The kindest thing you can say about Sarah Sanders is that she was completely useless. Here’s the thing though: Sanders was never really hired to be a press secretary. Her real job was to be the female face of a deeply misogynistic administration; to play the role of the empowered working mother and make the Trump administration’s crass patriarchy more palatable. Sanders is far from the only woman to have played an important role in the Trump administration. These footsoldiers of the patriarchy have helped to roll back women’s rights and reinforce inequality while allowing the Trump administration to boast about “empowering women”.
