Tuesday January 24th White House Press Secretary full briefing:
Hope Hicks, Dan Scavino, Sean Spicer
Oh the insufferable press! Although Spicer is new to this job, he’s learning and he’s getting better at it. After eight years of Obama and dealing with Josh Earnest, the press is clearly not used to someone who is not going to be their doormat.

Can they find any reporters with even a little bit of intelligence? These people are simpletons and imbeciles. Get em out. Good Grief.

Most were agenda questions rather than questions to find out something, hence the repeat after repeat of the same question.
Well, to be fair, it was the leftwing media who were the doormats…. 🙂
I think he did quite well with a question about whether President Trump is considering a “mainstream” candidate for the Supreme Court. Spicer’s response: “I think it’s pretty mainstream to follow the Constitution.” (See @ 22:30 – 23:20)

I noticed that Lifezette got the first question and Breitbart got one too. I am not sure about Acosta – I don’t remember him getting one. And the international press got a few too, like the Russian guy. So it was not as dominated by the MSM as in the past.

Oh and Omarosa walked in with Hope Hicks at the beginning. So awesome.
Lifezette, now that was something. Laura Ingraham’s news site got priority over the likes of NYT and CNN. Wow!

To all the press people who asked about vote fraud – there is nothing stopping them from investigating it.

Democrats worry lots about vote fraud,
‘Cuz it’s the only thing that keeps them in office…
It is another attempt to delegitimize the election, then redo the election, for the purpose of delaying forward motion. Pathetic.

Thank you saying that.
The press will keep up the helpless victim shtick than admit they like voter fraud since it benefits the globalists and the Left.
They need to do a “forensic audit” of a few states that Hillary won and it will jump out at you about the Voter Fraud and the Dems know it.

Let’s just start with Virginia.
Bless you Sean. I hope you loves your job. I caught the tail end and they kept asking about illegals voting. I used to be patient but one of my pet peeves is being asked the same thing over and over and over…I doubt if I would make it through the rest of January in that job.
They ask over and over so you feel silly answering the same way over and over, and once you change your answer slightly to just not be so repetitive, they pounce.

I saw them trying to play gotcha. It’s not about informing the masses that’s for sure.

All he has to say is “That question has already been asked/ that topic has already been adressed”. Next?
And if they rephrase it, do the same thing. Just keep saying “Next?” until the bastards catch on. For the life of me, I’ve never figured out why nobody every does that on talking

Or as the lawyers say, “Asked and answered. Next?”
Another way to do it. Have a dry erase board. Everytime they ask basically the same question, make a mark. Then say : “This is how many times you’ve asked basically the same question. How about we quit wasting time and try discussing something else?”
Or someone suggested he carry signs and raise the same sign for the same question.
I’d last 6 minutes with these traitorous bastards and then I’d be dropping F-bombs and MF-bombs left and right.
Getting better every day.
Imam Obamatollah’s first Press Secy, Jay Carney (and wife Claire Shipman), had pro-Communist posters in their home as exposed in a magazine interview.
The Russians hacked Jay Carney’s house! I tell you, those reds are EVERYWHERE!
P.S. I actually thought you were making a joke and this was photoshopped. http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2014/04/why_do_jay_carney_and_claire_shipman_decorate_their_house_with_soviet_propaganda_posters.html
I rather like the old Soviet and Red Chinese poster art–it’s dynamic, colorful, and so so ironic! Fortunately, there’s the People’s Cube to take care of that for me now.
In that piece of camera art, the old poster art was more dynamic. It’s not often we see a ‘casual family’ photo so blatantly staged. It looked like an ad for laundry detergent and spray cooking oil for saucepans… no more like an ad for a pharma drug that can’t really be explained in polite company so they just show wildly happy people having crazy so much fun (after taking the treatment of course.)
Inadvertently, it shifted one’s impression of Jay Carney from ‘just a kid in the job’ to deep sneaky.’ Doubt that was the intention, but who in the production and edit process thought this looked ‘normal?’
Thank you SD!🙆☕
Both Sean and Kellyanne might appreciate hearing from you–if you’re so inclined. I’m sure they could use all the encouragment they can get. Kellyanne, after all, has been receiving death threats and suspicious packages, and Sean is (according to one false news story) on the brink of being fired for his “poor” performance yesterday!
That is a good idea.
Don’t believe any Reports.
Y’all should know better by now!
Did you not read what I wrote? I clearly called it “false,” and last I checked, “false” means “not true”!!!
The bottom line is: The two could use some encouragement!!
Hire Harf and fire Hannitty? Good Lord.
He was taking about Sean Spicer.
“Just hiring people is not the answer…hiring the right people is”
In reference to the VA and the government hiring freeze., followed by ..we need to have our appointees in place.
600ft home run Sean!
They are repugnant.
I absolutely LOVE these press briefings! We are getting REAL information and learning WHO is visiting the WH and actual progress reports! What a breath of fresh air after 8 years of arrogance, obfuscation and pettiness.

I wish that Sean would insist that these reporters please stand when addressing the podium.
Absolutely 1000%. Stand up straight, announce your name and organization. Politely ask your question (only one per reporter). Sit down. Be quiet.
Get it across to the MSM that they no longer “own” or “control” anything in the Trump White House.
Absolutely. The foreign reporters actually are used that sort of thing – so the US reporters are out of line with the rest of the world on that. Too much casual day habits. It’s good for the circulation too, stand up sit down stand up sit down.
What a professional and effective choice Trump has made in Press Sec. Fantastic handling of churlish and hysterical media. All business, keeps moving, many questions covered. Beautifully done Sean Spicer. Great selection Mr. President!
Just let the Russian guy ask all the questions
Laughing with the Russian.
With the real question! Loved it!
Good job today.
Also noticed that Conway and Hicks joined Spicer in the room. Good; they can give him backup if necessary.
So funny the whole obsession of the press with his 3 million illegal votes.
They talk all day about it and that is what President Trump wants. I mean are they really that stupid to not realize by now what the Presidents game is?
Hey maybe it were “only” 600 000 illegals voting but they sure voted. Im sure soon we will see a lot of proof about it.
You are so right. They walked right into the trap.
Dang! You’re learning from the master…. I’m still a little slow at this.
Art of the deal — start out with the ridiculous so that what you want sounds reasonable in comparison.
Agree. Soon he’ll have dems demanding stricter voter ID laws.
Sean did a wonderful job. Refreshing to have a press secretary that tells the truth.
Had to quit with the chubster who was stuck on stupid, pretending that Mr. Trump hadn’t met with key leaders in every facet of the black community. Sean is being way too nice to these scumbags. They are deliberately ignorant and dense. When one of these idiots asks why Mr. Trump only met with so and so, Sean should just say, your question is based on a false premise. List all the people he met with and then we can revisit the issue.
These guys keep throwing out the bait, he’s not taking it. Can’t help but wonder how long it’ll take them to realize that they’re not the only side that’s good with a lure.
Well, the press is on record as expecting an investigation of voter fraud.
Bait taken and hook set….
… and now he reels them in:
“I will be asking for a major investigation into VOTER FRAUD, including those registered to vote in two states, those who are illegal and even, those registered to vote who are dead (and many for a long time),” he wrote. “Depending on results, we will strengthen up voting procedures!”
It was a great press conference, and Sean fielded things well. I love that there are all kinds of news streams included, and also wish they would be required to stand, introduce themselves and their media outlet so that we know who they are, too.
We should expect a bit more from the press. Funny how impatient they are now. Where were they for the last 8 years?
I am disappointed Trump did not implement Sundance’s suggestions for press briefings. The press needs to really taken to the woodshed.
Give it time. It’s only been 72 hours since the Monday opening of the new way of doing business, yes?
The sound seems to have dropped out at ~34 mins in, and didn’t come back
I thought there was voter fraud found in the Detroit voter returns??? Why isn’t this being mentioned? The Democrats act like there is NO … repeat … NO … voter fraud. There should be a petition started to address a Federal investigation. I want bragging rights to the popular vote totals the same as President Trump. ( I still LOVE typing “President Trump” ! )
First minor step on immigration tomorrow
Report: Trump to take executive action on immigration this Wednesday
By ANNA GIARITELLI (@ANNA_GIARITELLI) • 1/24/17 6:32 PM
President Trump is expected to sign multiple executive actions on Wednesday that would tighten U.S. immigration policies, according to a report Tuesday.
The signings are set to take place at the Department of Homeland Security. The orders are likely to include restricting immigration from countries where the Islamic State has strongholds, including Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, Reuters reported.
I think restricting immigration from Islamic State countries is a major move. It will be fun to watch the heads explode.
Lou is cutting the WH press pool down to size.
Hehe. My mom says Trump,should just send out a tweet everyday. Number one we don’t do twitter. Number two she’s 76.
I signed up for Twitter just so I could follow our POTUS. And Sundance. And a couple others…
That’s what happens when you watch too many Sylvester and Tweety Bird Cartoons! Your mom sounds like a great lady!
Loved the old cartoons.
Lou Dobbs just suggested, for the second day in a row, that the WH Press Corps is under direct order from their Corporte Media Bosses to undermine Trump any way they can.
He said that is the only explanation for their ridiculous, repetitive, irrelevant questions.
And then what happens when M.Spicer says, “You’ve asked the same question since Monday and my Monday reply which you already have, as everyone else here does too, is the same. Moving on – you, sir, in the grey suit from Icelandic Daily Digest, you Ma’am from the Tanzania Weekly Roundup and you from the Lichtenstein Evening Digest – what would you reporters like to ask?” Uh-huh, hmm – Oh good questions!
Love these press briefings. First, nice job, Mr Spicer. Second, the liberal press feels the cold wind that shuts down voter fraud looming over the horizon. Let me answer that one, it will be fixed by 2018. Last, I notice he likes a lot of trusted eyes in every room. Great policy, he will learn a lot from that quickly. Loyalty and frankness, check.
Dobbs says there will be no further confirmations this week becasue the Republicans scheduled a RETREAT!!!!!!!!!
So the Repubs have conspired with the Dims to obstruct Trump’s cabinet pix.
Why? Is something on the horizon, some pre-planned event to trip Trump up?
I do NOT trust any of them.
I am so proud of Sean Spicer! What a difference between Sean Spicer and Josh Ernest who served O and gave slow, evading, watered-down BS answers.
Sean serves up his answers to the press straight up, like a quality, smooth Gray Goose vodka….not too much, not too little, but just right.
PS…I dare to predict that the press will end up loving Sean Spicer, and that they will look forward to the question/answer exchanges. No matter what questions they pose, there is a mix of honesty, good will as well as measured criticism, and a little humor coming toward them from Sean. Who wouldn’t love that?
That will depend on just how mentally and morally twisted the leftist media is. It will be interesting to see. Are they redeemable? I say no, but will be happy to be proved wrong.
Janc2955, I thought the same as you say while I wrote that, but somehow counted on a miracle.
Thinking that with this new approach, even we remotely will be able to see a very clear break between journalists versus hacks. There are earnest ones out there – they may have the general bias as it’s been conventional wisdom, yet they are trying, but the MSM has been the bully in the room, hogging all the spaces and air. Check the faces – 2/3 of the group is smiling most of the time, but there’s about 1/3 maybe /14 that have that licked a lemon look. The private conversations must be fascinating now – the perpetually shut out crowd is loving this.
Excellent press briefing. I must say Spicer is much more enjoyable than Earnest. He has a ready smile and he is rapidly becoming more comfortable at the podium. I particularly enjoy the extra time he gives to the foreign press.
Has anybody noticed all the reporters are wearing suits and ties?
I really enjoyed watching this. I like how he is giving time to foreign press and others, ie not the establishment idiots. Notice how MSM keeps asking about same stupid point, today it is about voter fraud and trying to corner POTUS on some brief remark he said and then they can get him to say he will investigate and then it is the Russians again and then it will be popular vote…they ask nothing of any importance, just their talking points that they are still getting from the DNC. Their stupidity is embarrassing…rather hear a question from a genuine voice like Christian, Irish, Russian…just a real person asking a question even if it isn’t profound, at least it is honest.
I love love love ❤️ Spicer.
Tucker just took a youngster apart…….
