It was only a matter of time before professional liar Sarah Huckabee Sanders slipped up and fell out of the president’s good graces. Trump demands absolute loyalty, which means even an inkling of an adverse criticism uttered by one of his minions equals ostracization.
CNN’s Jim Acosta reported that the President is “very unhappy” with the way Huckabee Sanders handled the Stormy Daniels issue during the latest White House press briefing. Stormy reemerged this week as a thorn in Donald’s side with her lawyer, whose aim is to trash Daniels’ nondisclosure agreement.
The far-fetched claim is that the president didn’t know about the $130,000 payment his lawyer, Michael Cohen, made to Daniels shortly before the 2016 election to keep her extramarital affair with Donald out of the public eye.

Sanders told reporters that an arbitration case had played in the president’s favor, and she failed to “outright deny” that Trump might have known about the $130,000 hush money payment.
According to Acosta’s source, Sanders “gave the Stormy Daniels storyline steroids yesterday.”

When asked to comment on Sanders’ claim concerning the arbitration proceeding, Stormy’s lawyer, Michael Avenatti, quipped that Trump had “also won the popular vote.” Sanders made a giant boo-boo when she admitted to the president’s involvement in the arbitration process.
