White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders asked reporters on Monday to say what they were thankful for prior to their regular press briefing. The request was made mainly because it would have been the last briefing before the Thanksgiving holiday.

At the beginning of the press briefing, Sanders said she was thankful for her family, her faith and members of the military.

“Obviously, you probably know, and it’s not a secret, that I’m clearly very thankful for all of you here in the room, and I think that goes without saying,” the press secretary said.

She was also thankful for the police and first responders as well as for the opportunity to serve President Donald Trump. Sanders then urged reporters to say what they were thankful for before the press briefing would commence.

While a number of reporters launched into their questions straight away, there were a few journalists who gave in. They listed several things for which they were grateful for, including their families and members of the military.

There were a few notable reporters who took advantage of the situation such as April Ryan, the bureau chief for the American Urban Radio Networks. She told Sanders she was thankful “to be able to talk to you and question you every single day.”Huckabee Sanders stated she felt the gratefulness in Ryan’s statement.

Another subtle jab was from ABC News’, Cecilia Vega who said she was thankful for the First Amendment. The comment was met with “oohs” throughout the room of reporters to which Sanders responded: “I think we all are”.
