Talking Points Memo reports:
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Monday told reporters that before they could ask her a question, they would have to list things for which they are thankful.
“This will be our last press briefing before the Thanksgiving holiday in this room,” Sanders said at the start of the daily briefing. “So I want to share a few things that I’m thankful for and I think it would be nice for you guys to do so as well before asking your questions.”
Sanders said it is “no secret” that she is “clearly very thankful” for the White House press corps, as well as her family, faith, first responders, members of the U.S. military and “the incredible privilege of serving this president and the American people.”

Why would reporters comply with this stupid Sarah Sanders request that they say what they’re thankful for?

So, Sarah Huckabee Sanders is making every reporter say what they’re thankful for before asking questions. Mind you, she speaks on behalf of an unhinged, corrupt, dangerous, sexual Predator, to which she said she’s thankful for. The most disgusting part of the Twilight Zone.
