After a few months on the job, White House Press Secretary #Sarah Huckabee Sanders is now a household name. While Sanders has done her job in defending Donald Trump at every turn, she ran into a metaphorical brick wall [VIDEO]during her recent appearance on "#The View."

Sanders on "The View"

After Donald Trump pulled off his shocking and historic upset win over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton last November, it was only a matter of time before he named the team that would surround him in the White House. When it came to his press secretary, the former host of "The Apprentice" tapped Sean Spicer for the role. While initially Spicer seemed like a safe pick, and one of the least controversial, it ultimately ended in disaster.

Spicer struggled to defend Trump during the first six months of the administration, and made multiple blunders along the way. Following Spicer's exit, Sarah Huckabee Sanders was chosen to fill the vacancy. Since then, Sanders, daughter of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, has has her fair share of controversial moments [VIDEO], which continued during an interview with the hosts of "The View" on September 6.

While joining the set of "The View" along side her father, Sarah Huckabee Sanders was grilled on more than one occasion about Donald Trump, with various hosts chiming in. "The president has said that he is at war with the #fake news media," co-host Sara Haines said, before asking what responsibility the president should have in labeling all of the media as "fake." Following Sanders deflection, Haines replied "It's dangerous because the media is here for purpose.

It has a very important historical role. When people don't know the difference between these mediums, and they are saying 'fake news,' you are taking away a checks and balance in society."

Fellow co-host Joy Behar also got in on the action, asking Sarah Huckabee Sanders, "Is the media not supposed to report on the fact that 95 percent of what he says is a lie?" Sanders denied the accuracy of Behar's statement before "The View" panel pointed out that the information was from the fact-checking site Politifact. "It's from PolitiFact. It’s not just the dreaded New York Times, it is other outlets that say it," Behar noted.

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg then decided to comment, stating, "You have to get someone in the office who recognizes what the truth is." Goldberg went on to reference Donald Trump's birther claim about Barack Obama which questioned, without credible evidence, where the former president was born.
