President Trump sent social media into a frenzy this afternoon when he announced that the widely despised White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders would be stepping down at the end of the month.
After 3 1/2 years, our wonderful Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be leaving the White House at the end of the month and going home to the Great State of Arkansas….
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 13, 2019
Willing to say anything and tell any lie in order to excuse and whitewash the president’s appalling actions, statements, and policies, Sanders took bootlicking to a new low during her tenure as Press Secretary — but it appears she’s finally reached her breaking point.
Social media immediately began celebrating and erupted in an avalanche of mockery and derision against the president’s chief enabler, tearing into the woman with well-deserved vitriol for her role in justifying the president’s horrific child separation policies and all the mind-blowing lies she tells on a daily basis.
Here’s a selection of the best tweets:
Sean Spicer and Sarah Sanders dishonorably frittered away the credibility of the White House podium, a legacy built up over decades and entrusted to their care, in the service of a man whom they both know is unfit to sit in the building.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders is leaving the White House.
We won’t miss her, but we must never forget her lies and her cruelty. We cannot let her avoid accountability for serving as the chief mouthpiece and enabler of this admin’s bigoted and violent policies.https://t.co/VJ48fwkQnk

I'm not going to believe that Sarah Huckabee Sanders is leaving as White House press secretary until she denies it herself.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders is returning to her former private sector job, which is slugging baby cows unconscious at a veal farm. When properly iced/rested, the former Trump press secretary can stun 120-130 calves per hour, ahead of what has been called a "wildly inhumane" slaughter.

Trump will probably replace Sarah Huckabee Sanders with a sign that says, "I know you are but what am I?"
