“I think it’s kind of naive of us to think that we can all walk into a room for a couple of hours and pretend that some of that tension isn’t there,” Sarah Huckabee Sanders told ABC’s “This Week.”

Sanders compared Trump’s open hostility with the press to getting egged.

“One of the things we say in the South [is] if a Girl Scout egged your house, would you buy cookies from her? I think that this is a pretty similar scenario,” Sanders said.

“There’s no reason for him to go in and sit and pretend like this is going to be just another Saturday night.”
