That is not a frigging news conference!

He comes out and the media bow down (literally) before him behind a rope line and he says whatever he wants to say and if he answers any questions, it is the ones he wants to talk about. He doesn't answer anything that he doesn't want to talk about. It is his style of spewing out his propaganda.

It is a farce!

I can't. I just don't know why they just let him get away with this crap. Just let him say whatever, more lies - that go unchecked - which just goes to rile up his base.

He's Hispanic, He's Hispanic - He got good grades - In regards to Acosta. WTF??? I just couldn't take it anymore.

to the Midwest for two private fundraisers, with one short speech thrown in regarding the new nafta. Who's paying? The campaign or the taxpayers?

and sometimes sound shrill, while he pretends to not hear and hear what he wants. Absolutely no respect.

Almost with stupid media types clamoring for his attention. Everything about this ass clown is hateful.

I figure if he says anything important ( ) I can catch it somewhere else that I don't have to watch him or hear his wimpy voice.

The whole idea of the Press Secretary "speaking on behalf" of the President is a joke. No President has said what he really thinks in a hundred years.
