Liberals are recoiling at the thought of a Christian woman reading a devotional and saying a prayer before each press briefing. But Christians love it!
Let’s face it, the woman is a more than effective spokesperson for the president and the White House. It would make sense that she gets her strength from her faith.
The Washington Examiner has the story:
Everyday there’s a briefing, Sarah Huckabee Sanders follows the same routine. First she reads a devotion, then she says a prayer, and finally she meets the press.
President Trump's new press secretary is an evangelical who reads a Christian devotional before news briefings https://t.co/3WTTwdMMG1

Naturally the New York Times is shocked by this odd ritual. “President Trump’s new press secretary is an evangelical who reads a Christian devotional before news briefings,” the paper reports with a curiosity normally reserved for anthropologists.
But there’s nothing new about asking Almighty God for grace under pressure, especially not in the White House. The last two presidents started their day with a morning devotion, as John Dickerson of CBS pointed out. Obama liked to read widely while Bush stuck to Oswald Chamber’s My Utmost for His Highest.
Why does the left wince at displays of Christianity, but they were all over acceptance of Islam when Obama occupied the White House? In a nation of freedom of religion, you would think they could curb their disdain, just a little bit.
