….She is a very special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job! I hope she decides to run for Governor of Arkansas – she would be fantastic. Sarah, thank you for a job well done!

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will leave the job at the end of the month, President Donald Trump said Thursday.
Sanders had an often adversarial relationship with the press.
The press secretary faced criticism for giving answers from the White House podium that were misleading or contradicted what the president’s public comments. In one notable episode, she claimed after former FBI Director James Comey’s firing that “countless” agents within the bureau had lost confidence in him. Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on his Russia investigation released in May contradicted her characterization.
This year, the press secretary largely disappeared from the job’s traditional role as the public face of the administration. She last held a press briefing on March 11, 94 days ago.
No great loss since Huckabee Sanders stopped doing what she was hired to do over three months ago, and up until then did a piss poor job of it.
This is quite a day for the female liars in the Trump White House.
One is being forced out for violating federal guidelines and the other is either leaving or being fired after being the most dishonest press secretary in American history.
And now Donald Trump is left even more isolated than before.
