No it won't. I figure there are decent odds in favor of him hijacking the event and turning it into a public address. In such a case, I also expect the cameras to continue rolling as the press stands in idle silence, out of a varying mix of fear, resignation, and / or sheer reverence. No bombshells or anything; regardless of the outcome, his base will suck his pud ever harder and the news outlets will continue their thumbs-up-their-own-butts "Huh, so I guess that just happened," "analysis."

I'm not challenging Reality to prove me wrong any more.

Well we get to see today how abandoned we are by the press. I hope they keep their questions short and pithy.
 
2017-01-11 09:26:56 AM  
He does best when it's a chaos circus.  Now he can spend the whole time during his press conference railing on fake news and unsubstantiated claims about the Russians and totally ignore what the press endlessly-delayed conference was supposed to be about.  He'll do just fine, regrettably.

Can't say the same for his nominees.

Maybe.  On the other hand, the media is realizing there's no blowback whatsoever to them kicking Trump as often as they want.  He's not giving them "access" anyway, and he's wildly unpopular already.  There's little downside to them flinging crap at him.  See CNN's heavy coverage to the golden shower allegations.

They'll keep him in the news cycle in a continuous negative light, and he hates that.

It's a press conference.  By definition it's a public address.

OK, what does this dickhead have planned for the table of manila folders they just rolled in? Likely not his taxes. Perhaps all of his business interests?

This is gonna be so precedential.

Hubby is saying that the peeing prostitutes thing was 4chan fanfic that was leaked to the CIA. Anyone else hear that? Didn't read last nights thread, in case that was covered.

Of course, that continues to conflate the CIA memo and the Buzzfeed thing, which I think we need to be vigilant in keeping separate in order not to muddy the waters.

May I start drinking now? His head might literally explode on air.

It was covered, and the 4chan posts claiming that all came after the Mother Jones publication that outlined this. Nothing but deflection by /pol/

Does anyone really believe that 4chan has any credibility with the CIA?
 
2017-01-11 11:11:58 AM  
I'll believe it when I see it. The press has been his ally, whether he admits it or not and whether they intended to be or not, and the GOP has no integrity, so they wouldn't care to cause him a hard time.

They're "his" files on all the reporters present, their families, and their friends. The press conference will be "Everyone, come get your file. Now, I'm going to do what I want to do with my financials, and you are going to say there's no conflict. No conflict. No conflict of interest.  Any questions?"  And there will be crickets.

The buzz feed thing was nonsense, and unfortunately it is going to give him cover to say "see, these allegations against me are ridiculous rumors started by Internet trolls!" While ignoring all the very real concerns and suspiscions. Honestly, that fake leak was the worst possible thing that could have happened. Fark me sideways, I hate this shiat.

This day will be the day when Trump demonstrates that he can figuratively "shoot someone on 5th Ave" and it won't make a difference.

/"shoot someone", "be subject to foreign state blackmail" <- same thing

Trump is scheduled to appear before hundreds of reporters at 11 a.m. in the lobby of Trump Tower in New York.

Five'll get you ten that he doesn't say anything about conflict of interest and instead turns this into an infomercial about the building's restaurant.

/pol/? Twittereggs made sure the "4Chan made it up" line hit every major news outlet at once. Smells like Vodka to me. And by that I mean Vladimir Putin, not Mitch McConnell.

What was nonsense about it? It was reported that it was reported to the intelligence agencies. Do you not believe that to be the case?

Thank you. I went to bed early. Figured it was something like that.

Any input on the drinking question?

"We'll talk about it on Wednesday," the president-elect said. "All I can say is it's very simple, very easy."

If it's so simple and easy, how come it's taken you this long to figure out how to do it?
