WH Press Sec Sarah Sanders Vaguely Addresses News She’s Planning Her Exit

WH Press Sec Sarah Sanders Vaguely Addresses News She’s Planning Her Exit

“Does CBS know something I don’t about my plans and my future?”

Earlier this evening, CBS reported White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah were not long for the White House staff.

CBS reported:

Two of the most visible members of the Trump administration are planning their departures, the latest sign of upheaval in a White House marked by turmoil.

Press secretary Sarah Sanders and principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah are both heading for the exits, according to sources inside the White House and close to the administration. Sanders, who has become a confidante of President Trump since the departure of former communications director Hope Hicks, has told friends that she plans to leave the administration at the end of the year.

Shah is also considering his exit, but he has not yet settled on an exact date. Neither Sanders nor Shah responded to repeated requests for comment before this story was published.

Shortly after the CBS report, Sanders tweeted:

Sanders doesn’t say she’s staying, just that she loves her job, but she doesn’t mention leaving either.

Fox News later reported both Shah and Sanders are weighing their options:

Both Sanders and Shah are weighing future options, Fox News has learned, which may or may not include their departures from the White House.

Sanders has talked about departing sometime after November’s mid-term elections and although Shah’s timetable is unclear, it could possibly come sooner – although both could remain in their roles, too.

I Sincerely hope Sarah stays on,
She is great and brings a confident expertise to her job as press secretary

She will be hard to replace!

    I doubt that there is anyone who could replace her. She’s the best I’ve ever seen at the job, and I’ve been watching since Eisenhower was president.

    I hope she stays at least as long as Trump does — she’s doing him a great service, besides being a refreshing change from the parade of lying idiots who’ve filled the slot in recent times.

Don’t know if you are leaving or not, Sarah, but if you do go, please take the opportunity to kick little Jimmy Acosta out of the White House press pool.

These clowns have been making up this stuff since BEFORE Trump had appointed anyone!

Kelly is quitting – or being fired. Nielson (Sec. of DHS) is being fired – or quitting. Jeff Sessions is being fired – or quitting…….. I can’t even think of them all, there have been so many!

She is doing a BRILLIANT job! Trump isn’t going to fire her, and she isn’t going to quit. It’s these people projecting what THEY WANT, and believing if they print it and speak it enough it will be true. Repetition makes reality to these FAKE NEWS PROPAGANDISTS.

Disgraceful – and frankly, dangerous. News is truly dead in the U.S. media.

So Sarah could leave at the end of the year.
Or she might not.

Gee, thanks CBS. What would we ever do without you?

So here we have “the latest sign of upheaval in a White House marked by turmoil.” And she might leave “at the end of the year.” Some turmoil. But we’ve gotta keep the narrative moovin’ along.

The palpable desperation of the MSM to undermine the WH at every turn has metamorphosed into the desire to undermine the social and economic fabric of the US. In their retreat they dementedly implement a scorched earth policy, forgetting in the blindness of their ideologically motivated loathing that it is themselves they destroy.

That Sarah Sanders hasn’t yet retired with PTSD, shell shock and chronic fatigue is a damned marvel. She is some kind of very special woman. She will doubtless remain in place doing what she does best until she formally announces otherwise.

More fake news. What a surprise.

Press Secretary for a Republican President has to be one of the worst jobs in the world. I’d rather gargle with Raid than force myself to be even semi-civil to those Press yahoos.

From the comment she made it doesn’t really sound like someone leaving. Sure, she could be planning it, but I thought it came across as “they knew her plans while mind reading or something like that”, not talking to her, and her professing to love the job, it just sounds like a nothing.

I do think the position is a hard one, having to deal with some of those reporters who instead of being briefed seem to take it as a confrontation each and every time. I can see burn out being high with it, especially with the hostility of the media with this president. Can’t say I would blame anyone having enough of it after a year or so.

This just seems more of the crap the media loves to spread, make up a rumor, put out that it’s sources who are saying it, while not even asking her. Like it is more of a hope than actual news.

On general principle, I will not ascribe a different meaning to “Do you know something that I don’t?” than has existed for the last several decades. I will respect her plans, or lack thereof.

People don’t stay in these jobs very long. Why stay if you can get make millions on the outside.

Could it be a brilliant bit of trolling to expose a “leaker”? Make a suggestion to someone in confidence to see if a rumor spreads? I’ve done it myself to see who is the root of a grapevine.

Sarah is immensely popular, and she has been doing a wonderful job. She is a great asset to the administration.

The daily press conferences have become a joke.
All they are are indulgences to leftist psychos who have no other way of getting attention.

Treat the democract media lime the corrupt propagandists they are.

Say whatever it takes to fill the ’24 hour per day’ news cycle. What they consider news is typically baloney.

Sanders doesn’t say she’s staying, just that she loves her job, but she doesn’t mention leaving either.

IOW, she didn’t say this, but she didn’t say that, either.

Please, let’s leave that kind of writing to the fake news folks.

    I didn’t look at the author of the article. As soon as I read that line, I knew who the author was, looking merely confirmed it.
    Still a rabid NeverTrumper

What constitutes “upheaval” and “turmoil?” To me, it has seemed pretty stable of late. Sure there has been some shifting around, but since Kelly and Bolton, the number of personnel changes dropped noticeably.

C’mon, Kaye, quit frothing and blathering. Get some real news and report it. Don’t just get all vague on this issue.

She’s pretty clear about what’s going on.

The way you slant it just tells me you aren’t worthy or trustworthy enough to write on Legal. Even if what you write is free to the perfesser it isn’t worth it.

    Ummm, Kimberely is accurately reporting a frothy, blathering article by CBS. The stupidity is not from her.

      vanderleun in reply to Valerie. | June 14, 2018 at 1:02 pm

      Alas it is. She just hides behind the other.

      “Sanders doesn’t say she’s staying, just that she loves her job, but she doesn’t mention leaving either.”

        healthguyfsu in reply to vanderleun. | June 14, 2018 at 1:37 pm

        This is silly. In that sentence, she’s explaining the folly of CBS reporting on it at all since it’s a weak rumor. You seem to have missed the point.

Alas, you seem to have missed the journalism class on passive-aggressive reporting.

Poorly written headline. It’s not “news”, it’s a rumor, and she was right to sneer at it.
