Epic – Reporter Complains About Social Distancing, POTUS Responds: “It’s a peaceful protest”…

This was a rather funny and epic moment from President Trump’s press conference in Bedminster, New Jersey.   A member of the press pool complains that the room is not following NJ rules on social distancing.  President Trump reminds the reporter that political activity is excluded and this is a form of “peaceful protest”.  lol

        PDJT is SO ready for the debates! All his pressers? He’s been PRACTICING, honing a skill he developed over 20 years, of ‘sparring’with the press,….

        And he is SO ready! Game ON!
        IF Biden shows up, PDJT will not only mop the floor with him, he’ll decimate whoever the smarmy inquisitors are, that feed Biden prescreened softballs, while trying to make PDJT look bad.

        They ain’t THAT good, and He is in top form!

    President Trump is always quick.

    But since they are always trying to nitpick him to death, I wonder if “peaceful protest” gives them an ethics charge that it wasn’t actually a press conference? Or … something … always something.

      President Trump speaks for all of us who cannot go to church, hold funerals, or celebrate graduations and birthdays. We are disgusted, tired, and insulted that violent rioters are celebrated while peaceful, law-abiding people are villified by the left and their MSM enablers. I stood up and hollered when President Trump fired back at the reporter. He definitely stands up for those without a voice.

        Ventura County church hit with emergency injunction to shut down indoor services and deemed a threat to public safety. Pastor McCoy vows to challenge it and hold services even though he and up to 1000 congregants will be cited if they go inside and pray.

        “Oh, you’re a law-abiding, taxpaying citizen? No church for you – no visits with your elderly parents, no funerals for your loved ones, too bad about that small business you have spent years building up…sorry, but it’s just not safe!”

        “What, you’re a dropout on welfare or a punk rich kid from the suburbs still living with your parents and you want to rail against the unfairness of a society you NEVER sought to join or improve? Absolutely, go right ahead and riot! It’s your right!!”

          How many businesses have been lost while people followed the draconian rules only to have those same rules flaunted by those with “preferred” status? Or hunkering down for five months now to “flatten the curve” with absolutely no end in sight? Our state (WI) is moving backwards. Last week the governor mandated face diapers for all businesses, which once again will hit bars and restaurants harder than other businesses. President Trump’s response to the reporter was cheered by millions of people tired of being shamed by the hypocrites in the press.

            There is a rally scheduled for tomorrow at Seattle City Hall to support SPD. Hoping that THOUSANDS show up to Back the Blue. Our City Council, led by an avowed Marxist (who immigrated here on an H1-B Visa), is determined to defund the police and bring about “The Revolution”! (There are actually people looking to see if her citizenship can be revoked because she is encouraging treasonous actions against government officials which violates the oath she took when she became a citizen. That would be amazing! Maybe someone should do the same with a few of the “squad” members as well?)

        When it becomes more obvious that areas that have been hit hardest by covid have reached herd immunity of sorts – by Oct 1 – he can hold some rallies. FL, AZ, PA and MI especially. When he does hold those rallies they will be very emotional and will draw the contrast with Biden hiding in his basement and drooling on himself.

        Online Rallies is just right for these times. He could have 20 million watching.
        Also and most importantly it would put pressure on Biden. Their excuse right now is Chines virus, so they say he can’t really do much for safety reasons.

        Ok… fair enough, what about an online rally? No excuse!

        Trump having 20 million of us watching, and challenging Biden to do the same would definably expose the farce.

        Joe is Senile, they are hiding him but as far as their base is concerned, Chinese virus is a wonderful justification for him to hide. Works for the left.

        Ok… then do online Rallies, let’s see what Joe has to offer. think about that!

    In recent pressers, it seems he doesn’t entertain all questions as in the past. He hits resistance and either goes to the next questioner and if the next questioner stalls in order to let the rambling previous questioner try to get Trump to respond, he just ends the presser.

    Or like Kayleigh has been doing, let a specific question cue up a prepared response and #walkaway. Mic drop, but more apropos: training the kids that the adult in the room is not going to put up with BS so stop playing games. Brilliant.

Some audible applause and “damn straights” yelled out once in a while… Every good team needs its cheerleaders and it seems Trump almost never has any IN THE ROOM when the cameras are rolling.. Would sure be great if his PR people could try to start organizing that.. Even if it was just 10 well behaved supporters per presser.

    The other was the news that PDJT will suspend the payroll tax by executive order retroactive to July 1st. I have 16 employees that deserve to be rewarded for actually working when many of them would have made just a few less dollars per week sitting on their asses. Just wish it was retroactive to mid April when we defied HalfwHitlers orders and went back to work.

    Trump should bring more of his staff to press conferences more often. They should boo like a home crowd everytime the reporters ask snarky questions.

          No “cold water”, at least I didn’t MEAN to, and certainly not “always”; I just KNOW, with absolute certainty, WHO sent DJT’s tax return to the NYT.

          Having WATCHED DJT ‘in action’ for 3+ years, I have come to appreciate that not all if his fortuitous actions,…are.

          And it IS a common practice, and has been for years, for administrations to ‘feed’ questions to the press.

          No cold water, just the ways of the swamp, which PDJT has become skillful at navigating.

No matter how nicey-nice and “friendly” they appear to be, their true colors always come out eventually, without fail. As soon as they can figure out how and where to shiv you, they’ll do it.
