Sarah Huckabee Sanders has finally run out of lies and is leaving the White House.

Sarah Smokey Eye Sanders is, finally, leaving the role as White House Press Secretary after three and a half two and a half years on the job.

BYE! GOODBYE, YOU MONSTER WHO HAD NO COMPUNCTION ABOUT LYING FOR A NORMS-VIOLATING, DEMOCRACY-DESTROYING,  PUSSY-GRABBING, WANNABE-AUTOCRAT! BYE! YOU WON’T BE MISSED!

Sanders told a reporter: “I hope that it will be that I showed up every day and I did the very best job that I could to put forward the president’s message … to do the best job that I could to answer questions. To be transparent and honest throughout that process and do everything I could to make America a little better that day than it was the day before.”

laughing anchorman lol

Let’s look back at some of her greatest lies hits:

There was the time she claimed that “countless” people in the FBI were super-stoked James Comey had been fired (only to admit to Robert Mueller that this was a lie); and there was the time that the called the women who had accused Trump of sexual harassment of being liars; and there was that time she claimed to have no knowledge of hush-money payments when she most certainly did; and there were all the times she claimed that Trump was “joking” when he said particularly egregious or shocking things; and there was the time she threatened to shut down a press briefing because the press was, you know, asking questions; and there was the time she claimed that Trump never incited violence despite telling cops to rough up suspects and telling people to attack protestors at his rallies and saying that Nazis are “good people” and suggesting that the Second Amendment would stop Hillary Clinton and liberal judges and cheering on that one Congressman who beat up a reporter.

It’s been fun, Sarah, you fucking liar.

But let’s go out on a high note — with the one true thing Sarah Huckabee Sanders ever said:

Meanwhile, the Office of Special Counsel has said that Kellyanne Conway should be fired for violating the Hatch Act, but that ain’t gonna happen. Especially not with Sarah Huckaliar Sanders leaving this month.

A tribute to Jon Stewart and why his outrage was so powerful this week.

How Pedro Zamora (and television in general) helped this mom confront her own issues and make her a better mother to her genderqueer child. R.I.P. Pedro.

If Black Mirror were made in Medieval times, it’d be all about the evils of plows and yokes.

Apparently, Miguel Sapochnik, the director of some the best battle sequences in Game of Thrones, pissed off Benioff and Weiss with some of his cinematic flourishes. But then he did “Hardhome,” so, you know.

The Emmys might be hostless, too, and I’m FINE WITH THAT. Meanwhile, the Academy had to boot some members for conspiring to block vote.

Chernobyl has turned out to be a solid hit for HBO despite being on Monday nights and despite being, you know, a terrifying bummer. (A brilliant terrifying bummer, but a terrifying bummer nonetheless.) Meanwhile, the Communist party in Russia would like the series banned, please. Gee, why?

The Stephen Universe movie is going to be a musical and full o’ talent, including Estelle, Chance the Rapper and Patti LuPone.

People are frustrated with the plethora of streaming services available and it’s only going to get worse when the big boys, Disney+, AppleTV+, and WarnerMedia launch this fall. As long as we’re also paying for cable, and tied to a network schedule to some degree, people are going to feel like they’re drowning in content and paying out the wazoo. This will settle one way or another eventually, but it’s going to be disruptive until it does.

Netflix has released the music video for the “On a Roll,” Ashley O’s song from Black Mirror

Good luck with this, Steve:

The Stranger Things synopsis is here and it tells us nothing!

“It’s 1985 in Hawkins, Indiana, and summer’s heating up. School’s out, there’s a brand new mall in town, and the Hawkins crew are on the cusp of adulthood. Romance blossoms and complicates the group’s dynamic, and they’ll have to figure out how to grow up without growing apart. Meanwhile, danger looms. When the town’s threatened by enemies old and new, Eleven and her friends are reminded that evil never ends; it evolves. Now they’ll have to band together to survive, and remember that friendship is always stronger than fear.”

This is an interesting article about how reality shows deal with mental health issues, from casting to the aftermath of filming. Some shows offer up to three therapy sessions after filming is complete, but then folks are on their own. Considering some 40 contestants of various shows have committed suicide over the years, maybe this is not enough? But how much would be?

I’m with this Boing Boing writer, I never liked the Road Runner cartoons, either.

Michael Avenatti is being sued by another client. This guy, geez.

Thank you, The Handmaid’s Tale cast:

  1. Boing Boing’s complaints about the Roadrunner and Wile E. Coyote could just as easily apply to Tweety and Sylvester as well as Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd. Do you dislike them too?

    1. I disliked Tweety and Sylvester. As for Bugs and Elmer, they spoke and cracked jokes, their cartoons took place in a variety of settings, and they weren’t just a variation of the same script over and over again.
