CBS News reported on Wednesday night that White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah were both quitting their jobs this year.
The report cites “sources inside the White House and close to the administration.” It also claims that Sanders told friends she is leaving by the end of the year. The left-leaning out reported that Shah has not yet decided on when he plans to exit the White House.
Just minutes after the report ignited a firestorm on social media, Sanders scorched the fake news with one brutal tweet.
“I love my job and am honored to work for POTUS,” Sanders wrote.
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

The CBS report spread like wildfire across Twitter, giving left-wingers the chance to smear and insult President Donald Trump and his administration.
The report, of course, was fake news. But it’s another scathing reminder of how the media often makes egregious claims, refuses to apologize, and then moves on completely unashamed of their fake news.
Coming off the historic U.S-North Korea summit between Trump and dictator Kim Jong Un, the liberal media is apparently desperate to change the subject. Rather than give the president any credit for the summit, the media is conjuring up tabloid gossip to claim the Trump administration is falling apart.
Sadly, this is just the latest embarrassing stunt from the media, who are desperate to attack Trump and Sanders.
On Tuesday, CNN’s Jim Acosta was caught on a hot-mic going on a expletive tirade over Trump while in Singapore for the U.S.-North Korea summit.
CNN’s Chris Cuomo stopped just shy of calling Sanders a liar several times during a five-minute interview earlier this week.
Prior to that, Sanders was forced to call out CNN producer Greg Hughes for a false tweet about Trump’s trip to the G-7 Summit in Canada.
And CBS News, without even asking her first, claimed Sanders is preparing to quit her job. This is the nasty kind of treatment that Sanders, Trump, and many other White House officials are subjected to each day.
