LIVE VIDEO: White House Press Briefing

Mediaite reports:

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will meet the press corps in a briefing set for 1:00 p.m. ET. What will she likely be asked about today? There are still many questions as to the timeline of events in the Rob Porter scandal, which has led to the opening of an oversight committee probe by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC.)

There’s also President Donald Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, and his admission that he paid porn star Stormy Daniels $130k of his own money for, well, no reason, really. He has been extremely cagey with details, but it certainly wasn’t to cover-up the fact that she spanked the president’s butt with an issue of Forbes. That would be just insane.

      It almost looks like he has done that before or something…

      • Joe in PA

        [swoon]

    • Cipher

      Forwarding this to a LONG list of interested parties for review and analysis.

  • PickyPecker
  • SkokieGuy

    Will today’s couture make a nod to Valentine’s day? We know Sarah’s outfits have clearly incorporated sofa fabric. Perhaps this will be today’s inspiration? Of course with pearls, for class!

    • Gustav2
      • SkokieGuy

        Jumper with a hood?

    • edrex

      first, she’d need to be familiar with the concept of love.

      • SkokieGuy

        She’s no doubt familiar with chocolate and that’s a big part of VD day for some.

    • CharlestonDave

      I’m hoping she finally gives that floral print outfit to Goodwill. My cabana needs new curtains!

      • SkokieGuy

        Your cabana deserves better curtains. And a cabana boy!

        • CharlestonDave

          Do you think Adam’s doing anything after the Olympics?

          • SkokieGuy / Larry / Uncle Lar’

            Dancing with the stars? Sports commentator?

          • CharlestonDave

            pfft…those are seasonal! I’m still offering the cabana boy job. Haven’t heard back from him yet. 😉

  • KarenAtFOH

    Will she be sporting that attractive black target cross thingy?

  • gaycuckhubby
    • I still think pot legalization should be part of our arsenal to retake Congress.

      • PickyPecker

        Pot legalization; universal healthcare for all citizens; affordable higher education for those who wish it….there are many good policies on which the Dems could run. WIll they, is the question.

        • The_Wretched

          Hell, pick those three and go hard on repeating the message. It’d work.

  • another_steve

    She let Trump grab her pussy. As a result, she got those pearls.

    • The_Wretched

      And she’s never washing her neck again.

      • edrex

        that’s simply because there are parts she can’t reach.

    • Dreaming Vertebrate

      Fake pearls!

  • The_Wretched

    Again?

    I might have to skip this one.

  • Cuberly Deux

    “As bad as the Comey firing,” one White House official bluntly assessed, expressing a sentiment shared this week by several senior Trump aides—that the tumult and mismanagement of the past few days is only matched by mayhem kicked off by the sacking of FBI Director James Comey in May.”

    I hope someone takes a moment to ask Huckleberry what Kushner’s security status is.

    • Joe in PA

      April Ryan tried yesterday…she stupidly didn’t identify by name. Huckabilly dodged and weaved…typical.

      • Cuberly Deux

        Yeah I saw that exchange. That was when Scarah literally took a nose dive. It was off the rails from then on.

        • KCMC

          Oh, please. GIF????

  • William

    Break out the boots and shovels, it’s Bullshit Time!

    • Cuberly Deux

      It got so deep yesterday we may need waders.

  • Karl Dubhe

    I think I’ll boot up an old documentary about the French Revolution. Watching that is giving me hope for our future.

    • CharlestonDave

      “Do you hear the people sing? Singing the song of angry men?”

      • Karl Dubhe

        That was a later revolt, iirc. Yah, the book was written in the 1860s, so the character was arrested after the Napoleonic wars and just before the revolts of the 1840s, which were world-wide revolts actually. 🙂

  • Lazycrockett
  • Snarky

    I’m sure the topic will mostly be Porter and Kelly and Hicks, oh my! Plus the House Oversight Committee getting involved now. And she will try to shift blame to West Wing staff, again. Meanwhile the WaPo has a delicious story about the VA chief’s lies to an ethics committee about his European travel with his wife. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/veterans-affairs-chief-shulkin-staff-misled-ethics-officials-about-european-trip-report-finds/2018/02/14/f7fbc020-0c3a-11e8-8b0d-891602206fb7_story.html

    • The_Wretched

      The blame lies with the WhiteHouse personnel office and we have no idea who those people are or who they report to. We never met them and is you see them in photographs with us, they were just there to bring us coffee. Next Question. No April, I have to keep this moving. Next Question.

      • Snarky

        That’s a scary good impersonation.

      • Joe in PA

        She very nearly DID say just that yesterday. FFS. Oh, and not to put too fine a point on it…it was the White House Security Office that she didn’t know who they reported to. Someone suggested that they just came up with that office yesterday. 🙁

    • coram nobis

      Next story up on JMG. Apparently tickets to Wimbledon is official VA business.

      • Snarky

        Yes! Glad Joe added that. It’s delicious.

  • JWC

    Oh the Agoooonnnnyy Oh the wait Oh the lies

    • Lars Littlefield

      Moooooo!

  • Lars Littlefield

    Again with more lies? So soon? Why, it seems only yesterday when we suffered the insult of having to hear Kentucky Fried Sanders moo to the press corp. Oh, wait . . . yeah, I forgot.

  • Statistics Palin

    Here comes Huckabooboo!

  • Nic Peterson

    Sarah won’t be upset if nobody buys her chocolate today. She keeps a stash nearby at all times.

  • PickyPecker

    My feed says ‘Live in 87 minutes.’ GAHHHH

  • Lazycrockett

    So Valentine Red?

    • PickyPecker

      I’m getting a hot-pink vibe.

      • Joe in PA

        But what color do you think Sarah’s dress will be?

        Teeheehee.

      • BJORN RAGNVALDR

        Put that toy away.

  • Why bother? It’s going to be nothing but lies and deflections from the moment she opens her pie-hole.

  • Lazycrockett

    Wonder if she will have a bigger ash smug than Mulvaney.

    • Joe in PA

      Not that I’m in any way knowledgeable…but I’m pretty sure that’s just a Catholic thing.

      • Karl Dubhe

        Nope, it’s done by Anglicans here. 🙂 And various other groups as they flock onto the trains to daub people who are willing.

        • Joe in PA

          Thanks.

  • coram nobis

    Today is St. Valentine’s Day, so let us remember that great American businessman, Al Capone.

  • Lazycrockett

    Did Obama have these daily and the media just didn’t cover them?

  • KCMC
  • Lars Littlefield

    Rather than have your sense of decency and intelligence once again be insulted with bonive modulated falsehoods from Kentucky Fried Sanders, may I suggest a very pleasant brain cleanse? We discovered “My Next Guest” on Netflix last night. So far there appears to be only two installments of David Letterman’s new pod cast venture, but they are very good.

    Spend an hour soaking up wonder and hope as David Letterman interviews President Obama for an hour. Highlights include intelligent conversation, complete grammatically correct sentences, some gentle humor, and insight on how to correct our current situation as a nation.

    Once again, that’s Next Guest, with David Letterman on Netflix.

    • PickyPecker

      Thanks for the tip, Lars!

      • Lars Littlefield

        Seriously, it’s like having poisons cleared from your blood.

    • Joe in PA

      Oh yea, I watched the day it was available. The George Clooney one was not high on my priorities…but it was really good as well. Hubs and I disagree on Letterman’s humor (I like it). The next one is Malala.

      http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-24379018

      • Lars Littlefield

        Best humor in the interview, (Letterman) “Unlike you. I attended Ball State University. the Harvard of Muncie, Indiana.”

  • Steven B

    Check THIS out.
    FEC filings of Trump Campaign showing extra rent paid at time Stormy Daniels was paid (by his lawyer? (NOT!). Note the doubling up of rent payments in November to avoid suspicion.

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/148a4bca6b3214d1bd39c66cd5ba009da5f6ed376ee85736976a783ba845c75a.jpg

    • The_Wretched

      That’s an oversight I’m sure. Happens all the time and that it’s exactly the amount paid to Stormy is a total coincidence.

      That Cohen is part of the Trump Org. and could cut checks from its funds is also a coincidence.

      • coram nobis

        “Double your pleasure, double your fun”, but this gum might stick to ol’ Make America Goodtime Again.

    • Joe in PA

      It just shows how fucking stupid these people are. Come on Mueller hurry this thing up.

      • Steven B

        For sure it needs to be investigated.

  • TrollopeReader

    Time to dial up the Snark-o-Meter, again.

    *sigh*

  • JWC

    Because its going to be a difficult day for Sarah she will do one of two things or both She will bring in several “opening acts’ and be as late as possible to minimize her time with the “nasty press rabble”

    • Gianni

      The press really should just let her read her prepared non-answers, diversions, and lies and they can fill in their questions later. Sarah can then get in and out in record time.

      • JWC

        Lawrence reported last night that Sarah had told them to stay on topic when Mrs Turtle spoke

        • Gianni

          I saw that and I believe the press did obey her.

  • TrollopeReader

    Pence just gave Trump another verbal blow-job. Blech.

    • TrollopeReader

      n.b. He was also verbally giving one to General Kelly ….

      blech!

  • JWC

    O/T Happy Valentines day

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      Thanks. You too

    • PickyPecker

      Happy Valentines Day to you as well, JWC!!

  • TrollopeReader

    Did Sarah hand-bake Valentine’s cookies for the press corps??

  • Sam_Handwich

    c-span says 2:30

    • Gustav2

      That means 3:00

      • TrollopeReader

        3:48 with a “I gotta go” at 4:00 sharp …

  • Tempus Fuggit
  • Bluto

    Been moved to 3:00, which means 3:45.

    • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

      Which means there will be very, very little time for questions. See how that works?

  • JWC

    Fuck each time i check this site the timer has gone up not down

  • JWC

    An interesting discussion regarding Sarah several female reporters have stated over the past few days on her lopsided loyalty She apparently know who signs her pay cheque She, as a woman , defends Trump over the rights of women These reports describe her as a liar and does nothing to advance the cause of femininity or even the “Me To”

    • Cipher

      See the 52% of white women who voted for Trump…. “Me too?” [B*tch please…: side eye with added Michelle Obama eye roll). And don’t get me started on ‘Frick’ and ‘Frack’ or whatever the two black women who support Trump on YouTube call themselves.

      • JWC

        In Canada Jr Trudeau at least makes an attempt

      • JWC

        is it conceivable that this 525 of whit women voted not indecently but as hubby told them to or voted the politics of the household with little other thought?

        • Cipher

          Conceivable? Sure. But that, for its own separate reasons would be, in my opinion, pretty indecent.

  • JWC

    Once again i amaze myself waiting for this bitch and her lying act I guess i just like watching her fry herself

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    I can only hope she is writing her letter of resignation.

  • TrollopeReader

    Now per Katy Tur … 4pm …..as she said, they’re in a whole lot of hurt, and trying to draft what to say …

    • JWC

      it would be so simple if they just said what happened but instead they have to manufacture some master lie that is bullet proof. There in lies their failing

      • stevenj

        Possibly they are having difficulty locating on short notice 15 gallons of shiny gloss to cover everything up with.

  • JWC

    well she is nearing an hour late

    • Bluto

      It was postponed twice from 1:00 to 2:30 to 3:00. 15 minutes late as of now, which means another 30 minutes. She deserves the shoe treatment.

      • JWC

        Trumps minions are writing the lies as fast as they can Poor sarah is trying to keep up She would do a better job just walking in saying “This is bullshit .I don’t need it trump is an idiot and i am outta here

  • Joe in PA

    Are we still waiting?

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      Sorta.
      The shooting might cancel the whole thing

      • Bluto

        Merely an impromptu freedom rally.

    • JWC

      she is 1.20 late

  • Gianni

    Sarah’s doo is quite becoming, isn’t it? I just don’t know what it’s becoming.

    • The_Wretched

      She’s working up enough asymmetries that they cancel each other out.

  • Bluto

    2 postponements & an hour late. Just call it off, hamhock mary.

    • The_Wretched

      done, it’s gone.

    • yes b’y

      hahaha hamhock mary

  • ‘Til Tuesday

    I’m mystified as to why the media even shows up? Everything she says is a lie, and when they ask her questions she either lies some more or doesn’t give an answer. If someone asks her a difficult question, she just slaps them down and moves on, and the media lets her get away with it. So what’s the point? It’s a totally useless exercise of no news value whatsoever. It would be something if the media printed something like “Sarah lies to media about x today”, but they don’t. They just dutifully re-broadcast her propaganda and most people ignore it. The media is worse than useless on this imo.

  • Joe in PA

    Sam Sandwich says it has been cancelled. Just as well. 🙁

    • Phil Touchette

      The media claims it’s due to the school shooting.

  • TrollopeReader

    yep … xxld
