Who Will Replace Sarah Sanders as White House Press Secretary?

Who Will Replace Sarah Sanders as White House Press Secretary?

“the president is expected to start talking to potential candidates in the coming days”

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced last week that she is retiring from the demanding position. The question on many minds now: Who will take her place?

The Sarah Sanders replacement sweepstakes begins

The sweepstakes to replace Sarah Huckabee Sanders is already in full swing just one day after the White House press secretary announced plans to step down.

President Donald Trump has started having conversations with Sanders and others about who should be his next press secretary, according to one person familiar with the matter. And the president is expected to start talking to potential candidates in the coming days, the person added. Meanwhile, White House aides and Trump’s outside advisers have immediately started discussing candidates and handicapping their chances of getting the job.

At the top of the shortlist of candidates is Stephanie Grisham, first lady Melania Trump’s deputy chief of staff and communications director, according to multiple White House officials and people close to Trump. Grisham has been working at the White House for the entirety of Trump’s time in office, and before that worked on his campaign and transition team. She is well-liked by the president and other senior White House aides.

President Trump gave Sanders quite a friendly send off. Watch below:

In the age of Trump, this is a job that requires a particularly thick skin. Reporters in the White House press pool woke up from their eight-year nap under Obama and want to appear aggressive.

Amber Athey of the Daily Caller has some suggestions:

Here’s Who Could Replace White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders

President Donald Trump announced Thursday that White House press secretary Sarah Sanders is resigning her post at the end of June, sparking rumors about her potential replacement.

Several possible names have been floated in reports.

Here’s the latest:

Mollie Hemingway

Hemingway, a senior editor at The Federalist and a Fox News contributor, may be in consideration for the role. Hemingway gained major prominence over the past two years for her reporting and commentary on the origins of the Mueller investigation and the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Hogan Gidley

Gidley has served as the White House deputy press secretary for the past two and a half years, making him a natural replacement for Sanders. Gidley reportedly has 4:1 betting odds of becoming the next press secretary, although White House officials told CBS News that they don’t believe Sanders’ replacement will come from the current press office.

Stephanie Grisham

Trump is also a fan of First Lady Melania Trump’s current spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, who has been with the president’s team since the campaign days. Grisham has aggressively defended Melania against negative press reports, perhaps making her a natural fit for Trump’s press shop.

My two cents? Mollie Hemingway would be an outstanding choice.

The best candidate would be a black gay transgender. That person would be untouchable by the liberal left 🙂

    “That person would be untouchable…”

    No, just no. The commies will destroy anything and anyone that stands in their path.

    No to mention it is the progs that hate blacks and gays, using them when it suits and casting them to the wolves when that works.

      Yeah, I’ll second that. If he hires somebody who the Left can cast in any way as some sort of token hire, they will carp endlessly about it to the complete and total exclusion of whatever he/she is saying. They tried it and failed with Sarah, complaining that she was some sort of sop to her father and just a woman being used for that position to hide Trump’s rabid anti-woman agenda et al… Giving these lying (censoreds) more than one handle to grab and we’d never hear the end of it until 2090.

It has become a crap job thanks to the daily encounters with vermin.

Molly Hemmingway would be awesome. I would also suggest Ali Alexander would be great.

But head exploding awesome would be Milo.

Whomever Trump picks, Sarah Sanders will be the most congenial host the WH press corps will see. Expect the next person to fill the role to be a viper that will treat the press with the disdain they deserve. Don’t expect Trump to pick an establishment stand-in to make nice with them; expect an expert troll than can roll the press as easily as he does. I would expect nothing less, nor do I want Trump to go in a conciliatory direction with the press; it’s not possible anyway and he knows it.

Mollie would be outstanding. I also think a real head-knocker like Dan Bongino would have the snowflakes melting big time.

Candace Owens

Sarah was one of President Trump’s finest picks. In watching half a century of this stuff, she was the best ever. Hard to replace.

Ari Fleshier…sarcastic witty, I always enjoyed his performances

Just prop a carnival fun-house mirror in front of the podium. By the time the media figures it out, Trump will have been sworn in for his second term.

I have some spare time if they want to see some fireworks. Gotta have my own parking space and I prefer binary, left-handed, green-eyed interns.

Mark Steyn. And let the delicious fireworks begin.

Bring Godzilla out of retirement. Angry and hungry. As long as he is not on a brains only diet, he should do just fine with the WH press corp.

Mollie would be a great choice. I also like Tammy Bruce.

I’ll do it, for 90 days only. The over/under on press corps remaining intact would be about 30 days.

Mollie is a great reporter. If she became the WH spokeswoman, she´d have to stop being a reporter. So, no, pick somebody else.

Alex Jones!

Having been destroyed by the left, the daily press conference has become nothing more than wiping obama’s behind when he soils himself, or trying to destroy anyone not a democat or swamp dweller.

Ditch the daily press conferences, just release a writing. Let the democrat media idiots submit questions by email – which are answered online, on the White House website.

Doesn’t matter. Whoever is selected, there will be no press secretary to announce the selection to the press.

“White House Gripped By Paralysis!”

Here’s a thought that just occurred to me: how about Dan Patrick, Lt Gov of Texas? He’s a solid conservative and had his own radio talk show.

Sarah Sanders was good. She wasn’t great but she was good. I always feel much better when we have someone who comes off as confident, strong, command of english language, witty and outstanding in their quick, destroy your spin immediately responses. As much as I like her, she just didn’t off strong and confident enough.
