The Trump administration turnover rate is beginning to look more like a McDonald’s staff than a White House team. CBS News reports that two very visible members are also planning their exits in the coming days.
Sources leaked the information on Wednesday:
‘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.’

In less than two years, Trump will have lost two press secretaries and two communications directors. First was Sean Spicer, who not only embarrassed himself immensely with his inauguration crowd rant at his first press conference, but has since found that its nearly impossible to get a job anywhere else with a record of being a Trump liar and sycophant on his resume. Many others face the same fate.

‘Numerous staffers have left the White House over the last several months, some voluntarily and others having been forced out. Those departures include Hicks; Jared Kushner’s top communications aide, Josh Raffel; homeland security adviser Tom Bossert; National Security Council spokesman Michael Anton; Trump personal aide John McEntee; director of White House message strategy Cliff Simms; communications aide Steven Cheung; congressional communications director Kaelan Dorr; assistant press secretary Natalie Strom; and deputy director of media affairs Tyler Ross.’

Sanders has long been the subject of scrutiny after making numerous conflicting statements at press conferences. She continues to assert that she’s still more credible than the reporters who take her to task for the lies and misstatements, although the majority of the country disagrees.
