today's press conference
Sure, it's "Listen up motherfuckers, you are all a bunch of fucking lying pieces of shit. Contrary to your lies, we are getting shit done and we are taking names." for 77 minutes.
He also does this cool thing where he starts out saying there will be lots of time for questions at the end, but what he doesn't warn them is he spent a lot of time creating dossiers on the entire press corp, so whoever asks a question for over 40 minutes he just starts going on about their networks crimes against him and the american people.
So he's turned into an orange putin?

"I'm not gonna rant and rave about the media", then proceeds to rant and rave about the media.
I watched the entire video. There was nothing extraordinary about the press conference, certainly not enough to justify the bleak reportage.
He said some things better off not said, such as (these are not verbatim quotes) "80% of the decisions of that Circuit are overturned on appeal, that's just a figure I heard", and then later repeating it. That's completely wrong and he must stop doing things like that.
He said some good things such as "I'm not going to tell you what my response to the Russian provocations will be. Hopefully nothing but I won't tell you regardless".
Mix of good and bad, like pretty much anything anywhere. Whingers need to get over it. Hopefully he'll leave his country better than he found it (same hope as for every world leader ever, some realised, some not).
Actually, of the 9th circuit decisions that the Supreme Court reviewed, 80% of them WERE IN FACT OVERTURNED.
Time period was 1999 to 2008 when all the district courts were analyzed.
9th circuit had the highest overturn rate and was an outlier in the data. This means they are a rogue court that doesn't follow Constitutional precepts as understood by the USSC.
The actual number was 80.0% so it's not like it was 79.3% and was rounded up. The exact number is 80.0%
