White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is leaving the White House, according to President Donald Trump, and many across the Twitterverse could not be more happy or more relieved.


Sanders will forever be remembered as a liar, which was even documented in the Mueller report. Sanders was forced to admit under penalty f perjury that she lied when she falsely told reporters from the White House press briefing room podium that many FBI agents had told her they were grateful Trump fired Jim Comey.

“I’ve heard from countless members of the FBI that are grateful and thankful for the president’s decision,” Huckabee Sanders told reporters. “Between emails, text messages, absolutely,” she doubled down when pressed.

That was a lie, and one of many Huckabee Sanders has told in her role.

Former George W. Bush White House Communications Director, now an MSNBC anchor and the network's chief political analyst, Nicolle Wallace, noting Huckabee Sanders was appearing with the President, "as she says goodbye to a White House press briefing room she rarely visited."

Perhaps one of the most relieved is a former federal government spokesperson. Matthew Miller, who served as communications director at the Dept. of Justice during the Obama administration and as Attorney General Eric Holder's spokesperson did not hold back.
