Kellyanne Conway to press:
-"I haven’t heard anyone in here speak Latin in a while." (A quid pro quo jab.)
-“God bless you.” (When a journalist sneezed.) “We say God in the briefing room."

As Conway was being asked about impeachment, a reporter sneezed.
“God bless you,” Conway said, before responding to the question.
Conway then doubled back to the reporter and noted that, “we say ‘God’ in our briefing room, God bless you.”
