Sen. Lindsey Graham praised Sanders' work and said that she would be missed.

Prior to joining Trump's presidential campaign, Grisham had worked on Mitt Romney's 2012 presidential campaign and before that had run her own small public relations firm.

Trump announced Thursday that Sanders was leaving as White House press secretary and encouraged her to run for Arkansas governor, a job her dad held for 10 ½ years.

Next Kimmel played a video of Sanders sparring with members of the anti-Trump press corps after which Kimmel insisted Sanders would be replaced by a "box of TGIF Fridays bacon cheddar-loaded potato skins".

The possibility of Sanders running is enticing to Democrats, who say it would draw national attention and money to a race that otherwise would be written off.

Carrey posted a cartoon drawing of Sanders, praying to what appears to be the crucifix, with a red, ostensibly makeshift red halo over her head. "And I want to thank you for an outstanding job", he added. Sanders will be leaving the Trump administration at the end of June.

Meanwhile, former Juve coach Allegri revealed on Thursday he intends to take a year off after leaving the Serie A champions. Juventus believe Sarri's taskmaster approach will prove the flawless follow-up after Massimiliano Allegri's departure.

Trump, calling Sanders forward at an unrelated event in the East Room, called her "strong, but with a great, great heart" and said he was encouraging her to run for governor as she returns home to Arkansas. When Trump was elected, Grisham joined the press office as a deputy to then-press secretary Sean Spicer. "I mean, I have heard from a large number of individuals that work at the Federal Bureau of Investigation that said that they're very happy with the president's decision".

She has also been accused of telling repeated lies to reporters, although she denies this. But there is a desire for a female press secretary. Megan Garber from The Atlantic said Sanders reminds us what happens when partisanship takes control. "And, in the meantime, I'm going to continue to be one of the most outspoken and loyal supporters of the President and his agenda", she said.

Carrey isn't the only person who isn't sad to see Sanders go. It was only when she was under oath and facing potential jail time did Sanders admit she made the whole story up.

In August, CNN's Jim Acosta challenged Sanders publicly on Trump's disparagement of the press.

The daughter of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Sanders moved her young family to Washington to be part of the administration.

Some journalists defended her when she was mocked by comic Michelle Wolf at last year's White House Correspondents' Association dinner.
