After over eight months in office, President Donald Trump has not been able to live up to the hype that he promised during the 2016 presidential election [VIDEO], which has been reflective in his recent approval rating. In an attempt to promote the Trump brand and push back against the Democratic Party, White House Press Secretary #Sarah Huckabee Sanders made comments that didn't over well on social media.

Sanders on Clinton

Once it became clear that Donald Trump was going to become the new president after his shocking upset win over Democratic nominee #Hillary Clinton last November, he quickly tapped former Republican National Committee spokesman Sean Spicer to take on the role of White House Press Secretary.

While Spicer was one of the names that didn't receive heavy backlash [VIDEO]from the media, he quickly found himself in the headlines after a series of controversial missteps at the podium. The pressure mounted to the point that Spicer stepped down from his job over the summer and was replaced by Sarah Huckabee Sanders, daughter of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. Sanders has since been a strong defender of the president, which continued during her latest press conference, as reported by CBS News on September 13.

During the press briefing at the White House on Wednesday afternoon, Sarah Huckabee Sanders covered a wide range of topics pushed by the reporters, including former President Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton's new book about the 2016 election.

"I think that misunderstanding of who this president is, and frankly a misunderstanding of what he’s been doing. is one of the reasons Hillary Clinton is not the president,” the press secretary said. Sanders went on to accuse Clinton of selling a book with "false narratives" and "false accusations," claiming that the biggest blunder was when the former Secretary of State "lays the blame for the loss on anyone but herself."

Sanders on Obama

Not stopping there, Sarah Huckabee Sanders continued to Donald Trump from increased criticism from reporters over his recent decision to bail on Republican leaders to cut a deal with the Democrats on the debt ceiling. After blasting the media, Sanders then took a shot at Barack Obama, stating, "This president has done more for bipartisanship in the last eight days than Obama did in eight years."

"Boy do I despise (SHS). I realize this is not a helpful tweet but it makes me feel better, thank you," Billy Eichner tweeted out.

"Sarah Huckabee Sanders talking about the law is White House podium version of a fish explaining how to ride a bicycle," Mike Lupica posted. "If anyone should be fired, it's (SHS) who lies incessantly from the people's podium daily," another tweet added.

"Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a smug liar in need of an iron. It is amazing that she gets to feign moral superiority as a devil's spokesperson," Michael Arceneaux noted. The backlash continued as it was clear that the opposition to Donald Trump and his team wasn't going to end anytime soon. #Barack Obama
