BREAKING: Sarah Sanders Leaving White House

NPR’s Sarah McCammon reports:

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders is leaving the White House, President Trump tweeted on Thursday.

“After 3 1/2 years, our wonderful Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be leaving the White House at the end of the month and going home to the Great State of Arkansas,” Trump said. “She is a very special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job! I hope she decides to run for Governor of Arkansas – she would be fantastic. Sarah, thank you for a job well done!”

We’ll update when the next press secretary is announced–not that it matters much.

    Another Trump diversion special. He was getting beaten up for opening up his campaign to foreign players so he threw Sanders under the bus.

      All those lies, all that groveling and scraping, all that sycophancy . . . 

      . . . and the [   ] still gets shipped off to the gulag Arkansas?!

        Trump tweet confirms my feeling … saying Sarah has been in the White House for 3 1/2 years hints that this nightmare has been going on WAY longer than I thought possible.

        The well-known "spend more time with my children" DID make an appearance.

        Trump's speculation about Sarah's future as a strong Governor of Arkansas was a nice touch.

    "You're out, Tom."


    Now it's wartime 

  3. Post soon to be filled by Mick Mulvaney, because he's only got three official titles so far.

    Hucky BooBoo, say it ain’t so. 

    Really glad to see you go. 

    Lied for your boss who broke the law

    Skulking back to Arkansas

    Good Riddance.

    I doubt it'll actually be Mulvaney, but who next is willing to ruin him or herself permanently by being his mouthpiece will be interesting, to say the least. Maybe he’ll promote Kellyanne to an actual job.

    Meh. She was leaving at the end of December, too. I'll believe it when/if it actually happens.

    One way or the other, we can pretty much guarantee the Dump administration won't be able to replicate the unhinged fucknuttery of Melissa McCarthy impersonator Sean Spicer. Those were the days.

      Suckabee did her job. She discontinued press briefings and has prepared the world for hearing only from the OD himself.

      Don't expect there to be a functioning press office at the Whitest House. Suckabee burned it down…someone else will sweep up the mess.
