    • Kristin is quite annoying. Constantly interrupting Sean while he’s trying to answer and talks over him. He has a lot of patience. I would lose it and tell her to shut it until I’m finished talking.

      “SPICED” LOL!

      Please make another of these for that Mr. Bean look-a-like journalist @22.17 who asked: “Is it the President’s intent or desire…that people who are here illegally, for something as simple as a traffic violation, that those people would be subject to deportation. Yes or No”
      Spicer: “…By the very nature of you not being legal, you can be subject to deportation. That’s by definition. Being in this country is a Privilege not a Right if you are a visitor.”

    April Ryan seemed to be confused about President Trump’s position on this issue during the campaign. He has said from the beginning it should be left up to the states. Below is an article from 5/16. President Trump’s emphasis on law v. activism is confusing to many Dems! This issue was not handled according to the rules and laws during Obama’s administration (not surprisingly) and President Trump is reinstating the rule of law and is standing by his campaign statements.

    Then April shuts down other reporters to ask a 2nd question. She is a real piece of work.

    Very Thankful for the Skype Reporters, the on-site MSM dwell on such narrow topics each briefing.

    Would love to have names of the ones repeatedly doing the left agenda questions… like the canary website.

    I am just now watching this and while I knew the transgender bathroom issue was discussed in this press conference I am getting really tired of how much time these old media employees spent on this! So many other important issues and this is their focus?

      It was tragic to watch.

      All the ‘wizards of smart’, assembled in one place, meeting their destinies, fulfilling their reasons for living, and the only thing they could come up with was potty talk.

      My granddaughter could have come up with better questions than they did…..and she’s five.

        Spicer ought to consider setting a time limit, a strict one. The presser ought to have a definite start, stop time. If there’s a delay in getting started, in his end, indicate a time limit. When it’s reached, leave without hesitation even if one of them is in mid-sentence.

        Another suggestion, Spicer ought to present a small list of topics. These and only these would he take questions concerning. The first time there’s an infraction remind them of the policy. The second time the individual is escorted from the room. The emphasis ought to be on what the people what to hear.

        If Spicer thinks the day’s topics have been adequately covered, then he could move to other topics. Otherwise, he might indicate they could submit written questions which might be briefly addressed at the next presser.

          One question, no follow up.
          If they misbehave, credentials pulled for a year.
          Skype gets six posts at least. Big country. Lots of intelligent people have questions. Doesn’t have to be just “press”.
          I”m waiting for Alex Jones or Paul Joseph Watson to ask a question.
          Why not Tammy Bruce?

          These WH jerks have no standing. The country hates them.
          Get them out. Keep their coats.

          Mount a water gun on the podium. Let Sean soak them when they repeat a topic.

    Watched the whole press briefing and came away with one thought. And these idiot ‘narrative engineers’ from the MSM swamp, show that they must have taken Al Gore’s course, while he was a ‘professor’ at the Columbia School for Journalism. They ignorantly show their collective narrative that will be broadcast on all their channels tonight. The swamp monster narrative engineers focused on two items – transgender bathrooms and Russia ….

    Fortunately, the Trump Admin has brought in many outside the NYC / Wash DC media beltway real journalist and we got questions on Solicitor General appointments, Medical marijuana, Immigration policy, Russia cooperation, Nuclear weapons negotiations, etc. – to name a few.

    While the federal prohibition of marijuana may be another overuse of the Commerce Clause, that battle was lost with Gonzales V Raich. If people want the federal prohibition of recreational marijuana lifted, they should lobby their congresspeople. Until then it’s the law. For the president to be consistent, he has to enforce federal laws on marijuana as much as he’s enforcing the existing immigration laws.

    • “For the president to be consistent, he has to enforce federal laws on marijuana as much as he’s enforcing the existing immigration laws.”

      LOL!

      “The president has said time and again that the decision about marijuana needs to be left to the states,” U.S. Rep. Jared Polis, a Boulder Democrat, said in a statement about Spicer’s comments. “Now either the president is flip-flopping or his staff is, once again, speaking out of turn. Either way, these comments leave doubt and uncertainty for the marijuana industry, stifling job growth in my state.”

      Sean Spicer shouldn’t attempt to elucidate positions that aren’t firm or fully developed at this point in time.

      Being the “law and order” president doesn’t mean that Spicer should fling around the fact that the Department of Justice exists and may come after Americans for smoking a joint.
      Get real. Is Sean going to sick the feds on the local pubs around D.C. where the fog of marijuana is thick? My bet is that he won’t.

      American citizens have had enough THREATS from the usurper to last us about a decade. Don’t threaten Americans – get after those illegal aliens who’ve decimated this country and GET TOUGH with Mexico.

      “Sixty percent of Americans surveyed by the Gallup Poll last year said they favor outright legalization, up from 35% in 2005.”

      “The results of the election tell us being a Republican and a marijuana legalization advocate are no longer mutually exclusive, if the labels ever were to begin with.”

      Getting it right on this issue is a big deal. (and I don’t care what Jeff Sessions’ personal opinion is on it. – or the consensus of the cabinet, for that matter.) It’s not what Trump said when he ran and he needs to be consistent.

        Enforcing the law is being consistent. Either make it legal or take these states down. How do you talk smack about cartels bringing drugs across the border while you are letting Colorado grow and sell an illegal substance? What message are you sending to our youth? Can’t have it both ways. I hope PT does the right thing here.

  11. Sean continues to get better, but he still speaks too fast and stumbles a lot.

    Maybe he should cut back on the coffee until AFTER he has done his presser.

    • I wouldn’t post this – 99% sure it’s not true. White House duty is assigned to Marine’s serving at the 8th & I Barracks – I’m pretty sure there aren’t even 13,000 Marine’s serving there & they don’t just get to put in for a job transfer. Besides, it’s not that great of a gig no matter how much they love this president. Marine’s are happiest when they’re in the fight, down & dirty – they actually hate all the dress blues stuff -they’d rather be blowing things up somewhere.
