LIVE VIDEO: White House Press Briefing

CBS News reports:

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will address the press today during an on-camera briefing scheduled to begin at 2:30 p.m. ET. After her announcements, Sanders is expected to take questions from the press. Likely topics are below.

JFK assassination documents released: At the last minute, President Trump decided to grant the requests from various intelligence agencies to withhold many records related to former President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, possibly the most interesting ones. Questions linger about whether Mr. Trump will allow records that are merely potentially embarrassing to the agencies, and not pertinent to national security concerns, to be withheld.

What really happened in Niger?: The more questions the Pentagon and outside reports answer about what led to the deaths of four Americans in Niger, the more questions arise. Critics want to know why there wasn’t additional support for the team, and military records show the soldiers involved had limited combat experience

  • DreadPikathulhu

    Blah blah blah, the President and I haven’t discussed that, blah blah, you’re the one with the problem, blah blah, ObamaHillary, blah blah, I’m really disappointed in you, blah blah, SAD.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Old dog, older tricks.

  • Tawreos

    Maybe today will be the day she manages to hate a reporter to death.

    • Nic Peterson

      She’s got that guilty Golden Corral look, if ya know what I mean.

      • another_steve

        Man and I once ate at a Bob Evans restaurant.

        Been on high cholesterol meds ever since.

  • Michael R
    • “Sarah, Table 6 STILL hasn’t received their strawberry waffle order.”

      • Xiao Ai: The Social Gadfly

        She’ll put in the reorder right now. She accidently took it to another stom,. er table.

      • greenmanTN

        I’m Sluggo and I’ll be your waitress…

  • Lazycrockett

    I’ll just spend the time talking to the wall.

    • billbear1961

      You’ll get more valid information–a LOT more.

  • PickyPoussin
  • vorpal 😼

    MAKE IT STOP!
    Such a low ratio of information to noise and ugly.

  • Todd20036

    Dog & Pony show.

    But the dog is ugly, and the pony is dead.

    And the dog is still beating up the pony

  • Bryan

    Those mic caps, though. Sheesh.

  • bkmn
  • Leo

    She’s almost laughing at some of the adjectives. Even she doesn’t believe what she’s saying.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Is she going to come out in Halloween costume?

    • bkmn

      How would you tell the difference? Would she have a broom?

    • Tawreos

      Looks like Spicy took the bunny suit with him.

    • Rex

      Why should today be any different?

    • edrex

      she’s already used up the mummy look.

  • Leo

    OT. Anyone here with Twitter should start following Bertrand btw.

    • bkmn

      If Pompeo tries that his own staff might take him out

      • Leo

        Many of his own staff long-standing there can’t stand him. Multiple off the record sources on FP’s “CIA theocracy” story – we can’t forget that. They wouldn’t have spoken out unless they felt they needed to.

      • William

        … to the ball game?

    • billbear1961

      If so, people better be ready to FILL the streets of all major cities, especially Washington, with massive and relentless protests–something they should ALREADY be doing NOW.

      • Xiao Ai: The Social Gadfly

        Frustrating as all hell, in’t it?

        • billbear1961

          Yes, it is–this goddamned country DISGUSTS me!!

    • William

      Rachel Maddow should open the show tonight with this story.

    • The_Wretched

      Pompeo is a trumpanzee. i wonder how it’s going.

  • licuado de platano

    She wears a pearl necklace.

    • Lazycrockett

      pearls before swine.

    • Tawreos

      Well Daddy gave it to her so she will keep it forever

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      She needs to clean it

  • Rex

    I hear the Russians have a fake SHS sex tape, but they didn’t release it because they knew no one would believe she has sex.

  • Ninja0980

    She’ll lie, lie and lie some more.

  • safari
    • Leo

      There are so many ways I want to translate that expression

      1) Why am I here
      2) What is life
      3) I hope my kid didn’t light the roof on fire

      • MT YVR

        3) I hope my boss didn’t light the roof on fire.

        There. Fixed. 😛

    • William

      The man in that ad will draw back a nub.

  • Gustav2

    bwahahahahahahah Carter.

  • Gustav2

    No Sarah, no one likes you.

  • Leo

    this guy takes three years to form a question. every. fucking. conference. it’s mind numbing.

  • Gustav2

    Is it collusion to PAY a Brit for oppo research?

    • billbear1961

      NO

      • Gustav2

        Did the Trump campaign PAY for oppo research or just rely on the Russians?

        • billbear1961

          They conspired with foreign agents for dirt on Hillary and for OTHER help from a hostile foreign government to subvert their own country’s election, promising them they would LIFT sanctions the second they were in office.

          Trump tried, immediately in January, but was stopped.

          Congress has overwhelmingly passed a law, that Trump signed, insisting even severer sanctions be imposed on Russia. He’s almost a MONTH late putting that law into effect. Tillerson has shut down the office at State that oversees the implementation of sanctions.

          The Executive branch is BREAKING THE LAW, and NO ONE is doing ANYTHING ABOUT IT!!

          Where is the USELESS press?!

          Where are the USELESS Democrats?!

          Why has this Republic NO TRUE DEFENDERS?!

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    She’s gained weight

    • billbear1961

      Good!

    • Rex

      Stress eater.

      • safari

        I can identify with that.

        • Todd20036

          You’ve eaten stress eaters too?

          Whew! I thought that was just me.

    • edrex

      no calories expelled if all one purges is bile.

    • kareemachan

      I had the same thought. Every appearance has her looking pudgier and pudgier.

  • Leo

    Uranium fucking one. Didn’t we solve this whole thing 5 fucking years ago. I want something like the right wing media machine, Jesus. And NO, podcasts like Crooked Media don’t count. I’m done taking the high road. Fuck’s sake.

  • JoeMyGod
    • Gustav2

      Do you not pay attention to the rest of the world?

      • Gustav2

        Or are you too busy keeping your Hillary lies straight?

    • Well, they have to align themselves with the Republicans’ newest favorite Senate candidate, Roy Moore, who wants to throw every LGBT person into prison, ideally on track for summary executions.

    • GayOldLady

      What? You’re not “aware of the details”? The details are that Egypt is criminalizing homosexuality, isn’t that enough? Goddamn, we know you’re a homophobe so why don’t you find the courage to just say it at a press conference.

      • Todd20036

        Because saying, “I won’t condemn it because that’s what I’d like to see in the US, and we may get that if SCOTUS decides that a baker’s feelings is more important than a gay couple’s civil rights.” would not make for a good sound bite.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    My audio suddenly failed.

    Praise be !

  • Boreal
  • Boreal
    • yes b’y

      I think her ass would have more dimpling

    • LeeCMH

      When I do that, I call it, “trumpeting for Jeeeeeeeeesus.”

  • Leo

    These keep getting shorter

  • Treant
  • JWC

    Sarah is like the 3 degrees from TRUMP UNIVERSITY BS ( bull shit) MS (more of the same) and a PHD (pilled higher and deeper)

  • Boreal
  • PickyPoussin
    • Boreal

      No!

    • PickyPoussin

      …..this type of weather coming to the midwest…and the orange dingleberry and trumpturds are talking about cutting LIHEAP. Yeah, let the norther states freeze.

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      We got few flurries. The windchill is horrible.
      Probably have to finally start the furnace later

      • PickyPoussin

        We fired up the boiler last week as we always do (early) to see it’s working properly. Had to call in repair for an adjustment…glad we did. Supposed to be 25F tomorrow night here. possible snowflakes.

        • GayOldLady

          I checked my central heat out too. We’re having some cool weather and it’s supposed to get to 38F tonight. I little on the cool side for Dixie in October.

          • Boreal

            That’s our temp for tonight. Very warm still for late Oct here and still leaves on some of the trees.

          • GayOldLady

            We don’t lose our leaves until late November. I remember one year I was still mulching leaves 2 weeks before Xmas. We’re suppose to get down to 32F tomorrow night and 30F Sunday night. Very unusual this far South.

          • Boreal

            Normally by now I’ve done most of the cleanup but not this year. We’ve also usually had several fires by this point in the season and it hasn’t been cold enough to have one yet this fall.

        • Gustav2

          That’s cold enough to freeze your picky off.

      • Butch

        Raining here in the Central Upper Peninsula but I fired up the wood stove in the living room a few days ago and the critters are all huddled around it. It’s a 120-year-old farmhouse that tends to be on the drafty side. Luckily it’s also small so we can manage to heat it.

        • Ragnar Lothbrok

          Sounds cozy.

          • Butch

            I was determined not to be out in January (again) assuring myself that “it’s not so bad if you’re dressed for it,” and we got about 10 cords split and stacked over the summer, so we should be ready.

        • safari

          The Central Upper Peninsula is a mysterious place.

      • Tomcat

        Everyone will have to by weekend ending.

      • NMNative

        Down right cold here. Will only get to 70 degrees today! Darn New Mexico weather. Tomorrows only supposed to be 73. Time to break out the winter undies.

        • Ragnar Lothbrok

          Pics ??!!

    • Treant
    • Oscarlating Wildely

      Philly still has pretty much all (green) leaves and we have barely hit sweatshirt season. Although the route to NYC and NJ has had some glorious displays.

      Leaves will just fall and die here without a change in hue. Trump, take note.

      • Galvestonian

        68 here today but that is cold for the island – it’ll be back in the 80’s by next week – our average winter temps are in the mid-60’s but generally we don’t see it that cold until the middle of December – everybody gets all bundled up with the quilted jackets mufflers and gloves – thank God our winter only lasts about 6 weeks. By Feb. 1st it’s in the mid 70’s. I might even have to cover my young coconut palms if the temperature drops any lower.

    • coram nobis

      Mid 80s in the Bay Area today.

      • LeeCMH

        Oh no. That’s why I inserted the apostrophe.

  • Boreal
    • coram nobis

      At least she’s a person of color. What is it today, magenta?

      • Boreal

        The color is ‘uncooked pork.’

        • coram nobis

          That’s not kosher.

  • Blake J Butler

    Instead of pearls, maybe she should wear thunder beads instead.

    Another day without the picture of her in the striped white schmatta.

    Something a couple of the Clinton accusers have said on twitter.
    And they wonder why women don’t come forward and why no one believes their claims about Bill Clinton.

    • Oscarlating Wildely

      Go to hell, you evil bitch.

      And if you have a daughter, your biggest fear should be that she will have to deal with someone like you and your administration should she ever be assaulted.

      • Ninja0980

        Her dad was one of the few to defend Josh Duggar, let’s not forget that.

    Ms. SANDERS: First question.
    DWIGHT MANNSBERDAN, Fox: On the JFK files withheld, do they have anything to do with Hillary Clinton’s involvement?
    Ms. SANDERS: I wish to officially, completely, categorically and unbelievably deny that. You?
    ANNA GRAHAM, Washington Post: Care to comment about the Whitefish power contract in Puerto Rico?
    Ms. SANDERS: No.
    OLGA VOLKYERSOV, RT: Will the White House confirm the Clinton campaign’s collusion with certain sources in Moscow?
    Ms. SANDERS: Talk to me later, Olga.

    Most important bit was the last 15 seconds. She offered to take the reporters kids to the oval office to have Donny the Unfit “sugar them up.”

  • bkmn

    Is it true that Sarah married Col. Sanders so she always had access to fresh fried chicken?

    • geoffalnutt

      Sarah Sanders Sanders??

  • Friday

    So, even on the scheduled document release, Drumph boasted and lied. Of course.

  • Galvestonian

    I swear that she gets her dresses made by some Mennonite woman’s group …

  • Gianni

    She’s looking a bit beaten down. Is it possible that being Christian and having to swear to all the lies her master tells every day could be the cause? Or perhaps the job of trying to put any kind of positive spin on his daily display of idiocy is taking its toll.
