Sanders holds 1st press briefing since Feb. 28, but for kids
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders held her first briefing in more than a month Thursday, but the questions didn’t come from working journalists.
Sanders made herself available for what the White House said was a “kids-only press briefing” held for children participating in “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.”
Journalists who cover President Donald Trump and the White House on a daily basis have been waiting for a similar opportunity since Feb. 28, the last time Sanders held a briefing.
The White House announced that the briefing would be off the record and not for broadcast, meaning news organizations would be barred from reporting on the Q-and-A or airing video of the session.
