Why aren't more people talking about the fact that Donald Trump gave his longest press conference since "winning" the election with a multi flag waving Don King by his side?

Courtesy of the New York Times:  

President-elect Donald J. Trump said Americans should “get on with our lives” in comments to reporters before Thursday’s expected White House announcement that the United States will retaliate against Russia for its election-year hacking of Democratic Party computers.

Asked late Wednesday night at his Mar-a-Lago estate about President Obama’s plans to take action against Russia and its president, Vladimir V. Putin, Mr. Trump was dismissive. He appeared to concede the need to make computers more secure, but was vague about how that related to a possible response to Russia. “I think we ought to get on with our lives,” he said. 

“I think that computers have complicated lives very greatly. The whole age of computer has made it where nobody knows exactly what is going on. We have speed, we have a lot of other things, but I’m not sure we have the kind, the security we need.” 

Mr. Trump took questions from a handful of reporters as Don King, the sports promoter and a longtime friend, stood next to him. The president-elect has not held a formal news conference since July, though he promised on Wednesday to hold one in early January.

Okay so as you see the Times mentioned the Don King shaped elephant in the room, but only in passing, while other news outlets seemed to ignore his presence altogether, DESPITE the fact that he interjected himself into the Q & A several times.

Yes I recognize that there was some news made with his impromptu press conference, such as that Trump had talked to the President, his fumbling response about Israel, and his dismissal of the importance to investigate the Russian hacking, but for me the biggest story was that he made all of those statements while standing next to a convicted murder/circus clown.

If there is ANYTHING that sums up the Trump presidency in a nutshell, it is a picture like this.

 Because essentially these are two sides of the same coin, with the only real difference being the pigment of their skin and the fact that one of their daddies gave them millions of dollars.

These are both fast talking charlatans, who each made their money by exploiting those with real talent, and by cheating their workers out of their fair share.

And now one of them is going to be the President of the United States.

    It wasn't a press conference, it was a distraction. Trump knows the idiot media will come running even though they get punked every time. He is not a real president and never will be.

    It's fine for Trump to troll the media during the transition but soon he'll be neck-deep in hot manure and trying to cover it up- the shoe will be on the other foot then.

    Totally agree with you on your comment. This was so weird. Don King standing waving some flags from side to side - Trump making his usual nothing statements. it all made no sense. What the heck? Don K was holding an American flag - I think. Also a flag of Israel - I think - but there was a third one I could not make out. So bizarre.

  16. that was a whole lot of nothing, and as you said, it's no surprise to see these two dons hanging out together as they are both full of shite con artists. donald sounds like a used car salesman - "i think you're really gonna like it...." and what was that shite about him creating jobs while he's doing nothing hanging out with don king? that bit went over my head, but i suspect it was a load of lies anyway. i just want to wipe that smug ald smile off of donald's face and remind him not only is he not the president, but more than half the country and most of the world don't want him to be president. and that was not a press conference, that was a pre-boxing pep rally for israel. the flag of israeel might mean peace but they like the US has done many times, have overplayed their hand. might does not make right, and if they want peace in the middle east, they have to make some concessions and not encroach further than previously agreed on palestinian territory. donald is putting his whole torso into shark infested waters by getting into this conflict blind and without understanding. and his statement about graham was him all over - well he ran against me, so i haven't talked to him. big baby. i'm sure lindsey's not waiting by the phone. and i never thought i would have as much respect for graham as i have developed this year - he's really stuck to his principles, he and mccain, and even though i might not agree with them on policy, i can greatly respect them going against their despicable party.

From the asinine gold painted homes he lives in, to his "wealth", to his "smart family" it is all smoke and mirrors.His wife is nothing but a soft porn nude "model" who could not make it in the legitimate modeling world. He said she had two degrees and spoke 5 languages!! Not true, quietly removed that from her bio. Fake family, fake qualifications. No way could these con artists replace our wonderful Obamas.

    ● Be happy for Don the Con's short press conference with Don King.

    ● After you read this you will understand why.

    ● I remember reading about several commenters on IM talking about how lousy a speaker Don the Con is.

    ● Could this explain why he has been avoiding the press?

    ● He is starting to come across like Sarah Palin. Does he know anything?

    ● Does Don the Con hire people who knows and run things and he takes credit for their work?

    ● Just like the recent announcement about Sprint which Don the Con is taking credit for the 5,000 jobs which he had nothing to do with.

    ● Those 5,000 jobs were developing before Don the Con even knew about it.

    RNC communications director and future White House press secretary Sean Spicer told conservative talk radio host Hugh Hewitt on Thursday that President-elect Donald Trump could replace daily press conferences with more social media interaction, including Facebook “town halls,” and even more controversial, asking for feedback from Twitter users.

    1. let's crown him president of twitter then, and tell him to feck off white house property. and get a suit that fits while he's at it. and trash that awful red, taped tie. bruce wayne would never dress that way, and he's a real fake billionaire, too. because he can't face the grown-ups in the press, he'll have dumpster fire chats to modernise FDR's fireside radio chats, which my nana used to tell me about as she was a girl then. and the town halls will have carefully chosen people with assigned questions that he will answer from cue cards, if he does read, that is. why of why does he have to play house and president? it takes some ego to run for president - even just a little. but to do it the way he did it, especially since he is so under qualified, takes brain dysmorphic disorder, in which you think you're much more intelligent than you really are. what did he think, if president obama could do it, surely he could. that's a laugh and a cry in one very idiotic and disturbing thought. i still feel gutted about him taking office. i feel like i did post 9/11, living not far from nyc at the time, and going back in as soon as i could to make sure life kept going on in nyc. still, waking up, there was a moment for a long time that i would wake and think, holy shit what an awful nightmare. this feels similar, not to diminish the loss of lives that happened in the 2001 terrorist attack.

    Well before Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, I sent a holiday greeting to my friends that read: “These times are not business as usual. Wishing you the best in a troubled world.” Now I feel the need to share this message with the rest of the world. But before I do, I must tell you who I am and what I stand for.

    I am an 86-year-old Hungarian Jew who became a US citizen after the end of World War II. I learned at an early age how important it is what kind of political regime prevails. The formative experience of my life was the occupation of Hungary by Hitler’s Germany in 1944. I probably would have perished had my father not understood the gravity of the situation. He arranged false identities for his family and for many other Jews; with his help, most survived.
    The Year Ahead 2017 Cover Image

    In 1947, I escaped from Hungary, by then under Communist rule, to England. As a student at the London School of Economics, I came under the influence of the philosopher Karl Popper, and I developed my own philosophy, built on the twin pillars of fallibility and reflexivity. I distinguished between two kinds of political regimes: those in which people elected their leaders, who were then supposed to look after the interests of the electorate, and others where the rulers sought to manipulate their subjects to serve the rulers’ interests. Under Popper’s influence, I called the first kind of society open, the second, closed.

    The classification is too simplistic. There are many degrees and variations throughout history, from well-functioning models to failed states, and many different levels of government in any particular situation. Even so, I find the distinction between the two regime types useful. I became an active promoter of the former and opponent of the latter.

    I find the current moment in history very painful.

  26. Charlatan Evangelist is going to pray at Trump's Inauguration. Bet she gets more than $115 for the gig.

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/paula-white-donald-trump-inauguration_us_58652b51e4b0de3a08f76147

    "A televangelist who encourages her followers to get closer to God by sending money to her has been invited to Donald Trump’s inauguration.

    Paula White spent much of the 2016 presidential campaign convincing evangelicals to vote for Trump, assuring them that he “accepts Jesus as his Lord and savior,” she told Politico. Now she’ll be praying with Trump at his inauguration."

    "In 2007, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) launched a congressional probe into the spending habits of White’s ministry, along with five other pastors. Grassley had questions regarding the televangelists’ use of church-owned airplanes and luxury homes. The Senate inquiry was eventually dropped, in part because White refused to cooperate with investigators.

    Years later, White declared bankruptcy on the church she initially ran with her then-husband that had been the subject of the probe, Politico reported."

  28. First it was the Rockettes (who coincidentally only performed at Republican inaugurations.)

    Now it's the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

    Okay. Let's set aside the fact that Donald Trump would invite Lawrence Welk if he were still alive. This is an inauguration for old fogies.

    http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/printfriendly.csp?id=4762845

    " “Participation in the choir, including the performance at the Inauguration, is voluntary,” church spokesman Eric Hawkins reiterated in a statement Thursday. “Only a limited number of choir members are participating (the number is limited by the inaugural committee), and none are required to participate.”"

    Where have we heard *that* before?

    "The choir previously sang at swearing-in ceremonies for George H. W. Bush (1989), Richard Nixon (1969) and Lyndon Johnson (1965). It performed in inaugural parades for George W. Bush (2001), George H. W. Bush (1989) and Ronald Reagan (1981)."

    "Response to the choir’s appearance “has been mixed, with people expressing both opposition and support,” Hawkins said last week in a prepared statement.

    The choir’s long tradition of performing for presidents “is not an implied support of party affiliations or politics,” he said. “It is a demonstration of our support for freedom, civility and the peaceful transition of power.”"

    Really? Then why do you only perform at fucking Republican inaugurations you hypocritical douchebag? Oh, forgive me. Johnson. That was...50 years ago! And that was the swearing in ceremony. 1 out of 5 and 50 years ago. Not one Democratic President since.

    http://www.deseretnews.com/article/865669773/Mormon-Tabernacle-Choir-to-perform-at-Trump-inauguration.html

    "“Response to the announcement has been mixed, with people expressing both opposition and support," church spokesman Eric Hawkins said in a statement. "The choir's participation continues its long tradition of performing for U.S. presidents of both parties at inaugurations and in other settings, and is not an implied support of party affiliations or politics. It is a demonstration of our support for freedom, civility and the peaceful transition of power.”"

    Again, Eric. You have to go back 50 years in order to include both parties. ONE Democrat.

    "The choir has been a regular at presidential inaugurations for more than half a century, performing at five for presidents of both parties."

    There's lies, damned lies and there's statistic. That statement really makes it sound like they are non-partisan, doesn't it?
