White House Press Secretary hasn’t held a proper press briefing with reporters since February, but she’s scheduled to take live questions in the White House briefing room on Thursday.
There is, however, a catch: All of the questioners will be asked by reporters’ children — not the reporters themselves.
According to AFP White House correspondent Sebastian Smith, the press briefing with children is part of the White House’s “bring your kids to work” event, although it also has a side benefit for Sanders, in that none of the children have likely read the 400-plus pages of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Latest in the weird White House /media relationship: Briefing room filling up for a briefing by @PressSec Sarah Sanders who almost never gives briefings. Only problem? It’s a fake briefing held off the record for children on ‘bring your kids to work day’. pic.twitter.com/4DcfkC0jGG
