night, even forcing Trump to joke that he might have to fire her because he’s “jealous” of her popularity.

Trump welcomed her to the stage to chants of “Sarah.” The press secretary addressed the massive crowd, touting many of the successes she’s witnessed from the Trump administration.

Watch Sanders at the Green Bay rally:

“Thanks to all the amazing things you’ve done for our country. Last year, this night, I was at a slightly different event. Not quite the best welcome so this is an amazing honor. I’m so proud to work for the president. They said he couldn’t win in 2016 and he did. They said he couldn’t make our economy better and it’s booming. They said he couldn’t rebuild the military and he’s done it. They said there was collusion and there wasn’t. They’ve questioned him at every step and he’s proven them wrong every single time because of all of you.”

Sanders has served as press secretary for the majority of President Trump’s time in office. She first began working with him during the 2016 campaign.

Trump supporters could PRETEND in 2018 Sarah didn’t lie on a regular basis from the WH podium & clutch your pearls over the “burn facts & use the ashes to make the perfect smoky eye.” The lies are WELL documented. Trump DID dictate Jr’s response to the Trump Tower meeting. Trump DID have a signed agreement to pursue Trump Tower Moscow. Trump DID know about the NDA’s & payments. AND there were NOT “countless” FBI agreeing with firing Comey. Nor had rank & file lost confidence.

For those of us that live in reality, a lie is an untruth. It is still a lie, even if what Sarah and Trump say is what you want to hear. Example: If someone tells you that you won the lottery, but your tickets do not match the announced numbers, YOU did not win, even if that is what you wanted to hear.

“For those of us that live in reality” REALLY, philly? “a lie is an untruth.” You are the EXPERT where that is concerned here. You lie every time one of your fingers hit the keyboard. YOUR DENIALS about what you have posted doesn’t CHANGE what you have posted.

Great speech Sarah. I heard Alec Baldwin is voting for Trump in 2020 so he’ll have a SNL job for 4 more years.

Phyllis Softa

WHO did you hear that from & were they sober? Alec lives & votes in NY. Was this person thinking Trump was going to win NY by Alec’s vote? In 2016, Trump lost NY, you know the ones who know him best, by >1.7 MILLION votes. WHY would Alec’s vote matter? Trump didn’t need it in 2016.
And WHO in their right mind perceives DJT would stop giving SNL comedy material? Trump & Bernie will be tweeting away & booking campaign rallies until the day they die if they can make a buck.

Once again, your comment goes totally off on a tangent that makes no sense about the comment you are commenting on. LSD can be beaten, philly. You just have to take the first step by ADMITTING your problem.

Chrissy explains below she was pulling a Sarah Sanders—she made it up. I’m 67, and have not heard of anyone dropping acid since I was an undergrad in college. Is it really still around?

Chrissy
Member

I did not explain I was pulling a Sarah Sanders, that’s your take on it. Sarah Sanders is not a comediane, in my book. I make jokes all the time, I’m actually known by friends and family as “quick-witted”. LSD, unfortunately or fortunately, is very much still around. You may enjoy reading HOW TO CHANGE YOUR MIND

At 67, I have no plans to”get out more” with illegal drug users. Not on my bucket list. 40 yrs in nursing was enough exposure to the devastation of drugs and alcohol on individuals, families and the community. No thank you.

If claiming you hear things you don’t is funny and ‘quick witted’ how do I know you hearing your family and friends tell you so is not also a joke? When do we know when to laugh?

TOM

Actually yes, you need to get out more. However, with acid you don’t need to currently be a user as you can have “flashbacks” years later. Even 45, 50, or more years later.

I realize I am in Trump World here, BUT would I not need to have actually taken LSD to have a flashback from LSD? In 1971, a Vietnam Vet in my Speech class gave a speech on his “LSD trip.” Listening did not require dropping acid, nor can I imagine that it would have been approved by the professor. Providing nursing care as a student nurse to an ER patient that was hallucinating, did not expose me to the drug—even if the incident was decades before we donned gloves for all pts.

If the LSD that you keep referring to re Softinthehead is lysergic acid diethylamide I would be disinclined to believe that is her problem. She exhibits symptom more in line with meth.

Phyllis Softa

What would those symptoms be, TOM?

banstan

” you know the ones who know him best”. Just what is your basis for that lie?

Phyllis Softa
Member

Where did you perceive Trump lives? Where did you perceive Trump headquarters is located?

banstan

Do you live a life based on assumptions? Ooops, I already know the answer to that question.

Phyllis Softa
Member

Did I assume you don’t sleep with your spouse? Did I assume you had a small cranial bleed? No, ban, that was you. At 67, I am not going to abandon logical thought process just because 63 million voters sent a wacko to the WH.

Chrissy

It was a joke, @Phyllis. There was no other “person”. I made it up because it’s funny, and yes I was sober, I don’t drink. I’m in my right mind (pun intended) and am well aware of SNL’s proclivities where politics are concerned.

Phyllis Softa
Member

I was not suggesting YOU were not sober, I asked if the person you “heard” was sober. If I thought you were under the influence, I would have asked if you were hearing voices. WHY did you not say you were imitating Sarah Sanders? Are you saying that Trump was not aware of SNL’s “proclivities where politics are concerned” when he appeared or hosted the show?

Chrissy
Member

Once again, you didn’t read my response. Look again “there was no other person” for me to hear from- it’s a joke. I wasn’t imitating Sarah Sanders.- that was your take, you introduced that into our comments. I didn’t say anything about President Trump, you did. We were talking about SNL and their political proclivities and Alec Baldwin. Not sure who you are talking to with the “get out more” comment. You are extremely hard to understand as you jump from one comment to another. Exhausting!

Then I suggest that a nap might be in order.

Chrissy

Definitely! Right after my walk on the beach and quick swim. It gets the “softawebs” out.

Makes quite a difference when an intelligent woman is treated with the respect she’s earned and entitled to.

How far in the Mueller report have you gotten? History will not consider Sarah intelligent or entitled to respect.
