A journalist in the Los Angeles Times mocked White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Friday showing just how toxic liberals are.
David Horsey titled his column “Sarah Huckabee Sanders is the right mouthpiece for a truth-twisting president.”
In it, he accuses Sanders of telling lies for President Trump and refers to her as “Big Mother” in the accompanying cartoon, which shows Sanders in a fascist-style uniform uttering phrases like “War is peace.”
Horsey chooses to go low in the column, slamming Sanders’ appearance as well as her job performance.
“Sanders looks more like a slightly chunky soccer mom who organizes snacks for the kids’ games. Rather than the fake eyelashes and formal dresses she puts on for news briefings, Sanders seems as if she’d be more comfortable in sweats and running shoes. Yet, even if Trump privately wishes he had a supermodel for a press secretary, he is lucky to have Sanders.”
Wow, what a sick excuse for journalism. The media is supposed to be above all the “partisan nonsense” that we have to deal with every day. For a journalist to do this to a member of President Trump’s administration is just low.
Apparently, the backlash from the comments were so bad that Horsey was forced to apologize, and rightfully so!
I want to apologize to Times readers — and to Sarah Huckabee Sanders — for a description that was insensitive and failed to meet the standards of our newspaper. It also failed to meet the expectations I have for myself. It surely won’t be my last mistake, but this particular error will be scrupulously avoided in my future commentaries. I’ve removed the offending description.

This doesn’t sound like a sincere apology to me and Horsey is just likely playing lip service so he doesn’t lose his job.
Let’s not let this get swept under the rug! SHARE it everywhere and tell the LA Times that this man should be fired!
