      “these career bureaucrats…should either get with the program, or go.”

      BOOM 😀

      and…”coming to America is a privilege not a right.”

      news flash to the putzy cry babies on the Left who seem to think the world is entitled to be here.

    Stop giving them so much time to ask So many questions! Perhaps a specific follow up but one question per time called upon. Maybe then they won’t waste time asking questions that have already been asked and answered.

    And who are these self important reporters who think the rest of the world already knows who they are? Introduce yourself and the organization/publication that you represent!

      Agreed, please introduce some basic decorum, STAND, name, publication, then quickly slouch back down and ask ONE question.

      • Katherine McCoun says:

        yes, or stand for the question and while being answered and ask one follow up question that is actually a follow up question to the first question asked.

        Have a list of pre selected reporters to call on for the day that rotates and varies so that all news services get a similar number of questions over a week’s time. Eliminated the yelling out questions and talking over each other and talking over the ending of answers. this is not a confrontation (supposedly). They act like a pack of dogs being thrown some fresh meat!

        And I would LOVE to see him make a point of Fake News or False Reporting such as calling this a Muslim ban. Anyone misquoting or showing such inexcusable ignorance of facts or purposeful contortions of truth should be publicly corrected, should loose the question time for that day and not get questions for a while.

        Let’s demand journalistic integrity! These press briefings are a thrill to watch as so much is happening and being fixed but so aggravating at the same time!

      It’s not that they think we know who they are. It’s that they think no one is watching, which was true until very recently.

    I went looking for a quick avenue (other than Twitter) to contact Mr. Spicer and found this:

    https://seanspicer.com/contact/

    (That’s his contact page, by the way).

    I don’t know how often he accesses this (his Twitter link from this site isn’t very recent), but I sent off a complimentary message anyway in the hopes that he will see it.

    We can’t give him a medal, but we can let him know he’s doing a great job (as well as sharing any suggestions you might have for making improvements to an already stellar performance).

      True, Clydeen. I even took notes (so much happening so quickly, I confuse depts and people). I was surprised when the presser came to an end, as I had been engrossed the entire time; mind hadn’t wandered once. Civics, history, politics courses all wrapped up in each presser, each Presidential Tweet and Whitehouse access every day.

      Thank you, Mr. President.

    Spicer needs to stop responding to already answered questions. One question each, with follow-ups at Spicer’s discretion. If someone re-asks or re-frames an already answered question, they lose their turn.

    Stop coddling these idiots. It only encourages them.

    Spicer is excellent. I was on the live thread over on The_Donald and when I left there were 1873 comments!

    He has a fan club there! LOL! Mostly Millenials who hate the press and love his smackdowns. They loved him bringing those blow-ups of the documents today.

    Myself, I appreciated that he hit right back at Obama and his people, rather than taking the former milquetoast attitufe of previous GOP presidents. It was great!

    Also, importantly, this puts the burden on the countries to police their own citizens. Why should all the burden and expense be on the US dealing with incoming foreigners? One US city airport has more air traffic than most of these countries airports combined. If these countries want proper access to the US for all of their citizens – and business – then they have a duty/interest to stop troublemakers – now they’ve got a choice: take their share of the responsibility and get access or not.
    With very very few exceptions, these countries do know who the troublemakers are and have more than a good idea as to what they’ve been up to and who they hang out with; they have been playing a game pretending they have no idea. Particularly a country like Yemen is low population, clan-based. People there are not anonymous, they have relatives everywhere in the country. They can be anonymous in the big US, but not in their home countries.

    • Trump may make this real simple:

      If a foreign country (the only ones who KNOW their citizens) lets a terrorist sympathizer onto a flight to the USA, they forfeit $10 million – EVERY TIME. Take it from AID, take it from TRADE – who cares.

      Seriously, anyone watching this who didn’t know what was going on would think media members are short on comprehension. Too many repetitive questions, too many explanations having to be made about things that should be obvious. We could get much more substantive news if they would get off their adversarial agendas and just think, then report.

          Used to have a local TV reporter who was known for asking softball questions and then ended interviews with a “gotcha” question. She then would always play ONLY the gotcha on the news that evening.
          I asked one of her frequent targets about it soon after she started that method of “journalism” and he told me that all the business and politicians in the area had adopted a canned reply to the “gotcha”. They all started saying, “Maggie, I don’t have a fusking clue!”

    Wonderful calling on the reporter from India, who said very nice things. Gee he looked delighted to be called on. Not anyone around him LOL. But this is more important than just WH press room positioning. It’s great international relations in small venues, yet with people whose job it is to report to a lot of other people.

    The fact that POTUS Trump has spoken with PM Modi is BIG-BIG-YUGE in India. Modi was in the ‘first group of heads of state that Trump has spoken directly with. Indians watch protocol moves with a microscope and they resent the old diplomacy of treating Pakistan and India the same. They got a fright the past 8 years when Obama upended that to favor Pakistan and China. Be careful when one wishes for ‘change.’

    This rather obsessive attention to ‘face’ will be good at times, exasperating at other times, too easy to inadvertently offend. The reporter’s question about India getting on the Security Council is exactly what they believe they should have – to be recognized in the top global powers, so that desire should be plainly understood.

    The visa issues will hit a couple of Indian companies hard, but the people in India who have the education and tech skills for high tech come from no more than one or two higher castes – a very small percentage of the work force – a reality which US tech companies found out about a bit late.

    They assumed endlessly drawing from a billion low-wage high tech population but those castes come out of only about 100 million, and out of that university grad techies of the right age, make up only a small fraction of the total. The US companies hit the wall – far less skilled tech workers than they’d imagined. 300 million Indians are untouchables – dalits so they have been denied the education to be able to go into tech, leaving the rest of India in lower classes labor and services. So the average Indian middle lower class/caste isn’t affected by any change in HB1 type visas. They aren’t in that game and never will be. They want affordable food security, clean water – those sorts of things – and national security from invasion and attacks.

    • Prediction: President Trump will use the REVERSE of his “Bring American Plants and Jobs Back” strategy with India … “Bring Indian H1B Visa Workers Back” to India.

      Imagine the POWER of the Bilateral Trade Deal Trump can cut when you consider the value that those workers can add to the Indian Economy?
