Trump must really believe that if there isn't tape, it didn't happen.

T-man must be worried about his time 'visiting,' Mrs. Bubba the Love Sponge, who is the next director of the FCC.

I'll see your charcoal sketch, and raise you! Also, someone on fark actually recommended they do that, also a stenographer. We need to find that post.

Heh. I almost posted that one instead. But I thought black and white really captures the moment.

The two back to back works the best IMO. The actual artist drew the charcoal sketch and posted it, and later colored it in and posted that one too.

Sean Spicer

isn't getting any nicer

.

Perhaps it's the evil etching into his soul

or maybe his job is taking its toll

.

or maybe It isn't the stress

but the fault of the press

.

The press is like a thriving cancer

Because they refuse to take lies as an answer...

.

Burma Shave!

Remember, if you feel any sympathy for Snekretary, don't.  I have been tempted also, but he is a plumber on the Death Star. He knew what he was getting into.

What if the media grew a pair and just turned the cameras on and dared the admin to arrest or eject all of them?
 
2017-06-27 08:22:14 AM  
Because CNN spent half of 2015 and most of 2016 sucking Trump's balls.

Because that'd play right into the WHs hands, even if they unified.

And some would splinter, so we'd end up with more press passes for infowars and that bro from W's administration that ask nothing but softball or off-the-wall questions

2017-06-27 08:32:30 AM  
What is the point of no cameras exactly? So they can deny that they said something later? Just cowards? Spicy got fat? I just don't get it, it reduces the effectiveness of their messaging when news organizations can put their own "take" on everything since there are no recordings to play.

This.  Make them kick you out.  Raise a huge farking stink.  If they retaliate, abandon your offices and camp out in front of the White House and show no mercy.
 
2017-06-27 08:38:13 AM  
I think what is worse than no cameras is people cheering this administration on for blocking the press.

You can't kill democracy in the full light of day.

Stonewalling the press is a hallmark of fascist regimes, but the press are to wussy to actually do anything about it.

I like you, Acosta but go fark yourself and fark your ball licking CNN bosses as well.

Number 216: At least without cameras, he won't be caught trying to hide in bushes again, it'll only be the reporters recounting of how Spicey tried to hide

[img.fark.net image 541x433]


He wasn't hiding "in" the bushes. He was standing "among" the bushes! Among them. That is totally different. He just didn't want his eyes hurt from those bright camera lights. His eyes don't adapt very fast these days. Especially when he is on his evening bottle of Jack and grams of coke binge.

So very much this AND this. There is not only a constitutional right to a free press, but the free press has an obligation to BE the free press.

From what I've read, Spicer believes the only reason reporters are asking him tough questions is so they can look good on camera.

You might actually have a point, supposedly Trump gets all his information from watching cable news, and now he can't see Spicer directly. Fox state news channel will put their fascist friendly interpretation on anything that is said so it will be safe for Trump to watch.

How is this not a 1st amendment violation?  The government is obviously directly interfering with communication from the press.  This unconstitutional shiat needs to get squashed really damn quick.

I don't buy it.  This isn't a 'technically correct' type of thing.  I really hope constitutional lawyers are working on this.

Wait.  I have missed something here.  I haven't been paying too much attention to politics over the past few days.

Are they seriously not allowing cameras in White House briefings now?   Is this a permanent decision?

Holy fark.   If that's the case, this country just goes further down the rabbit hole every week.
