Sarah Sanders criticizes report that she is leaving White House
Jun 16 2018
The June 14 White House press briefing was filled with drama as CNN'sJim Acosta and Playboy'sBrian Karem made a decision to pick fights with Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders over the contentious immigration policy in which children are separated from their parents during immigration enforcement arrests.
According to a CBSreport, which cited anonymous sources inside the White House, Sanderstold her friends she planned to leave her post at the end of the year.
CBS also reported Principal Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah is also planning to leave, but there is no date set for his departure.
Naturally, one of the primary grand-standers over this issue at Wednesday's White House press briefing was anti-Trump activist Jim Acosta of the far-left CNN.
The next reporter Sanders called on again tried to impress upon her that the Trump administration's policy of separating families is not a law, and could be revisited at any time.
But Sanders brushed off his question, accusing him of trying to "get more TV time". "What they did to Sarah at the White House Correspondents Dinner - the only difference I would've done, I would've walked out".
CBS News said it reached out for a comment from Sanders and Shah, but they had not yet immediately responded.
"Don't you have any empathy for what they go through?" he asked.
"You just said it's in the Bible to follow the law", Acosta remarked.
President Donald Trump has defended the policy of separating families at the border who are asking for asylum by blaming the Democrats for not joining Republicans in changing immigration law to prevent such tragedies.
Earlier on June 12, Sanders had tweeted to congratulate Trump for concluding a successful, unprecedented summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore.
Even with a smaller than usual workforce, the Trump Administration's White House set a record in turnover rates, which now stands at 51 percent and President Donald Trump isn't even half-way through his first term in office. "And it is going to be harder to find good people to replace them".
'This is a White House that doesn't seem to value that or understand the consequences of it.
Acosta preened, hectored, heckled, interrupted, and, in the end, got completely owned by press secretary Sarah Sanders, who, after Acosta attempted to take her out of context, accurately pointed out that the not-very-bright Acosta has trouble understanding short sentences. One reporter noted, "There is no law that requires that families be separated at the border".
