Update: Following comments from McMaster and Mnuchin on Venezuelan sanctions, pretty much every question at today's White House press briefing was related to Scaramucci's sudden dismissal. And while Sanders made it clear early on that she wasn't going to offer any incremental details beyond the official statement released earlier, it didn't stop pretty much every reporter from asking the exact same quetion over and over.
*SANDERS: SCARAMUCCI HAS NO ROLE AT THIS TIME IN ADMINISTRATION
*SANDERS: ALL WHITE HOUSE STAFF REPORT TO CHIEF OF STAFF KELLY
*SANDERS: DECLINES TO SAY IF TRUMP REGRETS HIRING SCARAMUCCI
*SANDERS: ALL OTHER STAFF MEMBERS PLANNING TO REMAIN IN POSTS
*SANDERS: NOT AWARE OF ANY CHANGES IN SPICER'S EXITING STATUS

After the White House bombshell of the day dropped just one hour ago, in the form of Anthony Scaramucci's sudden dismissal following just 10 days as the Communications Director, Sarah Sanders has the distinguished honor of taking the podium momentarily to attempt to explain to an anxious press pool what exactly is going on inside the White House.
And while probably no one, including Sanders, has any real idea what the future holds for the White House, the "no WH chaos!" announcement from Trump earlier today is looking increasingly unlikely.
