    Voting and the election is done. Mueller can now make announcements and indictments without concern. He's been quiet for quite some time. That must make the Orange one nervous. In January when the new House is seated, he'll be frantic once they start investigating.

    Trump drew ambiguous gracious visous lines. He will seek more divisions and get compromises.
    Dramaic press conference of “I”. This in a class case on how powerful narcissists win.
    Be wary of your critics, at peace with your decisions, and work hard to be a better man.

    Just think what he'd be like if he was losing.

    What's scary is the number of voters who support him and his party! It beggars belief that anyone puts up with this idiot!

    I watched the footage and thought - "thats not so bad".
    Just shows how far normal has been pushed into the 'unhinged' end of the spectrum.

    You forget that leaders usually have a high degree of charisma and decorum - and that shouty men are usually found in the pub half drunk at 4pm.

    I thought he did very well today. It was an amazing day for the 1st Am. Trump took 68 questions from 35 different reporters and allowed Jim Acosta to beclown himself. It was beautiful.

    .........most of Trumps base love it when he arks up at the press....It's a winning tactic for him in two ways, the second being the weakening of checks and balances that an effective independent media brings.
    If war is the answer........... it must be a profoundly stupid question

    Sorry about my Trump-induced nuclear crisis post above. I got out of bed this morning with that on my mind, and failed to look down the complete list of new post, otherwise I would have seen this. Talk about the way Trump "sucks the oxygen out" of the daily Washington news!

    This whole thing really begs for a process story, which I really hope someone will publish over the next few days.

    Whose idea was this PC? They're so infrequent that there must be some WH consensus that they're a bad idea, but someone must have thought there was a Very Good Reason for this one. Who pushed for it?
    Clearly trump expected things to go down a certain way, and that didn't happen. Why did he have that false expectation?

    Was this just Version 2.0 of Spicer's "inauguration crowd size" kickoff? This time it was trump himself calling the disappointing results a victory, daring the media to confront it so that the story could be about the confrontation instead of the disappointment?

    I’m thinking this press conference was planned and scripted and went exactly the way he wanted it to go.

    Now imagine for one moment if Obama had acted in the childish and abrasive way that Trump did during this PC. Fox news would have had a complete meltdown.

    But, as we all know the bar for Obama was set astronomically higher than for Trump.

    I thought Acosta was out of line, honestly. You don't get four or five questions.

    But the way President Trump responded was worse - he embarrassed himself being such a whiny little prat. I imagine how any previous President would have used humor, or calmly moved on. Nope, Trump had to sissy slap him and ban him.

    As for the rest, he couldn't understand any reporter with an accent, gave vapid answers to almost every question, and looked terrible - even the spray tan can't cover his blotchy complexion - and he seemed low energy and out of breath.

    His medical exam last year revealed that he had an elevated coronary calcium level, which is common but serious, and he doesn't seem to have moderated his diet or exercise regime as recommended by Dr. Jackson. I think pro-Trumpers ought to put his physical health above Mueller as a danger to his presidency.

    Trump really didn't give an answer to any of them Chris. The only thing Accosta do poorly was preface his questions to Trump with, "I challenge you to........". That WAS a mistake. You know the word "Challenge" is bound to send Trump into orbit!

    No President in our history has been spoken to or treated this way by the press. Trump was conducting an open-ended presser where he took 68 different questions from 35 different journalists, presenting himself openly for questions on any number of subjects. Trump is right. Elements of the elite press are the enemy of the people.

    And I think that Trump's critics should consider a campaign to send twice-daily deliveries of supersized Happy Meals to the Oval Office.
