So, she has a weakness!
Press secretary Sarah Sanders recently told The New York Times that if there’s anything that bothers her, it’s being called a liar. In a May 23rd article, Sanders admits “it certainly bothers me,” stating “because one of the few things you have are your integrity and reputation.”
Sarah Sanders: Being called a liar 'bothers me'.
Just some friendly advice…

Though she hates being called a liar, PolitiFact pinpointed four different instances where Sanders’ was caught giving objectively false information. Remember when she claimed that diversity visa immigrants weren’t vetted? That’s not correct at all.
The first reporter to stand up and calls Sarah Sanders a liar before storming out of the press room during one of her lie-fests will go down in history as a true HERO and warrior of our freedom of the press.
Have the courage!

Same as when she claimed news outlets reported President Barack Obama ordered wiretapping on Trump. According to PolitiFact, there were no instances of the media accusing Obama of wiretapping President Trump
Sanders kind of covers her tracks by stating, “There’s a difference between misspeaking or not knowing something than maliciously lying.” The thing is, one side of the spectrum doesn’t quite buy that she doesn’t spew misinformation and isn’t part of the problem within Trump’s White House.
Sarah Sanders says it “bothers me” when people call her a liar.
Let's take a stroll through some of her lies, falsehoods and hilariously misleading responses to questions from reporters. https://t.co/JcmTYDOPmz

Some of Sanders’ lies are downright obvious, such as her response when President Trump tweeted: “The Fake News is working overtime. Just reported that, despite the tremendous success we are having with the economy & all things else, 01% of the Network News about me is negative (Fake). Why do we work so hard in working with the media when it is corrupt? Take away credentials?”

Right after he tweeted that, Sanders came out and said that the Trump administration is “committed to a free press.” It’s like they’re not even trying.
If it “bothers” @PressSec Sarah Sanders to be called a liar, than perhaps she should stand up to those in the White House who would have her consistently lie to the press day in and day out. She is utterly complicit and has no leg to stand on in this matter.

If it weren’t such a miserable state of affairs, it would actually be a little laughable how easy it is to call out Sanders’ lies. As CountessofNambia (@theClaudialnez) puts it, there are far worse things that Sanders should be bothered by that don’t seem to crack her thick, outer, robot-like exterior.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders announces she is bothered by being called a liar.
She is fine with mass shootings, racist attacks, hate crimes, deporting mothers away from children, colluding with Russia, attacking Hillary n Obama, alternative facts, and Satan.
But don't call her a liar
