So you thought you liked Sarah Huckabee Sanders as White House Press Secretary? You just might LOVE her as a private citizen, now free to speak her mind as a former administration official.

One of the first pieces of evidence that Sanders has no intention of fading away is her kick-butt tweet in response to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s completely ironic, oblivious tweet questioning Ivanka Trump’s qualifications. Ummm … hello, AOC? What was your past employment history again?

Sanders, more tasteful and refined than some of us, didn’t go there. But she had no problem at all laying out the facts that AOC kills jobs in New York, while the Trumps create millions of jobs throughout the USA. Then she graciously expressed her appreciation to the Bronx congresswoman in her tweet, writing: “thank you for reminding Americans everyday why they elected Trump.”

AOC made unfortunate headlines in February after she was blamed for driving Amazon to scrap plans to build an additional head office in Queens, New York.

The radical socialist had attacked the mega-company for asking city boards to bid on the facility. “The idea that it will receive hundreds of millions of dollars in tax breaks at a time when…our communities need MORE investment, not less, is extremely concerning to residents here,” she tweeted in November.

Most New Yorkers, including Gov. Andrew Cuomo, expressed disgust over the lost deal. Cuomo blamed “a small group of politicians put their own narrow political interests above their community,” for a “lost economic opportunity” that he said would have created some 25,000-40,000 jobs.

As for Sanders … to be clear, she is not about to retreat and take it easy after what had to be a tough and stressful two years doing battle with the vicious White House press corps. She reportedly has plans to write a book about her time in the administration, to take on some speaking engagements, to help the President in his re-election campaign, and oh … probably run for governor of Arkansas. More on all that here.
