    Trump is giving a major news conference live on Al Jazeera & taking questions from reporters. It’s a stellar performance. Every question is being answered – just had to laugh, one reporter did that thing where they get picked & launched into about 3 or 4 questions. Trump griited his jaw and said “got any more?” before he answered.

    He has just refused, repeatedly, to give a reporter from some reporter, because “I am not giving you a question – you are fake news, your organistion, you are fake news”.

    😡 He has just refused, repeatedly, to give a reporter from some AGENCY a question, because “I am not giving you a question – you are fake news, your organistion, you are fake news”.

    (Sorry, overcome with excitement I think.)

    He is slamming intelligence agencies for releasing intelligence to the media vis leaks now.

        Thank you, no, I have already had a coffee. PS: His Magnificence was resplendent in a taikored blue suit, white shirt & red tie, and gesticulated frequently ave les petite mains.

          * tailored * avec. The editor has just threatened to fire this reporter if his proof-reading does not improve.

            PS: This reporter had been told to pack up his desk after the editor viewed newsclips & noticed His Magnificence’s suit is black, not blue. His first words were “fake news – you’re fired”.
