    Is it that hard to say "no comment?"

    What is wrong with Sara Sanders that, upon being asked a question for which she, the WH, Trump, etc. doesn't want to disclose details, she can't just say something to the effect of "no comment?"

    The reality of life in political Washington, and especially in the WH and OEB, mid-level staffers talk. Some of the talk about things because they're told to. Some do it to lay a foundation for post-governmental career purposes. Some talk for social purposes -- social networking, developing rapport, etc. Others still do it for philosophical reasons. Whatever the reason(s), the fact remains people are talking, and for the most part, federal D.C.s "grapevine" is fairly reliable.

    Of course, "grapevines" aren't unique to the federal government. Any sufficiently large enough organization has them. So, unless one lived under a rock or in a cave, so to speak, or is a flat-out misanthrope, one should know that and know how they work. They work pretty much the same way everywhere, though in D.C. the "grapevine" tends to be more about policy than about people, but the basic process is the same.

    Despite her being "to the political manor born," Sanders, as WH Press Sec., comports herself as though she's not a social person, yet she grew up not around, in, politics, so one'd think she's super savvy to the "grapevine." Time and time again, however, she's been made a liar.

    How does that happen? Is she not plugged-into the "grapevine?" She's the Press Sec., so she's definitely plugged into the official line. When she's not with Trump or her boss, does she wear earplugs and blinders?

    To wit...
    From what I can hear, the only reason Tillerson, McMaster and Kelly's tenure is as long as it was/is is that Trump can't find people who want to work for him. Trump's publicly said folks are "beating down the door" work in his WH, which, true to form for Trump, means the exact opposite.​

    In any case, what's astounding is that Sanders apparently has no problem with going out there every day saying "whatever" and knowing she's going to be made a liar at some point. She should just say "no comment" and be done.


    Notes:
    1. What did Trump think McMaster, a three-star general, was going to do? Suddenly change his mindset about Iran merely because Trump -- the only "Know-Nothing" to ever be POTUS...who knew it'd take 120 years to happen? --

    Ah. Trump demands active defence of his positions (usually by doubling down) right up to the moment a position officially changes. Sanders is just keeping the boss happy.

    Sanders is yet another incompetent member of an otherwise failed ‘administration.’

    It's a fucken circus. It would be laughable, if it weren't happening in the White House.

    Not true at all, Sanders is amazing at her job, she actually makes Spicer look like an honest and upfront guy.

    Once in a while you Loons should really try to listen to yourselves...you may realize why nobody sane and productive takes you fools serious.

    LefTards-
    “Folks whom practice religion and faith are lousy, hypocritical scum.”
    “Illegals, federal criminals, ass drilling pole puffers and men in dresses are awesome.”

    “The positive contributing wealthy are evil, greedy bastards.”
    “The poor are criminals because the wealthy keep them poor.”

    You phuckin wack-jobs are so fascinating.
