    It was 100 times more of a press conference than we’ve seen in the last 8 years. The Obama days of turning in your questions ahead of time so the President doesn’t look like a bafoon are finally over. Stay in Berkley Reich, you’re right where you belong. :lol:

      Trump doesn’t need the press to make him look like a buffoon.

    You have to look at it from both sides. It doesn’t need a tyrant to disdain a news media that broadcasts a story before it is verified to have any credence. If your character is attacked by someone without solid evidence, it is at most a slandering and it can be subject to a lawsuit. And you have every right to shut them out.
