LIVE VIDEO: White House Press Briefing

CBS News provides likely topics:

Gold Star controversy: White House chief of staff John Kelly’s stirring statements in the White House press briefing room Thursday still has not put to rest the controversy over President Trump’s call to the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, and questions linger about how Johnson and four other troops died in Niger. The FBI is now involved in determining what happened.

Budget deal: The Senate passed a $4 trillion budget blueprint on Thursday night, by a 51-49 vote.

Obamacare deal: Two key Republican and Democratic senators joined in announcing a plan Tuesday aimed at stabilizing America’s health insurance markets in the wake of Mr. Trump’s order to terminate Obamacare subsidies to insurers. At first, Mr. Trump approved of it, but later changed his mind about supporting the plan.

    Title Correction, Today’s White House deflection, denial and question dodging session.

  • billbear1961

    Why are those soldiers dead, LIAR?

  • I can’t watch live anymore. My fury becomes uncontrollable.

    • Lumpy Gaga

      Husbot thoughtfully DVR’ed the entire “Sacred Kelly”/”New Pickles” one-two for me to watch last night.

      I have to say, sometimes just reading the descriptions doesn’t cut it. Yeah, your head gets to throbbing about every 12 seconds, but …

    • yes b’y

      My wife asks me not to scream at the tv, when she is on the phone.

      • Adam King

        She could avoid using the phone when you’re watching the teevee…

        • yes b’y

          but I’ve been watching it non stop since before the election. I’m so ashamed to say.

          • Adam King

            Okay now I’m on her side and concerned for your sanity.

          • yes b’y

            hahahaha

  • HoneyBoySmith

    Is Hucky Boo Boo wearing more makeup lately?

    • Jeffrey

      SO much

    • Max_1

      The mores the whores…

  • Treant

    That photo is The Pepto Bismol Princess.

    • netxtown

      with just a dabble of cleavage to woo the boys at home…..

      • Treant

        A little dab, she’ll do you.

    • Tawreos

      I had the same thought when I saw that outfit except it went “It looks like a bottle of pepto bismal exploded all over her” in M’Lynn’s voice.

  • netxtown

    I’d take an ice pick to my balls before i let this bitch on my screen…

  • KCMC
  • DreadPikathulhu

    I just can’t take her today. I’ll read along with the witty posters here.

    • KCMC

      like not-surprise shart.

      • Lumpy Gaga

        “Yeah, I knew it was coming. I let it. Deal.”

    • crewman

      I think SNL made her too likable and too harmless.

  • Jeffrey

    Did we catch her in the middle of a Glamor Shots shoot?

  • Lazycrockett

    Deny Deny Deny. The press hates America. We have not discussed that. Liar Liar Liar.

  • Max_1

    Moar evening makeup…
    … ‘Cuz the smoky eye isn’t heavy enough.

    Or is this what lipstick looks like on a pig?

  • Karl Dubhe

    So, I’ve read, but not actually seen, that there’s a rumor going around on twitter that SHS will be hungover, or drunk, at today’s Follies.

    Doubt it’s true, but it’s more likely than anything she’ll say. (swishes away…)

  • Michael R
  • Bluto
    • Treant

      And her Cross Your Black Heart Bra-Sweater.

      • Christopher

        That used to belong to her father. You can tell because it’s all stretched out in the bust.

  • Karl Dubhe

    i think that video ended already, without a press conference.

    If so, it’s her best one yet.

    • Bluto

      naw she’s always 30-45 minutes late.

      • Karl Dubhe

        Damn.

        Damn, damn, damn…

      • Dagoril

        She thinks she’s Madonna!

    • another_steve

      I don’t watch her, Karl. I have enough of a challenge working up an erection, these days.

      I don’t need her – the ultimate boner-killer.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Hey Sarah, Let us count the lies you told just yesterday.
    WE may have to STONE you !

  • JWC

    Run people here come Little LULU

  • Lazycrockett

    Shout out to Hope Hicks the best bj er in the Oval Office.

    • JWC

      Hope is under Donny’s desk

      • Gustav2

        Any office with Donnie in it has no Hope.

        • JWC

          Oh yes there is definitely that

  • Gustav2
  • JoeMyGod

    The White House posted the wrong clip. I’ve posted NBC’s feed now. Refresh.

    • Karl Dubhe

      Good to know they’re so professional.

      We’re all gonna die.

    • Gustav2

      The bestest WH staff EVAH!

    • Lumpy Gaga

      Oh, White House. Is there anything you CAN do?

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    What a bland top

  • Megrim Twist

    How bleak was my press conference?

    • SammySeattle

      See how the words just cling to one another. “How bleak was my press conference!!”

  • Lazycrockett

    So bitch just repeats the lie that Kelly told yesterday.

  • kanehau

    Stunned. DRINK!

  • Gustav2

    She just lied about what Kelly said.

    • sfjohn

      of course she did

  • Gustav2

    Now the video is wrong.

  • Tawreos

    Is she going to a funeral afterwards? Or is it just to mourn the passing of General Kelly’s integrity?

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    WE are stunned every day Sarah

  • Lazycrockett

    “Many people” STFU Bitch.

  • Gustav2

    HE LIED! FUCK HIS STARS

    Just so we all understand, 4 star Marine generals are permitted to lie.

  • Karl Dubhe

    Mocking the lady’s hat? Isn’t Sarah the one to throw stones?

  • Lazycrockett

    Then bring him out you skank whore.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    NO No Sarah, You are doing this wrong.

  • Karl Dubhe

    Sure, I’ll debate a general. Why not?

    Especially if the topic is on something the man clearly knows nothing about.

    • Gustav2

      He works for me, I do not work for him.

      • Karl Dubhe

        Well, he doesn’t work for me…

        But I’m shameless in a good way. (really, I am.)

  • Snarky
  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Why is the camera not showing the reporters today

    • Snarky

      I don’t know what channel you’re on, but they’re showing reporters and Sanders both on MSNBC

      • The_Wretched

        NBC feed Joe put up is SHS only.

      • Ragnar Lothbrok

        Joe’s feed

        • Snarky

          WH provides a feed that is always on the podium for media to stream/cut/use as they want. That is the feed Joe is using. The camera is fixed.

  • sfjohn

    she’s so full of shit……………..

    • Treant

      Well, that explains the restrictive outfit.

  • Lazycrockett
    • Basically the WH position is we’re not allowed to question our leaders anymore, even when they’re caught in blatant lies.

      I notice also that they’re always allowed to invoke “he’s the president” or “he’s a 4 star general” as if that makes their speech more valued than that of anybody else.

      • Karl Dubhe

        It’s like none of them have lived in a free society in their lives. Sorta like they’re from a foreign nation. Even to Canucks they don’t seem ‘right’, not right at all. 🙁

        • Tawreos

          They are practicing for their return to Mother Russia

        • Oh, they’ve lived in a free society.

          They just want to bring it to an end, with them in charge of everything remaining.

    • The_Wretched

      Lies and factual errors are lies and factual errors regardless of who makes them.

      Reality does not get passed.

    • greenmanTN
    • Leo
  • Megrim Twist

    This is horrifying.

    • Karl Dubhe

      Wait until they change subjects…

      Goddess help us all…

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Maybe it would help if she put a flower in her hair

    • Karl Dubhe

      Some flour would work better.

      • BearEyes

        the flour sack

    • Treant

      Maybe it would help if she put a ball gag in her mouth. I wouldn’t have to hear the lies.

      • Tawreos

        She would be just as effective in doing her job

    • Dagoril

      Not even a bag over her head would help.

  • another_steve

    Oh thank heavens…

    …not the striped white schmata.

  • JoeMyGod

    FWIW, this is the 62nd time I’ve posted the White House press briefing using this headline and probably about the 80th time in total. During Obama’s 8 years in office, it looks like I posted live press briefings 14 times. Because we weren’t being lied to.

    • The_Wretched

      9 months vs 8 years as well.

    • Megrim Twist

      Wow.

    • JoeMyGod

      The times I posted Obama’s press briefings the news of those days was DADT, DOMA, Obergefell, the Hate Crimes Act, and Bin Laden’s death.

  • Treant

    Honestly, does anybody believe this shit from her any longer? And why aren’t the reporters, at long last, finally letting her have it for lying? Oh, right, access. I guess that does make some sense…

    • Dagoril

      Yeah, but is there any value at all in having access to someone who lies about everything? What’s the point?

      • The_Wretched

        It’s like auto racing. You’re there for the disaster moments when they randomly happen.

    • thatotherjean

      It’s much less objectionable than whatever her other choices were likely to be. Somebody told her that pearls go with everything, and she believed them. Either that, or she’s channeling Barbara Bush.

  • PickyPeckersaurus
  • Lazycrockett

    I would give a journalist 5 dollars if one of them told her to “smile”.

  • Leo

    Just joined, based on comments so far seems a mess. Hmm k.

  • Leo

    Sarah sounds nervous.

  • Leo

    Ouu good questions.

  • Megrim Twist
  • melllt

    Full and accurate picture? Lol

  • Leo

    Trump started it and made it political you disingenuous creature.

  • KCMC

    why does her active listening face look like toddler forcing out deuce/old person being struck by stroke?

    • Snarky

      It’s Walmart’s Resting Bitch Face Halloween mask.

  • Lazycrockett

    She is pissy, so she’s gonna bail soon.

    • Bluto

      When is she not pissy?

    • Snarky

      Honest question, how can you tell? It always seems to me that she is overtly behaving like this entire process is somehow beneath her, and she’s angry at having to answer to the people in the room (and, by extension, the rest of the world, which is relying on their reporting).

  • HZ81

    Waaah, the leader of the free world gets covered on the news.

    • BearEyes

      Angela Merkel

  • melllt

    It continued because his statement was crap

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Stop scolding ! Such a bitch !!

  • HZ81

    Right Trump jump to conclusions? Crazy talk.

  • Karl Dubhe

    Her voice is really shaky. If you don’t watch, but just listen, the tone cracks and grates. I’m surprised she’s never had any voice coaching.

    • Leo

      More so than usual today having seen way too many of these.

    • Tawreos

      She has it used to be grunts and whistles

  • HZ81

    I’m not going to talk facts.

    • KCMC

      ever

  • Bluto
    • Lumpy Gaga

      “Am I funny to you?”

  • See what I mean? This is fascism, where one isn’t allowed to question the LIES from a man just because he happens to have been a general (or President).

    • DreadPikathulhu

      Absolutely horrifying.

    • It is not ‘inappropriate’ to disagree with anybody when they’re lying to you.

  • Leo

    Fuck taking the high road. I want the Benghazi treatment for Niger.

    Years of hearings and show trials.

  • Lazycrockett

    I hope she suffers from constipation.

    • Snarkaholic

      Well, considering the dog-to-vegetables ratio of her diet, I’d say it’s a given.

    • Dreaming Vertebrate

      She might have inserted her butt plug too far!
      But ya’ gotta do whatever Donnie the Pervert says if ya’ wanna keep your job in the Oval Office.

  • Adam King

    “Moo. MOOOOO!!”

    Ha, obey.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Power ?

    • HZ81

      So even her kids think Grimace in Pearls is an asshole.

  • safari

    Personal OT: I just walked into work. My office is flooded. :-0

    • Tawreos

      I wish I had that in my office right now.

      • Lizard

        I wish I had an office right now…

    • Leo

      Oh no! 🙁

    • HZ81

      Hope you and it end up okay.

      • safari

        Thanks. It looks like my tech didn’t get wet, but who knows. I just hope they don’t have to replace the drywall or something since it flooded four offices and a conference room.

        • Snarky

          Yikes. Weather? Or plumbing?

          • safari

            Plumbing.

          • Snarky

            Ugh. Just give it two weeks and Trump will be right over to throw you some paper towels.

        • BearEyes

          anytime drywall gets wet, it needs to be replaced – otherwise you end up with mold and that’s worse.

          • safari

            *sigh*

          • BearEyes

            sorry – but it doesn’t really dry out well and retains some moisture.

        • Adam King

          Thanks, Obama!

    • Snarky

      WTH! Hope you’re ok and any personal items of yours are unharmed.

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      Get out of there !

    • Lumpy Gaga

      BTDT. Spent a week with screaming dehumidifiers and fans in my office. And then mold abatement.

      Biggest loss: basically, any notes/documentation that I had handwritten with ink, and did not have shelved properly. Laser-printed stuff, OTOH, just got crinkly then stinky and on its way to moldy. But still 100% legible as the day it was printed.

    • Lumpy Gaga

      GIFs! GIFs! GIFs!

      • safari

        Right now all my office stuff is in the hallway, the power was cut to the overhead lights… so it’s a dark office with the ceiling tiles removed.

        • PickyPeckersaurus

          Ugh. It’s Friday. Throw your hands up in the air and say ‘fuck it!’ Then go home.

  • Gustav2

    When the WH says a story is over, the story is over.

    Jesus.

    • The_Wretched

      Ordering everyone what to think and say. Nothing like Gilead, nope.

      If that was true then Mueller would have been done a long time ago

  • Lazycrockett

      Producers on MSNBC/CNN chyron have been in fuck it mode since July.

        Along with the rest of America, apparently.

      • another_steve

        How can they keep up? Another horror every hour.

        Whoever’s in charge of their chyrons deserves a medal.

  • melllt

    If just one reporter that she moves onto in order to avoid a question would be like, nah, I’ll give up my time if you answer that last question i would like this press Corp better.

    • Lazycrockett

      She has never liked nazis especially the ones related to her.

  • Karl Dubhe

    We still want a state visit with the Queen. Even though she’s likely said “fuck that shit. I’ve not lived this long to meet up with another Nazi goon like him.”

    In the most cultured and refined of ways, of course.

    • Gustav2

      She would say it in German, French or Russian.

    • Tawreos

      I picture an angry over the top of the glasses stare at whoever brought it up.

  • Lars Littlefield

    There is a Beryl Reid-ish Killing of Sister George thing about her. Sort of a bovine essence. I just can’t put my finger on it. Nor would I want to. Ewwwwww!

  • Bluto
    • PickyPeckersaurus

    I really really want her head on a pike.

  • HZ81

    And with that, run away!!!!

    • Lazycrockett

      There’s birthday cake back there.

  • Leo

    More questions than answers, round 71.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    They aren’t even yelling for questions anymore as she trots off.

    • Karl Dubhe

      They’ve learned she’ll not answer what they ask.

      If they were wise, they’d start to go thru their trash. Imagine what they toss out into their recycling bins. I’ll bet they don’t check carefully enough about who’s hauling it away.

      They could get a hell of a scoop.

  • Gustav2

    MSNBC now going about Laura Trump as a liar.

    • Lazycrockett
      • Treant

        But those calls are a sacred thing! She should be hung up for reading that transcript, which is only between our God-given President and the lowly widow of color!

        Or the bitch is lying. You figure out which is more likely.

        Update on the “Time to make the Donuts” commercial:

        [Morning alarm rings well before dawn.]
        [WH staffers across the DC Metro area struggle out of bed, saying “Time to attack the dead soldiers’ families…”]

    • Of course she is. To be associated with Donald in any way, shape, or capacity, one either must already be a shameless, bald-faced liar or quickly acquire the skill to lie ridiculously and compulsively.

  • Durwood
    • Lumpy Gaga

      ^^^ Many upvotes!

  • Leo

    Kelly’s a coward for not coming back to answer to Rep. Wilson. Using his dead son to attack the family of another by default brings us to a new low.

    • Snarky

      You’re are so right. Breathtaking, considering that we have been in “every day is a new low” mode since January.

  • Pluto Animus

    Either Kelly is a liar to the bone…

    Or he is crazy like a fox and actually wanted to be caught, to damage the credibility of the whole bunch of White House lies on this event.

    Yeah, sounds crazy, but it could be true.

    • Lizard

      I doubt it. You don’t get to be a general by being that self-sacrificing. You get there by being politically ruthless.

    • No, he’s a liar like the rest of him.

      ICE and CBP going all jackboot on immigrants? That was Kelly’s doing as head of DHS.

      We were fools ever to think the ‘adults’ would save us.

      • -M-

        The Hoarse Whisperer @hoarsewhisperer on twitter argues that the only way to remain in a position to somewhat temper or guide someone with Trump’s narcissistic personality disorder is to never let them see you criticize them for anything. It still seems to me like Kelly’s attacks went beyond what’s required for that, unless of course Trump had told him to go after Wilson and the press like that. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

  • Fascist Trump administration says we’re not allowed to question John Kelly because he was a 4-star general, even when what he says is demonstrably, provably untrue.
    https://twitter.com/DKThomp/status/921446600240713730

    That’s a right, apparently reserved to Donald himself.

    There. Is. Always. A. Tweet.

    • The_Wretched

      Time to coin an “internet rule” for Trump “how is there always”. Rule 34 is taken so it’ll have to be another number.

    “If you want to go after Gen. Kelly, that’s up to you,” Sanders said. “But I think that, if you want to get into a debate with a four-star Marine general, I think that that’s something highly inappropriate.”

    I so wish this was The Onion.
    “It is unpatriotic enough to accuse a four-star general of lying,”
    Sanders told the White House press corps. “But to make available a video
    that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that that general lied is
    unpatriotic bordering on treasonous.”
