Sources at the White House—a great place to work for ten days, a year tops—told CBS on Wednesday that press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders (this lady) is planning to leave her position by the end of the year. The same report had it that principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah is also considering leaving his post.
Neither Sanders nor Shah responded to CBS’s request for comment, and no timetable as provided as to Shah’s potential departure. Sanders, who replaced former press secretary Sean “Spicey” Spicer after he resigned in July, did tweet a response on Wednesday evening, denying the report of her imminent departure:
It’s only a matter of hours before the President chimes in from some bathroom to say, approximately, “failing CBS so disrespectful to amazing patriot blah blah blah.”
