Sarah's Special Guests at News Briefing Probably Had Reporters on Good Behavior

Share

Oh, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways.

First, there’s the fact that you own Jim Acosta at every press briefing in the same way that Michael Jordan owned Patrick Ewing in every Eastern Conference Finals in the early 1990s.

Then there’s the fact that you do the sarcastic comeback better than pretty much any press secretary we can remember. It’s hard to recall a particular favorite, but I think the response to Nancy Pelosi’s ostentatious frowning at the State of the Union was pretty spectacular.

However, all of that pales in comparison to this slice of awesomeness: She brought her kids in the press briefing room for Bring Your Child to Work Day.

And that’s not all: she held a press briefing where the participants were children.

And talk about an amazing way to keep the press on their best behavior, too.

There were plenty of questions to go around, including talk about Queen Elizabeth II and the Duchess of Cambridge’s new baby:

Of course, there’s always Brutuses and Cassiuses around every office trying to take your job, no matter how young they may be:

A lot of people seemed to know the answers to the questions, too.

I guess she didn’t ask, “Why can’t Hillary Clinton figure out why she lost?” That’s a question science can’t even get a hold on.

Sanders, the first working mother to occupy the position of White House press secretary, has been clear about the fact that she feels family comes first — something I’m sure feminists must love.

During a July 2017 interview, Sanders noted that her first daughter, Scarlett, was just entering kindergarten.

Are you a fan of Sarah Sanders?
“Scarlett and every little girl in America should grow up in a country that — if we deliver on the president’s agenda better jobs, better healthcare, and a better tax system — incentivizes women to work and raise children,” Sanders said.

“As a working mom, it’s not lost on me what a great honor and privilege it is to stand here at the podium.”

And, let’s face it — kids are an easier audience than Jim Acosta. More inquisitive, too.

God bless you, Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
