Sarah Huckabee Sanders was back in the saddle yesterday for another fun press briefing at the White House. She comes back a day or so after rumors have been circulating that she plans to leave her job by the end of this year. The rumors started from a CNN report.
Before we get to the outburst that ensued during yesterday's meeting, Sarah did address these rumors through a tweet stating:
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— Sarah Sanders (@PressSec) June 14, 2018
A reporter did bring up the question to Sarah again during yesterday's presser and she personally stated that she has no plans to leave the White House. That wasn't the only interesting thing brought up yesterday at the briefing. CNN journalist Jim Acosta (who is known for butting heads with Sarah), brought up the topic of immigration and specifically Attorney General Jeff Sessions' comments on how he cited the Bible when defending some of our immigration policies. Huckabee claimed she was not aware of Sessions' specific comment and what he was referencing but that it's very "biblical to enforce the law". It was from there that the usual ensued of Acosta interupting Sarah, she got annoyed and made a sly comment saying, "I know it's hard for you to understand even short sentences..."
.@PressSec on immigration: "The separation of illegal alien families is the product of the same legal loopholes that Democrats refuse to close. And these laws are the same that have been on the books for over a decade and [@POTUS] is simply enforcing them." pic.twitter.com/IubzvfuZ0u— Fox News (@FoxNews) June 15, 2018
That was just the preshow for the fireworks that were to come though. Another CNN analyst jumped it on immigration and got very fired up. He had a bizarre, inappropriate outburst and actually used Sarah's children as an example to attack her on immigration policies. He took it way too far...I'm embarassed for him...

Sarah had her work cut out for her yesterday for sure. Every once in a while there are those press briefings that just take the cake. At one point Huckabee was even asked about Rudy Giuliani's love life. Yes, you heard me right. You can't make this stuff up! She answered the love life question to the likes of many chuckles, saying: "Not today, tomorrow, or ever will I comment on Rudy Giuliani's love life".
