White House Press Corps' Kids Invited To Shadow Their Parents At Work

One has to wonder what kind of paces Sean Spicer is going to put the boys and girls through who will be accompanying their parents to work next week. The White House has invited the press corps to bring their 5-13-year-old children to shadow their parents for Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day on April 27th.

The Trump administration and the media have had a contentious relationship, a result of mutual disdain. One can only hope that the children will be experiencing just how cool and uncommon their parent’s job is and not any of the tension that can often come between the White House and the press these days.

This year’s theme is notably #COUNTONME, which is amusing when one starts guessing at what the White House counts on the press for in a Trump administration.

There will be a mock press briefing though, which would be fun to see how White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer fields questions from the tikes and whether they can get any good answers for their parents.
