“Sarah Huckabee Sanders, one of the more controversial holders of the office of White House Press Secretary in recent memory, will join Fox News Channel as a contributor,” Variety reports.
Politico: “While Sanders and her associates have been quietly talking about the possibility for months, sometimes in jest, she has shown renewed interest in the prospect as she’s started contemplating her post-White House plans… Sanders and her allies have started making calls to donors and Republican operatives in the state.”
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told Politico that she hopes to be remembered as being “transparent and honest” when her tenure comes to an end.
Said Sanders: “I hope that it will be that I showed up every day and I did the very best job that I could to put forward the president’s message, to do the best job that I could to answer questions. To be transparent and honest throughout that process and do everything I could to make America a little better that day than it was the day before.”
Stormy Daniels: “And I hope to be remembered for being a virgin.”
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, who is leaving her role at the end of the month, has floated the possibility of running for Arkansas governor in recent private conversations, CNN reports.
“Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson was re-elected just last year, so unless he steps down early — or is appointed to something — the governor’s office in Little Rock isn’t open until January 2023.”
President Trump announced on Twitter that White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders is leaving her post at the end of the month.
Said Trump: “I hope she decides to run for Governor of Arkansas – she would be fantastic.”
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told CNN that she has been interviewed by special counsel Robert Mueller: “The President urged me, like he has everyone in the administration, to fully cooperate with the special counsel. I was happy to voluntarily sit down with them.”
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told the Christian Broadcast Network that she believes God wanted President Trump to win the 2016 election.
Said Sanders: “I think God calls all of us to fill different roles at different times and I think that he wanted Donald Trump to become president, and that’s why he’s there.”
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders is expected to receive Secret Service protection as soon as Wednesday, CNN reports.
“The news comes days after Sanders was asked to leave a small Lexington, Virginia, restaurant because of her role with the Trump administration, a move that has since sparked a national conversation on civility and public service in the age of Trump.”
President Trump slammed The Red Hen, a restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, in a tweet following the controversy after Sarah Sanders was asked to leave by the restaurant’s owner.
The Red Hen Restaurant should focus more on cleaning its filthy canopies, doors and windows (badly needs a paint job) rather than refusing to serve a fine person like Sarah Huckabee Sanders. I always had a rule, if a restaurant is dirty on the outside, it is dirty on the inside!
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was thrown out of a Virginia restaurant Friday night after the owner took issue with her role as “Trump’s mouthpiece,” the Daily Beast reports.
Washington Post: “By virtue of her position, Sanders is inextricably bound in the mistruths of the Trump administration. She is a willing warrior for Trump, and her critics say she should be held accountable for his utterances — from the untruthful to the racist to the sexist. Since taking office, Trump has made more than 3,000 false or misleading claims, according to an analysis by The Washington Post’s Fact Checker.”
“Sanders said she first learned that Trump had reimbursed Cohen by watching Giuliani’s interview with Hannity. At another point in her briefing, she repeated her assertion that she does not intentionally mislead the public, but acknowledged that she is not always provided the most accurate or complete information about her boss.”
President Trump is upset with White House press secretary Sarah Sanders over her responses Wednesday regarding his alleged affair with porn star Stormy Daniels, CNN reports.
“On Wednesday, Sanders told reporters that the arbitration was won ‘in the President’s favor.’ The statement is an admission that the nondisclosure agreement exists, and that it directly involves the President. It is the first time the White House has admitted the President was involved in any way with Daniels.”
Said a source: “POTUS is very unhappy. Sarah gave the Stormy Daniels storyline steroids yesterday.”
“I think she does the best of her ability to tell the truth but also to protect the President, and so I think that there’s a fine line to draw between those two things.”

New White House communications director Anthony Scarmucci had some advice for new press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Jezebel reports.
Said Scaramucci: “For Sarah Huckabee, I want to do everything I can to make her better at that podium. I think she’s phenomenal there now. But like every athlete that is training for the Olympics, every day we have to make ourselves incrementally better. The only thing I ask Sarah—Sarah, if you’re watching, I loved the hair and makeup person we had on Friday, so I’d like to continue to use the hair and makeup person.”
“When you’re attacking FBI agents because you’re under criminal investigation, you’re losing.”
