Key Takeaways From Sarah Sanders’ Time as Press Secretary

Sarah Sanders's time in the White House has come to an end. Bye. 👋

How Sarah Sanders Spent Her Years as Press Secretary

Sarah Sanders is out as White House press secretary. Her two years on the job were spent… Having very few conversations with President Trump. Adding necessary clarity to his statements. In the Mueller report, Sanders admitted to making disingenuous statements to reporters when discussing Trump's justification for firing former FBI Director James Comey in 2017. At the time, Sanders told reporters that Comey was fired because he’d lost the confidence of the president, the Department of Justice, members of both parties in Congress and "most importantly, the rank and file of the FBI had lost confidence in Comey." 'Slip of the tongue' A reporter challenged Sanders during that televised briefing. "Look," Sanders rebuked the reporter, "we’ve heard from countless members of the FBI that say very different things." But Sanders told investigators that the comments were a "slip of the tongue" and said a similar claim during an interview was made "in the heat of the moment" and was not founded on anything.

Maintaining the administration's positive and productive relationship with the press. Maybe her record doesn’t bother journalists who work for conservative outlets. They at least have a recognizable interest in maintaining a relationship with Sanders that isn’t just civil but warm. (Rumor has it that she’s considering a run for governor of Arkansas.) But journalists who work for serious news outlets should understand better than anyone that politics isn’t a game. The press has a responsibility to the public, which it cannot fulfill if it does not grasp the real stakes of its relationship to the White House.

Setting aside plenty of time for her press briefings. She has avoided the White House podium, at Trump’s direction, for over 90 days after her soon-to-be former boss said the media was too harsh on her and asked unfair questions. She replaced her briefings, which usually lasted around 20 minutes, with impromptu “gaggles” in the White House’s north driveway following cable news hits, typically on Fox News. Those almost always lasted under or around 10 minutes.

    She ran out of lies and detergent. Could not launder her boss's lies anymore. Isn't she a religious person? How could she have lied so much to cover up her boss's lies?
