"If we can get her to run for the governor of Arkansas, I think she'll do very well".
Sanders, who will be moving to her home state of Arkansas with her family, gave the speech after the president invited her to say a few words.
"Stephanie is terrific. We have a lot of great people, we have a lot of good people to choose from", the president said noncommittally.
Huckabee, himself a former presidential candidate, said Axelrod's negativity toward Sanders is rooted in his opposition to President Donald Trump.
After they showed the Post Instagram, Henry remarked upon the "venom" she faced, while Hegseth said if Sanders is guilty of gaslighting--"make the [media] question their sanity"--maybe someone needed to do that do the press.
The Russia report released by special counsel Robert Mueller in April revealed that Sanders admitted to investigators that she had made an unfounded claim about "countless" FBI agents reaching out to express support for Trump's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey in May 2017. "I'm afraid she's going to be remembered quite differently because of the actions of her boss, President Donald Trump, and her own failures to live up to the obligations of the office".
Sanders has been one of Trump's most loyal foot soldiers, nearly constantly at his side during his tumultuous two and a half years at the White House and during the campaign before. "And it's not that they don't like her because majority don't even know her".

Despite the victory, Meduza says the work to prevent anyone else being treated in a similar way has only just begun. Newshounds With out Borders tweeted: "We hail the historic mobilisation of the Russian civil society".
Sanders has not held a formal briefing since March 11 and said she does not regret scaling them back.
Under her roughly two-year tenure as chief spokeswoman for the White House, daily televised briefings led by the press secretary became a relic of the past after Sanders repeatedly sparred with reporters who aggressively questioned her about administration policy, the investigation into possible coordination between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation or any number of controversies involving the White House. There was speculation that Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley could be a possible successor.
At an unrelated White House event, Trump described Sanders as a "warrior" as he called her to the stage.
She told reporters she told Trump of her decision on Thursday and that "he couldn't have been nicer, more supportive, more understanding, more encouraging than he was".
In the months afterwards, she was asked to leave a restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, because of her association with the Trump administration, a move she later said reflected more on the restaurant owners than on her. The current governor, Republican Asa Hutchinson, began his second and final four-year term in January.
Trump announced on June 13 that Sanders would be leaving the administration at the end of the month and return home to Arkansas.
