  • NEW HANDS: Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director, announces that Sarah Huckabee Sanders would succeed Sean Spicer as press secretary.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, daughter of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, is the new White House press secretary.

It was announced this afternoon following news of Sean Spicer's resignation, reportedly over his unhappiness over Donald Trump's choice of Anthony Scaramucci as communications director.

It's a hot seat. Sanders seems to have been better liked by the press corps than Spicer, though she's had plenty of sharp interchanges as deputy, recently in briefings in which recordings haven't been allowed. She was unveiled on camera today. The problem is more the boss than the staff in most cases in the White House.

Sanders had some supporting roles as a character in "Saturday Night Live's" depiction of the Trump White House. It remains to be seen if there's a player ready to do for her what Melissa McCarthy did in her portrayal of Spicer.
