White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders asked reporters to say what they were thankful for before asking a question during Monday’s press briefing.
“This will be our last press briefing before the Thanksgiving holiday in this room so I want to share a few things that I’m thankful for,” Sanders said at the start of the briefing.
“And I think it would be nice for you guys to do so as well before asking your questions.”
“Obviously, you probably know, and it’s not secret, that I’m clearly very thankful for all of you here in the room, and I think that goes without saying,” Sanders told the room.
Sanders added that she is thankful for the police and first responders who “keep us safe here at home.”
“And I’m certainly thankful for the incredible privilege of serving this president and the American people,” she said.
“If you want to ask a question, I think it’s only fair since I’ve shared what I’m thankful for, that you start off with what you’re thankful for,” she said.
ABC News reporter Cecilia Vega started her question by saying that she is thankful for “the First Amendment.”
“I think we all are,” Huckabee Sanders said in response.
