“As far as BuzzFeed, which is a failing pile of garbage — writing (the article about the dossier) — think they’re going to suffer the consequences,” Trump said.

They sure did get into an argue, Conservatives contrude this a being rude, Liberal media confirms what intelligent people know, Trump refusal to answer the question will be more of the norm and we wonder why the Republicans feel comfortable being ill informed.

Refreshing to have a press conference where the reporters and questions are not hand picked by the politician.

Blissed-out fools in their brain dead comfort zone, eating up cheap catchphrases from the smarmiest car salesman on the lot.

Welcome to Trump's fun-house America.

What should concern you is the fact that Republicans are like students being told of a impending test but the fools never once ask the teachers, who and what is giving the test, thus the reason that most Republicans are not prepared for anything remotely to a real question......I see the trending here, if your response seem to fall flat, lie or call the questionnaire a liar and uninformed. whistle
Case in point, ask a Republican what do they plan to replace the ACA with after the repeal, watch the stupid look on their face. Lets be frank here, after 7 years of preparation, they still find themselves stumped.

Yes they are. comment on morning news was Trump holds first news conference in 6 months. Like it was a bad thing. They must have forgotten Hilary's lack of news conferences, except the staged ones of course.

This Is Why You Don't Kiss The Ring

Hamilton Nolan
The Concourse

11 January 2017

Ethical guidelines exist for a reason. Norms exist for a reason.

The reason is not “Jerks who think they’re smarter than us trying to control our lives from on high.” The reason is that human history is long, and all of the mistakes that could possibly be made have been made, and at a certain point people figured out that following some common sense rules could prevent us from making the same dire mistakes over and over again. Mistakes that come from human nature. Mistakes like: allowing powerful people to use their powerful positions to make money for themselves, or allowing powerful people to use their powerful positions to squelch legitimate dissent, or allowing powerful people to use their powerful positions to flout the very ethical guidelines and norms that prior people in powerful positions established to keep people in powerful positions in check.

Today we saw a “press conference” by our incoming president at which he put forth a farcical plan to allow his own sons to continue running his vast business empire while he is president, and spoke at length about his belief that as president it is impossible for him to have meaningful conflicts of interest, which is why he felt comfortable presenting his decision to turn down a $2 billion business deal with a Middle Eastern real estate mogul as something noble, rather than as an obvious decision that would be made as a matter of course under a normal presidential administration. He dismissed serious reporting that reflected poorly on him as “fake news,” and promised to retaliate against news outlets that displeased him. These things are not normal. These things are not okay. These are actions that flout well-established ethical and civil norms. Admittedly, there is something thrilling about watching him do this. What will he do next? It always keeps us tuning in, in the same way that a violent alcoholic father will always keep his children on his toes. But we should not fool ourselves about what is happening in front of our eyes. We are all coming to realize that our civil society institutions may not be strong enough to protect the flawed but fundamentally solid democracy that we thought we had. We are witnessing the rise to power of a leader who does not care about norms. Since these norms were created to prevent political, social, economic, and cultural disasters, we do not need to wonder how this will end. It will end poorly.

This is why you don’t kiss the ring of Donald Trump. This is why you don’t visit him in his golden tower and sit stiffly in a spacious conference room to hear his nonsensical thoughts about “innovation.” This is why you don’t tousle his hair playfully on late night television, or allow him to hold off-the-record meetings with your news organization. This is why you don’t pose in smiling pictures with him, or defer to him out of some misplaced sense of decorum or respect for the office he is soon to occupy. This is why there was so much fear over the “normalization” of what he is and what he represents. Our society and our institutions are simply not set up to deal with someone who is fully prepared to flout all of our norms of good behavior. Our system, to a large degree, relies on social sanction rather than laws to prevent powerful people from getting too far out of line. When our most powerful person is willing to ignore all of that, there is not much in place to stop him. The normalization process is well underway. The pomp and circumstance and deference will only increase after the inauguration. The press and the Congress are the only two institutions standing between a dangerous man and total power. They must both realize this is not the time to salute and grovel. This is not the time to fall into familiar patterns of default respect for someone who does not himself respect the responsibility to the public that he has been given. This is the time for them to rise to the occasion. And the occasion is a fight for civil society.

This is not going to be a free and fair exchange of ideas. This is going to be a fight. If you have not absorbed that fact yet, you are already losing.

This is only going to get worse.

That was the most disgusting excuse for a news conference I ever saw. Trump brought in his own cheering section! If Trump hasn't turned our democracy into his own dictatorship in four years I will be shocked. America is in real trouble.

Donald Trump’s first press conference as president-elect will be best-remembered for his jeering at the press and vague dismissals of financial and ethical impropriety. But buried inside the taunting and dissembling was a Trump moment that stands out as a kind of microcosmic footnote—subtle yet representative of his ability to scramble the news cycle with simple falsehoods.

“Right now, there are 96 million [people] wanting a job and they can't get [one],” he said. “You know that story. The real number. That's the real number."

No. That’s not “the real number.”

This is a perfect example of the effect Trump will have on any policy debate he seizes. He takes a fraught yet critical topic—American work, lack of the work, and the way the U.S. government addresses both—reduces it to a bizarro sound bite that bears no relationship to reality, and bends the political and policy conversation toward his dramatic warping of the truth, all without offering a substantive plan to address even the moderate version of his apocalyptic proclamations.

The Not so Honorable Mr. McCain, and NBC, did a nice hit on Mr. Trump, but somebody got caught.

Did I miss something? Did McCain have something to do with this press conference? I think McCain is a very honorable POW compared to that draft dodger Trump.

Donald Trump just found out how it feels to be slandered by the powerful and he doesn’t like it.

After powering his way to the presidency with innuendo, slander, and lies, Trump was painted as a sexual pervert,
corrupt businessman, and Russian pawn in an explosive dossier published by BuzzFeed.

None of the claims have been proven, as BuzzFeed noted at the time. Some, like a purported meeting between Trump’s attorney and the Russians, have been proven false since publication.

BuzzFeed was no doubt motivated to publish the dossier because it believed it was telling truth to power. But now Trump is using BuzzFeed’s decision to try to delegitimize the entire press as “fake news.” No one has done more to spread fake news than Trump, from promoting birther nonsense to retweeting false crime statistics to giving interviews to conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

This provides an opportunity to cut through the sickening situational ethics of the past few months. If it was wrong when Trump used gossip to slander his enemies, then it’s wrong when journalists publish gossip that slanders Trump.
