ABC News' "The View" on Monday criticized outgoing press secretary Sarah Sanders as "lying" and unfit for a public office.

"All I will remember about Sarah Sanders, is that it was less than transparent, and that after the dismissal of the FBI director by James Comey, Trump had said that". she had talked to countless FBI members and that they had no confidence in him, "Hostin said. "And then, under oath, when she was interviewed by Mueller's team, she said the feeling … was based on nothing."
Hostin said the contradictory comments prove that Sanders is a "liar".
"No kidding," said Joy Behar, co-host.

"We went through a lot of things together and she's tough, but she's fine," Trump said Thursday.
Sanders called serving the president "an honor of a lifetime" and declared that she "could not be more proud" of the work of the administration. But the gabfest of the day does not agree with the future press officer.
Hostin said Sanders "had diminished the post" she had held and that "the people of the United States" had no confidence in her.
"They should bring [Anthony] Scaramucci. At least we'll be entertained by him while he's lying, "Behar said.

She then joined the Trump campaign and then the Trump administration as a communications assistant at the White House. She was promoted to press secretary at the White House in 2017 after the resignation of the first president's spokesperson, Sean Spicer.
If she chooses to follow in her father's footsteps, the governor's seat will open in 2022, but Hostin does not think it's a good idea.
"I do not think she should be running for public office," Hostin said.
