President Trump announced the shocking news Thursday afternoon that the Trump administration’s devoted Press Secretary Sarah Sanders will be resigning at the end of the month.
In a couple of short, yet sweet, tweets Trump called Sanders a “very special person” and that she’ll be heading home to Arkansas where she’d make a ‘great governor!’
….She is a very special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job! I hope she decides to run for Governor of Arkansas – she would be fantastic. Sarah, thank you for a job well done!

Sanders was clearly holding back a lot of emotion when she confirmed the announcement.
Sanders called the job the “honor of a lifetime.” She praised the president for his accomplishments and said she even loved the “hard minutes” of being press secretary.
The only thing that could top the experience is “being a mom,” Sander said.
Politics runs in the bloodlines, as Sanders’ famous dad, former Arkansas Gov Mike Huckabee has been a staunch defender of his daughter who’s taken a lot of heat standing up to an often hostile press.
Huckabee was quick to weigh in on the breaking news via Twitter:

Sanders has become a regular target for attacks and there was no shortage of vile and immediate reaction from the left:
Before Sarah Sanders leaves…
Let me tell her one thing…
Go fuck yourself, you lying horrible human being.
Ok I feel better.

Thankfully, calmer and clearer minds also weighed in on the surprising news:
Sarah Sanders is one of the most eloquent Press Secretaries I have ever known.
Thanks to the media bias and Extreme Obsessive Trump hate, they made her job very hard for her.
Wishing her all the best in her next endeavor. pic.twitter.com/aqdesAXZ8d

Sarah Sanders has is the best press secretary I have seen in a decade. She has endured media scrutiny, insults and political attacks but she always held herself with dignity and grace.
Now she gets to throw her heart into where is beats. Her family.
Bravo job, warrior.

Trump soon took to the podium to reaffirm his stance that the two are parting on the best of terms. He called her a great, tough, and magnificent person and reiterated that she’d make a great governor. “She’s done an incredible job” he said.

So, who will be next? That’s a great question that’s already being asked.
Sarah Sanders served honorably as Press Secretary and she will be dearly missed.
She will be a hard act to follow… pic.twitter.com/I3TFvTwTWZ

A “hard act to follow” indeed.
