rawstory-logos(aug15)How much longer will Sarah Huckabee Sanders run Donald Trump’s communications team?

Washington insiders are betting it won’t be long, according to Politico’s Annie Karni.

On MSNBC’s Hardball, Karni revealed that many members of Trump’s communications team are worried “the axe may be coming for them” following the leak of a repulsive joke about “dying” John McCain’s opinion on torture not mattering. Already, the White House has scrapped its regular staff meetings over fears that the contents will be leaked.

Now, “word on the street” is that Huckabee Sanders will be jettisoned right around her one-year anniversary in the job, which is July.

“The betting game in Washington is, ‘How long will Sarah Sanders last? Will she push on past her one year mark in the job, which is in July,'” Karni said.
