Press Secretary Sarah Sanders Quits, Will We Notice?


Longtime Trump confidante and press secretary Sarah Sanders announced recently that she is leaving the position at the end of June and heading home to Arkansas. Ordinarily, the first question on everyone's mind would be, who is going to replace her?

Not very many people seem concerned about who will take over the job because the job really hasn't existed for some time. Sanders has not held a briefing in months. Reporters have said the podium in the briefing room literally has a thick coating of dust on it.
