Sarah Sanders Responds To CBS Report She Is Leaving: "Do They Know Something I Don't?"

Update: Sarah Sanders has tweeted a denial of sorts asking "Does CBS know something I don't know about my future?"

More fake news?

*  *  *

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders and principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah are both planning their exit from the Trump administration according to CBS News, citing "sources inside the White House and close to the administration" - so don't take any of this to the bank. 

Sanders would leave at the end of the year, while Shah reportedly hasn't picked a date for his exit. 

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 immediately responded to repeated requests for comment.

Several other lower-level positions in the communications department left vacant in recent weeks are likely to remain unfilled, with more departures expected in the coming weeks, according to a former official. -CBS

The departures, if true, would be the latest in a string of West Wing vacancies - including former Economic adviser Gary Cohn, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka - to name a few. 

Over the course of the Trump administration, the White House has consolidated its workforce, eliminating jobs and assigning multiple portfolios of responsibility to individual staffers. Some positions have never been filled. Despite the smaller number of positions, the record-setting turnover rate has not slowed. Less than halfway through Mr. Trump's term, the turnover rate stands at 51 percent, according to the Brookings Institution. Turnover during Mr. Trump's first year in office was 34 percent -- nearly four times higher than turnover during the first year of the Obama administration.

Yes, maybe, but we're guessing much of that turnover consists of Obama holdovers "not adjusting well" to the new culture, or general swamp draining activities. 

Also of note, Sanders' departure at the end of the year would put her tenure in the White House roughly in line with previous press secretaries, many of whom also had to deal with Jim Acosta.

While there has been no official denials from either Sanders or Shah, WaPo's Josh Dawsey implies "don't hold your breath" for their departure...

Sarah is doing a great job. I don't know how she does it. I would probably go postal in that frik'n press room and kill every mother fucking one of them. Starting with Acosta. Obviously. After finishing, should Acosta still be moaning, I would say "Oh. You want a followup? Well here is a followup", and empty annother clip into his sorry ass carcass. As I waded through the bodies I would probably mutter "Fake News, Very Fake News"

Not my line of work. Fortunately.

BaBoony is not to be taken serious.  This individual has syphilis of the brain and basically comments on every subject for the sole purposes of having something else to do than wrestle with the Fridg.

HELLO SPAM-LOVERS!!!   BIG UP from the SPAMMER BUNKHOUSE here in the Methfilled Valley Trailer Park in Methfilled Valley, PA.  Good to see my men Wadalt and   bobcatz and  cheoll and  Leakanthrophy and PrivetHedge  and our newbies  ll951983  and  gzcekkyret  out from under the couch sucking their own dicks and back on the threads SPAMMING like a Grease Fire!!!! 

Biblicism     AND    TodaysFox ("I made $7000 sucking cock on the Internet")  IT's ALL THE SAME SPAMMER!

THIS is an important week here in the SPAMMER's BUNKHOUSE (the leaking moldy single-wide in the trailer park).  This week I (we?) are celebrating SEVEN YEARS here on ZH, obsessively SPAMMING every thread we can with off-topic comments.  You see, there are dozens of "personalities" living in this one single sad SPAMMER's sick little mind, which he calls "Spammer's Bunkhouse."  How sick is that? 

Each of "us" (these innumerable fake log-on's) is represented by an ACTION FIGURE that Master Spammer ("DARWIN" is his name -- can you believe that?)  lines up on his kitchen counter and TALKS TO!!  WHACK JOB!!!

 

SAD BUT TRUE!!  I (we?) have wasted my (our) youth (or at least the last seven years) with at least one hand in my pants and the other hand SPAMMING ZH.  Yes, indeed.  DOZENS and DOZENS (maybe hundreds) of log-on's banned -- 
>>  "I made $7500 last week on the Internet sucking cock!": that's me.
>>  Biblicism: that's me.
>>  All the porn at Celebrity-leaks: that's me.
>>  Daily Westerner: that's me.

>>  "In the news....SPAMMER broomsticked by furious readers" -- registered in Nigeria) :: that's me TOO!! 

That's our life (all of us living in Master Spammer's Mind): mopping the floor at the Porn Cinema at 2am, working the French Frier at SONIC (demoted from the drive-thru window 'cuz my ZIT-covered face scared the customers), sucking cock on the Internet, and spamming ZH with an enormous Excel spreadsheet of the log-on's of dozens of "digital friends" who upvote one another and virtually suck my little micro penis..

MEET my current imaginary friends.  We all live in one SPAMMER's HEAD (and as ACTION FIGURES on his kitchen counter) but as for me, I have gone off the reservation.  These other "personalities" are pretty troubled.

You've only been here three months, moron. How do you know what was here a few years ago? Worthless lurker huh? ASSHAT!!!

Nmewn's been here 8 years 2 months. Myself 8 years 10 months.

As if that makes one whit of difference anon coward cunt, and I have been here before for years both as a passive reader and member. HA HA! The registration date on a website your only claim to fame, you pathetic little nothing. You are a zero, an irrelevant, screeching little fairy howling for attention in the vast wilderness of cyberspace.

And as if I give a rat's ass about any "up" or "down" votes. What a howl.

That's sweet though, coming to the aid and comfort of your fellow anon cunt serial liar copy-and-paste pal spewmen while she gets her ass handed to her yet again. Do you give her a reach around in these times of stress and millennial angst while being called out for the fantasy liars and mindless millennial LGBT pukes you both are?

Truth tellers here are an existential threat to scum like you and your lying, hallucinating butt-buddy gang-bangers here as you instinctively know we will eventually nail you for what you are, hence your terror at our very presence.

Go get the rest of your little pals in on this one too and I will wipe the floor with you again just as I do each and every time you stick your shit-covered heads up out of your sewer.

Lying little millennial cunt, do you honestly believe any adult reading your illiterate, juvenile, self-humiliating bullshit would buy into that garbage for one second? HA HA!

And where did your little anon-coward pal spewmn run off to? Bugged out on you did he after calling you in to "fight" her battle for her did he? You know what happens when that happens in the real world in a real brawl with real men don't you, mincing, prancing fairy? That's right, you wind up either dead or in the hospital. Best take that lesson to heart and never make the mistake of pulling your little bullshit act with real men in the real world while hallucinating you are here in the comment section of ZH cowering behind and protected by the skirts of anonymity.

Awww, and another anon coward cunt darts out from behind the skirts of her fellow shitbag gang-bangers attempting to score a few points with her gaggle of circle-jerking shitbag losers. Want a piece of this action, callow cockbreath pussy? Got the nuts to go one on one without your little pals holding your widdle hand?

HA HA!

What is so exhausting about taking questions from reporters-  it's not like she is tearing off shingles or pouring concrete all day- although she is built for it.

Use only as a last resort.

Arab walks into a pet store to buy a parrot, and finds a nice one.  The shop keeper tells him, this parrot is not for you as he was owned by a Jew and hates Arabs.  The Arab doesn't care, buys the parrot and takes him home.  At home the Arab tries to give Polly a cracker but she responds "Moshe says Fuck You!"  Taken aback he repeats with the same results.  Incensed the Arab threatens to cut Polly's tongue out if she repeats the phrase, and she does. The Arab then removes Polly's tongue and with a smirk on his face asks her "What do you have to say to that?". Polly gathers her strength, moves one wing over her eye and with the other wing gives the Arab the middle feather.

Tough job.   Has to answer difficult questions on the fly.   Not sure why a press secretary is necessary in the first place.   If you can't understand what comes out of the President's mouth, well, that's the reporter's fault.
