    ( Raising hand) I have a question— why have I not see ONE media source with a microphone in their hand asking Obama of Hillary— Why did you say you had no communication with the FBI when you clearly did through surrogates. It is reported that you ” wanted to know everything” as stated by Page. Was she lying or were you ?

    Good question. I understand we must continually question the media whom are more interested in presenting a narrative than reporting the news…

    Based on the Tabloid reporting this morning on CNN and NBC this morning, expect allot of questions on Bob Porters ouster and General Kelly’s role. For nearly the entire morning, this was the topic of discussion, with other #METOO, Olympic Team abuse and other horror stories mixed in for god measure. It is obvious General Kelly’s removal is the objective, remove strength from Trump’s team as well as isolate him.

    I read with interest that the LA Times and the San Diego Union-Tribune sold to Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong a billionaire that is rumored to be friendly with Trump. If true, it may be the start of a media change. Also, Trump is considering him for NIH director. Soon-Shiong has been quoted that he wants to “fix” healthcare…https://www.statnews.com/2016/11/21/trump-soon-shiong/

      To be fair, she is used to dealing with Democrats who lie and parse. Who would think that one would need to clarify what the meaning of “is” is?!

      I think her question is an equal reflection on her as it is on the lying Democrats she and the rest of us have had to deal with.

      Let these morons do what they do best, which is make themselves and their networks cleave further away from what real American citizens care about most. These asinine questions about Rob Porter, his background check process and what Gen Kelly said and when only matter to the echo chamber inhabitants. The rest of the country will take a bathroom break while the nightly fake news teams hyperventilate about someone who was unknown until yesterday and will be forgotten tomorrow.

      If a man or woman abuse their spouse or live in they should feel the consequence. This Porter guy has his deranged dealing with his anger well hidden. It is not ok to beat your wife or husband or dog or kids because you had a bad day.

            Yes, innocent until proven guilty. Even pictures can lie. There is a wave of women coming forward making accusations of abuse after years, decades even. These two exes didn’t call LE. If my husband or any man hit me, I would knock the living poo out of him and call LE. Very strange, more strange it’s happening now. I don’t believe either.

              It’s DEMONcRAT projection, again.

              I suspect once pizzagate and the other DEMONcRATic perversions and related crimes come out, their current lies won’t cover anything…

              There is a tactic called “Dead Agenting” that is oddly familiar:

              “So BANISH all ideas that any fair hearing is intended and start our attack with their first breath. Never wait. Never talk about us—only them. Use their blood, sex, crime to get headlines. Don’t use us.”

      • I agree singingsoul. However, this guy has been a part of this administration for more than a year; this black-eye picture is 15 years old and top that off with the fact that this mountain of ” OMG spousal abuse in the Oval Office” transpired in less than 24 hours. Did I mention that it has taken the FBI to complete their investigation of this Senior White House Aide…..more than 12 months,…..seriously?
        I continue to remain very suspicious.

    I am totally against violence of any kind, domestic or otherwise, however, if the victim neglects to press charges then I’m not comfortable with “allegations” being enough to deprive someone of making a living.

    I also know there is a picture of the ex wive that was published yesterday and the black eye she has is HORRENDOUS, but I also read the statement from her and she said he punched her in the face and “hurt her face”. That’s not exactly how I would describe the injury in the photo. So maybe the black eye was not from Rob Porter, but maybe from an accident or even from someone else?

    Porter is the only question whole first half of presser.
    That is it.
    There is nothing else happening in the entire world.

    One question on memo.
    A question on stock exchange.
    A question on Korea.

    Back to Porter.

    I wish Raj would ask that reporter whether he feels that someone who says of Democrats who voted Hillary “I can smell them” or “I saw a Hillary sticker and wanted to key the car” or “I hate them” would be good new hires for the FBI?

    Is it wrong to think Hope Hicks could get just about anyone fired from the White House?
    All she has to do is have dinner with them. Vice President Pence excluded, of course.

    I like Rob, more than Sarah actually. He’s calm but controls the press and cleverly sidesteps the Gotcha questions). He has a better handle of the technical questions (economy, debt ceiling) than Sarah does…


  24. So that was a waste. They have their new target now. Rob Porter. Interesting that both ex-wives did interviews with the Daily Mail when FBI releases the photos. Along with George Bush, Joe Biden, Obama Homeland Security official on NBC, Eric Holder, Omarosa, Jake Tapper all bashing the President. Almost seems coordinated. Get used to it folks. POTUS is getting closer to the truth of the Deep State corruption. And they are freaking out.

  26. I thought this guy, Raj Shah, did a good job. He’s quick and, from the looks of it, doesn’t take too much from the press. I will say, however, he does “talk” too much in terms of what he says For me he gave up a little too much on some of the inside baseball stuff that went on in the WH. But, overall a good job.

    Oh, and Sarah doesn’t need to worry about her job. He simply doesn’t have her sense of humor.

    The Pressitudes are on a campaign to get Kelly fired or forced to resign. I heard the text (and subtext) of their horror over Portman this morning on CNN. They must have really liked all those former leakers inside the WH. Besides, as many top staff they can “scandal” out of work for POTUS, the better they like it. They want to DISRUPT and DEMONIZE as much possible.

    Late watching the press briefing today. Still watching but see that no one has posted this quote re Omarosa. When asked WH reaction.

    “Not very seriously. Omarosa was fired 3 times on The Apprentice. This is the 4th time we let her go. She had limited contact to the President while here. She has no contact now.”

    I heard someone or several make surprise noises or out loud laughter from the press while he was commenting.

    I like that he is recognizing each “reporter” by name as that is helpful to me. Sometimes the camera does not pan to the “press” and even when they do I do not know everyone anyway.

    I would like to see the press stand, state their name and employer/company they represent, when they are recognized and then they ask their question. This would be helpful to the watching audience around the country and world as well as adding some professionalism to their behavior.

    “press”: Congress is saying that they feel that March 5th is no longer the deadline as the admin is again accepting DACA applications.

    Shah: “March 5th IS the deadline.” I Like that! Straight to the point and firm.

    “press” follow up: what is going to happen if they haven’t done anything by then?

    Shah: Who do you mean by “they”?

    “press” clarifies Congress and Shah replies that the WH expects them to act.

    I LOVE that he asked the questioner to clarify what she meant. No, he is not as firm in manner with the press, at least from what I have seen so far, but he was not walked on. I would like to see more of the WH Admin asking the press questions to clarify and asking them what they mean. They need a little of their own tossed back at them.

    He is mostly giving short, to the point answers.

    One interesting thing I noticed that was unusual today was that the “press” argued among themselves about who would speak when. Shah called on some and then they would tell their coworker to wait

    Rob Porter rumored to have recently broke up with a girlfriend who worked at the EPA before dating Hope Hicks. Has anyone seen Lisa Bloom representing Rob ex-wives? Interesting that he would photograph his wife’s eye.
    As for General John Kelly— he came into his job with Rob Porter already in place. Seems like the FBI was very delayed completing their job.
    Did any of Obama Administration have any issue with getting clearence?

    Let’s hope Hope Hicks finds another guy….a good one this time.


  43. visage13 says:

    He was pretty good handling those idiots. Notice how they didn’t speak one word about how top level FBI people are dropping like flies. And do they not listen to the answers to questions? Geez, how many times are they going to ask when did Pres Trump know about the allegations against Porter? The answer is Tuesday, no matter how many times you ask it the answer is Tuesday. My goodness these people make me sick with their stupidity.
