Trump Doubles Down on Israel, Trashes Media in Press Conference

Just moments ago.

Trump said something about the right to bear arms, and a leftwing agitator with a press pass said, "That's an NRA talking point," and Trump said, "That's a Trump talking point."

8 Really awesome back and forth with Trump and the reporters.

He mentioned they were looking at birth right citizenship issues too.

Also, at the very beginning he repeated he wants to get guns into the legal hands of citizens, not mental and criminals. Knows of the slippery slope, he said again.

Dancing With the Stars' decision to cast Sean Spicer in its latest season has drawn a sharp rebuke on social media, with some calling on ABC to reverse course and dump the disgraced former White House press secretary.

"Sean Spicer repeatedly lied to the American people and literally defended Hitler," Big Bang Theory co-creator Bill Prady bemoaned on Twitter. Community vet Yvette Nicole Brown, whose previous ABC credits The Mayor, called Spicer's hiring "very problematic." Rosewell showrunner Carina Adly MacKenzie implored ABC to "do better."

Trump revives 'an appetite for background checks' stance
https://t.co/shRDOY71rp

Trump addressed background check legislation on Wednesday while speaking to reporters

"I have an appetite for background checks. We're going to be doing background checks. We're working with Democrats. We're working with Republicans. And we already have very strong background checks, but we're going to be filling in some of the loopholes," the president began. "So what happens is, with background checks, we're dealing with Democrats, we're dealing with Republicans, we're dealing with the NRA, we're dealing with gun owners, we're dealing with everybody. And I think we'll have something hopefully that's meaningful."

Didn't TFG average about 18 minutes per answer because unscripted, he would ramble and get into the weeds? This was despite obviously having most (all?) of the questions in advance.

166 What I find most grievous about the way the Press talks about Trump is that they are stuck in the rut of "he's anti-press."

Citation needed. Show your evidence. No cheating off your neighbor.

Trump hates the press whores. But has he spied on them like Obama did? Has he planted his own people into positions to feed their foreign desks like Obama did? No.

He is mean to them. Big deal. He also gives them more time than any other president. He is incredibly accessible to the press. He is combative and doesn't let them lie without being immediately checked - often witheringly - but he talks to them. Constantly. He calls them out as frauds and liars, but he doesn't shut them down or impede them in any way.

In terms of access and transparency - the things that count - Trump is hands-down the most pro-press president in my lifetime. It doesn't matter that he's very mean to them because he's given them all unprecedented access and time.

I really, desperately hate these people. I might hate the press whores more than Trump does.

China is the latest to learn a lesson: "corners" are essentially impossible. People and organizations try to do them all the time but they inevitably fail.

As for Greenland - or Kalaallit Nunaat, as it were - one immediate benefit they would get is as a place to get pre-cleared by U.S. CBP before going on to the CONUS. ANC gets TONS of cargo traffic for that reason. That alone does a great deal for the Anchorage economy. (as much as people now fashionably hate trade, it's true.) The Nuuk airport would be expanded to accommodate the cargo traffic from Europe on its way to the United States. So I would suspect, anyway.

I like how now that he's canceled the meeting they're all upset.

Seems maybe they were put off by his open discussions and wanted more behind closed doors.

That plus they're female Premier or President or whatever got all up on her high horse and now regrets it.

Greenland has a lot of mineral wealth. Geologically, it is part of the Canadian shield, which is very resource-rich. They also have coal, notably on Disko Island. Probably great potential for offshore oil and gas, too.

#NEW: Pres. Trump is considering ending birthright citizenship for children born in the U.S. to parents who are noncitizens or crossed into the U.S. illegally.

"You walk over the border, have a baby - congratulations, the baby is now a U.S. citizen.... It's frankly ridiculous."

Trump should try to only buy the mineral rights. If he gives the Greenlanders (and the Danes) a cut of the profits (via a small tax on the mining companies and ore processors), it may be too sweet of a deal to refuse.

I think a lot, probably far beyond his capabilities.

I suspect he was able to trigger the 2008 recession because the financial industry was already nervous about the subprime mortgage situation, so all he had to do was yell at the unstable snowbank to trigger the avalanche.

But I doubt he can start a recession that is not otherwise imminent.

Giglibrand is irrelevant, always has been, and likely always will be, much like Gabbard and Castro.

335 246 Greenland costs DK $800 million.

What do they produce / do in return? Why would we want to incur that much more debt?

Granted, it's not much, but we've got homeless veterans in this country that money would do a LOT for.
Posted by: Sponge at August 21, 2019 01:36 PM (Zz0t1)

I bet you hated William Seward in a former life.

Check out what I wrote above for an example of what Greenland could provide. It could - could - be an entrepot for trade to the United States. (Trade is extremely unpopular these days but it is still a crucial element to the economy.)

The best part about government spending $800 million on homeless veterans is that it absolves people of responsibility. All you will need to do is say "I care about homeless veterans! See! I pay my taxes!"

We COULD take care of homeless veterans at much less cost, through civil society, and - most shocking of all - if they get jobs. Problem is that in spite of all the virtue signaling from corporate America about how they love our veterans, and how they want to hire veterans, they in reality go way out of their way to refuse to hire veterans, while no one is looking. (But hey, people will buy veterans a meal at the airport to "thank them for their service". Giving them the means to actually get countless meals for themselves? That's pure crazy talk.) And then people start to whine about why there are all these homeless veterans...

341 I was totally disgusted by NPR this morning, which I force myself to listen to in order that I might know what lies that particular enemy of the people is currently shoveling out!

Virtually every story was selected to be able to be slanted against Trump. The fake recession was the most dominant theme, with the hourly "business news" the worst I have heard: a series of good indicators, followed by a big subjective "BUT..." to negate it all.

The classic had to be the NPR spokesman asking the market analyst (in essence) "Why are the consumers still buying like things are great, with all the bad economic news?". He didn't add "that we are creating!" but it was clearly his thinking.

The analyst had just pointed out that consumer spending drives 70% of GDP, and it was obvious that the NPR guy saw that as the biggest stumbling block in the way of creating a recession!
