Is this yet another case of fake news being pushed by the so-called mainstream media? On Wednesday, CBS News — citing unnamed “sources” — reported that White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is planning to leave the administration at the end of the year. Sanders, however, seemed surprised to hear the news and wondered if CBS knows something she doesn’t.
According to CBS:
Press secretary Sarah Sanders and principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah are both heading for the exits, according to sources inside the White House and close to the administration. Sanders, who has become a confidante of President Trump since the, has told friends that she plans to leave the administration at the end of the year.
Responding to the report, one person suggested that CNN propagandist Jim Acosta would be the happiest person in America:
Is there a happier person in America right now than Jim Acosta? https://t.co/nbi2ubxtXL

If the report is true, Sanders would still have several months left to deal with Acosta. But it seems far too early for haters of the press secretary to celebrate.
Sanders tweeted: “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”

CBS posted Sanders’ tweet, adding:
Shah is also considering his exit, but he has not yet settled on an exact date. Neither Sanders nor Shah responded to repeated requests for comment before this story was published. When reached Wednesday evening, both declined to comment on the record, and Sanders tweeted that she is “honored to work for @POTUS.”
One person suggested:
Sounds to me like she told someone she was gonna leave as a bait test. Now she knows who not to trust! Well done, @PressSec.
