LIVE VIDEO: White House Press Briefing

How many questions will she get about “Pocahantas”?

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will answer questions from reporters Tuesday afternoon following President Trump’s trip to Capitol Hill to rally Senate Republicans at their weekly policy luncheon ahead of a key committee vote on tax reform. Democratic leaders abruptly pulled out of a planned meeting at the White House with Trump after he tweeted earlier Tuesday that he didn’t “see a deal” to avoid a government shutdown.

  • DreadPikathulhu

    I’ll leave it to those with stronger stomaches than I have. I’m more nauseous than usual this week from the atrocities of this administration.

    • Lumpy Gaga

      Just the CFPB drama alone should be able to fill a day.

  • Butch

    I truly don’t know why reporters continue to waste their time with this farce.

    • clay

      They do it so we don’t have to.
      Which leads me to wonder why they bother to air it live, and not just use a smaller press pool.

  • Tawreos

    I really am not feeling a session with a surly person who either doesn’t answer questions or answers them with word salad and lies.

  • Gustav2

    “How are the Democrats being obstructionists when the President was the first to say there would be no deal?”

    • DreadPikathulhu

      “The President is the author of The Art of the Deal. If there is anyone who knows how to deal, it is the President.”

      • Gustav2

        “He really isn’t the author is he? It was completely ghost written, right?”

        • DreadPikathulhu

          That would be a follow-up question and we’re not allowed to ask those.

          • Gustav2

            Tag team!

          • Lumpy Gaga

            Unless you first tell us what you’re thankful for.

        • clay

          And the ghost-writer said he’s a gross idiot who doesn’t know jack about economics or management.

        • thatotherjean

          Author? Has he even read the book?

          • Gustav2

            The only one I know of was on his night table, it was Hitler quotes.

    • Ninja0980

      Because it’s always the Democrats fault doncha know.

      Causality is just another discredited idea to the right. Later happening events cause the ones that proceed them in time.

  • Lazycrockett

    Yeah not today I find it hard to stomach her constant lies more than once a week. What a pathetic vile evil woman she is. Pox on her and hers.

    There is no communication in this administration.

    • clay

      Oh, fuck, now we have to watch it.
      Wait! I have a 3:00 meeting! Hooray!

      • Gustav2

        Count your blessings young man!

      • Paula

        Not yet, Clay. That day is coming, though.
        Mandatory Donnie viewing. The ratings will be tremendous! The best ratings!

        • clay

          I guess I can always go back to being blind . . .

          • DreadPikathulhu

            I hear that chronic masturbation leads to blindness. There are worse ways to spend this administation.

          • Paula

            Can he do it just until he needs glasses?

        • Frostbite

          I’m sure the ratings for his trial will be phenomenal!

      • DreadPikathulhu

        I guess I will have to watch it. Will he be declaring that bombing is to start immediately on North Korea?

        • AmeriCanadian

          North Korea was plastered all over foxnews.com earlier today. Almost a foreboding.

          • The_Wretched

            Telegraphing where to send the bombs.

        • Lazycrockett

          The Pool is a different group of reporters than the ones attending the usual press conference.

    • MikeBx2

      He’ll use the time to blame the Democratic leaders for being unwilling to discuss. Before he makes any remarks, he needs to read out loud his “Chuck and Nancy” tweet.

    • Todd20036

      Wait, is he going to be talking to a pool? In his bathing suit? NO THANKS

  • JackNasty

    Sarah Huckabee Sanders has one thing going for her; she’s able to tell lies without twitching.

    • Tawreos

      being dead inside from being a Huckabee probably helps.

  • TheManicMechanic

    I expect Sarah Bobbleeyes Chunkybee to ask everyone what they are giving/getting for Xmas before taking questions.

  • There are rumors of some sort of bombshell announcement coming today. It might have to do with Mueller’s investigation that is freaking with White House out. Drudge (who is somewhat turncoat on Trump these days) is writing about it.

    • clay

      Or it could just be Donny acting butt-hurt after McConnell chewed him out for fucking up the negotiations around Ryan’s “kill the poor” budget plan.

  • another_steve

    Read my lips:

    No. Gay. Male. Approves. Of. Her. Wardrobe.

    • Gustav2

      I approve of her wardrobe choices, they show her exactly as she is.

      • AmeriCanadian

        Exactly. She is a Huckabilly after all.

        • Gustav2

          As “smart” and “sophisticated” as her wardrobe.

      • another_steve

        Her blouses and assorted tops turned me gay.

    • I like to imagine Sarah has one gay male acquaintance with whom she thinks she’s friends and takes all his advice on fashion and makeup… but secretly, he loathes her and enjoys making her wear the most ridiculous shit imaginable.

      • another_steve

        Lol.

        CONSPIRACY THEORY!!!

        Will Breitbart and Info Wars pick up on it?

          There are meds for it – but even with them, no one will ask you out for a date for next Saturday night.

  • Treant

    He clearly said, “Poke my Hondas.” It was an indirect reference to the trade deficit…

  • OT — This is very minor — but this is the latest press release for Buckingham Palace on the Royal Wedding. Isn’t it a bit rude and tacky to tell the world that the groom’s family is paying for the wedding in a Press Release? Or is this one way of saying that if you are not immediate family of the bride, don’t even THINK about an invitation on her side? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/28d1cfceee3938234669b9c8d503bc552ff3a0e053bece5bbc03b81c0f5bfb79.jpg

    • Gustav2

      That’s about not having the UK taxpayers foot the bill.

      • AH thank you. I thought it was about not inviting second cousins from Long Island and kvetching about chicken at the wedding instead of Prime Rib.

        • Gustav2

          Every large outlay is scrutinized to make sure it is “official government business” related. And soon to be 6th in the line of succession doesn’t make this “official”

      • Yeah, it’s been a point of contention among the British subjects regarding the cost of maintaining a Royal Family which doesn’t actually do all that much governing anymore.

        Half a century ago, in the aftermath of WW2, pomp & circumstance were gladly borne…but not so much in the 21st century.

    • Treant

      They’re actually saying, “This wedding cost a friggin’ fortune given where it’s being held. We didn’t want to charge the people, nor bankrupt the bride’s family for all this, so we’re personally going to pony up the cost.”

      • I would love to be royal. You get to call St. George’s Chapel Windsor which seats 800 and is considered one of the most perfect examples of English High Gothic Architecture (with the best ceiling anywhere) “an intimate wedding venue”. The make it sound like a drive-in chapel in Vegas. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5f0882e8e4af9c711eff76ff6a34ac2740b7598677743ffb21d2f59880315f79.jpg

        • Gustav2

          That 800 will just be the cousins.

        • Treant

          That little place? Pshaw, that’s nothing.

          • Gustav2

            It is merely called a “chapel” for a reason!

        • Gustav2

          And grandpa Edinburgh won’t be far from his O2 tank.

    • thatotherjean

      It’s traditional for the bride’s family to pay for the wedding, but I doubt that the Markles are up to footing the bill for a royal wedding.Besides, Her Majesty has the cash to do it up right.

      • Gustav2

        That announcement is telling the UK taxpayers they are not footing the bill for the wedding or reception, now the security is another matter.

        • thatotherjean

          Eh, since Her Majesty is undoubtedly attending, the security has to be there, wherever Harry and Meghan would hold it. At least the taxpayers aren’t on the hook for the rest of the festivities.

          • Gustav2

            They will be on full alert with all the foreign crown heads and politicians there.

  • Tomcat

      The one and only time Beverly Archer ever looked halfway decent.

    • Oscarlating Wildely

      [Laugh tracks are awful. Just awful. Only sharing.]

  • Conspiracy theory: Ms Huckabee Sanders is intentionally picking god-awful outfits so that those with taste will be distracted from the shit she’s saying. How else could anyone dress themselves this badly. What the fuck is with that dress…IN NOVEMBER! It’s a press conference not a backyard barbecue…and IT’S NOVEMBER!!!!

    Anyway, back to mocking her bullshit.

    • sadoldguy

      I think she is hoping to be mocked so she can complain about how mean reporters are to her.

      • None of them are nearly as mean as whoever sold her that hideous dress.

  • Oscarlating Wildely

    You know she stole the drapes from the nursing home down the street. Evil wench, preying on the elderly like that! Have you no shame, madame?

    But a bitch is just a female dog. Who has a problem with female dogs? Female dogs are great! Who could possibly object to being called a bitch?”

    So, yeah, Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a bitch. And context is everything. And I haven’t seen “Pocahontas.”

  • TampaZeke

    I think the most offensive thing about Ms. Huckabilly lately has been her outfits. She’s a Southerner and she thinks that a white floral outfit is appropriate in late November?
