The left really can't do thankfulness. Even asking them to be thankful is humiliating.
Here's a whole CNN rant on the subject. I'll spare you the even more hysterical New Yorker piece on the subject.
At Monday's daily press briefing, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders encouraged reporters to first state things they were thankful for before asking their questions. Most of them obliged. They shouldn't have.
Reporters ask questions at press briefings. Spokespeople answer them.
Don't you understand. We're the media.
We ask questions. You answer them.
We have the power. You don't.
To be clear, Sanders did not insist reporters cooperate with her new "tell-me-what-you're-thankful-for-first" rule. But she certainly set the expectation.
"This is how it's going to work today," she said. "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."
The media is thankful for finding another thing to be outraged about.
