Sarah Sanders Tag

President Donald Trump announced on Thursday that Press Secretary Sarah Sanders will leave at the end of the month. From Fox News:
Trump's announcement came moments before he made remarks at a White House event on its "Second Chance" program boosting hiring of criminals who have served their sentences. "We've been through a lot together and she's tough, but she's good," Trump said at the event Thursday.

CNN's Jim Acosta is nothing if not predictable. In the middle of the Democratic party infighting caused by the anti-Semitic rhetoric we've heard from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) in recent weeks, Acosta saw fit not to question the comments themselves, but instead President Trump's grim assessment of the Democratic party's relationship with the Jewish community.

The government has three days to come up with a plan to avoid a partial government shutdown on Friday. As of today, it looks like if it happens, the blame will fall on the Democrats instead of President Donald Trump. The Democrats rejected the latest offer from the GOP even though the White House said officials may "have other ways" to achieve raising $5 billion for a border wall.

We covered earlier today how CNN's Jim Acosta refused to hand over a White House microphone when asked to do so, instead insisting on continuing to shout questions after already having asked a question and engaged in a back and forth with Trump. Trump tried to call on other reporters, and directed a female staffer to get the microphone from Acosta and give it to the next questioner. But Acosts physically prevented the female staffer from getting the microphone out of his hands.

Friday night, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and her family were asked to leave the Red Hen, a restaurant in Virginia, because she works for Trump. She wasn't booted out by a low-level employee but by the restaurant owner. Sanders handled the ordeal well, saying of the Red Hen owner, "Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so."
