Conservative Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin tore into White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Sunday, saying she should be shunned from her next job for her false and misleading claims.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders is so concerned that people arent nice to her, Rubin told MSNBCs Joy Reid on "AM Joy." And people like me think that not that she should be harassed but that she should be shunned. The reason is that she lies.
She attacks our free press and no respectable employer should hire her after this term, Rubin continued. Also, no university and no news outlet. She has lied and she has endangered the lives of reporters and thats why she should be shunned. Not harassed shunned.
Rubins remarks came days after Sanders verbally sparred with CNN reporter Jim Acosta during a confrontation at a White House press briefing.
Sanders refused, multiple times, to condemn President Trumps comments calling the media the enemy of the people, prompting Acosta to walk out of the briefing early.
We dont have to put it [the press briefing] on television, we dont have to put it on television live, Rubin suggested on Sunday. If by some chance she utters some morsel of accurate information it could be fact-checked and related to the audience. The same thing with the rallies no reason to put them on live television.
Rubin frequently criticizes the GOP and Trump in her Right Turn blog for the Post, previously calling Trump an "arrogant fool" and a "flat-out racist."
Earlier this week, the columnist declared in a scathing editorial that the GOP isnt fit to govern.
Shes NOT a conservative. Read her columns and tweets.
The Queen of the Neocons is conservative? Since when?
Never heard of Rubin, and I’m a long time conservative.
Jennifer Rubin, conservative columnist. In what sense?
And this is why it’s good to keep televising the press briefing.
Jebbifer Rubin is not a conservative except at the Washington Post where the sky is green.
Can professional liberal women control their emotions?
No. Example: Jennifer Rubin
Since Trump's election she has become a deeply bitter nevertrumper beeatch. Not sure I can think of a nevertrumper more in need of therapy for their TDS.
President Trump continues to bring the human cockroaches scurrying into daylight.
“...Conservative Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin...”
That right there should be on SNL....

In ‘lib’ land you are a conservative if a tad right to Stalin/Hitler eta AND don’t agree with the LIB side of the story.
Hard telling my ‘label’since I am quite right of Genghis Khan and Attila the Hun and Vlad the Impaler.
Rush Limbaugh is a RINO if compared to me...<: <: <:
Here she is. Should you ever have the opportunity to shun her...
Obama’s press secretaries lied every day. In fact, as the “journalists” walked into the room Fleetwood Mac’s TELL ME LIES was always playing. “Tell me lies, tell me sweet little lies”
First of all, they are NOT "the press." They are corporate media organizations (CMOs).
The press in the Constitutional sense is a device that can be used by people to publish their thoughts and opinions.
Every American, including those who run or work for CMOs, has a right to freely use a press to disseminate his or her views on any subject at any time.
But the reporters at NPR, NYT, Washington POS, CNN, MSNBC and all the other networks (including Fox News) do NOT have any constitutional right to have access and be heard at White House "Press" conferences.
They don't have that right, because neither I nor anybody else who posts opinions in print, by broadcast or online has that right, even though we use the press to publish our opinions, as I do regularly on Free Republic. (After all, the Internet is a means of publishing thoughts and opinions and therefore is a "press" in the Constitutional sense.)
And another "right" that these CMOs definitely DO NOT have, is the right not to be insulted by the President, who did not surrender his own First Amendment right to free speech when took the oath of office.
Being invited to participate in a White House "press" conference is therefore a privilege that can be extended or withdrawn purely at the discretion of the White House (or Congress, or the Judiciary in their own venues).
I so wish that at Trump's next "press conference," he will state this reality once and for all. And then I hope he will take a question from Jim Acosta, after prefacing it with the following statement:
"I'm going now to take a question now from Jim Acosta purely as a courtesy, albeit an undeserved one, because this is going to be his last White House 'press conference' during my administration. Additionally, I am revoking the press credentials of CNN,the racist New York Times, and a number of other Corporate Media Organizations who will soon be notified of their change in status. OK Jim, what's your question?"
Then I hope that Trump in the future, the White House will issue "Media Passes" to other respectable press users - bloggers, authors, YouTubers, etc. who will be invited to future Media Conferences, provided that they show courtesy, intelligence and respect.
And as for the CMOs, they can watch the President's Media Conferences on C-SPAN and then write whatever the hell they want to about them.
LOL at calling that b*tch a “Conservative” LOL that’s like saying John McCain is a Conservative..Commie douche bag goes on MSDNC to trash anyone associated with Trump, and I bet this lil bitch voted for Hillary Clinton too, go cry in your corn flakes lady she LOST
In the sense that Rachel Dolezal (ha ha ha, autocorrect tries to change her name to "doleful") is black.
