    Knocked it out of the park. In particular, shaming the “legacy” media regarding the weekend raid that resulted in one of own making the ultimate sacrifice.

    Skype seats were great as well. I wonder if Zucker at CNN still feels as cocky as he did last week when he threatened POTUS with “he needs us, and we have all the power.”

      Yes! Nice! Very efficient – all the media is sitting right there. They have no grounds to say they aren’t getting the info. Their own actions will separate the media sheep who report, from the goats who rumor-monger.

    What type of response where they hoping to get about the SEAL that was killed in the attack? It was an inappropriate question. However by doing so, it allows Americans to see how difficult it is for our President and his staff. It also highlights the fact that our President immediately contacted the family and we may never ever know what else he or his family may do for the 3 kids. For such a tragedy, our President will garner even more respect from the American people.

    Sean Spicer should never be attacked on this board again! That was not an act. That was genuine and real!

  4. 4 Skype questions today. One from Lars Larson.

    The press room briefing transformation is officially underway. Can’t wait to see how it unfolds.

        The FakeStream Media (FSM) will say that the Trump Admin is only allowing friendly people use the skype, and are not real media. Also that the skypers are giving the questions ahead of time to the Press Secretary. You know like the DemonRATS do.

        • Actually, that is an incorrect guess, Wookiebush. They may not be giving the questions to the PS ahead of time. I know that last night around midnight, Lars was asking some the head of the Wash State Repub Party what question she would be interested in heading asked. She declined to answer, apparently disappointing Lars mightily.

          But I loved his question anyway! This is a vital issue to us out here! As a Pacific Northwesterner in a deeply Blue state, I feel quite invisible!

          Watch these MSM run for their skype.
          They’ve hunkered down like old barnacles in the center pit of seats, just a voice somewhere in a sea of grumpy faces. The skype reporters visual dominated the room, their TV station’s logo filling up the background, nice colors, great picture displayed right next to Sean Spicer, Everyone could hear their name and station and they got way more seconds for everyone else to look at them smiling and all relaxed (not squished in rows of chairs).
          These are prima donnas. they didn’t miss what just happened.

      I really like the use of Skype in these briefings in order to address regional concerns. We never would have heard a question about the forestry practices the national media.

        I agree, I love the Skype questions. They have totally different concerns than the DC troop. The Skypers need to learn to say both their questions up front if they want to get two in 🙂


  5. By officially putting Iran on notice, what does this mean and what is the next phase with Iran? Anyone?


  6. Nationalist says:

    Skype questions are the future …and the future is now. There is absolutely no need for the legacy DC media whores at all. Anybody reporting from anywhere can have direct access to the Whitehouse press secretary. Heh heh. 😉

      furtive, this according to the NY Post:

      White House freezes out CNN

      CNN, which President Trump has accused of reporting “fake news,” is getting frozen out of appearances by members of the administration.

      “We’re sending surrogates to places where we think it makes sense to promote our agenda,” a White House official told Politico, adding the ban is not permanent.

      But a CNN reporter had a different take on the snub.

      “They’re trying to cull CNN from the herd,” the person told the website.

      White House spokesman Sean Spicer denied that CNN was being ignored, saying he’s called on the news network’s reporters at press briefings.

      But he said it’s at his discretion.

      “I’m not going to sit around and engage with people who have no desire to actually get something right,” he said during an event at George Washington University this week.

      Trump administration officials have been conspicuously absent on CNN since the middle of January while appearing on many other news shows.

      The president and CNN reporter Jim Acosta squabbled during a news conference last month about an unsubstantiated report on Trump’s relationship with Russia that the network and other media outlets reported on.

      Trump refused to acknowledge a question from Acosta, saying, “Not you. Your organization is terrible.”

      Acosta said he should get a question since his news outlet was being attacked by Trump.

      The president responded: “I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news.”

    Don’t call on Kristen for at least six months, Sean. Her question was impertinent and slanted. I she cannot ask questions based on the very important things that are happening, there is a room full of people who might do so.

      Agree, KBR. There is a difference between being assertive and being obnoxious. Professionals are unbiased and assertive when necessary; leftist tools are rude, narcissistic and inflammatory.

      Skype was great – maybe we should have everyone “phone it in” and save taxpayers the money it takes to run and maintain these things.

      Agree, KBR.
      Sean should get a little tougher with the presstitutes:
      Hypothetical question: “No, I won’t answer hypotheticals. Next person”

      Fake news, distorted reporting: “Sorry, you are quoting false reporting/the premise of your question is incorrect. Next person”

      And then blacklist them for a month.
      One by one, put those presstitutes in their place. I noticed that Mara Liasson semi behaved herself today.

Making the press room professionally dressed again!

    I really enjoyed the part where Sean was talking about President Trump’s meeting today with the Harley Davidson executives. Thousands of jobs to be created producing motorcycles after our president said the savings from eliminating most of the State Department jobs will be used to give a free Harley to every middle class American taxpayer! …What? Spicer didn’t say that? I could’ve sworn I heard that.

    I’m glad CTH has today offered the daily press briefing — I checked earlier, at about the time is was due to begin, and saw no posting of it so had to resort to youtube to be certain I did not miss it in real time.
    I’d rather watch it here.
    I hope these WH press briefings will be offered to us daily; if you must know, since we no longer have almost daily rallies, this is the way I keep up with the news and satisfy my hunger for words directly from the horse’s mouth, so to speak.

    When we’re awash in chronic fake news and the glorification of paid agitators by a hostile press, I cleanse my mind with the comforting words which set the record straight.

    Only thing I would change is to have Sean slow down a little. He has said in other press briefings that he’ll stay as long as he needs so he doesn’t need to rush through every response.


  19. WeThePeople2017 says:

    This is a very draining job. I hope that Spicer does not get burned out too quickly. It takes a lot of energy out of you, and understandably so. I hope that he gets needed breaks from time to time and lets his Asst., S. Huckabee fill in for him.

  22. Tonawanda says:

    Spicer needs to slow down, as folks have said. Stop the speed.

    He also needs to say he is not answering a question when he is not answering a question. Pretending to answer the question is bogus (as he did when he was asked when sanctuary cities would end).

    That said, Sean is great.


  23. GForce says:

    Love you Sean, but for goodness sakes take a breath and slow down a bit. You ciearly have a wealth of knowledge to share and lots on your plate; try dishing up smaller more carefully metered responses so the listener can follow you. Love the Skype!


  24. Tonawanda says:

    Spicer lied when he said it was not about the worship of the sociopath, but the “radicalization” of the worship of the sociopath.

    This is a serious, consequential lie, and the prudential implications of the question can be answered without lying.


  25. remuda2016 says:

    Well…I guess the fact that Donald has brought Sean to the podium every day is a phenom. He has the ‘press’ in there daily. Anyone remember the prior nominal pressers of O? Everyone has his right to opine, but I like the intensity and breadth of info. But then, my experience is limited, so…what do I know…only what I see…and like. Remember, these are within the “Honeymoon” phase that is a minefield…or better…briarpatch…and there is much rapid-fire activity behind the “Regulator Desk” to engage and disperse,,,as any PAO or PIO recognizes. It’s all good to this old NFO.
