Sarah Huckabee Sanders is in a good place away from the media scrutiny of her former job. The media was relentless in attacking Sarah for the job she did for Trump.
If Sarah worked for any other administration – a working mother in such a high profile job – she would have been praised from dawn to dusk in Washington D.C.
But she worked for Trump so it was all acrimony and attacks. She is now opening up about how bad it actually was.
She rarely complained about these attacks but after hearing what she has to say it must have been very difficult to not set the record straight.
She is looking like she will run for Arkansas governor in 2022 when Asa Hutchinson’s time is up. She would be hard to beat.
“I was attacked for everything, not just my performance,” Sanders said. “I was called a fat soccer mom, my kids were threatened, my life was threatened.”
“It was a lot. I hate harping on it, but to be in the position I’m in and to have Secret Service, that’s not normal.”
“There are two types of people who run for office. People that are called and people that just want to be a senator or governor. I feel like I’ve been called.”
“It’s the role I’ve been pushed into,” Sanders said. “I wouldn’t want to do that if I wasn’t the right person to fit what the state needed at that time.”
About a recent speech in Arkansas she said:
“Just excited to have people clap when I come up to a podium. It’s very different from what I’m used to.”
“I don’t like being called a liar.”
“If I do run, it will because I feel called to do it and because I feel I can offer something to the state and I can do something to help move the state further ahead and grow it in a positive way and I fit what the state needs at that time,”
