CNN receives instant karma and just desserts - i love it.
Trump shuts down CNN reporter - CNN Video

If they want to be part of the party - CNN will have to begin reporting like a real agency very soon.

It is always a good thing to see Trump shutting down the fear mongers who insist on trying to control the globe by spreading falsehoods and fear to keep us all in line.

If Trump accomplishes nothing else, I wish him good luck on ending the totalitarian approach the US intelligence community uses on us, as well as its own citizens, to foster the reports of lies and misinformation they issue daily to achieve their own devious ends.

Every other president before him has swallowed their briefings hook, line and sinker. Not so this one and that may very well make the world a safer place.

Trump's trainwreck press conference ushers in a clueless presidency
It’s safe to say that the Trump administration is already in shambles – and it hasn’t even started yet

Donald Trump is not what he seems. The supposed master of media manipulation stumbled so often at his first press conference, it is hard to recall why anyone thought the TV star was good at this stuff in the first place.

* * *

Judging from Wednesday’s trainwreck press conference – the first since July – Trump and his handlers have no self-discipline and no strategy to deal with the Russian crisis that has been simmering for the best part of the past year.

They also have no sense of irony or, apparently, reality. The press conference opened with Sean Spicer, the incoming press secretary, condemning the media coverage of Trump’s compromised relationship with Russia as “frankly outrageous and highly irresponsible”.

It seems churlish to have to recall this tweet from Trump in the closing phase of the recent election: “Did Crooked Hillary help disgusting (check out sex tape and past) Alicia M become a US citizen so she could use her in the debate?”

This kind of thing makes it hard for the new White House to pass the laugh test, never mind the smell test. It’s heartwarming to know that the president-elect is so concerned about how fake news can destroy real people. If only he had the self-awareness and self-discipline to live by his own words.

* * *

Trump will never learn from his mistakes. Suspecting the recent Russia revelations are the work of the intelligence agencies, Trump continues to wage war on his own spies. He could offer no proof of such a betrayal but continued to trash the CIA in public all the same.

This kind of struggle does not end well for sitting presidents, as Richard Nixon discovered. Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein’s biggest source, known as Deep Throat, was in fact the deputy director of the FBI.

You might think that the main purpose of Trump’s press conference was to squash the Russia dossier news. But no – that was just the first few minutes of the affair.

After a rambling introduction about carmakers, veterans affairs and his inaugural celebrations, Trump finally arrived at his desired topic of the day: the non-resolution of the conflicts of interest that will embroil his presidency from now until he leaves the Oval Office.

A table stacked with yellow envelopes was supposed to represent all the documents Trump signed to disentangle his business affairs from his presidency, by passing management control of the Trump Organization to his sons.

Rather like a suitcase supposedly full of cash, it was hard to tell if any of the documents were real without, you know, releasing them to the press like his tax returns. Instead, we were forced to listen to his personal attorney assuring us there was a wall being built between the presidency and the Trump Organization.

* * *

If this is Trump’s playbook for crisis management, his political opponents should sit back and enjoy the show. Like a dog that returns to his vomit, this president-elect just can’t help himself. Let the follies begin.

Incredible to me how some people idolize him. Including people on these boards. Anyone with a functioning brain should be able to see right through his charade. And it will be interesting observing the wall between him and his sons as they run the family business on his behalf with absolutely no direction or influence from him. That will make family dinners awkward.

The Guardian is a known sinkhole of prog sycophants. They're so out of touch they don't realize there is no "Russian crisis." The purpose of the press conference was anything but dealing with their false flag issue, but apparently they're too blinded by their own self-importance to realize it.

True or false: there was a character named Trump in a 1950's TV episode who promised he could build a wall to save a town from the end of the world.
