Trump holds first solo press conference putting forth more chaos, continued lies, leaving more questions about Russia.
At his first solo press conference today, President Trump continued to talk up fake numbers regarding his massive electoral college win. PolitiFact has the real numbers here.
The president’s press conference continued with more unanswered questions delving into Trump’s campaign Russia ties as he routinely deflected from answering questions and told reporters the questions were not friendly. In Trump’s bizarro world, he claimed leaks were occurring but the news were fake as he went on to muse about the tone of the reporting and which cable news were seemingly getting it right. After bashing the media for over an hour and telling reporters to sit down, he turned and waived as if at a raucous campaign rally and concluded by saying “Thank you, it’s a great honor to be with you.”
