Mothers Of The White House: Sarah Sanders, Kellyanne Conway And Mercedes Schlapp Share Their Stories.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway and White House Strategic Communications Director Mercedes Schlapp have a total of 12 children between them. They hold some of the most important, influential roles in government: all while executing the duties that all working moms share.
The Daily Caller sat down with each of them to discuss their roles and responsibilities as some of the most prominent working mothers in the country.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders cherishes her role as a mother to three children 6 years and under.
She doesn’t shy away from the fact that there are difficult motherhood days – similar to dealing with CNN’s Jim Acosta.
Sanders responded to a question: “What’s more difficult: Dealing with your children on an onerous day or dealing with [CNN reporter] Jim Acosta?”
“Both of them whine pretty regularly. They both like to ask the same questions and sometimes their tone needs to be adjusted a little bit. So I think that having kids has prepared me for the job that I have right now,”
“In all seriousness, I think that having kids is great preparation for anything, especially a job you need patience for and they have certainly prepared me for this one,” said Sanders.
Sanders also expressed gratitude that her children are still too young to read “some of the negative stories that exist out there,” and that she tries to protect them from such backlash as much as possible – while offering some words of wisdom for other working moms.
“I try to make sure I’m very intentional with the time that I have with my kids,” Sanders continued. “I’m gonna miss some of the moments, but the ones that I do have, I really try to focus on them, put my phone aside, block out some of the stress of work and really focus my time and attention on what they want to talk about and really zero in on them.”
“I love my job. It’s an honor to work for the president, but there are a lot of people that have had this job before and there are a lot of people who are going to have it after,” Sanders added. “The most important, influential job I have is being a mom. There are a number of people who can do the job I have. Only one person can be the mom to my kids. So that’s certainly the most important and influential role I’ll ever have. I’m trying hard not to screw it up.”
Watch Michelle Wolf “Roast” Sarah Sanders at White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Sickening!

Great article! Anytime I can read about a jab here & there regarding that little cock roach Jim Acosta…puts a smile on my face. These women should be very proud as they do their jobs with class & dignity. A wonderful example of strong independent mothers of America!
Jim Acosta doesn't have a chance!
Great article And beautifully said. Any working mother can relate to the description of motherhood being the best preparation for ANY other job dealing with the public. In addition to a big dose of patience, children teach you to be forward -thinking,resourceful, adaptable, creative,master of psychology, able to persevere- and they those skills they teach by the timethey’re four or so a Mom with teenagers can handle almost anything once she’s mastered the technical skills of whatever job it is.
A great tribute to America’s moms.
All this was evident in how Sarah Sanders handled the comedienne, she simply let her do her bashing, until the comedienne did herself in
How is it my browser doesn't work on the story about Sarah comparing jim to a child, but works for the ignorant comedian? Is someone blocking the good stories?
That so called comedian is disgusting! Was that really suppose to be funny? I hope someone lets that ugly person know how to behave in society because as far as I'm concerned she belongs in a pig pen with the other pigs. Notice she didn't get much for laughs and the idiots that did laugh are total losers. I would have been booing the whole time!
