She talks about how the non-televised press gatherings can be very productive. How it is very important to be in the White House to get a feel for what the Trump administration is working on at any given moment.

Gabby, says there are no typical days when working at the White House but that it is an exciting place to be. She often writes as many as six stories a day from her desk in the White House press area.

She also talks about the size of the press briefing room that is like an average size classroom. She talks about how it is nice to have other reporters brought into the press briefings via Skype, something that Spicer has done recently.

Some of the more fun times around the White House are the tours, the visiting dignitaries, the big press conferences and anytime President Trump takes to the podium to speak.
