Former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will no doubt go down in history as one of the most well known yet controversial figures of the Trump administration. The left leaning organization American Bridge is hoping to ensure that her legacy ends here and now.

American Bridge recently sent out a mass email containing an open letter calling for American CEOs to refuse to hire Sarah Sanders on the basis of her job performance as Trump’s Press Secretary. They hope to collect as many signatures as possible on the petition to ensure she is not hired in any capacity to serve the American people again.

Many Democrats say Sanders blatantly lied for the President, deflected blame for him in many situations, and constantly appeared as an actively untrustworthy representation of the American Presidency. The letter effectively sums up the opinions of many Americans on Sanders and calls for the nation’s business leaders to act now to stop her from continuing.
Take a look below at excerpts from the American Bridge open letter: “Hello: We signed an open letter to America’s CEOs demanding they won’t hire anyone from the Trump administration who was complicit in Trump’s family separation policy.

Trump just announced that Sarah Sanders, his long-time press secretary and avid liar from the White House podium, will be leaving his administration at the end of the month. Sanders will no doubt be looking for her next big gig––but CEOs must reject her resume.

Sanders spread misinformation, deflected blame, and did her best to cover for Trump at the expense of the truth about the family separation policy.” The email also read “50,000 SIGNATURES NEEDED → Tell America’s CEOs: Don’t hire Sarah Sanders!” in hopes of gaining support from as many as possible and continues:

Because of their negligence, children have died. Their inaction and negligence did not happen in a vacuum. Senior members of the Trump administration played a role, many helping craft, implement, and defend this heinous policy. Some of these individuals have left the administration in recent months. Regardless of when they leave, they should not be allowed to seek refuge in your boardrooms or corner offices. Allowing them to step off of the revolving door and into your welcoming arms should be a nonstarter. Many of you spoke out against this barbaric policy. However strong the opposition, your words are meaningless unless they are backed up with resolute action. We call on you to make it clear that you will not hire for employment, contract for consulting, or seat on your boards, anyone involved in the development or implementation of the Trump administration’s family separation immigration policy.” Republicans, who have notoriously labeled their liberal counterparts “snowflakes,” are losing their minds in retaliation to what they see as a vehement attack on Sanders. Many in the GOP and the far right believe this is an unfair boycott and some have even called for conservatives to stage their own boycotts in schools, workplaces, etc. to prove their point.
