Perhaps the most interesting exchange in the Trump news conference yesterday came when a reporter asked the president if he thought that by mocking the press he was damaging the 1st Amendment. Did anyone else catch that one? What a freaking joke!!!

A. Here you have a sitting president holding an live, open and unscripted news conference with a room full of reporters and they whine about freedom of the press and the 1st Amendment. Sheesh!!!!!

B. The media has made a mockery of itself........not the other way around. These crybabies just aren't used to someone calling them out for it and being effective in doing so.

This is going to be an entertaining few years.

I know your feeble little mind didn't think of this thought all on its own, so where did you get this talking point? Fox and Friends or Hannity?

No doubt. If Watergate, Iran-Contra, S&L, and WMD are what competent Republican administrations manage, this is going to be a first rate botch up.

Came up with it all on my own. You might be shocked to learn that I don't watch either of the shows you referenced or much television at all for that matter.

I guess if you can't come up with a meaningful response to the original post the best you can do is try to insult the original poster. loser

Trump could get impeached tomorrow and it wouldn't help the establishment media's credibility problem that much.

I think it's interesting that even the media now has to fear exposure of their unethical conduct by the media. To the extent that external control keeps them (more) honest I think that's great.

Checks and balances.

Because your post is ridiculous on its face. Trump's presser was the equivalent of Chris Ward winning the Surfer Poll and saying he wins more contests than Slater and Fanning and then going on a rant about how he was assaulted by Jacuzzi Booty while trying to administer emotional support hugs to an icicle.

He likes that that mad king is putting everyone on the defensive.

Never mind that having a mad king is not good for the kingdom

Actually I think Wardo at his most blacked out would have held a better press conference. Possibly Randall too.

The media made a mockery of itself? Were we watching the same press conference?
