Trump’s off-the-rails news conference

From DJT's latest press conference:
Reporter: Mr. President, have you spoken to the family of the victim of the car attack?

TRUMP: No, I’ll be reaching out. I’ll be reaching out.

Reporter: When will you be reaching out?

TRUMP: I thought that the statement put out -- the mother’s statement I thought was a beautiful statement. I will tell you, it was something that I really appreciated. I thought it was terrific. And, really, under the kind of stress that she’s under and the heartache that she’s under, I thought putting out that statement, to me, was really something. I won’t forget it. Thank you, all, very much. Thank you. Thank you.
Here's a link to a transcript of the press conference:

It's long, but it likely will get your attention. Or just check out the highlighted text. Video of the conference is at the same link.

That news conference was a joke. It couldn't have been more ridiculous if it had been scripted by Saturday Night Live writers.

He kept saying "both sides" ... what 'sides?!' There were Nazis - and those against Nazis. Is he really suggesting that Americans act like German Jews did and just stand silently and politely while Nazis march through our streets with torches chanting ethnic insults?!

Does he understand that people aren't calling these idiots 'Nazis' as a metaphor - they are ACTUALLY NAZIS.

Jesus.

What a total asshat-in-chief.
Thanks from catus felis, Camelot and Hollywood

His performance yesterday proved that his initial comments on Saturday were his real feelings. His prepared statements on Monday were given only under political pressure. Yesterday he reverted back to his original thoughts. He offers protection to the white supremacists and Nazis. He was widely complimented yesterday for his comments by David Duke and other white supremacists. Now their recruitment efforts and numbers will swell. It's on folks.

I watched the damned news conference before going to a live outdoor concert. It ruined my mood. I HAVE kept the door open for Trump because I do agree with some of his positions. But, DJT simply can't change who he is: a disgusting rich fuck who's better than you and everyone

He doesn't lie so much as he says what's most convenient in the moment. That habit explains his crass hypocrisy, such as:
Here’s the thing. When I make a statement, I like to be correct. I want the facts. This event just happened. In fact, a lot of it didn’t even happen yet, as we were speaking. This event just happened. Before I make a statement, I need the facts. I don’t want to rush into a statement, so making the statement when I made it was excellent.

In fact, the young woman, who I hear is a fantastic young woman, her mother wrote me, and said, through I guess Twitter, social media, the nicest things, and I very much appreciated that. I hear she was a fine, really actually an incredible young woman. But her mother, on Twitter, thanked me for what I said, and honestly, if the press were not fake, and it was honest, the press would have said what I said was very nice.

(chatter)

Excuse me. But unlike you, and unlike the media – before I make a statement, I like to know the facts..
What hypocrisy, and for some reason, he can't say "Heather Heyer."
Thanks from Camelot

Covfefe is not in the dictionary. Trump probably meant to say coven.

Reporter: The CEO of Walmart said you missed a critical moment to bring the country together. Did you?

TRUMP: Not at all. Look, you take a look. I’ve created over a million jobs since I’m president. The country is booming, the stock market is setting records, we have the highest unemployment we’ve ever had in the history of our country, we’re doing record business, we have the highest levels of enthusiasm, so the head of Walmart, who I know – he’s a very nice guy – was making a political statement. I mean, ask him how his – they do it the same way, and you know why? Because I want to make sure, when I make the statement, that the statement was correct. There’s no way, there was no way of making a correct statement that early. I had to see the facts, unlike a lot of reporters, unlike a lot of reporters.

I didn’t know David Duke was there. I wanted to see the facts, and the facts, as they started coming out, were very well stated. In fact, everybody said, “his statement was beautiful. If he would have made it sooner, that would have been good.” I couldn’t have made it sooner because I didn’t know all of the facts. Frankly, people still don’t know all of the facts. It was very important –

(chatter)

Excuse me, excuse me. It was very important to me to get the facts out, and correctly. Because if I would have made a fast statement – and the first statement was made without knowing much other than what we were seeing. The second statement was made after – with knowledge, with great knowledge. There’s still things – excuse me – there’s still things that people don’t know. I want to make a statement with knowledge, I wanted to know the facts. Okay.
See? DJT didn't miss a critical moment to bring the country together.

He IS bringing the Country together.

About 60% of the country disapprove of Trump's performance. When is the last time 60% of the country agreed on ANYTHING?
