Sarah Huckabee Sanders Made Reporters Tell Her What They're Thankful For

"I'm clearly thankful for all of you", White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters at Monday's White House press briefing. "If you want to ask a question I think it's only fair since I've shared what I'm thankful for...you start off with what you're thankful for".

"Zeke, you did break the rule of not offering anything you were thankful for", Sanders joked, implying that he should course correct.

Sanders took the first question from White House reporter April Ryan, who shared that she is thankful for being able to question Sanders "every single day". "And the father of one of the Americans releasing to have a problem with it - frankly, didn't seem like the father wanted the president to intervene, which I would have been a sad thing if he hadn't". Occasionally, officials have utitlized the White House press briefings to trot out manipulated stories or all-out falsehoods that support their agenda.

Sanders explained that she was thankful for all of the people in the room, her family and faith, adding that she was "particularly thankful for the courageous men and women of the military" as well as "police and first responders".

When Ryan proceeded to ask her a question about Trump's tweets about Marshawn Lynch and other NFL players protesting the national anthem, Sanders refused to answer and called on another reporter.

Today's White House press briefing began with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson taking questions on President Donald Trump's decision to designate North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism.

"I think we all are", Sanders replied.

Twitter's reaction was mixed on the press secretary's Thanksgiving exercise.

"I think we all are", Sanders added when a reporter mentioned the First Amendment.
