Overall, that White House presser was an embarrassment to the entire journalisic profession. Let’s agree that one has to try very hard to look like the most clueless, pouty, bumbling and idiotic person when Trump is in the room but the journalists manage to win that competition every single time.
A female reporter stands up and in a widdle-guwal-voice (which for some mysterious reason is so fashionable among progressives today) lisps, “You said you were a nationalist and some people took that to mean white nationalist and what can you say about that?” I mean, I understand that self-infantilizing women are all the rage today but it’s not absolutely necessary to feed that fantasy quite so assiduously.
The questions are beyond idiotic. Preening, posturing, repetitive, deeply uninformed. I watch these White House pressers assiduously, and God. They are an embarrassment. And not to Trump.
