White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders began Thursday’s briefing by reading a story about Christmas to the White House press corps.

For Thursday’s story, Sanders chose a church in West Virginia where a family donated at Christmastime over 100 years ago, and that original donation continues to fund gifts for children.

“There will be so many acts of generosity and kindness that go unnoticed this Christmas season,” Sanders opined at the conclusion of her yuletide tale. “These stories are important because they remind us what the season is all about and that’s the greatest gift of all, that a savior was born.”

“And hopefully we can all focus and take time out of our busy schedules to enjoy the Christmas season,” she added. “Or however you may celebrate.”

Never Trumpers fear for their safety if they dare attend CPAC: report

Published

on

On Saturday, Politico profiled a handful of longtime conservatives who have criticized President Donald Trump — and the general consensus was that they feared hostility at this year's annual Conservative Political Action Conference.

One such figure was former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL), a Tea Party darling who has since attacked Trump for undermining the rule of law, and briefly mounted a presidential primary challenge.
