White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was taking questions on Thursday when two of her children crashed her press conference. However, as always, her reaction was nothing but pure class.
Thursday was national “Take Your Child to Work Day” and countless Americans from sea to shining sea participated by bringing their kids with them to experience a typical day at their workplaces. Even high-profile members of the Trump administration took part.
According to The Daily Caller, President Donald Trump spent time with the kids of the White House staff and press corps on Thursday as part of national “Take Your Child to Work Day.” The president and the children first spent time in the Rose Garden where he signed “Make America Great Again” hats for kids and autographed their White House press cards, before inviting them to check out the Oval Office.
“They are very well-behaved,” Trump said of the kids before asking them if they were ready to see the Oval Office. “Should we leave your parents out here? Do you want your parents in the Oval Office or out?”
“OUT!” the kids shouted.
“Let’s go to the Oval Office,” Trump exclaimed.
“Honestly, the children ask me better questions, if you want to know the truth,” Trump joked. “Your parents are being very nice right now, I can’t believe it! Because they don’t want to embarrass themselves in front of you. You understand that? They’re being so nice I can’t believe it.”
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders celebrated national “Take Your Child to Work Day” on Thursday, as well, by bringing her two kids with her to the White House briefing room.

Sarah Sanders is the first mother to ever hold the position of White House press secretary. A new report revealed that she stops what she’s doing and says a prayer before every press briefing.
According to Politico, “Before every briefing, Sanders prays and reads from a book of devotions in her office overlooking the White House lawn. Artwork by her children hangs on a board behind her desk, and across the room is a shelf with a few books, including The Christian Life and Character and Gone With the Wind. She’s the first mother to serve in the job, and nearly everyone who deals with her marvels at her ability to balance work and life.”
A photo of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, taken on “Take Your Child to Work Day” 2017, showed children looking as though they were having considerably less fun than they did with Sanders and the president, but can you blame them?
It seemed fitting that “Take Your Child to Work Day” fell on the same date as First Lady Melania Trump’s 48th birthday. Melania has a deep passion for children, so she was undoubtedly thrilled to see all of the smiling little faces at the White House on Thursday. The Trump administration did a fantastic job hosting children at the People’s House this week! The young boys and girls were truly given the opportunity of a lifetime to visit with the president and his legendary spokeswoman.
