LIVE VIDEO: White House Press Briefing

Now underway. CNBC reports:

White House press secretary Sean Spicer holds his daily briefing Tuesday following President Donald Trump’s call for a “shutdown” in September. Trump lashed out about Senate rules in a pair of tweets Tuesday morning as he digested the bipartisan funding deal that is expected to keep the government running this week. He said the U.S. “needs” a “good ‘shutdown'” when the funding plan would expire in September to fix what he called a “mess.”

    Hmm Hillary or Spicer gonna be interesting to see who cable chooses.

    • The_Wretched

      I still can’t get over him looking nearly human. It’s like he’s the android in a Ridley Scott movie.

      • greenmanTN

        The uncanny valley isn’t just for robots anymore.

  • clay

    Who’s our pool reporter? I’m only here for the snark.

  • bambinoitaliano

    Why even call press briefing? Bullshit of the week brought to you by former faux Easter Bunny.

  • Joe in PA

    This is mostly O/T, but I have some sad news: @PickyPecker has gone to the dark side. Sad! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/41384899c6cee591ddc48e6914cfe05014cabbf268603d9b7e69f115b85106fe.png

  • melllt

    Welcome to my press conference. I don’t want to answer too many questions, so here are not one, but two idgets, who should just hold their own press conferences

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    I hate this fucker

    • billbear1961

      Don’t know if there’s anyone in this regime–or the GOP–I don’t hate.

      • Christopher

        I’ve spent a lifetime trying desperately not to hate anyone.

        Well, except for Hitler, Stalin, Mao Zedong, Pol Pot, Mugabe, and anyone else who fits into the category of “Despicable People Who Should’ve just Been Swallowed and/or Aborted”.

        Oddly enough, it’s kind of a long list.

        Anywho…I guess since I’ve kept the list quite exclusive for all of these years, I’m now allowed to hate the entire Cheetolini Regime.

  • Jack

    What a shame the Constitution calls for each House of Congress to devise its own rules. This separation of powers [email protected] is a [email protected]

  • Max_1
  • melllt

    I’m such an asshole, I can’t believe my wife is still married to me. Hahaha. Republican humor

    • Mark Ross

      I think he was serious. He is such an asshole that I’m really surprised that anyone would marry him in the first place.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Talk faster !!

    • Adam King

      Maybe he’s low on coke.

      • Christopher

        This administration is so horrible that even drug dealers are like…

        “Nah man! I ain’t goin’ anywhere near those whack jobs! I’ve got a reputation to uphold.”

  • melllt

    Who is this guy

  • S. Tyler Hoffman

    This guys attitude is terrible. If you’ve got info to get out then do it like a professional. Patronizing a-hole…

  • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

    This guy is smarmy and obnoxious, spending his whole time attacking the democrats.

  • melllt

    Trump is a winner.

  • melllt

    If I yell and talk quickly what I say is believable.

    • clay

      At work, when the admin want to role out a new policy without question or comment, they ALWAYS have the fast talker with a heavy Russian accent present it. True story.

  • Gustav2

    The language in the bill prohibits ‘The Wall’ stop it.

  • Gustav2

    “We don’t like how the government works!!!!!!!1111!!!!”

    • clay

      (it makes them look lazy)

  • Gustav2

    Shut downs do not fix government, never have.

  • Lazycrockett

    Interesting CNN and MSNBC are still covering Hillary.

    • billbear1961

      Had their priorities only been like that BEFORE Election Day!

  • Gustav2
  • Gustav2

    Your priorities were not funded.

    • melllt

      But, but, look at this picture of the wall thing something somewhere at sometime. Look at the picture

      • Gustav2

        A wall that was started before this new funding? It’s Obama’s Wall!

        lol

  • Gustav2

    And the moon shoot was filmed in the Nevada desert.

    • billbear1961

      I knew it!

      :O

  • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

    He doesn’t know where, but it’s being installed today. How can he not know where?

    • Gustav2

      Because it is a magic wall!

  • Lazycrockett

    RR never wanted a wall.

  • Gustav2

    Because addiction is sooooo much different in different states?

    • clay

      political will and expression is so much different in different states.

  • safari

    “We don’t want to have a discussion about a shutdown”

    Yet, the president just tweeted about having one.

  • Gustav2

    Seeeeaaaaan!

    • billbear1961

      Seeeeeaaaan, go to hell!

  • Cuberly
    • Treant

      Oh, I’ve got plenty to say, but much of it involves a word we’re not allowed to use around here.

      The part I can say is that, just perhaps, she should convince her father-husband to do a bit less “life” and a bit more “work.” Good bloody luck with that.

    • clay

      such a role model
      such an exemplar
      a true modern feminist

      I bet she STILL has never pulled an all-nighter

      • Cuberly

        Hey now, keeping those sweat shop costs as low as possible is hard work!

    • Boreal

      What work has this skank ever done?

    • That_Looks_Delicious

      Aw, that’s as sad as a picnic.

    • The_Wretched

      Covering for daddy and keeping him serviced is a full time job. I guess she never planned on being Part II of the US Presidency.

    • Rick

      “Work.”

      • thatotherjean

        Hey, now! It requires effort to look at all those other designers’ clothes and shoes and accessories and jewelry, and figure out which ones to steal.

    • Christopher

      I’m sure there’s a teeny tiny violin playing for her somewhere.

      I do not know where, and quite honestly I don’t care.

      You’ll have to excuse me if I don’t give a flying Fig Newton that a “Silver Spoon” is having an issue balancing their work/home life.

      Boo fucking hoo!

      This harpy can eat shit and bark at the moon for all I care.

    • CB

      Like most Americans trying to do well today, you festering pustule.

  • billbear1961

    The mess is you, JACKASS.

  • TJ

    If he really wanted a shut down he could just veto the plan they passed. But like all conservatives he’s a coward and backs down easily.

    • Treant

      It won’t be the right time until September, you see ’cause…er…um…Obamacare will totally have collapsed by then! And we’ll be at war with…that is, I’m sure we’ll have a deal with North Korea by that point and…

      Oh, fuck off, you’ll be tired of all the winning, you little liberal shit.

      🙂

  • WH’s actual outrage? The fact Donald and his sociopathic “slash everything to the bone and beyond…except for DoD” insane budget were ignore in favor of the GOP & Dems negotiating with each other in good faith to keep America’s federal government running.

    They still haven’t understood that in order to be taken seriously, one has to behave seriously.

    Here is something much more interesting to watch.

    • Lazycrockett

      Twitter winner of the Day.

  • dogdadny
  • Christopher

    Anyone else think that Spicy Sphincter is a big fan of S&M?

    I mean, come on, who else would voluntarily take/hurl this kind of abuse on a daily basis?

    • The_Wretched

      hard to say, much of the right wing authoritarian mindset revolves around non-consensual ritualized abuse.

  • TexasBoy

    Next Up: Trump comments on Government shutdown…
    “National parks are a waste of money, I’m sure real American would rather have a border wall. We can deploy the former park rangers as border patrol. And if those lazy elderly people want their government Social Security and Medicare, they need to do exactly as I say. “

  • David

    Has Bernie Sanders apologized to the entire planet yet for being so personally instrumental is getting Trump elected POTUS??

    • The_Wretched

      Running against Hillary was an original sin?

      • Treant

        Tut, tut. That’s out of context and no, running against Hillary wasn’t an original sin.

        Being a fucking dick about it is another story. Stealing her data was merely a crime.

  • And again I have to say this: If the ENTIRE press pool just got up and walked out Spicey this bullshit might end.

    Oh, who am I kidding? (a) it would never happen and (b) if it did, it would be 45’s excuse just to stop talking to the press altogether.
