Trump Threatens Bi-Weekly Press Briefings: "I'll Have One Every Two Weeks And I'll Do It Myself"

Tyler Durden's picture

Following the chaotic fallout over the firing of FBI Director James Comey, Fox News has just wrapped an interview with POTUS conducted by Judge Jeanine Pirro.  And, just moments ago, we got our first sneak peak at the contents of that upcoming interview when Fox News released a teaser clip of Trump once again threatening to cancel the White House's daily press briefings.

Pirro:  "Are you moving so quickly that your communications department cannot keep up with you?"


Trump"Yes.  That's true."


Pirro:  "So what do we do about that?"


Trump:  "We don't have press conferences.  We just don't have them.  Or unless I have one every two weeks and I do it myself.  We don't have them.  I think it's a good idea." 


First of all, you have a level of hostility that is incredible.  And it's very unfair." 


Of course, this follows similar comments made by Trump in a mini tweet storm released earlier this morning. 


Just in case anyone in the White House reads this note, we're of the opinion that this new approach would be worth a trial run just for the fun of the numerous on-air mainstream media meltdowns it would undoubtedly induce.

Literally one of two ways that these things could get any spicier is for Trump to do them himself.

The other involves a series of buttons that open trap doors under members of the press corps.

America, for the most part, has never really given a fuck what the rest of the world thinks of them ..


but for that little part that does, I'd hazard a guess that  "Never has a nation been so deserving of their elected leadership" is probably a popular sentiment right now.

He can troll the MSM as long as he wants if he'll give us a good FBI Director

""Press Briefing... And I'll Do It Myself""

WOW ...

This reminds me of my local Strip Club Announcer: "It's SHOWTIME..."

Good for President Trump!  It's a wonder that he hasn't dropped the briefings before now. 

The reporters continue to behave like spoiled brats. What's the best thing to do with a child that throws a tantrum? WALK AWAY. If the reporters can't behave civilly, don't say a word: just GET UP AND LEAVE.  It's a lesson that needs to be taught to everyone whose job includes press conferences and media scrums.

Part of the problem seems to be the mix of reporters. Some should probably be put out to pasture. I thought there was some attempt to introduce greater diversity and reduce the predominance of Fake News agencies, but it hasn't put enough of a dent in the childishness, apparently. So scrub 'em and go back to prepared statements and exclusives.

And for Heaven's sake, quit with the juvenile-and-potentially-dangerous Twittering.

It doesn't matter what Trump does to appease the press.

The press has him on double-secret probation.

They want him out, gone finished!


... So he might as well have a good time.

Who the hell do you think you are to tell me what I should or shouldn't do?

Comey is that you?

Regardless, go suck a big bag of ... (you know you want it) snowflake.

Biweekly is an excellent idea.  It will starve the MSM of daily tidbits of content they stretch all out of proportion.  Plus the President gets in front of the people more often instead of a surrogate.

you make a good point sir!  it might go back to being real, and maybe we start scaling back some of these empty suits that get paid for doing essentially nothing.  hadn't thought about it that way.

It will increase the amount of unsubstantiated leaks, though.

I'm teaching my kid that instead of worrying about what other people think of you, they should be worrying about what you think of them.


Some folk in this world are not worth a second of your time.


Hell, we could shut down the Left just by shunning them, completely.


With the number of shows canceled by the major networks, you wonder what happened to their audience. And so do they.

The White House Press Corps has too much power. Kick them out of the WH. They are just Democrat lying operatives with a byline.

Maybe Trump can just hold his breath until he turns blue in the face.

In lieu of that, he can always fall to the floor and pound his arms and legs in a massive temper tantrum.

Gotta love the fact that the peanutz all think people want to know about their delusions.

If he acted like that, he'd just be another Democrat.

You stupid fuck.

He should go direct to the public, if his Press Secretary keeps saying, "no comment," allowing others to control the answer.

That would be awesome, one press briefing every other week, delivered by The Donald himself.  

Of course, there would only be about 5 minutes of the first one and that would be the end of that.  But it's a really hilarious idea.

Fireside chats is the term used to describe a series of 30 evening radio conversations (chats) given by U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt between 1933 and 1944. Roosevelt spoke with familiarity to millions of Americans

I think Trump's press conference would be different from FDR's Fireside Chats.  Trump would certainly speak with familiarity, though, but I think the similarities would dwindle after that.

trump is the president and he can do what he wants, he has no obligation to do any media briefings if he wishes until they start behaving like humans.

I agree.  Frankly I was surprised at how often Spicer did a presser, seems way more often than Obama's people did.  Trump could have nipped it right away but wants the press to be able to ask questions.  I think a presser every one or two weeks is plenty.  

swmnguy's picture

I think all the Press Secretaries traditional do one every day.  There just wasn't nearly the entertainment value pre-Spicey.  Ari Fleischer gave some doozies when he was in the job.
