    That rude and massively stupid NYT reporter should be made to wear a pussy hat at all future briefings. Nice how Spicer bitch-slapped him.

    Sean is doing a great job! So happy that tomorrow they will be skyping in 4 additional reporters from across the country. That will mean less time for the moonbats that are currently in the room.

      Also serves as another public shaming opportunity, where random people over the internet ask more useful questions than the “professional” “journalists”.

      Not that the megacorporate Bigs have any actual shame, but it exposes their incompetence and duplicity like nothing else.

        Random people? Any chance someone from here/this sphere of influence can get in to ask why they aren’t arresting and hauling those flea baggers back to work?

      • These aren’t “random people.” I know one of them: Lars Larson, former news reporter for Portland Oregon’ Channel 12, went to Russia (USSR) and came back with an excoriating report on that poor country. Left television and became a radio talker. He worked his way up, learning and becoming more polished over the years until he now has a national three-hour radio show, where he give preference to “naysayers.”
        “Naysayers come to the front of the line,” he announces, then debates the moonbats with delight and reason.

    i have become a avid press briefing watcher since trump came into office. i knew the media was a bunch of cheap, greasy swamp scum but i had no idea that they were also incredibly stupid. these are the people america has allowed to formulate opinion, brainwash minds, control the masses, distort the truth? i am appalled. there was a particular a odius jurinalist that wanted sean to DEFINE betrayal, another who didn’t seem to understand it wasn’t a travel BAN, etc. i think sean is to be commended and rewarded accordingly by all of us on social media. i know i couldn’t do this, i would have been fired that first week. I also can’t wait to hear the media complain when trump goes to mar a lago next weekend: WHAT? he just got into office and already taking off?

      My thoughts exactly. These are supposed to be professionals, and I would think being part of the White House press briefings would signal that one is considered competent and worthy of that honor, and yet they look like imbeciles.

      At the rate that his appointments are going, why shouldn’t Trump take a few hours of down time?

      They seem to be working half days, so they wont miss him.

      Given the amount of work he’s likely to do in Florida, they wont even notice he’s gone.

    Here is a question for someone on Skype to ask tomorrow,

    The immigration official said that staffers at one Department of Homeland Security office were devastated when they arrived at work Monday morning to find an email, circulated among DHS leadership over the weekend, informing department personnel that they would no longer be permitted to adjudicate any immigration claims from the seven countries targeted by Trump's travel ban, including petitions for asylum, permanent residency, or naturalization.
    
    Dozens of staff members of DHS's Refugee, Asylum, and International Operations Directorate (RAIO) – which provides immigration and urgent humanitarian services to people fleeing oppression, persecution, or torture – were slated to fly out to posts in the Middle East and North Africa this week
    

    Hey, did you know that a major function of the Department of Homeland Security is to provide immigration services in foreign countries? Officials are understandably upset that they cannot complete their chartered mission and may even be redirected to what they would surely see as unrelated tasks, such as homeland security.

    Ruppel acknowledged that much of her staff had come to RAIO with the understanding that their work would largely involve granting asylum approval to those fleeing hardship around the world, and that Trump's order appeared to threaten that reality.
    

    Their reality is threatened. What about the reality of DHS being used to import people from suspect countries?

    Just look at the emotions that Donald Trump is bringing out in people.

    The press (opposition party) know that the anti-Trump forces have lost momentum with the wide approval of Trump’s extreme vetting executive order and Trump’s take-charge firing of Yates. As such, the press has to try to help propel the anti-Trump movement themselves, with nastier and nastier questions.

    It doesn’t matter. All that matters is that Team Trump has survived the first wave of the “coup attempt”, and surviving it only makes Trump stronger.

    Spicer is settling in and doing a good job now. He’s improved considerably, as expected. All that matters now is for Trump to get his cabinet in place and then prepare to go nuclear to get the SCOTUS justice(s) in.

    Everything else is details. The more the press and anti-Trumpers lose, the nastier you can expect the press to be at the daily briefings. So it’s actually a good sign if they’re being petty, because that means we’re winning bigly.

    We finally got our guy in the White House.

    Mr Spicer is out of depth and his delivery of the daily briefing is not at the level required by Prwsifent Trump at this critical time where the enemy is attempting to bring to a stop the progress President Trump is delivering on for the American people.

    We need a Tony Snow; a press secretary with the gravitas, personality, and skill set to represent President Trump in the most skillful manner possible. Mr Spicer is visibly and audibly not capable of being the individual we the People need and the President demands at such a critical moment in the administration.

    Finally, the daily briefings are the most public and visible battles the American people view on a daily basis and require the best fighter available who can represent the President and the American people in the war against the establishment and Fake News.

      I respectfully disagree. Tony Snow was good – maybe great – for the time he served. We live in different times and Sean Spicer is perfect for the job. No recent press secretary has faced such a hostile press and been charged with changing press room operations in such profound ways. I like him – tough, smart, and a quick study. Anyone with gravitas that the propaganda media respects is not likely to be on the Trump train.

      You use the term “critical time/moment” twice: “at this critical time where the enemy is attempting to bring to a stop the progress President Trump is delivering on for the American people.”
      It will alwasy be the case that the enemy tries to stop Pres. Trump. I don’t consider this a particularly critical time, and I don’t consider the press to be capable of stopping Pres. Trump. He is proving that every day. The press members are making fools of themselves, and Spicer is revealing that admirably, in my opinion.

    • Yes, Tony Snow was a good press secretary. But remember, he was also nationally known as a serous journalist/TV news person.before he ever took the press sec position.

      Mr. Spicer, in my opinion, is doing an outstanding job. He’s accurately and forcefully presents administration policy, and he doesn’t take any guff from the media morons who are asking questions.

      So I completely disagree with your assessment of Mr. Spicer’s job performance. I think President Trump’s choice continues his unbroken string of excellent appointments.

        Agree Sarge. I do think he improving as the days go by … and in time it has only been days. He is a very quick study and seems to be shutting the fools down. I would suggest he take one question only from each. Any follow up, if granted, should pertain to the initial question or move on to next questioner. I am confidant as we go on he will improve even more.

    • I like Stephen Miller, he doesn’t put up with any silliness and takes command of the pressers. I think Sundance has suggested Trump have TWO press secretaries, I think that would be a good idea. Have Sean some days and Miller other days or however that would work. Sean is warm and personable but appears to get distracted and is pushed into being defensive and emphatic at times when he need only say things once. He’s new at this so perhaps in time. He didn’t seem to be in charge of the reporters. People blame reporters but a good speaker takes charge no matter who the crowd.

    Over the years I’ve had a sense that most journalists are not particularly bright, often asking questions the answers for which are either widely known or simple to infer. The more I watch these daily media briefings I realize that, in fact, they either lack mental agility or are woefully dishonest. Mr. Spicer deserves a medal for his incredible patience with these buffoons.
