Sarah Huckabee Sanders For Office? Press Secretary Says "Never Say Never"

Sarah Huckabee Sanders For Office? Press Secretary Says

'It's a disservice to the American people that there [isn't] more credible sourcing'.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders revealed she says "a little prayer of God help me" each day before walking into the briefing room during an interview on "Fox News Sunday".

During a lukewarm panel discussion between Sanders and members of the White House Correspondents Association at George Washington University Monday night, the press secretary and prominent members of the media spoke candidly about their relationship, which Sanders said will always have "tension because we have very different jobs to do".

The problem, says Sanders, can manifest itself in tones and attitudes: "It's not even the nature of the question, it's the way a question is asked", said the press secretary. She abhorred the media's use of anonymous sources, saying that she and her staff can not "compete" against such folks, who may not know all they claim to know.

"It's a big disservice to the American people that there (isn't) more credible sourcing", she said. The study found that that 93 percent of coverage of the president by CNN was negative, though Sanders's statement applied that number to all media coverage, not just CNN. "But I think that goes both ways".

The "real facts" also yield a list of Trump administration accomplishments: attack tweets, turnover among senior advisers, failure after failure in Congress, stupid fights with a Gold Star family and bogus claim after bogus claim.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders holds the daily briefing at the White House on October 20.

President Donald Trump has often criticized reporters for using anonymous sources.

Huckabee Sanders recently told reporters that it would be "highly inappropriate" to question Gen. John Kelly, leading to a ton of criticism for her suggesting he's above reproach. La David Johnson, who was killed in an ambush on U.S. Special Forces operating in Niger.

"I don't think so", said Huckabee Sanders.

"And so never say never, but I don't think that's part of the master plan for me. Will there be an apology?"
