Press Secretary Sean Spicer Delivers First White House Full Press Briefing (Video)…

Immediate DC legacy-media ‘splodey heads because this White House doesn’t defer to Washington DC insider corporate news agencies. The Trump White House sent a clear message to DC-based major media outlets, and that set a tone of equality the tender snowflakes within corporate media just cannot accept.

.

For decades the White House has deferred to newswires and major TV networks, all of whom are represented in the first row of the White House briefing room, for the first several questions at the daily briefing. However, press secretary Sean Spicer called on very different group of reporters.

He first called on the New York Post. Then, the Christian Broadcasting Network. That was followed by Univision and Fox Business. Spicer then took a question from Urban Radio Network, and then finally the Associated Press, which up until now has usually gotten the first question.

Epic arrogant media ‘splodeys begin immediately as NBC’S Kelly O’Donnell said Spicer was skipping over major news outlets that cover the White House all day, every day.

  2. Something ironic dawned on me today while watching this. There was a question asked if the President intends to meet with the Congressional Black Caucus and the Congressional Latino Caucus. My reaction was prudently no. But if you think about it this is a brilliant strategy to keep GOPe/NeverT’s/DNC at bay to pass virtually anything he wants. Rhino’s honor the OneChina and are beholden to China for that reason. Rhino’s also don’t have the guts to use DNC tactics against them. This President can and very well may. It disables most of the de facto political armor that the DNC has come to rely too heavily on. And it will finally come back to haunt them.

      The question I heard was “when is the Spanish speaking web site going to be back up and running”. I think the Spanish speaking folks need to realize they are in America and our national language is American English. Perhaps it is time we knock off all the accommodation American tax payers are making to pander to multiculturalism.
      That is not racist, it is realistic, and a cost savings.

English is a worldwide language and a must for business and commerce; Italy and France are nearby. However, Switzerland does not provide translations in Spanish, Portuguese nor nor Samoan nor Vietnamese nor the other many other foreign languages.

              Switzerland is basically the best example of how to deal with having multiple languages under one roof. There are, if I recall, four languages that have been spoken there for centuries, and very little squabbling about it, and I suspect it’s largely because the central government provides so little there’s not much for “interest groups” to fight over. There isn’t much feeling that the government favors the Francophones over the Germans or vice versa, because it’s not doing all that much in the first place. They’d be as irate as we are over the Spanish speakers (even though the other groups there are native) if that were not so.

              Canada has more tension. The fedgov officially pushes bilingualism as a policy, but apparently only one province (New Brunswick) is truly so. Quebec wants French only, Manitoba westward wants English only, as do the other Maritmes. Only Ontario seems to want bilingualism as a policy. Just goes to show that trying to make everyone happy with a top-down solution doesn’t work very well.

              As for English being spoken worldwide, I think in a way that skews our perspective here in America. Other places have to learn a foreign language, we don’t, because we happen to speak English to begin with. (Sometimes it’s even grammatical!)

              But even there, it’s rarely an official language of the government.

              The Dutch, so far as I know, only have Dutch as their official language, but, surrounded as they are by three much larger countries, they generally all have some French, German and English. The older they are though, the more time they’ve had to forget those languages especially if they aren’t in a career that requires them.

              It’s beneficial to know some foreign languages, but it’s anathema to spend millions or even billions of tax dollars catering to people who live here but cannot/will not learn English. No ballot–something that should require citizenship to even have to deal with–should ever be bilingual.

              I say this as someone who had a naturalized citizen grandfather whose English wasn’t very good. But it was present, and he never once bitched about his language not being available.

      • Of course it is not “racist,” as language is not a race and Spanish-speaking peoples are of all races. What IS discriminatory is providing Spanish, yet not Italian nor Portuguese nor German nor Samoan nor Vietnamese nor Chinese nor any of the other 300+ other foreign languages spoken in America. To be fair to all, either have it in English only, or have it also translated in all 300+ languages. We cannot cater to just one language. And probably not feasible to have it translated in over 300 languages. Therefore, it is much more equal and fair to just have it in English.

        There are outside agencies and volunteer groups or low-cost or no-cost services that assist immigration of foreigners with language if they need assistance and let them use these if need be, but we need not treat the rest of immigrants in America unfairly by catering to only one language.

        It’s funny, the Africans that come to Italy all speak English and they speak it well too. Even the Arabs and Moroccans here speak English. There are more than a dozen African countries where English is an official language. These include Zimbabwe, Uganda, Zambia, Botswana. Namibia, Kenya, Sierra Leone, Liberia, South Africa, and Nigeria.


        Spanish language, only one of the 300+ languages spoken in America, to be fair either post translations in all language or English only.

        English is one of the easiest languages to learn. My Italian cousin here in Italy learned English in 6 months during her 6-month stay in UK.

After noticing the reporters huddled outside the White House in the rain one day, he gave them their own room inside, effectively inventing the presidential press briefing. The grateful press, with unprecedented access to the White House, rewarded Roosevelt with ample coverage”.

    Sean Spicer did an excellent job in this administration’s first press conference!!!!

    The media continue to show how diabolically biased they are, as evidenced by the question by Jonathan Karl. I don’t remember anybody asking that question during the pressers of the last administration. But we all know the MSM is not interested in facts, but rather in fashioning a narrative to advance their globalist/Leftist agenda.

    They are unhinged and totally rabid.

    This was so good to watch and I loved the sound of sense being made, questions being answered without hesitation and without spin. I loved the repeated statement about President Trump’s objective of keeping the American workers’ interests first/America’s economy first, above any other country and above any other interests.
    Awesome press conference. 🙂

    Seems like having a new group of select news organizations covering the White House 24/7 is a good idea. Given that the person asking the question drives this dialog, and that.these are times of media sedition, having that group be picked by the President seems like an even better idea. I am sure that the prestige would outweigh the cost of providing resources for this purpose. The old group of “select” “news” organizations are obviously working against us so why allow them to drive the dialog ?.

  33. I did not care for Sean Spicer’s reason of it being “demoralizing to the Trump Administration and volunteer workers” as being the problem with the media’s unfair and untrue reporting. At no time did Sean just flat out simply say “the American people deserve the truth and facts” and leave it at that. Instead Sean went on an on making it sound like the Trump staff is so dependent on the reports of the media to feel good and stay energized, that they become DEMORALIZED having hurt feelings to see the MSM reporting it falsely.

    It sounded weak and like he was begging CNN “please don’t hurt us,” to me it came off like whining. It made me cringe.

    CNN’s unfair and untrue reporting should be stopped because it is propaganda to skew the news in the way they are doing it. BECAUSE IT IS UNFAIR TO THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES. Period. Not because we are snowflakes and get demoralized and hurt feelings which is how I heard Sean say it.

    I understand it was Sean’s first press conference, and I am hoping he will speak for us rather than how it affects his staff. If his staff gets their feelings hurt and become demoralized over the lying MSM we got bigger problems than the media.

    • With that said, Sean was very pleasant and is people friendly and has a great smile and a big heart. Not sure that is always good with alligators though. He was spot on keeping the questions and answers precise, giving answers honestly and truthfully. It was a very good first press conference. I would prefer Stephen Miller who gets straight to the point and doesn’t get submissive nor accommodating to the press. He words for us, not the press. The press is there to get information for us the people. In any case, obviously Sean Spicer is who and how Trump likes it so I trust his reasoning for choosing him. Perhaps Sean takes the lumps out. Balancing out Trump’s decisive stance. No worries.
