Spicer is essentially out, replaced by Sanders

President Trump is set to shake up his communications team, moving press secretary Sean Spicer from the podium at daily briefing, according to sources close to the White House.

Mr. Spicer is expected to remain in a top job in the press office but will be replaced by deputy press secretary Sarah Sanders in providing daily White House briefings, said the source.

The shakeup was predictable following two weeks of communications turmoil at the White House after the abrupt firing of FBI Director James B. Comey.

Mr. Spicer also has had a combative relationship with the press, which has been lampooned repeatedly on “Saturday Night Live,” providing a further distraction for the president’s agenda.

President Trump’s first trip abroad that begins Friday will ease the transition from Mr. Spicer to Mrs. Sanders as the face of the White House, said the source.

Both Mr. Spicer and Mrs. Sanders are accompanying the president on the eight-day trip to the Middle East and Europe.

I know she is the daughter of Mike Huckabee, former governor of Arkansas, and that Walmart is based in Bentonville, AK, but does that mean she has to buy all her clothes there? Seriously, other than his immediate family, everyone around him looks like they shop there. It is embarrassing. Not that anything about his administration isn't.

If true, it's the shortest tenure for an administration's first press secretary on record, except for Jerald terHorst, who resigned in protest of Ford's pardon of Nixon, and James Brady, Reagan's first press secretary, who had other reasons he couldn't continue.

Alas, Spicey, we barely knew ye. But no matter the new shade, it's still lipstick on a pig.

Sanders seems like she can easily lie without qualms or remorse. A chip off the old block. She'll do well.

The press will wear her down. These righties are all hyper-sensitive.

Exactly. She can lie with a (well, semi-) smile on her face. And she doesn't yell at the reporters.

They'll love her.

So his job is hiding in the bushes ?

I'll miss Melissa's send-ups of him on SNL.

Melissa will make the transition to Sanders effortlessly.

Since drumpf didn't like a woman portraying a man, perhaps snl can have a man portray Sanders.

A SNL cast member has already played Huckabee. I doubt if they replace her.

Do you really think Sanders will take the job?
