Sean Spicer has been accused of talking to reporters like they're children during his daily press briefings. On Thursday, they actually were children. USA Today reports the chairs usually filled by reporters were instead being used by the children of reporters and White House staff for Take Your Child to Work Day. The kids were given the chance to ask questions of the press secretary, and a boy named Max took the opportunity to press Spicer on President Trump's NAFTA renegotiation, according to Mashable. Spicer told Max that Trump wants to get a better deal to make things more fair. Once the kids were done pretending to care about international trade, they got to go bowling in the White House bowling alley. (More Sean Spicer stories.)
