Sanders asks reporters to say what they're thankful for before asking questions

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders asked reporters to say what they were thankful for before asking questions during Monday's press briefing.

"This will be our last press briefing before the Thanksgiving holiday in this room so I want to share a few things that I'm thankful for," Sanders said at the beginning of the briefing.

"And I think it would be nice for you guys to do so as well before asking your questions."

Sanders then listed what she is thankful for, including her family, her faith and members of the military.

"Obviously, you probably know, and it's not secret, that I'm clearly very thankful for all of you here in the room, and I think that goes without saying," she said.

She also said she is thankful for the police and first responders who "keep us safe here at home."

"And I'm certainly thankful for the incredible privilege of serving this president and the American people," she said.

Sanders then explained that reporters would need to say what they were thankful for before asking questions.

"If you want to ask a question, I think it's only fair since I've shared what I'm thankful for, that you start off with what you're thankful for," she said.

Multiple reporters said what they were thankful for before asking their questions during the press briefing, listing things including their families and members of the military.

ABC News reporter Cecilia Vega said before asking her question that she is thankful for the "First Amendment."
 
"I think we all are," Sanders said in response.
