What did her dad call people with preexisting conditions, burnt down houses?






She's already down a heart and a brain.




I've seen older pugs like this, they just wanna be in the pack.


Does she have a glass eye? The photo here is wonky eyed.


Not sure if glass, but she def can’t look anyone in the eyes. One of those bastards is trying like hell to get out of that skull


She can look several in the eyes at once


Most of her photos are wonky eyed.


And my axe.


And my bow.


If this is, indeed, the will of the council, then Gondor will see it done.


We'll fight till the evil is vanquished!


L*o* ***^O***k




Should be colon cancer then, since she talks out of her…




Fuckin iPad sheet music reading nerd.


Common Trump supporter tactic to report people as suicidal.


I've gotten like 3 of those suicidal reports against me this year, its fucking stupid.


“God’s will”


God must be testing her faithfulness. I know that as a parent, I like to injure my kids to see if they will trust me enough to heal them.


I hope she has a successful surgery and a clean recovery. In the same light, I hope she leaves politics and we never hear from her again. She should get a career in something else and live a long life enjoying the company of her family and never try to push her bullsh*t beliefs on other people.


Sadly she will be governor of Arkansas.


We should pronounce it Ar-Kansas. (For our non-US readers, “Arkansas” is pronounced “Are-Can-Saw”)


Like Floor-duh


But ain'ts that proper?


I believe that is against the law in Arkansas.


Like they can read laws, or understand them…. /s


I think this is an “Our-Kansas, not Their-Kansas moment” followed by 30 minutes of hating immigrants.


Her dad also said “how can we get her to stfu!?” Not too long ago …


"And a lot of this, it sounds so good, and it’s such a warm message to say we’re not gonna deny anyone from a preexisting condition. Look, I think that sounds terrific, but I want to ask you something from a common sense perspective. Suppose we applied that principle that you can just come along with whatever condition you have and we’re gonna cover you at the same cost we’re covering everybody else ’cause we wanna be fair. Okay, fine. Then let’s do that with our property insurance. And you can call your insurance agent and say, ‘I’d like to buy some insurance for my house.’ He’d say, ‘Tell me about your house.’ ‘Well sir, it burned down yesterday, but I’d like to insure it today.’ And he’ll say ‘I’m sorry, but we can’t insure it after it’s already burned.’ Well, no preexisting conditions. “How would you like to be able to call your insurance agent for your car and say ‘I want you to insure my car.’ ‘Well tell me about your car.’ ‘Well it was a pretty nice vehicle until my sixteen year-old boy wrecked it yesterday. [He] totaled the thing out but I’d like to get it insurance so we can get it replaced.’ Now how much would a policy cost if it covered everything? About as much as it’s gonna cost for health care in this country.”


Thanks for this, as I'd never heard of it. It's so nonsensical. Thyroid cancer is poorly understood, but the cause probably involves a combination of genetic and environmental factors.. Using Huckabee's house metaphor, ‘I’d like to buy some insurance for my house.’ He’d say, ‘Tell me about your house.’ ‘Well sir, the builder of my house has built others that have failed." "Now how much would a policy cost if it covered terrible builders?" This where she'd be today -- on the streets, if that immoral logic applied.


Actually, my car insurance *will* do that for you.


What a PoS. We’re talking about living beings not your rental property.


He's basically making the argument for socialized health care.


Only if you have empathy.


I’m guessing her dad isn’t Bernie


Mike Huckabee, if you didn’t actually know.


The same guy who wrote a letter to the Judge asking for leniency in sentencing Josh Duggar. Jeebus.


He didn’t…did he?? I haven’t heard about that. Josh Duggar is a pos and should be kept behind bars indefinitely!


Yes, he wrote a letter to the Judge. It was on here during the sentencing, and I wasn’t surprised at all that he wrote one. Pretty sure he’s personal friends with that family.


Being personal friends with the non-pedos…fine but trying to get a lighter sentence for the actual pedo…definitely not ok! Josh Duggar should have been thrown behind bars after fiddling with his sisters imo. I can’t get my head around the fact he was let off the first time!


Josh Duggar, executive director of Family Research Council Action, head guy in charge of rolling back LGBT rights, pointing his morality finger at the gays all while he was diddling underaged girls, four of whom were his sister. Nobody does hypocrisy quite like Republican hypocrisy.


No hate like Christian love.






I don’t even want to know.


For those wondering who Josh Duggar is: he’s a pedo and child molester.


I knew it was a huckaby. I just couldn’t remember the first name. Sarah was press secretary for a little while right? I think she was after the Mooch?


Yes, she was trumps longest serving of 4 press secretaries - second one after Sean Spicer and held the position for about two years. The Mooch wasn’t press secretary, he was the White House communications director for a few days.


Oh right. Thanks for clarifying. So much shit has been crazy it’s hard to keep track of the goons.


Lol yeah, I completely understand. The trump administration was a revolving door with people coming or going seemingly every other day.


Coming, quitting/getting fired/getting indicted


She held like one press conference. She made $180k/yr to do that.


Yup, she mooched for about 30 to 40 Mooches if I recall.


Ah yeah i remember. She’s the fucker who stopped the press conferences.


And was snotty right up ‘til the end.


Seriously, I saw the headline and felt so bad for him. Imagine having to be the lead voice in Congress fighting for railroad workers to have the right to take care of their families, while his own family member was fighting a deadly disease. Then I saw the picture, realized it was *Huckabee*-Sanders, and, well, let's just agree that I'll care about her well being about as much as she cares about mine.


That's also how I describe his daughter's face.


I wouldn't normally condone making fun of someone's appearance, but in this case I feel it can be overloOked.


Best comment I've seen. Thanks for the laugh!


Take my free award for the chuckle.


Remember, it’s what’s inside that counts.


And what’s inside is trying to kill her.


It's just trying to get out and away from her. Like any sane and rational thing would.


God damnit that made me laugh so hard.


And the inside is even worse


At least the outside looks human.


Post surgery update: Sarah Sanders' thyroid was successfully removed. The thyroid is expected to make a full recovery once the effects of Sanders wear off.


Thank you for the laugh!


I was going to say, for the life of me I cannot wish ill will on another.. but this comment got me 😂👍🏾


I'll wish it on your behalf, and on behalf of everyone else who may feel the desire, but can't bring themselves to do it. May all of you have a clear conscience :D


Fuck cancer. But also fuck Sarah Sanders. Two separate, but equal fucks.


Pam: they’re the same fucks.


Coincidentally both are cancers


As someone who had thyroid cancer, it's nowhere near the Huckabee family on the cancer scale. They are far more dangerous and ruin far more lives.


Coincidentally, Sarah Sanders is a big fan of Seperate but Equal


Legally Reddit says I can only say one can be cut out, but politically the other one **SHOULD** be cut out **POLITICALLY**




Yeah but it sure took it's sweet time...




I was expecting the thread to already be locked when I clicked on it tbh


Seems that people really don’t ❤️ Hucakbees


I said something like this when I read the title




It’s hard for me to be happy she is getting that level of care when she’s worked hard against poor people being able to get a high level of care. If she makes full recovery I hope she learns to Ap appreciate how much she has, and maybe starts to appreciate the lives of fellow Americans so she can help ensure they have access to that type of care.




> I hope she learns to appreciate how much she has, and maybe starts to appreciate the lives of fellow Americans i'm sorry, it's a genuinely nice thought and i don't mean to be rude - but this actually made me laugh out loud the woman was the walking definition of a "bad faith" argument the entire time she was supposedly serving the public - i am trying to envision her as earnest and affable and i swear i cannot even picture it


The naïveté that someone like Sarah Sanders is going to have a come to Jesus moment where she realizes vulnerable and needy people exist and deserve love is utterly hilarious. I also laughed out loud when I saw it.


>like Sarah Sanders is going to have a come to Jesus moment the problem is that she's one of those people who truly believe they've already had theirs. their presumed alignment with jesus is what makes all their terrible behaviors A-OK


You may be right, but I tend to think they all know they are pieces of shit. I don’t think they are religious in anyway, but they pretend to be because it’s expected and brings in the votes. They are simply just people with no shame or empathy and will say or do whatever it takes to maintain their positions.


oh, i agree with you on 95%+ of the politicians who claim such adherence. it's just that i think Sanders is actually one of the few who believe their 'mission from god' BS.


And she was so nasty about it to boot


What a nasty woman.


I rather hope she recovers but is haunted by recurring necessary medical procedures to the point she's saddled with such incredible debt that she has to choose between groceries and having a place to live. Maybe then there's the slimmest chance she and her family can understand why our healthcare system is broken.


I don’t think a person born without an empathy gland can spontaneously grow one, but we can pray she is the miracle.


Yeah like that will happen. It's the mentality of "I deserve this care but those other people don't."


"Fuck you got mine." Republican motto.


And if I ain’t got mine, it’s clearly the fault of women/minorities/antifa..


yeah but SHE worked hard all her life and deserves it, OTHER PEOPLE are all lazy and entitled e: /s for the slow children


She is not going to learn shi!


Don't hold your breath.


I really do appreciate that sentiment... but she definitely won't. People like her will come up with any possible rationalization about why their situation is different and their own rules don't apply to themselves. It's happened time and time again.


America got a narrow taste of socialized medicine with COVID tests and vaccines. Free, easy, available, life saving. America, as a whole, chose not to learn a god damned thing from that and is eagerly looking toward paying for COVID-related care out of pocket again.


Woah woah woah, she's just going to have it removed? That's living human tissue with a heartbeat! Carry it to term!


Why is she going against God’s will?


It could totally survive on its own if you provide it with everything it needs in a carefully controlled medical environment! It’s practically already having all these experiences like love!




The health care system wouldn't be so fucked up if political oriented people were forced to have the same care as an average person.


I don't know how to fix Medicare but do know that if Congress had to use Medicare for their health care that we would be in a much better position than we are in right now.


I’m an average American with thyroid cancer. She would throw a fucking fit.


I think by aborting her cancer she went against Gods plan.


He clearly thought it was her natural time to die.


Cancer cells are life!


Why go to a doctor, just say "Jesus take the wheel, er stethoscope."


Another anti 'healthcare as a right' Republican receiving the 'world class care' that she would deny so many people. Sarah Sanders "let them eat cake" What a piece of shit Human.


You speak my mind so I don't have to. Thank you.


"By the grace of God I am now cancer free." Fuck you, Sarah. It was those doctors, and all those scientists that have developed the tools that those doctors utilize, that removed your cancer. And if you think that was because God put those doctors there for you, I gotta ask you, what about all the people who died from cancer BEFORE those technologies were developed?


These types never think God gave them the cancer in the first place for being assholes.


Well yeah it would ruin the "intelligent design" trope. Why would an omnipotent being create something with such a glaring design flaw?


As somebody who is dealing with thyroid cancer and has had his thyroid and lymph nodes removed: yet another piece of fake news from Sanders. You're not cancer free yet. Next step is radioactive iodine treatment because no surgery gets all of those cells. Very preemptively declaring victory over cancer there.


I was thinking the same thing! I *wish* it were that easy. Also, hope you're doing okay. Thyroid cancer sucks. I'm five years out from my surgery/iodine treatment and I know how rough a road it can be, even after active treatment is over. Hang in there, friend.


Thank you! I'm actually right in the middle of my radiactive iodine treatment right now. It has hit me surprisingly hard, but I'm getting through it.


I’m proud of you. My wife went through it in February and besides the terrible diet leading up to it, the isolation was terrible. We were super careful around her because we had a 10 month old baby at the time. That was a tough week


Yeah, the low iodine diet really is the worst. I hope your wife is feeling better!


Yeah but she needs to lie to her idiot supporters for the next 2 months to fund raise for the upcoming election & then she can siphon from her Super PAC to pay her medical bills.


I wish you every bit of luck in your treatment.


So what are you guys doing for dinner tonight? I’m making some spaghetti tonight, trying a new sauce and I’m really excited about it


I tried a new pizza place. Little place that doesn’t even have a website run by a little Greek family. Nicest people. Cheap pizza. Super tasty.


I'm going on a winery tour today and finishing at a burger joint that is located in a brewery. Will be a good day.


Chinese food, we'll probably do spaghetti tomorrow.


Ooh we treated ourselves to lobster rolls and bourbon tonight, a stellar combination!


Chicken pot pie! I'm so excited for it too!


That sounds really good. Maybe I'll make one too. Cheers!


I had a late lunch so probably not going to do much for dinner but maybe some fruit


I had crepes with blueberry jam (melted so that it was like syrup) and a little cream cheese. Fresh baby spinach leaves are good to garnish on spaghetti, but trim the stems.


probably delivery tonight. too tired to cook.


I’m going to the first home football game at the local high school. Looking forward to it! I’ll probably eat something there.


Grilled ham and cheese on sourdough with a little mustard, some quick pickles, some fresh fruit...it's gonna be a good dinner.


Leftover grilled salmon worth some veggies and rice. The seasoning is a lill on the reckless side, but that's on me i guess.


You can’t leave us hanging man — what was your seasoning blend?


Good question, mystery bag from the Safeway deli counter. It's pretty good, but I got too excited and used way to much. The common refrain at the table was asking if anyone wanted fish with their salt.🥲


Tuna noodle casserole. One of my favorites. I couldn't find crispy onions to put on top, so I'm going to use salt+vinegar chips instead.


That's a great idea! Sounds like a nice contrast. My mom used to put salt and vinegar chips on top of chicken salad, it's delicious.


I discovered I can just buy salt and vinegar seasoning. Now everything is salt and vinegar.


Fried shallots are amazing, if you like to do that sort of thing. Just pull them out of the oil when they start to turn golden, otherwise they'll burn.


I just buy the premade fried shallots from the local Vietnamese market. The packaging often mistranslates it as fried red onion.


What's in the sauce?


Gonna try my hand at making my own. Tomato paste, cream (so it gets that orange coloring), garlic, onions, and mushrooms is the game plan


I'm getting a chicken tender sub from Publix.


Chili casserole!


Had an awesome pizza from a $$$$ Italian place and a couple of locally brewed beers. Was great. Love it.


Ditto on the spaghetti sauce! Trying a new gluten-free noodle 😋


Is it [Bongiovanni](https://youtu.be/5znn18tPPD4) brand?


My breadmaker just pumped out a loaf. I'm gonna toast a few slices, butter 'em silly and do some open-face tuna-melts. My dog will join me. We earned it today.


>“Today, I underwent a successful surgery to remove my thyroid and surrounding lymph nodes and **by the grace of God** I am now cancer-free,” Sanders said in a statement released by her campaign. The surgeon has entered the chat.


She's not cancer free until the doctor says so in 5 years. If it was also in her lymph nodes that makes it a little more prone to come back. I know these things because I had Papillary Thyroid cancer in 2017 and was pronounced cancer free this week.


I had it in 2017 too! But I'm not free yet.


My wife had (has?) papillary thyroid cancer and had her thyroid and about 20 lymph nodes removed a little over a year ago. She went through radio-iodine treatment in February and gets screening every couple months. They’re still hesitant to say cancer free until the next round of radio-iodine treatment. And this is one of the most treatable forms of cancer, I can only imagine what people go through with the big bad ones. Fuck cancer. Proud of you


Too bad there's no surgery for cancer of the soul


But! Why? Why did god give her cancer? I don't understand, she's been such an outstanding christian.


The real question is why she didn't just accept that God wanted her to have cancer. Why does she go against God's will? /s


Yeah if the cancer wasn't legitimate, the body has ways to shut it down.


I mean, it's "cancer" but it's not "cancer cancer". ^(You know?)


My dad died of cancer. fuck cancer. But also fuck Sarah sanders


Oh now she wants to listen to medical professionals




*slow clap*


I won't violate the rules of this forum but I think most people can guess what I am thinking about this announcement.


Cancer has cancer?


I didn't know turds could get cancer


Couldn’t have happened to a better person? I don’t think this breaks the rules. It’s an honest question!


May she receive the same care and attention as her average constituent


I've never cashed in my Cancer Card to say something about someone else with cancer. And its tempting. I wish her a speedy recovery. And for birds to poop on her/in her mouth constantly for the rest of her cancer-free days.


Speaking as a person who beat thyroid cancer several years ago, Sarah H Slanders can go fuck herself.


I was gonna go darker. But word. Glad you pulled through.


Hopefully this will end the run for office in Arkansas.


I don’t feel bad for her.


She should get her stanky eye looked at too, but I think now she has a pre-existing condition soooo...


Fuck Cancer. Fuck Huckabee-Sanders.


I always thought "Huckabee-Sanders" sounds like an American restaurant chain.


It sounds like a cage match between Mike Huckabee and Colonel Sanders. My money is on Sanders.


Now I'm picturing the Colonel dunking his opponent's head in a vat of hot oil.


The food would be super greasy.


One and the same


All those lies got stuck in her craw.


We must pray for poor Aunt Lydia :P


Good thing she has health insurance.


If god gives a MAGA parasite cancer, will anyone care?


I’m not an oncologist. Can thyroid cancer be caused by being a hateful, lying, vindictive, bitch?


Thyroid Cancer? It’s terrible that ANYONE EVER gets ANY KIND of cancer, but Thyroid Cancer? It’s the hang nail of cancers.


Did she try praying instead, since she’s all about the man in the sky?


That poor thyroid cancer.


I wish her a fast recovery but on the other hand I’m not surprised her thyroid got cancer given the amount of bullshit that goes through it


What, no Ivermectin and bleach?
