    Sean would have been in a friendlier environment in Raqqa than dealing with these people

    I haven’t watched. But by the comments above, it doesn’t sound like it went well. Should I watch it? I don’t want to get irritated.

    For those of us “taking names” it would be helpful if, when Sean calls on a reporter, he says the reporter’s name and who the reporter works for.

  5. Media and dems are shook big time that Trump is calling out their puppet judges.

    Spicer was really good about criticism of judges when he asked where MSM was when Obama critized judges at State Of The Union. We know where they were. In the tank(for him).

      I agree Dean. I was listening to these insufferable presstitutes and thinking, why no one mentions Obomb criticizing judges at the State of the Union and there was Spicer repeating what I was thinking. I said a loud BAM when he did, then turned around to see if I scared my cat.

    Found Roosevelt’s some of criticisms of the Supreme Court at Smithsonian website (surely they will be taking it down soon):

    “The Tipaldo ruling persuaded Roosevelt that he had to act, and act quickly, to curb the court. As he told the press, the court had created a “ ‘no-man’s-land’ where no Government— State or Federal—can function.” He had been waiting patiently for popular dissatisfaction with the court to mount; now anger at the Tipaldo decision surged.”

    “…but as the evening drew to a close, Idaho’s senator William Borah, sensing something as he saw the president chatting with two of the justices, remarked: “That reminds me of the Roman Emperor who looked around his dinner table and began to laugh when he thought how many of those heads would be rolling on the morrow.” [Describing Roosvelt’s WH intimidation]

    “Three days later, on February 5, 1937, Roosevelt shocked Congress, his closest advisers and the country by unleashing a thunderbolt. He asked Congress to empower him to appoint an additional justice for any member of the court over age 70 who did not retire”

    Trump needs to throw this back at the liberal savages. Kelly Anne, are you reading???

    How many different ways can 4 or 5 ‘journalists’ ask the same question? So irritating! A psychological mindtrap.. looking for their required answer. Sean Spicer is more intelligent than that whole little collective of ‘gotcha!’. Mr. Spicer gave them the only answer he had.. the right and honest one. Let’s face it, truth really rubs these talking point regurgitaters wrong. They can’t comprehend it!!
    I’d have been pulling passes on the third go round… ridiculous!

    I am really, really hoping that Sean Spicer checks in on Conservative Treehouse once in a while. If he does, I hope he would read this post and politely use this response the next time a rude “splodey head” berates him about the President’s travel moratorium from terrorist countries:
    Would you rather have President Trump do what FDR did — incarcerate American Muslims in concentration camps like President Roosevelt did to 120,000 Japanese Americans during WW2?
    I know it would never happen, but it is fun just to imagine it. 😎 😎

    I was glad that when they asked about Guadalupe Garcia, that he just referred them to ICE, and cut them off. I’m really surprised there weren’t “spontaneous protests” all over the place, guess it’s too cold for the snowflakes . Anyway, hopefully she’s already out of the country.

      According to the article that just popped up on truthfeed, she was in Mexico as of this morning. Of course, until we get the wall who knows how long she’ll stay there. At least ICE, Customs, and the other people at the front are now empowered to do their jobs.

      Side note, I wonder how many of the protestors that were arrested for impeding the process will also get deported. That will put a dent in the number of protestors sticking their heads above the parapets.

          My understanding is her charges date back further and already had her days in court , appeals, etc. Was suppose to be deported 2013 , but wasn’t because O changed guidelines of deportations.

      • I can’t believe some one is finally enforcing the laws against illegals. I wish they would pick up that California state legislature who is an illegal and even admitted his whole family has fake social security numbers. Would love to see him, and his lovely family, deported.

          Can you even believe the guts of that guy? What was his name, DeLeon or something? He actually jumped up on his imaginary soapbox exclaiming, ” Half Of My Family Are Here Illegally And Have Fake ID’s”. Arrest him for harboring fugitives and deport them all.

    I love the part around the 25:00 mark where the reporter whines about what Trump does and doesn’t tweet about and Sean says, I stood here and addressed this with you and you think he didn’t address the issue?” And the reporter’s like, “but he didn’t tweet about it!” And Sean is incredulous and says, “you’re equating what I do here with a tweet? This is the silliest thing I’ve ever heard.” And he moves on. There are so many issues they can ask about but they want to analyze Trump’s tweeting habits!

    I kind of feel sorry for P.S. Spicer having to deal with this press posse. They are more concerned about getting a “gotcha” moment than they are in relaying news to the public.

    After watching most of the briefing today, I’ve decided the media needs to be put on a 30 day time out to reevaluate their behavior not only in briefings but in general. Trump and his admin can put out whatever they need to on Twitter and Facebook. That way…no more fake news.

      Just a note that Trump never said this was going to happen. One of the big issues is not just fake news from the left but also the right. A lot of the talking heads on the right keep piling on with what they “think” Trump will do. Newt is a classic example of this and Trump had to call him out twice.

      It’s been happening gradually. They have joked about getting a bigger room for including more people, but one of the first changes has been inviting reporters from out of town via Skype.

      So did I. It’s clearly not happening.

      Unfortunately, it seems to be “settling in” to an adversarial proceeding where the press have all the freedom they need to gang up on Spicer. Sean needs to regain control of the proceedings.

    It is a BIG Mistake to have a press briefing everyday. It doesn’t help Trump or us. The FAKE MSM twist everything, and it’s a hostile group that are trying to trip him up.

    Hold press briefing once a week or once a month. Let Trump tweet what he wants us to know, or have Daily Sheet of what Trump did the last 24 hours.

    Enough with feeding the FAKE news groups a sound bite that will be twisted.

    Trump Team should be able to come up with different way to present their side and counter FAKE NEWS!

    Trump Team should just stop going on CNN and other fake news sites, and put out info in a way that states their side.

      I do appreciate the first part of the press briefing where Sean reads a report. It’s refreshing to hear what’s going on without having to peel away bias and stupid remarks, just get a report with lots of information delivered directly and succinctly.

      As for the part where the reporters ask questions, yeah, nix that.

        Maybe he needs to begin to treat them like children in an old-school classroom.

        Stand, tell your name. Ask one question. Sit.

        Other than that tidbit:

        Cut off that microphone, and see which next politely-raised hand you will call upon.

        Rudeness not tolerated at all. When he has to close them down, their mikes get cut.

        When the press briefing is finished, all mikes shut off immediately.

        No more screaming out questions as he leaves the room like a bunch of unruly brats.

      I liked the squirt rifle idea from saturday night live. Have him blast the trouble-makers. Would be fun.

      Or have the seated give a big shock if someone acts up.

      Of course Trump would approve but his Team would tell him not to do it. 🙂

    I am sorry once again while sitting through these conferences of the questions and what must be the mental capacity of the press core! It is like a tea and crumpet gathering at a Payton Place soap opera!
    Mr. Spicer has shown very, very much patience in dealing with the tripe in the audience! There were very few, you could count them on both fingers, questions that had substance!
    IMHO, Mr. Spiders reply to all I heard should be, you are out of line, that does not deserve a response and as of tomorrow you, you, you, and you will not be present.
    We will call you, do not call here!

      It’s like they’re not listening. Sean has to tell them the same thing every single day and they still ask him about the same things. The press corps have a very tiny mental capacity!

        When they do that he needs to say “I’ve answered that already. Next.”

        And if they won’t shut up and keep shouting it out, warn them once, then have them removed.

    Spicer needs to quickly adopt sundance’s list of suggestions, ESPECIALLY the one-question rule.

    He’s done a good job, but is losing control of the briefing. He needs to read the riot act to these clowns and rein them in.
