    Why do I watch these stupid idiotic press briefings?

    I learn absolutely nothing as a result, I observe the libtard pressers with disdain and think less of myself for having done so. I guess it is a reminder we Americans has to go through to remain a free America.

    • This has been the worst presser yet. The press has a new patron saint, the despicable, highly partisan, Sally Yates and they are slavering while attempting to use her as a battering ram. Full ignorance & partisanship on display. Seasoned liberally with reexamination of Mike Flynn ignoring all the facts and maximum spin. Like a feeding frenzy. I have to give Sean Spicer kudos but its neither fun to watch or educational. The MSM press is the WORST!

      i would differ, and say that it’s a stark reminder of exactly the opposite – that we remain ENSLAVED by the relentless mind control and propaganda pumped at us 24/7/365 by the deep state MSM in behalf of their their globalist, psychopath masters

    Every news channel has been killing the last 30 minutes with ‘nothing’ (not that it’s different from every day) because they were sure Spicey was gonna do their job for them. Fox is talking ‘who leaked?’ and MSNBC and CNN are talking “Flynn was on a call to Russia 5 minutes after Yates told them he should be fired”. Our government and media are perhaps beyond redemption. If there’s any hope, it lies within POTUS Trump.

      • I feel bad we didn’t do it sooner, we meant to, the acct is in hubbies name so I figured they wouldn’t talk to me, he has been ridiculously busy with work and it was low on the fires that needed putting out.

        Finally I just wanted it done, called, they asked to talk to him to confirm they could talk to me, put them on hold, boom boom, done and away I went with the joy of cancelling. As SD has always taught us be polite in your cold anger always….which I was.

        When she thanked me for being a long time subscriber I just replied, you”re welcome….silence, crickets…. When we got down to nuts and bolts it was hysterical her reaction when I told her I know longer wanted to support fake news, their socialist agenda and all the cr@p on tv that does the same. Back when I would watch shows they couldn’t help their virtue signaling, when they did I just stopped watching the shows until all I watched was Fixer Upper for good clean American family fun, but we have sling and will see if can watch on that or just watch on their webpage…..Sorry gone on to long but it just feels AWESOME ;))

              My thinking became clearer and the world became quieter.

              The benefits are so hard to list here because we all respond differently.

    Folks as promised, I have been checking in on articles discussing Obamacare and where it stands at this point. Our president hold ALL the cards and will have this bomb held over the head of the Senate. This will expedite them in getting something done and voted on. All the garbage you are hearing about will it pass the Senate, Will it stay for years in the committee to merge the 2 bills is absolute NOISE. They know our President means what he says that the federal government will not pay the subsidy payments in 2018.

    From the articles below:

    WASHINGTON — Insurance companies offering individual health care plans in D.C. want to increase premiums from 13 percent to nearly 40 percent on average.

    http://wtop.com/business-finance/2017/05/health-insurance-companies-seek-rate-hikes-40-percent-dc/

    Ten health insurers are seeking rate increases for next year (CT) averaging 15.2 percent to 33.8 percent for individual plans. The increases for premium plans range from 19 percent to 52 percent.

    Sen. Chris Murphy said Trump “won’t commit to keeping the Affordable Care Act operating for more than one month at a time” and Sen. Richard Blumenthal said “reckless efforts by the GOP to dismantle the Affordable Care Act are costing consumers.”

    http://www.courant.com/business/hc-health-insurance-increases-20170508-story.html

    Patients in Maryland looking for insurance in 2018 may have bigger bills than they bargained for. The health insurance exchange rates for individual and group plans in the state have risen by up to 58 percent as payers try to cope with uncertainty, payers reported.

    https://healthpayerintelligence.com/news/md-health-insurance-exchange-rates-up-double-digits-for-2018

    He added that these rate increases assume that the Trump administration will continue to make the cost sharing subsidy payments. If they do not, the rates would be 10 percent to 15 percent higher.

    The Trump administration hasn’t helped the market’s stability. President Trump has threatened to withhold $7 billion in annual out-of-pocket subsidies for the poorest exchange participants and the Trump administration has effectively directed the IRS not to enforce the individual mandate.

    http://www.cnbc.com/2017/05/09/obamacare-insurers-jacking-up-rates-commentary.html

    Iowa could be on the leading edge of a national calamity. Cynthia Cox, a vice president for the Kaiser Family Foundation, said Iowa is the first state to face the likelihood of having no individual insurance carriers in most counties.

    In Tennessee, 16 of 95 counties are without a carrier for 2018, she said. Several other states have just one carrier left, so they could quickly be in the same boat as Iowa.

    http://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/news/health/2017/05/04/72-000-iowans-fear-theyll-lose-insurance-congress-tries-overhaul-obamacare/310390001/

    The Colorado Division of Insurance has announced that insurers won’t have to submit drafts of their next-year plans until June 19. The division will review those plans preliminarily, then release them on July 14 to the public for comment. The public will have until August to offer opinions on the plans, which will be approved by early fall.

    Insurers normally have to submit plans by mid-May, with other deadlines coming earlier as well. But, as Congress continues to debate the American Health Care Act and with lingering uncertainty about whether the White House will continue funding key subsidies, this year is a special case.

              I’m not surprise they’re all libs, but I do wonder what happened to the Skype or FaceTime thing with outlets that can’t attend the briefings. Do they still show up? (I almost never watch, and when I do, I can only do it for a minute or two before I start screaming like a harpy.) Totally agree Sean should just read his little statement and leave the dang room. Let them all marinate in their stupidity without him. If they don’t want to print what he says, they can just make up some more fake news to release.

    After being hammered by press, Spicer finally says White House doesn’t necessarily agree with the account given by Yates, only the timeline. Also, if she was so clear about her purpose in her 1st meeting, why was she invited back for a 2nd meeting to explain her purpose for notifying WH? Very interesting how WH perceives the situation versus what we heard yesterday. Just because we heard a “story” yesterday doesn’t necessarily mean that’s what really happened as the MSM would have us believe.

    Ugh. I don’t watch these things often…and that’s a good thing for my blood pressure and my general state of well-being. But I watched this one–much to my chagrin.

    Every single ‘question’ posed by the jackals in the leftist media can be boiled down to this:

    “Sean, it’s widely agreed upon that we all despise this president and everything he stands for. We’re going to find fault with literally every action he takes, no matter what. Given that fact, don’t you think it’s time that this president resign the office and hand the mantel of leadership over to our choice, Hillary Clinton?”

    “No.”

    “Sean, to follow up on that last question. You’ve answered it 10 times already, but I’m going to put yet another spin on it, so I can sound ‘erudite’ and ‘informed’. Can you say when the president will be stepping down; and a second question: When he steps down, will the president be apologizing to liberals for even running for office in the first place?”

    Sean Spicer has far more tolerance than I do.

        The First Rule of Comedy is that the joke must ring true if it is to be seen as ‘funny’.

        While humorous on its face, this situation is just sad. The insufferable left-wing press’ personal political preferences color EVERYTHING they do and say; nothing else matters.

        Having lived through Helen Thomas and Sam Donaldson during the Reagan era, I can tell you that this won’t change. They’re going to hate, and hate, and hate, and hate some more, throughout the entirety of President Trump’s term of office.

    The ‘push ‘n pull’ of these pressers only bring the ‘swamp’ muck to the surface. As time goes, the truth will always come out (except for JFK). We only need patience and persistence as the ‘media’ (misnomer) exposes its agenda and the web filters the facts while the dust settles. We have seen the priorities shift daily with the empty questions that Sean is forced to answer…mostly with ‘yes’ or ‘no’…as he always is in control…like “The Boss”…!

    These things need a new way to go! The SOP seems insane, with Spicer facing down and reading from notes always, and the front row with possibly the next two rows being the ONLY seats from which he regularly recognises any questions. Then the question asking- person is rarely audible or named, and as in this clip with front row recognised face (John King?), they carry on lengthy two-party conversations. Seems outrageously wrong to do this to a ROOM FULL of many other reporters who never seem to be able to hear or interrupt or ask any other pertinent or related questions. Seems like it should be a much more open format than these wholesale face -time opportunities for Spicer plus the recognizable face in the front row. Seems too exclusive!

    Sean Spicer has tremendous patience with these idiots. I try to listen in most of the time, just for support. I don’t think I’ve heard more than 5 or 10 substantive questions since January — it kind of calls into question why exactly these briefings need to permit questions.

    But as we know, President Trump is playing more than fair and above-board, even with incredibly rude press people taking up time and space in our White House.

    For General Flynn, I hope he and his family are able to see past the press bashing, and that there will be a day soon where he is treated with far more respect.

    President Trump also has his lawyer writing a letter to indicate that he had no business interests in Russia, to satisfy the comment from Lindsay Graham. That shut the press up.

    I haven’t listened to a press conference for awhile, and a few things leapt out at me. First, Sean has lost the tightness. He is allowing long winded questions, he is allowing more than two questions, he is allowing argumentative questions, he is allowing them to get away with contemptuous statements, there are no skype questions. I hope he is not losing his touch, to me he looked tired and off his game. His voice too soft instead of authoritative.

    Wonder if Spicer knew the Comey firing was in the offing? It was already in the works by then in order for the letter to be hand delivered in LA, right? He started off by saying that he was sorry he was late, “just wrapping up some business”. Funny to think that they were on yesterday’s Dem talking points and today’s story was already unfolding but they were clueless.

    Thanks for all of the comments, esp. the warning about the focus on Flynn. I listened to Spicer’s read out and then skipped around the questions only to land on Flynn questions. Will just read the transcript instead.

    My favorite thing in today’s press conference was Spicer labeling a question “such a Washington question”. Yes, so many of their questions are from inside the DC/media/Dem bubble!

    I started listening to Spicer not too long ago but I note how he controls the MSM and even controls outright laughter at their questions and continually asking the same old, same old. I also like it when an appointee comes into speak about what they are doing. In any case, we are getting real firsthand information for the first time in decades. I also note the respect with which the press hold for Spicer and how he manages any pitfalls because they are trying to gainsay him and/or Trump. What a relief after that Josh character for Obama. I am so glad we can tune into these press meetings when we have time. Good going Spicer and thank you Mr. President for the great people you have chosen to work with you.
