White House Press Pool Doesn’t Like Chopper Pressers – ‘He’s Melting Us, Halp’…

We are approaching the never-before-reached strata of “too much winning”.

Today President Trump held the third press conference over thirty minutes in the past four days.  Sunday a chopper presser on the tarmac in New Jersey (36 minutes).  Tuesday a presser in the Oval Office (32 minutes).  Today a South Lawn chopper presser (35 minutes).  No questions filtered; direct responses from President Trump; all questions answered…. and the media can’t take it.

(Jenn Jacobs Tweet Link)

I’m absolutely not snarking at Jenn Jacobs, she’s actually one of the few that keeps her reporting generally between the lines… But the overall tone of press pool response to this level of POTUS availability is hilarious.  ‘Halp, he’s melting us‘.

    The 73-year-old president stands in coat and tie for the entire presser and never mentions the heat. The much younger reporters, seated and more comfortably dressed, can’t take it.

    Their whining is too funny.

    Obviously they weren’t tagging along when candidate Trump was on his 2016 summer hangar rally tour. He *trained* in these tropical venues with high temps and humidity, aka heat index.

    He spoke in Melbourne, Florida for over an hour while sweat-drenched people were dropping…

    Yeah, 35 mins outside is nothing to PDJT….lol

    And PDJT answers questions on a wide range of topics with the facts instantly in his memory, refuting the reporters with aplomb.

    Remember the book by Michael Wolff that claimed PDJT was mentally incompetent? Wolff tried to raise questions about the PDJT’s fitness to serve, and prompted some to consider a “25th Amendment solution.” [The amendment allows for the removal of a president if the vice president and a majority of the cabinet deem him physically or mentally unable to perform his duties.]

    Mentally unfit? PDJT is a genius.

    I love this president so much! They acted like heathens in the comfy indoors so… duhhh. No more indoors.
    He answers every question, even the same one asked 4 times, calmly and thoroughly.

    Their entire issue is that they no longer have the power to tell us all “what the president said and what the president meant, and the underlying evil something or other surely driving his every word and deed, blah blah sources say blah blah orange man bad…”

    President Trump speaks the way every day people speak. People understand what he’s talking about, and now have duly noted the hypocrisy of the majority media.

    President Trump forces his foes into the open bare naked. Every time.
    The press as a corporate industry is imploding. I pray it collapses completely.

    The great Ronald Reagan impressed the Soviets when he went to Geneva for a summit and stood outside in the freezing cold for an extended period of time without an overcoat talking to Gorbachev, who was wearing an overcoat and hat. This caught the attention of the Soviets in a big way. It gained their respect. Gorbachev looked weak. Reagan looked STRONG. And that is exactly how the Soviets interpreted it.

    President Trump is essentially doing the same thing to the much younger media, and he’s doing it in a suit and tie, while they ARE NOT. I think President Trump remembers that example and is using a variation of it.

    He’s not just melting them, he’s teaching them a lesson they cannot even grasp…………….yet.

    Yes, media folks, that guy you constantly attempt to tear down really IS more of a man than you.

      And now cnn doesn’t think President Trump is aging fast enough like other presidents so they claim he doesn’t care. His energy comes from the power of positive thinking and his faith. He was raised listening to Norman Vincent Peale who wrote the book. Peale has changed millions of lives, energizing them to greatness.

    As Sundance says, these not-so-impromptu “pressers”, wherein El Excellente in full boss-man regalia answers every (mostly inane, contentious) question over about thirty minutes, give none of these blatting phonies “face time” on TV, indeed rarely identify any maundering dolt by name.

    Very occasionally, so-called “sound bites” have marginal significance in context-and-perspective; and of course these “open forums” do pretend to Public Information. But in contemporary celebrity-popcult venues, “content” per se is meaningless; what matters is, who’s speaking and “why is he saying that?”

    Did you notice the direction of the shadows?

    Aide to the President: Where do you want the media?
    President: Outside.
    Aide: Kind of hot and humid out there.
    President: So?
    Aide: Should we at least put them in the shade?
    President: (Looks out the window, looks at the location of the Sun and points.) Put the right there.
    Aide: Yes Sir.

      It was brilliant strategy by the POTUS and WH communications team. He allowed them to be a three ring circus in the early years to expose their corporate/DNC missions and intent. All of the talking points and false allegations were like water off a duck’s back. He brought Sarah in to be the one to zing them and highlight their lack of intellect. He let it simply evolve to the current staging where they must endure the elements and the noise of the copter to be humiliated openly on the mics in front of America. We all now know the underlying corruption and mission of the fake news industry. It gets worse for them from here.

        TradeBait, I’m not 100% sure but didn’t this new strategy take effect right after a new WH communications director was brought in? I can’t recall his name but I’m pretty sure Sundance mentioned who it is in a previous article several months back.

        Sarah did a few more “Romper Room” pressers right after and then BAM!l off to the tarmac the little enemedianites were directed!

    I have to disagree with the assessment of Jenn Jacobs. While she doesn’t seem to go off the rails. she, to my knowledge, hasn’t personally ever called Trump “President”. Over 2 years she hasn’t slipped up even once (retweets and quoting others seems to be the only time she mentions it) when you work that hard to NOT say the obvious there’s coloring in your reporting, even if it’s just very light

    Makes sense. They are simply pretending to be reporters… playing a part. They aren’t interested in actually doing it, asking the right questions, finding truth. He’s brilliant at exposing people/situations for what they really are… Forcing a bunch of so called reporters to stand in hot, humid weather while they do their job… It’s like asking them “are you really here to be a reporter or are you simply playing a role in the fake news play?”

    Trump is taking them on on his terms and baking and sweating them in the process.

    There is another aspect: I continue to read lots of snarky comments from lo-fos (happily, intentionally, lo-fos) who have been persuaded that President Trump is lazy, spends all day watching TV, etc., etc. It is mind-boggling that there are people who totally oblivious to all the work that the President does, at least to me. (But then I read CTH.)

    These press conferences prior to departure highlight the fact that this is an extremely busy, going, doing, hard-working President, even without the lying Press being willing to admit it.

    In the group picture I notice a couple of the male reporters did have their suitcoats on, but since no one is actively trying to persuade others to kill them they don’t have to wear body armor.

    I have actually seen sweat roll down President Trump’s face a couple of times; I figure if he needed to he could always re-shower/dress/groom on Air Force One.

    When I was a kid, there used to be a mechanical seal at our city park, that was submerged halfway in 2 feet of water. It had a big open mouth that was designed to catch pennies tossed at it. If you landed your penny in its mouth it would rise up, clap is fins, and bark for a short time, then it would sink back down until the next penny hit the mark. Trumps helicopter pressers remind me of this. Feeding little pennies to the barking seals.
