First WH Press Conference under Trump

Do not attempt to adjust your TV, there is no problem with your set. This is an actual press briefing from the White House, do not be alarmed!

Since media has been so used to being spoon-fed their talking points from the Press room — speaking that liberal code language they’re all versed in — an actual, real press briefing is so out of the ordinary. The WH may add press passes for four Skype connections.

Obama’s old system will be exactly reversed: scripted talking points will come from hostile media in an attempt to put up a united front against the WH. That is backwards from the top-down flow, Obama model from the White House that successfully tried to manipulate news coverage. Just like darling sycophants, they followed in lockstep.

Obama, when leaving, left his instructions for how toughly media should cover Trump — knowing full well how his WH press corps treated him. Both Obama and press/media had gotten so used to their cozy relationship. Of course they did not want that to change. Try to imagine what a press briefing under Hillary Clinton would have looked like, complete with cake and all the party favors. And they could safely ignore their job, once again.
