LIVE VIDEO: White House Press Briefing

Patch reports:

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will deliver a press briefing Tuesday afternoon at 1:45 Eastern. In recent days, President Trump has feuded with Republican Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, who has said that the White House is “adult day care.” Multiple reports also suggest that he is still fuming about and NBC article last week that found Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, whom Trump is having lunch with Tuesday, called him a “moron.”

  • Gustav2

    “Does Rex Tillerson REALLY have the “full confidence of Trump” like all the others just before they were fired?”

  • bkmn

    I wonder how many boxes of Snickers Sarah keeps in her office.

    • Gustav2

      Now you made me go to my stash and get a Snickers.

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      Pork Cops have a eat by date. She’s never thrown one out.

    • greenmanTN

      Not as many snickers as her outfits get from the press pool.

      • Rambie

        The alternating line patters is to distract from the bull-shite coming out of her mouth.

    • Lazycrockett

      She keeps them frozen so she can gnaw at them during the briefing.

  • She’s not wearing that blouse again, is she? Jeez – she looks like a convict in an old timey movie.

    • Gustav2

      That’s just JMG’s fav pic.

  • JWC

    Sarah should be mostly thankful to a boss who so graciously provides her with an over adequate supply of bullshit and lies daily

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Remember Sarah, god hates liars.

    • JWC

      but GAWD loves Trump ,don’t he/she What a dichotmy

    • Charlie

      I stopped watching her press briefings a long time ago. She never has anything of substance to say and she never gives a straight answer to any question. She is just there to defend trump just like Kellyanne Conway.

    • TrollopeReader

      but daddy is a (fake) pastor, and he lies alll the time … and commits gluttony.

  • crewman

    North Korea has stolen potential war plans, and the President has laser focus on the big issue of the day — whether his Secretary of State thinks he is a moron.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Sarah, have you seen the President’s IQ ?

    • JWC

      She van only count to 20 so It must be High

    • Lazycrockett

      “We haven’t discussed that.”

    • justme

      Were still looking for it…

  • Treant

    No. Let me know if Trump quits, but other than that I get greater coherence out of my niece’s old See ‘n’ Say toy.

    The cow says, “We have not discussed that.”

  • David Walker

    We still have some time, folks, so here we go…

    • greenmanTN

      I saw that earlier. Very funny!

      “Donald Trump is….. not a cannibal.”

      • Treant

        Are we sure about that? I heard he’d eaten his daughter.

        (ba-dump-tssssh)

        • Paula

          You just had to go there! 😄

          • Treant

            Honestly. Was there any doubt I wouldn’t go there?

    • justme

      Come on Jon you know the rules 140 characters per statement..
      Donnie can’t handle the big words or the long thoughts…

    • Ross

      That was really good. Thank you!

  • Lazycrockett

    Not tonight Bertha.

    OT
    Here’s some cheerful news

    Greece passes gender-change law opposed by Orthodox church
    – Alexis Tsipras rallies parliament to endorse policies permitting people to change gender on official documents without sterilisation
    The law, which was passed with 171 votes in favour and 114 against, had
    exposed political divisions and entrenched beliefs in one of Europe’s most socially conservative societies. It will allow trans individuals to affirm their desired gender from the age of 15 and brings Greece in line with most EU member states. Greece joins Denmark, Ireland, Malta and Norway in adopting legislation that requires neither psychiatric diagnosis nor medical intervention to determine gender recognition.
    The Greek Orthodox church denounced the legislation as “a satanic deed” that would lead to “the destruction of social cohesion and the spiritual necrosis of man”.
    Bishops, echoing the view of the neo-fascist Golden Dawn party, argued that the law had an ulterior aim: to allow same-sex couples to adopt children. “The ultimate goal of this law is to allow homosexuals to adopt children,” Metropolitan Nicholas of Phthiotis told parishioners. The Holy Synod, the church’s governing body, claimed the law would “destroy human beings”.

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/oct/10/greece-passes-gender-change-law

    • Gustav2

      Spiritual necrosis? There is an ointment for that! I just saw an ad for it on TV.

      • ChrisMorley

        At least it’s an original, Greek disaster.

        • Paula

          Wouldn’t it be more like a Greek Tragedy?

          • jerry

            Aeschylus agrees: it’s a tragedy in three parts.

    • The_Wretched

      “gender on official documents without sterilisation[sic]”

      Which is straight up just cruelty. The vast majority of trans* folks (and anyone LGBTQ for that matter) have hetero parents. AND the vast majority of the kids of trans* parents are going to not be trans*.

    COULD SOMEONE TELL SARAH THERE’S CUSTOMERS IN HER SECTION!?!?!

  • Paula

    Awww, its Debbie Downer talking, again!

    I’ll coordinate it with my nap time.

      I like it, but I see soon-to-be-moldy pillows….

    • Tomcat

      Would not last long in Tennessee.

      • Ragnar Lothbrok

        Here either. I think they are in S Cal.

        • Tomcat

          Or the desert areas.

    • Weird, but I feel bad for those people’s next door neighbors (i.e., parties, loud talking right outside). Really nice fix-up there though.

  • shellback
  • TrollopeReader

    Isn’t the “cross your heart” bra supposed to be under the blouse, not over it?

  • JWC

    Old dead eyed Sarah

  • Tomcat

    When trump told us we would find out about the coming storm I did not realize Kim would tell us the plan.

  • Tomcat

    65 comments, still no Sarah. My guess is the stolen plans to kill LiL Kim is holding her up a little.

  • Ronald Reagan is Dead!

    O/T NYT: Why Stanford Researchers Tried to Create a ‘Gaydar’ Machine
    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/09/science/stanford-sexual-orientation-study.html?em_pos=medium&emc=edit_sc_20171010&nl=science-times&nl_art=0&nlid=4646989&ref=headline&te=1

    I’ll wait for new developments before jumping on the outrage train. Here’s a quote from Nicholas Rule, a psychology professor at the University of Toronto:

    “Can artificial intelligence actually tell if you’re gay from your face? It feels weird — it feels like physiognomy,” he said.

    “I still personally sometimes feel uncomfortable, and I have to reconcile this as a scientist — but this is what the data shows,” said Dr. Rule, who is gay.

    • The_Wretched

      They should see if the AI can get similar results with various religions and atheism. that would validate that the machine doesn’t have false positives or that the gay finding isn’t a fluke. Similarly, other data sets in other labs with the same AI learning process should be able to reproduce the results if it’s real and not just an artifact.

      • greenmanTN

        They mention atheism as one of their possible projects, and yes it would demonstrate the validity of the “science” much better than sexuality, which is likely based on grooming choices instead of physiology. Both have the potential to be abused though.

        An interesting aside, the accuracy of the program goes way down if Facebook photos of gay men are used instead of dating profile photos.

        • The_Wretched

          I was wondering how much of their accuracy was based on something like eyebrow grooming. I could see something like gay men worry about it more than straight men. I agree they need to test the system against other data sets of gay men as well.

  • My question for the day: Is this kind of childishness and name-calling behavior at all fitting for a grown man, never mind someone who is President of the United States?

    https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/917734186848579584

    And a follow-up: Is he even sane? Seems like the dementia is advancing fast, building upon the well-known life-long pathological narcissism.

    • The_Wretched

      I don’t know how he keeps the ‘like a businessman’ label. Acting like this will get you removed at a decent company.

      • If he were a normal businessman, he’d have been fired long ago for malfeasance and rank incompetence. His entire life has been one seedy scam after another.

        Alas though, ‘Trump Organization’ is roughly a billion dollar version of the same LLC I own: Closely held, no shareholders, no board.

  • Bluto

    “incredibly strong leader” HAHAHAHAAAAAAAAA

  • Bluto

    “calm around the world” HAHAHAHAHAHHAAAAAAA

  • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

    “Entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts”

    Please retire that overused comment.

    • Tomcat

      But trump is entitled to altfacts.

      • TrollopeReader

        and artifacts, a la Kellyanne ….

  • Gods the laughing fucking grates on me. She’s not cute. The lying she is doing is not cute. This shit is life and death! STOP FUCKING LAUGHING LIKE THIS IS ANOTHER NORMAL DAY! 😡

  • Bluto
  • Trump has had zero impact on the UN and what countries are paying. Absolutely, concretely, none.

  • Bluto
  • Tomcat

    I see they are back on how well he is doing on ISIS. I heard CNN say the other day he would win points if he turned back to talking about that. Thanks CNN you suck up.

  • The_Wretched

    The oligarchs are not ‘the American People’.

    ‘The American People’ are not clamoring for the end of the ACA. Ending the ACA or causing it to fail is not ‘ending the suffering’.

  • Tomcat

    The Whitehouse press corp is sucking today. WTF.

  • Joe in PA

    I’m going to suggest to Randy Rainbow that he do a song parody “🎼She lies with the greatest of ease….” AKA The flying trapeze…

    • TrollopeReader

      …and the finest of fleas?

  • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

    Another thing to retire: Claiming your supporters speak for “the American people” in toto.

    • HZ81

      Right, she speaks for the dumb American people. Granted, there are tons, but…

  • HZ81

    Oh, snap. Kunt’s already on.

    So used to her being days late.

    God, that’s bright. Like a pink flamingo hit by a mack truck, smeared across its grille.

    • The_Wretched

      Magenta – the color that doesn’t exist. Lots of magenta.

      • She has to wear Blaze Magenta so some hunter doesn’t mistake her for a deer.

  • Gustav2

    What? Sarah and Trump lying?

  • Tomcat

    Nothing about LiL Kim having all our war plans and plans to kill him. Come on is that NOT important?

  • Tomcat

    I think the press corp has been bought.

  • HZ81

    The highest tax nation in the world? Not true.

    Sarah: No, its true when he says it in between the goal posts I moved.

    • Gustav2

      And the rate Corps actually pay in the US is not anywhere near the highest in the Western World.

      • Really getting tired of the constant, unrelenting lies from this malignant administration.

    • TrollopeReader

      now now, highest taxes and highest *corporate* taxes are like the same, okay!

    • The_Wretched

      And the % of the total tax revenue to the USFEDGOV that comes from companies has steadily dropped over time. Regardless of the ‘rate’, the total corp tax burden is dropping.

      • And what are these corporations doing with their windfalls?

        Raising wages? Hiring more employees? Improving benefits? NOPE!

        They’re sitting on huge piles of cash that they use to speculate in the derivatives markets and/or buying up other companies, all while paying their senior executives, board members, and CEOs obscene amounts of money.

  • Bluto

    alternative facts

  • TrollopeReader

    who the fu*k does her makeup? Ivana??

    • Bluto

      Sherwin Williams

  • Tomcat

    Thank you Sarah, Smooch, smooch, smooch.

  • HZ81

    Right, that; what sends jobs overseas. Not companies looking to pay poor people 1 dollar a week.

    Kunt.

  • Tomcat

    Everyone should stop vacationing EXCEPT trump.

  • HZ81

    yeah, gotta be hard to get ahead of Trump’s conversations. So deep.

  • HZ81

    The Senate needs to stop vacationing and start golfing!

  • TrollopeReader

    “stop taking vactions”? good one, Sarah. no irony there. nope.

  • Gustav2

    That is not what the Pres said, he said the NFL had a tax status it no longer does.

    • Joe in PA

      State dollars. Stupid fuck.

      • Gustav2

        Why do we simple folk know more about how this shit works than the preznit? The NFL is no longer set up as a nonprofit.

  • HZ81

    Her fake eyelashes could weigh down a rowboat. Ease up.

  • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

    Wait, what? The NFL used to be tax-exempt???

    • Actually, yes.

    • Gustav2

      Yes. they gave it up when it became untenable to you know, regular folk.

      • TrollopeReader

        and then they’d threaten the regular folk with moving, so the regular folk could buy the billionaires new stadia !!

    • The_Wretched

      Baseball has a special exemption from anti-trust.

  • The_Wretched

    Trashing things is not ‘a better deal’. Time to put that lie away. It just flags that you’re spouting BS.

  • HZ81

    The VP is a stunt queen. Mary knows how to make a scene.

    Next question!

  • Tomcat

    Screw this bullshit show. turning channel to something not fake news.

    • I can no longer watch. So I’ve stopped entirely even trying.

      • Gustav2

        It is over.

        • You have my condolences and sincere sympathy for enduring the experience.

          • Gustav2

            Putting the kettle on…

      • The_Wretched

        She’s wrong on every ‘fact’ she states and misleading on the rest of it. Dressed on top are her emotional issues and weird posturing. We’re all dumber for listening.

  • HZ81

    Drain the swamp. Still? Really, Sarah?

  • Bryan

    Literally awful.

  • HZ81

    So tried of discussions about the leader of the free world’s bitchy tween tweets.

  • MassageBear

    Snarky bitch!
    So professional.

  • Joe in PA

    Spin it girl.

  • Gustav2

    That means Tillerson is being shown the door.

    • ByronK

      And it looks like he’s being replaced by that nutjob scumbag Bolton.

      • billbear1961

        Oh, my God.

        • Gustav2

          Is it too late to build a bomb shelter?

        Going from bad to the worst.

        Seriously? Wasn’t he in the running the first go around? Jesus Christ these people are insane. We’re ever the more fucked.

  • Joe in PA

    Double fuck you Sarah.

  • HZ81

    Get a sense of humor, nerds!!!

  • Bryan

    “Get a sense of humor!” says the humorless spokesperson…

        She sure can fake gravitas.

  • darren lyle
  • The_Wretched

    She smiles when she recites trolling lines.

    • Joe in PA

      Exactly…I noticed that. She thinks she’s being oh-so-clever.

      Bring back Spicey!

  • Bluto

    miserable, insufferable bitch

  • HZ81

    We’ll be here the rest of the day to answer questions?

    Um, no you won;t be, Kunters.

    And another shameful page is American history is turned.

  • Joe in PA
    • billbear1961

      Who in that regime ISN’T??

      • Joe in PA

        Ain’t that the truth!

        [[Waves hi Mister Bear!]]

  • Tomcat

    Sarah will have to leave there and go straight to a prayer circle for comfort after all her lies.

  • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

    If the president is going to be mixing jokes and serious comments on Twitter, he needs to learn how to use “LOL” or emojis instead of leaving Sara H. Sanders to insult the media for not knowing the difference.

    • Most *children* also outgrow the kind of behavior he indulges in regularly.

    • Vira

      Jethrine Huckleberry is the human emoji for stupidity.

    How’s the fucking EVIL moron today, Sanders?

    I mean the “president,” not you.

  • Robert Schaaf

    Would somebody please do some Photoshop on Sarah Huckabee Sanders so we can see what she’d look like as a normal person?
