Or like he is portrayed on Saturday Night Live. I wish he could take that podium and shove one of those so called reporters real good, or take a water gun and give them heck with it.
Yeah, I was at my friend’s house Sat. night, and it was his tv and his remote. I will admit I did laugh, she is pretty good, and I really do like Sean Spicer. Maybe I just saw the humor in a different way since I think it would be great if he could act the half the way he is portrayed.

LOL. I think that metaphorically speaking he DOES hit them upside the head.
Their genius has no peers
Why don’t he just bar them from attendance. Their is no law that states he has to talk to the media. It should be on his terms or NO terms. Kick Acosta a** out right away.
I would test media applicants as a requirement to obtain credentials to attend WH press briefings. History, Civics, Current events, Ethics, Law, IQ. Then I would publish their test results on the net.
his navy discipline must be a huge help to him
My favorite viewing time of the day!! Go, Press Secretary Spicer!

Attorney General Sessions speaking now on ‘Immigration’ – Immigration Law
I wish he would just unleash on some of the ridiculous questions he gets!
He unleashed pretty good today on how the lefty media always rushes to judgment to blame hate crimes on the right.

LOL – ‘Hideout Cities’
Yep! and all who help them and then they commit a crime are accessories to the crime – in my opinion

“Hideout cities” sounds like something President Trump would say.
Yes, I agree rv – Katherine’s such a Trumper – now, she thinks like President Trump!
Small quibble, Jeff: please drop the word “immigrants” and use the proper term, Alien.
Also the same with judge for such. He.kept calling them undocumented immigrants.h
Correct immigrants are LEGAL. Aliens are not immigrants but ILLEGAL Aliens.
Your last sentence: Not quite.
An “alien” is simply someone who is in a country, yet not a citizen of that country. Thus there is most definitely such a thing as a LEGAL alien. These include both resident aliens (e.g., immigrants [legal ones, I shouldn’t have to say] who have not yet become citizens) and non-resident aliens (e.g., tourists, other visitors).
The illegal alien is the issue, but not all aliens are illegal.

That had to have been April Ryan yelling at Sessions about Gardner and something about white supremacists as he left the stage and exited the room.
A) Don’t resist arrest and fight policemen and policemen can not be responsible for pre existing health issues that make resisting arrest even more dangerous.
B) More whites killed by blacks than visa versa by far so really not smart to shine that light and demand answers there

Attorney General Sessions ignored her – and Sean took the ball – she fell flat on face –
No he didn’t ignore he, used her question as a opportunity to raise a very good point on how the left too often rushes to judgment and misplaces blame on the right.
Sorry, I read your post too quickly. Yes, Sessions did basically ignore her.
Good Point, Kit!
Shocking April Ryan back and back at promoting her own agenda…. ANNOYING!
No it’s not at all annoying. It’s an opportunity to learn how to deal with it.
Under budget ahead of schedule office
19 USC 507 provides for fines of up to $1000 for refusing to assist any Customs officer in making an arrest, seizure, etc. AG Sessions should start issuing these penalties every time a request for a detainer is refused. For state and local police, whose chiefs order officers to refuse cooperation, release illegals with no notice to ICE. and refuse access to jails/holding facilities, charge them with impeding Federal officers under18USC111,
Add two more zeros to that $1000 and make it really hurt.
While it may open up a ‘can of worms’ and swamp creatures would scream to the media as unfair, racist, or any other means of distorting the truth …
Go after their ‘Public Official Bonds. Public official bonds guarantee the honesty and faithful performance of those people who are elected or appointed to positions of public trust. One takes an elected officials surety bond, or even just a temporary injunction, until further investigation or court ruling – the person cannot stay within their position.
Deny every college loan.
Spicer won’t let them call it a “failure”. Beautiful reply. Talking about several failures of obamacre getting into law. how they wanted single payer but that failed. Quality answers.
I love watching and learning from him.
asking Spicer if President Trump had thought of reaching out to HIllary about getting health care done……!!!???!!! What? that is crazy. Her’s failed and she was defeated
Apparently, some still still think she is relevant or that her opinion matters – or even that of her sidekick – they both need orange jumpsuits – oh, and BTW – who cares?
Have you thought about contacting Hannibal Lecter about helping prepare dinner?
Really. A 2x presidential candidate loser who is under investigation.
O-care is not far enough- that’s why she lost.
Seriously that is his question – had to go back and find out who it was – think it was John Christopher – but not on my seating chart — did a quick search and from Talk-Media News – again there job is to cover the white house briefing – report the news, not fing make up the news … someone really needs to remind the media what their function is …
Oh man I needed that little pick me up. Cancel my espresso, I’m good 🙂
Was Obama ever asked if he had thought of reaching out to Bush for help about anything?
Better for Obama to blame Bush for eight years hoping to keep the dims in power. Always thought Bush should step up and say something in his defense, now we find out they’re all in the same club so macht nichts. Epic fail on both of them. Thankfully because of them, we now have President Trump.
Probably asked by someone who was about five years old when she bombed with that plan back in the ’90s – they all think that history begins with their appearance on the scene.
Hillary, cloaked in crushing defeat due to her towering incompetence, remains their Queen.
Anything to get her in the news and give her some relevance
Good Answer, Sean – go to the source – he is not going to comment on what Nunes said –
I honestly don’t think I’ve ever heard him give a bad answer. I love how he so quickly slices and dices what is worth answering from the red herring questions.
Oh, yes – me, too!
It’s amazing how many people came out to ‘pan’ Spicer when President Trump announced his selection as Press Secretary. (As if those people have any clue what they were talking about…as usual.)
Here is info Nunes is getting and Trump now has.The Obama criminal crew..Get something to drink hit link turn up and listen ,this is coming out and the drain on the swamp is about to be pulled..
Thanks, matrix – will catch this video later –
Listen to both part 1 and 2 this weekend. HOLLY SCHIFF! My hope is that there are enough people with a spine to bring this to a public hearing. My fear is that the IC will find a way to slide it under the rug again. There are so many people involved with knowledge of this that if it does come out, heads are going to roll.
No wonder they tried to smear him as a con man. It sounds like the CIA was quite pleased with his work until he showed a conscience.

Obama interfered with the British referendum.
Media and democrats had no problem with that
Roberts from Fox has a leaker source asking about surveillance reports
Here is another link…
Sean has the patience of a saint.. I’d lose it and kick over the podium, I’m sure.
Disbarment, prosecutions, and more for these foolish cities and their politicians…drain the swamp.
reporter asks what is in it for Ryan and Dems to work with POTUS. Why should they? Spicer – because its in the best interest of the American people to get things done. They ought to want to accomplish things for the country.
Me to Spicer – you would think that is why they are in DC but I am a bit cynical at this point
So Ryan should not work with Potus?
I take Spicer’s answers as explicit directions that President Trump is issuing to his supporters in order to push back against incoming.
Spicer says what Trump directs him to say, and what Trump wants his supporters to say in order to fight back. It’s about time Republican responses were as unified as the Democrat talking points.
When it comes down to it we should not fight back with what we want to say, (we need to button our lips sometimes), but what is wise and circumspect to say.
Thank you, KitKat! That applies everywhere!
And I might add… Just because you have an opinion, doesn’t mean you should inflict it on others, especially if it’s pointless grumbling based upon assumptions, rather than your conclusions after substantive analysis.
Sean, can you confirm that reporters are biased and crooked
Will someone with Twitter please blast the “race baiting” April Ryan with some real hate crime links instead of her cherry picked made up ones please? Why does Sean call on her every time?
Because he has to call on her – trying to think of a reason – but, am sure you can, John –
Sean should have thrown Antifa , Black Lives Matter, Louis Farrakhan, Black Panther Party etc back at April
I just asked racist April why she never covers black on white crimes & sent her this https://townhall.com/columnists/michaelbrown/2017/01/09/when-its-black-on-white-crime-the-left-goes-color-blind-n2268691
Rolling my eyes – shut up April, please – race and hate crimes – * Sigh * – people don’t listen – she just has to talk – same old stuff over and over – white supremacist – all the buzz words – no substance – Sean is handling her well – finally, it is over!
Sean letting her turn herself into background noise with no credibility by letting her talk.
Well, Fof – did not think of it that way – TeeHee!
Even the sight of April Ryan at the briefing makes me roll my eyes… Every time she is called upon –she preface by saying multiple or 2 questions, but then go’s on to ask more…. I don’t understand why she thinks or has been entitled to ask so many questions… especially when the nature of her questions have to do w/ race baited questions… not to mention her complete lack of respect and attitude on the daily…. today “don’t play” – ask her one question — act professional… or get the f out!
She is privileged, Nchad – thinks she represents a certain group – but, most of those I know don’t agree with her – I think she instigates the left agenda – but, hey – that’s just me –
Wait I though only white’s were privileged… lol – just kidding. I would also like to point out – after her last question (not even sure what she was talking about something to do w/ Ormarosa *sp* – she obviously didn’t get the answers she wanted from any of her questions, after Spicer moved on – she sat and talked to the girl sitting next her (think politico) the entire time the next questions was being asked… seriously no professionalism at all!
Well – there ya go – now you know – no professionalism is not one of her skill-sets – but, hey – there are so many numbnuts in that room – it is hard to tell them apart – imho
NChad, the first words out of April Ryan’s mouth were, “Sean, several topics…” Many in the room chuckled nervously or groaned. What about press *briefing* don’t you understand, April?
Yay! Finally over – why don’t we just have a White House Briefing and skip the questions – agree – Sean has the patience of a saint – over and over – they grasp at straws – no questions of any substance – asking him to comment on what other departments are doing – not his job – Geesh!
His answers are both a treasure trove of information, and also a guide as to how to handle the inane concerns that come up repeatedly in comments threads.
Exactomundo KitKat – well-phrased – are you Sean’s Secretary?
No just a fan. 🙂
I know – just pulling your good leg, Kit!
If you’re ever talking to Sean, put in a good word for me. 🙂
Highly unlikely, Kit – but, yes – I would certainly put in a good word for you – 🙂
Did anyone catch Sean answer (one of the last questions) that President Trump realized this wasn’t the bill (healthcare bill) that he wanted? Something to the effect to pull a bad deal is better than pushing it through. Indicating that President Trump ultimately didn’t want this particular bill? I’m not sure I understand how this all played out……?
Sounds like POTUS set SOH up. LOL!
One has to remember, it was President Trump that pushed for the vote – pass or fail.
It was Speaker Ryan, within his authority, to pull the vote. Why did he pull the vote?
Because Ryan knew it was a lose-lose for him and the UniParty if there was a vote. If it failed – ALL the ‘nays’ on the Republican side were on record or if enough ‘yeas’ and the Stage 1 passed – it put Obamacare into the hands of Team Trump and HHS Sec Dr Price and they would have stripped Obamacare of all the legislation that the UniParty wants to keep. The successful implementation of Stage 2, by Team Trump, would have put the whole UniParty on notice and none of them could voted against Stage 3.
Speaker Ryan took the road of least resistance and least sunshine that allows them to keep the kabuki theater of ‘we gave it our best try’ narrative.
No. He pulled back because Trump didn’t want to negotiate with the FC any more because a few of them were playing games, continuing to ask for more and more even after they’d been given several concessions. Spicer was very clear about that on Friday.
This is the best assessment of what really went own last Friday with the healthcare issue.
Trump had backed Ryan into a corner with the call for a vote, up or down, and the last thing the Uniparty wants is to have ObamaCare fully in the hands of the Trump administration.
I think Trump sees through the kabuki theater, and will back the Uniparty into a harder corner when the healthcare issue comes back around. Trump will get what he wants.
He was not saying it was a bad deal.
What he was referring to were the couple of whiny babies from the FC who were negotiating in bad faith. They had already been given several concessions, but they kept coming back. When Trump realized they were playing, not negotiating, he cut the negotiations short.
Yes. He stated POTUS felt this ‘deal’ wasn’t what he had promised so better to walk away
This is what I heard and felt it was new information. All prior comments seemed to suggest that President Trump supported the bill.
Love that Spicer calls out the rush to judgement that hate crimes are from the right. And he is saying we need to hold accountable those who say this and then are proved wrong and how they don’t come back to balance that coverage
I was a little late on the briefing today , but now have finished it – I WOULD LOVE to announce the big loser today as April Ryan – but have to go with the most ridiculous and annoying questions to John Christopher and his questions on whether the President had thoughts of reaching out to Hillary about getting health care done – CONGRATS LOSER!
I am so tired of seeing one state, city and university after another declaring allegiance to the illegals.
Its time to initiate e-verify for jobs and governmental benefits.
A few years back I was thinking that when Illegals are caught and deported, the assets they earned while in America illegally should be confiscated to pay for any expenses the government incurs to ship them back from where they came.
I had to go down to the local SS office at the end of last month. The wait was about 45 mins and during that time, I watched a big screen slide show about benefits in a dozen different languages. SS is suppose to be for citizens and to be a citizen, you should have a grasp of the English language. Yet, the message was interpreters were available. There was also a notice that if you had been flagged by e-verify, they would take care of it for you. Anybody have any idea what that means?
Only in America does one have to push 1 to get their concerns on the phone answered in English.
All those ‘family reunifications’ for legal immigrants who become citizens bring the parents over and the parents then get SS, iirc. Think that was a Carter thing.
Honestly… I don’t know how Sean does this everyday. I really don’t. I am almost unconscious from slamming my head on the desk just listening to this …I would be screaming “Would you 97th term infants please shut up and listen…Pay attention…. Stop making me repeat myself..and for the eternal record if ONE more person in this room says RUUUUSSSSIIIAAAA/Election/SPY/TRUMP COLLUSION, when you know damn well Ruuuuuuussssssssiiiiaaaa is a NON issue and never was, I am going to make you drink bleach. Are there ANY more additional questions “? But that’s me…..; )
He’s an active church-goer, so maybe religion is what helps him maintain his poise. Plus the discipline he learned in the navy.
Well I go to church as well, since I was 7 and was raised as a military brat ; ) but these people are enough to make a saint swear….
IKR, SayIt? I wonder if eyes eventually fall out of their sockets with protracted eye-rolling… I’ll let you know… 🙄
All day, including during this press conference, I have been hearing about Nunes visiting the White House on Friday in relation to this intelligence tip in the news. I am surprised that no one remembers that Comey was spotted at the White House Friday
Could it be???
Did anyone catch Spicer say today that the Trump Administration has received a lot of phone calls since Friday afternoon from both sides of the aisle who are willing to work on Healthcare with them. He said we are working to get to the 218 number that is needed to pass it. He also mentioned that they learned a lot over this debacle, and that Trump learned that there are some people he thought he could count on that he can’t. He also said that Price was on Capitol Hill today working on it. It seems to me that they are working behind the scenes on the Healthcare bill and that Trump is not going to count on the GOP to get it done. He is taking the bull by the horns and working on the Bill to see that it passes with both GOP and Dem votes.
All good points, WTP2016, and I think we’re in for a pleasant surprise, to put it mildly. Lessons learned, and foundations laid, from the AHCA debacle-wannabe, will permeate and benefit multiple issues across the board. Much to be gained; don’t blink or you’ll miss it.
