      Trump's Press Conference

      Alternate Facts Amid A Series Of Scandals



      By Ray Cunneff

      2-16-2017


      Trump's press conference today was a meandering exercise in deflection, an attempt to get the media talking about anything other than Gen. Michael Flynn's resignation as National Security Adviser or Trump's Russian entanglements.

      But I don't think it worked this time. What was supposed to be his introduction of Alex Acosta as his nominee for Secretary of Labor was instead a rambling diatribe, mostly directed at the "dishonest" media and the "low-life leakers" who he claims are in the Intelligence community but are more likely in his own administration.

      Acosta was not present at this press conference and his name was barely mentioned before the president launched into this often incoherent and unresponsive back-and-forth with the press. There were so many weird exchanges that it's hard to know what the headline should be. That he didn't know what the CBC was, then asked a reporter to set up a meeting with the Congressional Black Caucus? That he once again avoided a question by proclaiming his 306 electoral votes in the election as the "biggest since Ronald Reagan", which it is not. (Obama had bigger electoral vote tallies in both his elections.)

      With his administration in obvious crisis, Trump claimed the chaotic first month of his presidency is actually “running like a fine-tuned machine” and that he had “inherited a mess” from President Obama. Responding to questions from reporters, Trump declared that “the leaks are real. The news is fake.”

      The takeaway today was a delusional liar still litigating an election that he won, still in denial about Russian influence in the election and in his administration, still proving he's utterly unprepared to actually govern.

          He firmed his base, I'll give you that.

          Added to it would be a stretch. Just what was it in that diatribe that you think brought people to him?
