Sarah is the mainstream media’s worst nightmare.
Day after day, she stands in the White House briefing room, expertly tackling the media complex attack dogs who try to set her and Trump up for carefully crafted fake news stories to spin anything POTUS does into something negative, no matter how successful his administration is.
So she’s gotten herself caught in their crosshairs more than once, but it is a great testament to her character that when “comedienne” Michelle Wolf blasted her at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, many of the clearly left-leaning reporters who work with her each and every day rushed to her defense.
Sanders is a no-nonsense, steel-willed class act who has positively mastered her role as White House Press Secretary and is well-loved by the American public for her grace, poise, and sharp tongue.
So perhaps CBS was just expressing some wishful thinking when they ran a straight-up fake story about Sanders’ plans to leave the White House along with principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah.
Sanders wasted no time poking fun at the outlet for trusting their mystery “White House source” with something so absurd:
Does @CBSNews know something I don’t about my plans and my future? I was at my daughter’s year-end Kindergarten event and they ran a story about my “plans to leave the WH” without even talking to me. I love my job and am honored to work for @POTUS

“Does @CBSNews know something I don’t about my plans and my future?” she teased in a tweet on Wednesday after hearing the news. “I was at my daughter’s year-end Kindergarten event and they ran a story about my ‘plans to leave the WH’ without even talking to me. I love my job and am honored to work for @POTUS.”
Other than the people on the left who simply point at Sarah and scream “LIES!” because they hate the President, most agree she’s done a fantastic job as Press Secretary.
The Daily Wire notes some of the highlights of her tenure at the White House:
Sanders has had some memorable moments, including saying of the media spreading fake stories, “There’s a very big difference between making honest mistakes and purposely misleading the American people,” targeting Democratic Congressman Ted Lieu for tweeting a false story, asserting, “You should spend less time tweeting, more time doing your job,” nailing CNN’s Jim Acosta for saying President Trump watched a lot of CNN, responding, “I don’t think that’s true, or your numbers would be higher,” and nailing Acosta again after he tweeted, “Third press briefing in a row that @PressSec did not take a question from CNN. #courage,” by firing back, “Courage isn’t taking ‘a question from CNN,’ Jim. Courage is combat veterans Sgt. Peck and Staff Sgt. Dwyer – the two heroes at the briefing. #itsnotaboutyou.”
My personal favorite Sarah Sanders moment is still the time she made reporters tell the room one thing they were grateful for before asking her a question on the final presser before the Thanksgiving break. The press slammed her for it, but if you listen to the audio of that day, it really was a beautiful gesture that highlighted the importance of the holiday and the role it plays in American unity.
Of course, perhaps her greatest slam dunk, however, was when she was asked to respond to Obama, Hillary, and John Kerry’s critique of the US pulling out of the Iran deal:
I think based on each of those individuals’ lack of success in this entire process on foreign affairs, they would probably be the last three people that we would look to for advice and counsel, and whether or not we had made the right decisions.
This is why we all love us some Sarah Sanders! So glad to hear she’ll be sticking around.
