Sarah Sanders Leaving White House

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders is going to be leaving her job at the end of this month.

The transition was officially announced (where else?) on Twitter by President Trump.


Sarah Sanders confirmed the news herself at today’s White House event, when the president called her forward.

Sanders called serving the president an “honor of a lifetime” and said she “couldn’t be prouder” of the administration’s work.”

“I’ve loved every minute, even the hard minutes,” Sanders said at the event, calling her role the “most special experience” of her life second only to being a mom of three.”


Cue the haters.

Reps. Don Beyer, D-Va., and Mark Pocan, Wis., both unleashed a series of criticism — mainly focusing on the accusation that she lied for the president.”

“She will be remembered for disgracing her office, ushering in an era of opacity unprecedented in the modern era, publicly treating journalists like dirt, assailing the First Amendment to the Constitution, and lying directly to the American people who paid her salary,” Beyer tweeted on Thursday.”

Meanwhile, Pocan mocked Trump’s tweet describing Sanders as having “extraordinary talents.”

“Extraordinary talents including lying, lying with a straight face, defending the President’s lies, dodging questions, falsely claiming ignorance, not holding daily press briefings, and…lying,” he tweeted.”

Others like Rep. Joyce Beatty, D-Ohio, piled on. Beatty, in particular, took aim at Sanders’ eventual refusal to hold press briefings.”

Being the press secretary is a pretty thankless job. No one denies that it requires spin and putting the best possible face on the political news of the day for the administration. Sarah Sanders put up with a ton of crap from the press corps, from the left (why do certain people on the left enjoy mocking a woman’s appearance because they disagree with her politically?), and from social justice warriors posing as restaurant owners, and she’s walking away from her job on good terms with her boss and with a smile on her face.

May Sarah Sanders find success – and peace and quiet – back home. And here’s hoping that whomever her successor is, has an equally thick skin.
