Sarah Sanders Actually Quit Her Job 95 Days Ago
Sarah Sanders hasn't given a press briefing in 95 days, so her resignation yesterday just seems like an afterthought. And, let's face it, her credibility had been approaching zero for months before that. Admitting under oath that she had lied to the press corps about James Comey didn't help.
Sanders' legacy will be that she ended the daily press briefing and reduced transparency within the executive branch of our government. And, her infrequent briefings often had a combative tone as she vigorously defended the President's daily misstatements of fact. Long-time political analyst Larry Sabato, from the University of Virginia may have captured it best:
Larry Sabato, CBS19 News: "The press secretary reflects the president and his values or lack of them," said Sabato. "And so in that sense, I think Sarah Sanders was a perfect representative for Donald Trump. She has about the same respect for the truth that he does."
Sanders is considering a campaign for Governor in her native Arkansas. God help them.
